Harry Reid: Liar

YouTube Preview Image YouTube Preview Image

Washington is a town filled with liars, but even with all of that competition Senator Harry Reid (D.NV.) can be considered to be in a class all of his own when it comes to lies.  He lies constantly and with brazen effrontery because he realizes that with almost all of the mainstream media serving as unpaid press agents for the Democrat party, the chances of him being damaged by his mendacity will be remote.  Time, past time, to strip of his post as Senate Majority Leader by electing a GOP controlled Senate in the fall.

  • Good luck with that. And with the Pope’s strong stance against unfettered capitalism, you no longer have the Church in your Koch shilling back pocket.

  • Are you just being a troll Tom M. or are you really that dim?

  • “Time, past time, to strip him of his post as Senate Majority Leader by electing a GOP controlled Senate in the fall.”

    God help us with this one. We all know how precious little differences there are between Democrates and many Republicrates! I really do not sense a sufficient increase in the intelligence or the integrity of voters to have much hope for this republic. We are way down that slippery slope…..

  • Donald,

    What did I say that makes you think I’m dim? You really don’t believe the influence of Pope Francis’ anti-capitalism is going to make a difference in this years elections?

  • What did I say that makes you think I’m dim?
    ——————–
    I’m gonna take a stab that has to do with that fact that a) you pretty much misrepresented, or at least exaggerated what the Pope had to say, b) grossly overestimate how much his words will impact an American electorate, and c) reveal that you are fairly unacquainted with polling data and a political map that signal that Democratic retention of Senate control is much less than a 50/50 proposition.

    I would also suggest that Koch brothers line further suggests that you are a fairly unoriginal thinker incapable of doing anything but parroting talking points you’ve heard from other media sources.

  • “Pope Francis’ anti-capitalism is ………….”

    Pope Francis is NOT anti-capitalist. He simply pointed out – as many other popes have done – that we should avoid the excesses that capitalism can produce.
    On the other hand however, along with the other eight popes who have preceded him, his condemnation and rejection of Socialism is very severe.

  • Paul,

    Those are all reasonable points but in response I would say that I think you underestimate the power of the Pope’s words and actions. Remember, Catholics helped elect President Obama even with nearly the entire episcopate lined up against him in their “fortnight for freedom” mania. He’ll make a difference in places like Louisiana.

    As far as the Koch brothers, they themselves admit to pouring huge amounts of money in to these 2014 races. So far to little very effect as even someone like Kay Hagan is essentially tied with Tillis in North Carolina.

    Anyway, it’s going to be a very close election and I think the Pope could provide just enough oomph to keep Harry Reid as the majority leader.

  • “Tom M.”– the trolling and misdirection is strong in this one…

    Back on topic, I’m curious how Senator Reid could ever justify his claims. He
    seems to think that just because horror stories have been publicized in anti-
    obamacare commercials that have been sponsored by ‘a billionaire’ (Oooooo!,
    cue scary music!), that they cannot be true. Just take his word for it.

    Who are we going to believe– Senator Reid, or our lying eyes?

  • “What did I say that makes you think I’m dim? You really don’t believe the influence of Pope Francis’ anti-capitalism is going to make a difference in this years elections?”

    1. You mentioned the Koch brothers. That is a substitute for thought on the left and is hilarious since the left depends to a far greater extent than conservatives on large cash donations from very rich individuals.

    2. You mentioned Pope Francis and I think he will have zip influence on these elections.

    3. Your comment was non-responsive to the post.

  • Don,

    Pope Francis like all his predecessors have always condemned both socialism and capitalism. But, aside from the Senator from Vermont, who is a socialist? Certainly not our Wall St. loving president. The Holy Ghost chose Pope Francis precisely because the dangers we face today are from the advocates of unfettered capitalism. Those who would treat labor as a commodity to be bought and sold no different than a car or house.

  • He’ll make a difference in places like Louisiana.

