Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Thinks Ford Motors Was Saved by Gov’t Bail Out … Ah, They Took No Bail Out


Harry Reid the clueless …

So embattled Nevada Senator and Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid stated that “they” (Democrats) decided that they needed help and if it were not for the Democrats bailing out the auto industry and Ford Motors, “they they would be gone”. Really Harry? Really! Now the Demcorats want to take credit for companies that did not take their bailouts, UNREAL!

Maybe some one might want to inform the clueless Harry Reid that Ford Motors took no government bail out money and they are doing better than any of the other ones that did. How do these people lie with such ease?


“We bailed out the auto industry … if it were up to them, Ford Motors would probably be gone … we decided that they needed help”

Reid’s full comment was as follows:

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “Isn’t it a good thing today in America that we have an automobile manufacturing sector? If it had been up to them [Republicans], General Motors would be gone. If it were up to them, Ford Motor Company would probably be gone. Chrysler definitely would be gone.”

Maybe some one does need to ask Redi, if he knows what time it is? The question that really needs to be really asked, is harry reid capable of telling the truth.

McConnell also noted “as a result of the health bill, small businesses, student loan centers, tanning salons, medical device manufacturers, hospitals, and major American employers have all either laid off employees or are trying to figure out how not to.”

Reid didn’t like that one, either, and responded to McConnell by claiming that “remember, any poll you see today, the majority of the American people support what we did here with health care.”

To which one can only wonder what planet Reid has been living on for the past six months. Wherever it is, they clearly don’t have cable news there because otherwise Reid would know about polls.

Polls the three taken so far in July, by Pew, CBS News and PPP, that found solid majorities either favoring repeal of Obamacare or opposed to it. And he would know Rasmussen’s surveys have found majorities favoring repeal for months on end.

Get this, here is the state run media’s spin on how Democrats saved Ford as they echo the Obama Administrations propaganda … “The Senate’s top Democrat argued Ford Motor Co. probably would have collapsed if the government hadn’t bailed out its top two competitors.” Um, wouldn’t Ford have been in a better position if they had no competitors? More brilliant logic from the folks who have no business sense.

      But Ford is increasing its Mexican work force in Mexico at 1/10th the cost of a US worker.–ford-hasten-shift-to-mexico-workers.html

      Does anyone remember Ross Perot’s “Great sucking sound” to Mexico. I do

      The ultimate goal is for a totally planned society (worldwide).
      A consequence of that process is it inevitably forces the ‘planners’
      to end up managing everyone’s life down to the smallest private

      Harry is hoping to be one of those ‘planners’. The Obowma
      administration is jockeying for consummate control of the
      economic factors, and therefore the freedoms factors of every
      living person. This collection of sophomoric fools is repeating
      exactly the historical moves that have consistently failed each
      and EVERY time they have been evoked.

      In a planned society this fool is among
      many who would control every conceivable
      human being down to the smallest detail.

      Have you any credible evidence that Harry Reid can think, if he can, that he ever has?

      “…. Harry Reid thinks Ford …..”

      Is this the same Harry Reid that will win his seat back in november even though the morons here said with 100% conviction that he wouldn’t?

      I agree Greg, #3 is nuts

      Harry Reid has told so many lies that he can’t remember accurate facts and furthermore, he doesn’t care if he can get reelected.

      Come on people of Nevada, get this creaton a permanent seat at his house in Searchlight.

      I guess Harry Reid is right after all. By screwing up GM and Chrysler, they gave the “playing field” to
      SM: I hardly think that was Obama’s intent.

      #6- Yoyo—Harry Reid sucks, no matter what his party affiliation is. He’s a liar, a thief, and as corrupt as any other Politian gone “bad.”

      We’ll see if he is “going to win his seat back” in November. Your prediction sucks, too and as #7 from Texas pointed out—do you think Reid really cares if he gets re-elected or not? He does not. Besides, all of the damage and havoc he helped contribute to (along with many others on both sides of the aisle, but primarily and more Dem’s involved–can you say FRANK, PELOSI for starters??!) the damage… has already been done long ago and at THEIR OWN HANDS! Not GWB’s, specifically.

      One of these days you will stop trying to nail everything on the REP party and look at the facts, even when GWB was in office and before those 8 years as well! However, since that is not about to happen any time soon with Libtards like you- this ends up being just another waste of keystrokes. You don’t completely understand politics in general, (even though you talk like you are an expert about everything) and you have no ability to look at both REP & DEM and see either:

      A. The big picture or

      B. the past, present and future history of American Politics, IMO.

      Have a great Summer anyway, Yoyo.

      Bigger Picture: Obviously, Ford knew it didn’t need a bailout with the labor & tax savings of hot footing it to Mexico. The rest is political earwax aka placating.

      Bosh & Lomb moving more too. Local residents lost their jobs to Mexico last week.

      Focus your anger for November.
