Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry Reid (NV-D) to Senator Ted Cruz (TX-R): “My Friend from Texas is Like a Schoolyard Bully” … Democratic Strategist James Carville Called Cruz Talented & Fearless
Talk about the pot calling the kettle
black a bully …
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry said of Senator Ted Cruz, “My friend from Texas is like a schoolyard bully.” Wow, really? Obviously Harry Reid is having a case of selective amnesia because as Hot Air opines, Harry Reid has never thrown a political punch below the belt in the course of his career. NEVER EVER.