    Yes, I’m sure Mary Landrieu’s bacon is going to be saved because of some comments the Pope made about economics. Your political analysis here rivals that of Michael Barone.

    And? They are hardly the only people who contribute financially to political races. In fact, the amount of money they contribute is dwarfed by other individuals and organizations.

    The Holy Ghost chose Pope Francis

    And now we throw some bad theology into the mix. How many times must it be repeated that the Holy Spirit does not choose the Pope? The Holy Spirit guides the Cardinal electors.

    because the dangers we face today are from the advocates of unfettered capitalism.

    Yes – unfettered capitalism, which is practiced pretty much nowhere on planet Earth – is the single greatest threat humanity faces.

  • I have probably worn out the hospitality of the host so I won’t stick around but I stand by my comments and don’t think them trollish.

    Heck, I’m probably more conservative then most people on the right. I mean which right wing politician wants to do anything about this from Pope Pius XI:

    “It is an intolerable abuse, and to be abolished at all cost, for mothers on account of the father’s low wage to be forced to engage in gainful occupations outside the home to the neglect of their proper cares and duties, especially the training of children.” – QUADRAGESIMO ANNO

  • Heck, I’m probably more conservative then most people on the right.

    And hopelessly confused.

  • Back to the seemingly pathological lying of Harry Reid and others who have become so Partisan- such Party men- that they have lost balance in their thinking. It seems their goals or ends justify any means. The conscience is maybe not dead, but totally distorted

  • Perhaps many professional lefties are so accustomed to moral relativism they cannot tell the difference between plain truth and lying fiction. The first lie told is to oneself.

  • William Walsh’s comment about leftist politicians not being able to tell the difference between the plain truth and lying fiction reminded me of a similar phrase that Bill Wilson wrote concerning alcoholics in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. I am certain this is not a coincidence given the alcoholic addiction that leftist politicians have to the public treasury and the votes of the masses. Sadly too many RINOs by the same addiction make a similar stain on what could otherwise be authentic conservativism. :-(

  • Ah ha! I finally found the phrase on page xxvi of “The Doctor’s Opinion” in the Big Book at http://www.whytehouse.com/big_book_search/.

    “The sensation is so elusive that, while they [i.e., alcoholics] admit it [i.e., alcohol] is injurious, they cannot after a time differentiate the true from the false.”

    Yes, I cheated because my Big Book is still buried in a box somewhere after having moved apartments.

  • The gem within is: “The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken”. —– Samuel Johnson – It wonderfully describes our dilemma. Our political and economic situation is in an abnormal condition due to the unrestrained influence of the political left. They have managed to mainstream radical falsehoods. Those in political control of the country are immovably mired in their own ordure. They’ve convinced the masses that the world owes them a living but they can’t provide it. In the town square, the guillotine awaits.

  • William P Walsh again hits the nail on its proverbial head:

    “The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken”. —– Samuel Johnson

    Only St. Paul had a better description of addiction:

    15 I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. 16 Now if I do what I do not want, I agree that the law is good. 17 So then it is no longer I that do it, but sin which dwells within me. 18 For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do. 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I that do it, but sin which dwells within me.

    Romans 7:15-20

  • Thank you – Paul but take care not to feed my ever lurking vanity. Saint Paul speaks for each and all of us. He describes the big sins we may have by grace left behind and the little sins so small we cannot see them. It is comforting to know that it’s not our efforts that draw us out but Christ’s sacrifice.

  • Harry Reid is but a symptom of Potomac Fever. Immune to term limits, detested by many, likely even in his own party, Reid’s machine has locked up Nevada by owning Las Vegas casino worker unions.

    The media has been in the Democrat back pocket since FDR, for the most part, and it has only grown worse. Reid lies whenever he opens his mouth – not a unique trait among politicians, but he has raised the bar for being obnoxious.

    Off to Mass. Today is Quinquegesima Sunday (in the old calendar, a time for preparation for Lent, Bugnini didn’t like it). Let us all prepare for Lent, which begins tomorrow for many Eastern Catholics.
