Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Applauds the Loss of 36,000 American Jobs as “Really Good”
What is wrong with these people? Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid stated the following regarding today’s job losses for February 2010. Yea, really good Harry. Unless you are one of the 36,000 people who lost their jobs or their families.
“Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good.”
Actually Senator Reid when you an at least 9 other Democrat Senators lose their jobs in the 2010 midterm elections and enough Democrat House members lose their jobs to shift the power back to Republicans, that would be really good.
Harry Reid and Democrats have not only lost their minds, they have lost their souls. These people will paint any grim news as a positive for President Barack Obama even if it is at the expense of the American people. How on earth can any politician say that the loss of only 36,000 jobs is a good thing? How out of touch with the American people can Reid and the Democrats be?
Reid was trying to trumpet the jobs numbers as some kind of positive sign and then as The Gang Who Could Not Shoot Straight usually do … they blew the message.
Democrats wanted to seize on the numbers as evidence that the economic slide has stopped. Unfortunately for his colleagues, Reid mangled the message.
“Today is a big day in America,” he proclaimed. “Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good.” Reid noted that prognosticators had expected the numbers to be much worse.
Republicans immediately pounced on the campaign ad fodder from the four-term senator, who is facing a tough re-election fight this year.
“It’s difficult to think of a Washington politician who is more out of touch with working Americans than Harry Reid,” National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesman Brian Walsh said.
The blithering idiot Harry Reid actually blamed Republicans for “irresponsibly mischaracterized” his remarks on February’s jobs numbers.Reid claimed that Republicans root for failure, yet as Town Hall reminds us … it was Harry Reid who rooted for failure in Iraq when GWB was in office.
No Senator Reid, your response to 36,000 people losing their jobs and the comment really good do not belong in the same sentence or thought process. You are to blame sir, take some responsibility for your own stupid mistake and irresponsible comment. Is it any wonder why Reid has over 50% unfavorable rating in Nevada and is trailing in the polls. One of those Reid is trailing is Sue Lowden, who even before this ignorant comment by Reid had taken a larger lead Dingy Harry.
