Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid Says … House ‘Being Operated With A Dictatorship Of The Speaker’
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black … What ever happened to the “civility” that Obama had called for? Where is his leadership to tell those in his in party to shut their mouths, as they are helping nothing.
It would appear that Sen. Reid (D-NV) could care less about civility and trying to offer an olive branch in order to come to a deal with House Speaker Boehner. Harry Reid stated while speaking on the floor of the US Senate that the House was “being operated with a dictatorship of the speaker.” How juvenile could one be? How could anyone think that such words are helpful an would be considered doing the work of the American people? Just how many bills have the Senate passed to deal with the fiscal cliff?
With a Dec. 31 deadline for an agreement to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff” rapidly approaching, leaders in each party demanded the other side take the initiative. The new flare-up happened despite a round of calls that President Barack Obama made to congressional leaders by phone Wednesday night from Hawaii before he boarded Air Force One to head home from vacation.
The market was glum, with stocks falling for the fourth day in a row amid the stalled negotiations and a report that consumer confidence had plunged to its lowest level since August.
Obama’s plane landed in late morning at a suburban Maryland Air Force base, not long after Majority Leader Harry Reid took to the Senate floor to chastise House Republicans who last week opposed Speaker John Boehner’s efforts to pass a narrowly crafted bill. Boehner’s “Plan B” would have raised tax rates only on the very wealthiest Americans. But the opposition within his own party caucus forced the Ohio Republican to cancel a vote on the bill.
Reid charged Thursday that the House was “being operated with a dictatorship of the speaker.”
In a response to Reid’s childish remarks, Speaker Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said: “Harry Reid should talk less and legislate more if he wants to avert the fiscal cliff. The House has already passed legislation to do so.”
I really have to question the wisdom of the American voters who reelected the status quo and those in Nevada who reelected Reid in 2010. The leadership in both parties needs to be purged and we need to start from scratch. Of course that should have meant Obama should have been thrown out on his ears as well.
Thank you Nevada for reelecting Harry Reid, all that is wrong with Washington, DC politics … NOT!You had an opportunity to rid this country of Harry Reid, instead you chose the status quo. Well Nevada, here is more of the same …
Harry Reid, simply shameful
Because on-line gambling creates jobs and helps families with their taxes … Unreal what Democrats will do instead of helping “We the People”.
From the man who brought you the smoke-filled, back room deals like the Corn Husker kickback and the Louisiana Purchase II during the passage of Obamacare in the Senate comes Harry Reid’s attempt to attach on-line Internet poker to the current Tax bill. At one time Reid was against on-line poker, that was before he needed casinos support in the last election. Now it appears to be pay back time to the gambling community.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is trying to use the tax cut package President Barack Obama brokered with Republicans to legalize online poker, POLITICO has learned — a move that could further complicate the deal Obama announced Monday.
Already, the online poker proposal has exposed the Nevada Democrat to charges of flip-flopping on a controversial issue, as well as using his Senate leadership position to repay big casino interests that helped him win reelection in a hard-fought campaign against Republican Sharron Angle last month.
Two days to go before the 2010 midterm elections and Republican US Senate candidate Sharron Angle as her closing argument for the people of Nevada. It’s your turn Nevada to go to the election polls and make a difference.
Angle’s powerful closing argument against Harry Reid and for the people … “They promised you change, but they delivered unprecedented spending, overwhelming debt, heartbreaking job loss, astounding foreclosures, skyrocketing bankruptcies … NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!”

Sharron Angle Sends Joy Behar Flowers and Thanks Her for the 150,000 online Donations … Response, Behar Calls her a Bi@ch Again
Oh those kind, tolerant and classy liberals …
Keep talking Behar … Angle’s lead is growing in the polls
“Joy, Raised $150,000 online yesterday. Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Sharron Angle”
Obviously Sharron Angle has a sense of humor, too bad that the so-called comedian Joy Behar does not. Having been bested, she was not able to laugh it off and instead spewed more hate as she called her a bitch again. The exact comment was … “Those flowers were picked by ILLEGALS and they aren’t VOTING for you, B*tch! VIDEO“ Just curious, why is Barbra Walters and the producers of The “liberal” View allowing this to continue? Have the no shame? Is this what Barbara Walters wants to have her show reduced to … the Jerry Springer Show? Does ABC want to become MSLSD MSNBC?
Joy Behar wasn’t amused and pointed out that those flowers were probably picked by illegal immigrants, which is why Behar attacked Sharron Angle to begin with. She doesn’t approve of the ads being used in Nevada, seeing them as racist and putting immigrants down.
Behar still referred to Angle as a “bitch.”
From The Daily Caller … Woman’s Groups Outraged by Behar’s comments.
The fantastic irony of the venomous Joy Behar comments is that all she managed to do was make herself look silly and fill the coffers of Sharron Angle with donations. How great was this by the Angle camp to turn the tables on Behar and continue to make her look like a partisan hack. Who finds it comical, if you will, that Angle is one upping Behar on the zingers?
By the way Barbara Walters, you are a disgrace if you think someone calling another a “bitch” is a point of view. A brilliant media career reduced this accepting the rantings of the “Moonbat” LEFT.
The Independent Vote Paves the Way for Victory for the GOP in Nevada, Kentucky, Colorado & Pennsylvania
Obama and the democrats have lost the Independent vote …
Less than a week before the 2010 midterm elections and the independent vote is making it possible for Republican US Senate wins in Nevada, Kentucky, Colorado and Pennsylvania. It was Barack Obama who carried independents in 2008; however, that was then, this is now. Independents have all but abandoned the Democrats in 2010 as the oppose the Reid, Pelosi, Obama agenda.
In a recent TIME/CNN/Opinion Research poll, Republican and Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle leads Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid 49% to 45%. No wonder the Reid camp is gaming the system with buying votes. Also, Tea Party backed GOP candidate Rand Paul is riding the wave of independent support with a 50% – 43% lead over Democrat Jack Conway in Kentucky. Rand Paul is destroying Conway by 37 points, 63% to 26%, among independents. In the “keystone” state of Pennsylvania Republican Pat Toomey leads Democratic Representative Joe Sestak 49% – 45% and in Colorado, Republican Senate nominee Ken Buck is clinging to a narrow advantage over Senator Michael Bennet.
The opinion seems to be that Republicans may not win control of the Senate asa +10 pickup is almsot next to impossible; however, many are gleeful that Harry Reid will be put out to pasture once and for all. Democrats can than their lucky stars that all Senate seats are not up for reelection like the House as they would find themselves on November 3, 2010 with a GOP controlled veto proof majority.
However, come 2010 midterm election eve … no one really knows what the size of the GOP victory will be. One thing is for certain, there will be no way that Democrats will be able to spin it as any sort of victory.
