(Mark Noonan) – Well, he did ask for it, didn’t he?
“You want credit Harry, we are happy to oblige: Nevada is in the midst of 16 straight months of increased unemployment, which has driven the state’s economy to the worst in the nation. Harry Reid wants credit. Fine, you got it, Harry. But the economy’s downturn coincides with your power. You weren’t in charge during the good years, but you did fight against the 2001-2003 tax cuts which boosted the economy. You are in charge now and now there’s 200,000 Nevadans out of work. You go tell them about the 20 years you weren’t in charge then blame someone else for the past 16 months and see how that turns out.’ ― Jerry Stacy, Sharron Angle Spokesman…”
Careful what you ask for, Harry; you might get it.
The plain fact of the matter is that Harry Reid has been high in American politics for decades now. These were decades when we built up massive amounts of debt; shipped our farms to Mexico, our mines to Chile and our factories to China; when Wall Street looters were allows to go hog wild; when government regulators squeezed the life out America’s small businesses; when absurd environmentalist concerns trumped the needs of human beings.
Was Harry Reid directly responsible for all that happened? No – but he didn’t fight for a moment against everything which has gone wrong.
Reid is part of the system – part of the Ruling Class. He has made himself a millionaire and set up his family in wealth and privilege, all on the taxpayer;s dime. It is, indeed, time to credit Harry with what he has done – and show him the door he has so well earned.
