Looney Liberal of the Week: Harry Reid


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- This week's award goes to Harry Reid for comments he made on Thursday, shortly following the disclosure that a major terrorist plot to blow up airplanes over the Atlantic ocean had been thwarted. Harry Reid is getting to be a regular in this segment. He appeared here in May and again in June. At this rate, Reid will make 'Looney Liberal of the Year' hands down.

In this current environment of bitter partisan politics, Reid decided to jump out in front of the cameras and make a statement (bashing Bush of course), just to deflect any credit the administration might receive for its role (however limited) in thwarting this terrorist plot. The Democrats are so desperate, that they cannot acknowledge even for 10 minutes that something good happened. They cannot rejoice in the knowledge that hundreds or perhaps thousands of American and British lives were saved. They cannot wait for even one day to try and find a cloudy lining behind the silver the moment.

Instead, Harry Reid immediately rushed out to make the following idiotic statement...

As a result of mismanagement and the wrong funding priorities, we are not as safe as we should be...The Iraq war has diverted our focus and more than $300 billion in resources from the war on terrorism and has created a rallying cry for international terrorists. This latest plot demonstrates the need for the Bush administration and the Congress to change course in Iraq and ensure that we are taking all the steps necessary to protect Americans at home and across the world.

Huh?? Did I miss something? I thought we DID in fact take "all the steps necessary to protect Americans at home and across the world". I mean... the terrorist plot WAS thwarted, wasn't it... or am I wrong? Would the terrorist plot have been thwarted "BETTER" if we were not in Iraq?

And who is Harry Reid kidding? If we never went into Iraq and we had $300 billion hanging around, do you think he would be spending it on counter-terrorism efforts? BWAHAHAHAHA! Yeah, right! And, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

Richard Barrett in his article at the link above makes a couple of humorous statements that I just couldn't ignore...

There are many wrong-headed points Mr. Reid makes in his statement that reeks of partisanship over patriotism. One is that the war in Iraq has created a rallying cry for international terrorists. Hello, McFly! International terrorists have had their sights set on America well before our second incursion into Iraq. From the suicide bombing of our Marines based in Southern Lebanon in 1983 to the 9/11 attacks, Muslim terrorists have targeted Americans for over two decades...

The party that wants to end the Patriot Act, the party that wants to kill the NSA surveillance tactics, and the party that wants to pull our troops out of Iraq, NOW, and who cries, "Uncle!" when the going gets tough, this is the party that will protect Americans here and the world over? Only the French have less fortitude than Democrats...

I can only imagine his response when the opposite action ensues-a successful terrorist strike. He'll say exactly the same thing!
"We weren't attacked beacuse we're misdirecting our efforts in fighting terror"! Sheesh! What a DUfus!

Now ,come on you guys, Harry and the Terrorists all know The United States have created all this hate the Terrorists feel . Well, the US and Israel . Everything in the Middle East was honey and cream , love and kisses before Israel came aloing and made the Muslims so Mad.
It would really be easier for the press to just call all the bad guys Harrorists. Do those Mullahs send Harry his script every day?

It is hard to beat "hello McFly".Harry needs to meet up with Karey and make a pact to commit "harry carey"

Reid may indeed be in serious running for LLL of the Year Award. But just think, there's still a mid-term election coming up--so MANY golden opportunities for the LLL's to shine! :>)

So...how many times has this clown been your "Looney Liberal of the Week" now?

By the statement: "change course in Iraq", maybe Reid means we should clean out Syria and Iran also...

This idiot,(Reid), gives new meaning to "Give 'em hell Harry!"

If you follow this moron and his left wingers, ---HELL is no doubt where you are bound for!

Oh, AND, with his emboldening the terrorists, it will be SOONER rather than LATER!

Beerme,
Did you notice the picture? He looks REALLY upset that a major terrorist attack was thwarted, don't you think? I can only imagine how gleeful he would be if people died!

Prettyold,
"Harrorists"... I LOVE it! Like somebody on the Hannity Radio Show said Friday, if Israel wasn't the excuse, then these Islamofascists would find something else. These guys want to take back all the lands they occupied in the 14th century, including Spain!

Maggie,
I know, wasn't that funny? When I saw "Hello, McFly?" I cracked up. I could just see Biff whackin' Reid's head. "Harey Karey" would be good.

Ms RW,
Another day... oh, no, not this guy again!

Radar,
Thanks! We should call him 'Harry Gump'... 'stupid is as stupid does'.

Marge,
I can't believe those LL's. They must fight to get in line for this award!

Camo,
TOO MANY! At least (5) that I can think of. And he's been quoted and highlighted in other non-LLoW articles! I guess when you're that dumb, it's just hard to keep reporters from noticing.

Kajun,
(In my best Bugs Bunny voice) "Mmmmmm... Could be! Going east, you make a left at Baghdad. Follow the DETOUR signs northwest until you "hit" Damascus (with a few 500 pound bombs). Head west through Syria 'til you get to Teheran (or was that Albequerque?)... Uh, What's up doc?"

RAM,
You got that right. These guys are bound and determined to turn Iraq over to the terrorists, pull the plug on the NSA wire-tapping program, pull the plug on the NSA money-tracking program, and watch an American city go up in a radioactive fireball. Maybe that's what they mean by "Give 'em HELL, Harry".
