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?”
