Reid: I Never Called Obama-Care Stories ‘Lies’

From the Republican research group, America Rising:

Harry Reid Says He Never Called ObamaCare Stories Lies …

Exactly A Month After He Called ObamaCare Stories Lies

March 26, 2014

Exactly a month ago today, Harry Reid took to the Senate floor to say that the ObamaCare horror stories that were being told across the country were lies:

“We heard about the evils of Obamacare, about the lives it’s ruining in Republicans’ stump speeches and in ads paid for by oil magnates, the Koch brothers. But in those tales, turned out to be just that: tales, stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.”

Today, Harry Reid took to the same Senate floor to say that he had never said that any ObamaCare horror stories were lies… to his recollection:

“Mr. President, the junior Senator from Wyoming has come to the floor several times recently talking about the fact that examples that he and other Republicans have given, dealing with ObamaCare, examples that they think are bad, I’ve called lies. Mr. President, that is simply untrue. I have never come to the floor, to my recollection, and I never said a word about any of the examples that Republicans have given regarding ObamaCare and how it’s not very good.”

We have always been taught not to mock the afflicted. But Harry Reid is a seriously unbalanced man in very powerful position.

And it is a position that the Democrats in the Senate have elected him to. And so it is a position they could and should remove  him from — for the good of the country.

    The descriptive “doddering old fool” comes to mind.

    The only lies we’ve heard about Obamacare are the ones coming from his mouth.

    “How can you tell when a politician is lying? His lips are moving!”
    “How can you tell when a politician is lying?” is the start of an old joke. The answer: “His lips are moving.”

    “How can you tell when a lawyer is lying?” is the most familiar form of the joke today.
    Many other people and professions have been substituted.

    The earliest form of the joke (cited in print in 1935) appears to be a wife who was asked: “How can you tell when your husband is lying?”
    The politician version dates from at least 1956.

    5 September 1956, Charleston (WV) Daily Mail, “Buick Topics” by T. M. Gardner, pg. 12, col. 1:
    We recently heard a story about a young man who had become of voting age and was taking his obligation and responsibility very seriously. He had been listening to talks by the various candidates in their public, television and radio appearances. It was all rather confusing and contradicting to this young man. So he consulted his Father for advice on how he could determine when these candidates were lying. The Father said, “Son, that’s easy. If their lips are moving, they’re lying.”

    Harry Reid is crying out for help. They’ll have to put him in a home.

    Who are you going to believe: Harry Reid or your lying eyes?

    if a tree falls in the forest……….

    if there are absolutely no consequences for telling a lie, then were you really telling a lie?

    if there are no testicles in the senate minority, are there actually any men there?
