Harry Reid Calls Hu Jintao A ‘Dictator’

From the Politico:

Reid calls Chinese leader ‘dictator’

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) labeled Chinese President Hu Jintao a “dictator,” just as President Barack Obama prepares to host the Chinese leader on Wednesday at a state dinner aimed at soothing tensions between the two world powers.

Reid’s off-the-cuff comments came Tuesday night during a televised interview with Las Vegas journalist Jon Ralston, who asked the majority leader whether the bipartisan tax compromise Obama struck with Republican leaders last year was a good deal for the country.

“I am going to go back to Washington and meet with the President of China. He is a dictator. He can do a lot of things through the form of government they have. Maybe I shouldn’t have said dictator, but they have a different type of government then we have, and that is an understatement,” Reid said in the interview.

“So we have to work in the system we have, the best system ever devised to rule the affairs of men and women,” Reid continued. “And one of the few ways we get things done, in fact the most important way we get things done, is through compromise. It’s not a bad word, and that is how we get things done.” …

Leave it to Harry Reid to screw up even speaking the plain truth.

    Harry Reid admits the U.S. is being ruled by him & others. Soon we will have to learn the American bow.

    “..we have, the best system ever devised to rule the affairs of men and women,” Reid continued.”

    Sounds like Harry Reid is a secret
    admirer: “Gosh! If I could govern like
    the Chinese elite, I could get out of
    Nevada at last!”

    But that’s just it…leftists CAN’T speak the plain truth. The way these people think, it would scare the hell out of far too many voters.

    Reid’s clearly jealous. He and Pelosi raised the dictatorship bar to a whole new level in the U.S. FDR would be proud. Reid accusing anyone else of being a dictator is like Madonna lecturing her followers on the virtues of chastity.

      I agree. It was a term of endearment, and extreme envy. Hu and his party just don’t get embarrassed on the world stage by their rubes like the Democrats did. And there’s nearly three times more, with a solid fraction of them still living in bitter poverty. That’s power people like Reid dream about nightly.

    So who got the degree from which:

    Harry Reid: A BS from the Barack Obama School of Backtracking in Public Speeches, with a concentration in What I Meant to Say…

    Barack Obama: A BS from the Harry Reid School of Praising our Enemies Under Thinly Veiled Insults. His senior thesis being: “One Can Never Reference Theirself Enough…Including Myself”

    Harry, get over it okay! It sounds like you just found out that this commie is a dictator. What are you so worried about anyhow? You, Pelosi and Obama were dictators just a few months ago when you morons closed the doors to the public, breaking a campaign promise on “transparency” and rammed this BS healthcare bill up our rearends. You know fully well you would like to be a dictator yourself. In 2012 the elections again will reflect what you have pulled off in the last 2 years and for all of your liberal Congressmen/Senators,,,,,,,,enjoy the unemployment lines!

    What? Did the Chi-com’s just raise Reid’s interest rates on campaign loans? Now that’s a dictator! Haw-haw! Pay your fiddler Harry.

    Memo to: Harry Reid
    From: DNC

    Geez Harry, didn’t you read the memo about not openly admiring dictators?
    I mean, we sent it out and marked it as “Must Read!”
    If you keep this up, the great unwashed masses may figure out what we’re really up to.
    Please check with us before making any more public statements, we all have to be singing the same tune!

    • Liberals Demise says:

      Please excuse Harry.
      He just graduated from the University of Joe Biden Oration.
      He be proud!!

    If all democrat proposals were signed into law, the US’s charges of human right violations by China would be rendered moot.
