Reid ‘Saved The World From Depression’

From the Politico:

GOP mocks Harry Reid’s stimulus claim

By: Molly Ball

Does a superhero lurk beneath the mild-mannered facade of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid?

Republicans are mocking the embattled Nevada Democrat for seeming to take credit for saving the world economy from complete destruction in an interview Thursday.

"People have been hurting — I understand that," Reid told MSNBC’s Ed Schultz. "And it doesn’t give them comfort or solace for me to tell them, ‘You know, but for me we’d be in a worldwide depression.’ They want to know what I have done for them."

The National Republican Senatorial Committee’s Brian Walsh called Reid’s statement "either the height of ignorance or arrogance or, most likely, a combination of both." …

To be fair, as far as Mr. Reid is concerned his ‘world’ was saved by the stimulus package. After all, the billions of dollars that it poured into the union coffers is all that is keeping him from being blown out by Sharron Angle.

Still, notice how little coverage there is from our mainstream media wolf pack of this latest gaffe from Mr. Reid. And what little attention it has garnered, such as here, is skewed through the prism of how the GOP is trying to exploit his comment.

Compare and contrast this to how the same news media would have treated the comment if it had come from a Republican, or even better – a supporter of the Tea Party.

In any case, Harry Reid’s comments put the lie to Mr. Obama’s recent claim that there are no ‘shovel ready jobs.’ There is Mr. Reid and another 313 Democrats in the current Congress – just for starters.

    If it weren’t for Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats, we wouldn’t be worried about a world-wide depression!
    Still, you have to give Harry credit, he’s one Democrat that’s actually proud of what he’s done.
    Listening to the candidates makes me wonder how we could possibly have a fair election since it seems that there isn’t a Democrat running!

    Ted Kennedy is steadily building fireproof benches for Reid and his ilk to look at for eternity.
    Lying in this world will bring you Hell in the next one.

    Of all the garbage liberals say and do, it is amazing to me they ran Day Quayle through the ringer for POTATO(E).

    Kennedy kills his mistress while driving drunk, gets 40 years in the Senate, Quayle puts and ‘e’ on the end of potato, liberals go crazy.

    What a thought.

    A man who doesn’t know which end of his toothbrush to use claims he saved the world.

    The Moron must be enraged today that somebody has emerged even more arrogant than he is.

    The video wasn’t clear, what he actually said was:
    If it were up to me, we’d be in a worldwide depression.”

    A little exercise:

    1)There’s how Harry sees himself.
    2)There’s how others see him.
    3)There’s how he really is.

    Usually, this is an exercise in any human relations class with two circles overlapping to form the “really is” part, if I remember correctly. However, the only parts needed when discussing this walking excrement are two and three. His contempt for people goes right to his very center. He is at least as angry as obama, if not moreso. He is dangerously intelligent in all the wrong ways. He’s the crafty, evil world-domination seeker we used to watch on our Saturday morning cartoons. (Odd how that has influenced my ability to recognize megalomaniacs so quickly.)

    Harry Reid must go. And go far. Far, far away. I’m thinking to Andromeda. It’s but 2.5 million light-years. Maybe that’s still too close.

  7. Papa Louie says:

    I, for one, have to give Harry Reid some credit. He’s responsible for preventing me from going into a deep depression. The prospect of Obama’s pet losing his job in the upcoming election has renewed my hope for the future.

    If Harry loses the election, I’ll also give him credit for a job created. But If he wins and continues to drive the economy in the same direction, I’ll give him credit for having saved or created a world depression.

    Man, he can’t even get through saying it with a straight face!, Besides – I thought The Won was ‘the messiah’. Don’t tell me there are two ! Who to bow to now? Hmm…decisions, decisions…
