Why Harry Reid Hates Mitt Romney

BuzzFeed: "Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's scathing attacks on everything from Mitt Romney's personal integrity to his devotion to his faith won't be going away for one simple reason, people close to the Democrat say: Reid personally, deeply loathes Mitt Romney."

"Reid, a fellow Mormon and one-time boxer who has never been known as much of an orator, has emerged unexpectedly this year as the Democrats' most effective attack dog, doing particular damage to Romney with questions and innuendo about his personal tax returns. With the election approaching fast, the Nevada senator seems to be looking for new excuses to throw a right hook."

Jon Ralston: "The piece quotes someone as saying no one put Reid up to his public outbursts, inlcuding his repeated pressing of Romney on his taxes. That's not only true, but I understand some of the Obama folks at times have wondered if Reid has gone too far."
