So??? You must be asking yourself...well it's a big deal because it might point to a couple of sub plots that might be going on here.....
1. It adds a significant amount of credibility to what Harry is saying. Reid is not only a senator, leader of the Democrats in the Senate, leader of the Senate BUT he is also a Mormon. That adds a lot of heft to what he has to say. You may think it's not important but for those sitting on the fence, that is a critical point. Trust me...I've used it as the last resort in my arguments and it's ALWAYS been the last nail in the coffin.
2. This may also point to a broader narrative. Mitt has always been Mitt. He has assumed that normal rules don't apply to him(Seamus, bullying kids, offshore accounts, dressage, retroactivity etc. etc. etc.). He has thrown his wealth around as a shield to protect him from the riff raff. That could also mean that the number of people he has pissed of in his life in the Mormon community is also significant. The Mormons are perhaps not ALL united in their support(remember the Huntsman's). There are probably some pretty interesting stories to be told, if they ever come out. The fact that a fairly senior, prominent Mormon is willing to go on the Senate floor and call out Mitt is pretty incredible, if you think about it? If Mitt has been Mitt all his life, then his behavior has probably not changed. Imagine if you were a young Mormon person when Mitt was off in France living in a villa with servants etc. doing his mission and you were off in some corner of the third world...you might hold a grudge.
3. The "you people" comment was not just words uttered by Ann Romney...it's a way of thinking, it's a way of life for the uber rich. I've seen it, been there, experienced it...it's palpable and very real. And it breeds a ton of resentment. If Mitt and his family have been accorded some kind of exalted status amongst the Mormon faith because of his wealth, it has to have created a fair amount of backlash.
By the way, I saw some people start calling him Rmoney...a slight modification of that would be R money......our money....hehehehehe!
I sure hope the Obama team does not let up on this issue. I don't think Reid is correct in what he is saying BUT I do think that R Money cannot release the taxes for other reasons...too many foreign accounts, tax doges, residency issues between Utah and Mass. related to him running for governor etc. etc.
