Evil? Senile? Both? Another day, another lie from Senator Harry Reid

Pat has already made a compelling argument for why Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is, in fact, “the worst living human being on the planet.” And he added further fuel to that fire this week when he blatantly lied on the Senate floor. At this point, one can’t help but wonder: Is Sen. Reid evil, senile, or both?

The America Rising PAC put together a telling video that compares comments Sen. Reid made on February 26, 2014 to remarks he made on March 26, 2014. In the timespan of exactly one month, Sen. Reid went from blaming all negative Obamacare testimonies on the evil Koch brothers to denying he ever said such a thing. The reversal is actually pretty spooky:

“Something is either wrong with him or, as I’ve maintained, he’s the worst living human being on the planet,” Pat said exasperatedly. “Something is radically wrong with him. If that’s the case, get him out of office. Seriously. Get him out of office. Something is wrong with him.”

Pat and Stu likened Sen. Reid’s penchant for telling boldfaced lies to that of his former Democratic colleague, President Bill Clinton. President Clinton sat in front of a camera and emphatically denied having any “sexual relations with that woman,” and yet we quickly learned that was 100% false.

CLINTON: I want to you listen to me. I’m gonna say this again. I did not have sexual relations with that woman. Ms. Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time. Never. These allegations are false. And I need to go back to work for the American people.

“He’s so good,” Stu said of Clinton. “I listen to that now and believe him.”

“The way he puts it at the beginning, it’s so emphatic,” Pat added. “I mean how definitive a statement and how emphatically he says it are just unbelievable when you know now, in retrospect, it was an absolute flat-out lie.”

When you consider the frequency with which politician spew outright lies, it’s any wonder how they maintain an ounce of credibility.

“And this is what they do over and over and over and over,” Pat concluded. “And people seem to buy it every day – every single day. I don’t know how it happens. How do you have one ounce of credibility with anyone?”

    Reid is the quintessential politician, able to change a speech in mid-sentence to reflect that we are no longer at war with Eurasia. We are now at war with Eastasia. But more than that, we have always been at war with Eastasia, never Eurasia. Pass me a bottle of Victory gin, Harry, so I can drink you off my mind.

    The real question is why nobody actually comes up and calls him out on this, with these examples. I don’t expect the LSM to get the job done, but it would be great if one of our more stalwart Republican senators would attempt to do so.

      One of these days I predict that John McCain will give Harry a wet kiss on the floor of the Senate just in the name of bi-partisanship.

    he has no credibility with anyone I know, and man does he smell worse than the tourists he despises so much

  • landofaahs

    Just call it “Democrat” and that will suffice. Put a Hitler’s mustache on Harry’s mug and see if it has any resemblance.

    Why does Reid keep saying Mister President is he praying to Obama or is he seeing things?

    • Anonymous

      He’s speaking to the president pro-tem of the senate.

        I know I was trying to make a joke but it looks like it backfired in my face.

          Don’t worry, I understood it :)

    And liberals trust these people. What a bunch of lemmings.

    Harry Reidiot who?

  • Anonymous

    How can he run for office again and again with a straight face? Better yet, all of Nevada can’t be this stupid

    • Cuffs

      Harry got re-elected by fraud. His union buddies made damn sure he kept his seat. Barry depends on him.

    How about “incalculably stupid?”

    Someone needs to call the rubber bus and have this demented crook taken away.

    A good obamatron, say this about that, wind me up and let him go.

    This guy is a doddering old fool. His behavior is troubling. Remember when he tried to steal an Obama signing pen? The best, clear sounding recording of it is actually here:


    You can actually hear Chuck Schumer say to him like you would to a child, “N-n-n-no, Harry? Harry? Harry?”

    Overhearing, Obama says to him “Harry, are you stealing the pens?” Reid, embarrassed, fiddled with the pen for a few seconds while Obama came up with “I can get you one, man,” as he pulls one from his jacket pocket. He handled Reid like you would see someone handle a senile elder – humoring him.

    This guy does not belong in the position of Senate Majority Leader.

    If he were the “worst living human being on the planet ” and he just screwed up with campaign finance laws, what would he do? He would try to find an out – an excuse – so that he wouldn’t have to do jail time. For example, he might feign memory lapses or old age dementia. That would be a horrendously sick thing to do, but when you’re the “worst living human being on the planet “it’s all in a days work.

    Reid is the typical Incumbent Democrat who couldn’t find the coatroom without his Lobbyist handlers.

  • Krimsen King

    Yes, those are the only possibilities, evil, stupid or senile. Couldn’t be a grain of truth to anything he says. So these Koch brothers… they haven’t invested millions in massive anti-Obama, anti-healthcare ads and lobbyists? No? And really, nobody’s fabricated or exaggerated their ‘woes’ with obamacare because they don’t like Obama? Really? Odd limits for your skepticism, don’t you think?

      Soros LIb Troll Rule #12: Blame the Koch brothers.

      • Krimsen King

        who’s blaming? I’m asking. Is that not true?
