Senator Harry Reid has said a lot of things over the years, but his recent remarks on cut, cap, and balance bill may be the most ridiculous of all time.
“I think this piece of legislation is as weak as anything that's come on the floor,” Reid said. “I'm not going to waste time on this piece of legislation which I think is anathema to our country. We're going to have a vote tomorrow. I'm not going to wait until Saturday. We're going to have a vote tomorrow, and I feel confident that this legislation will be exposed one way or the other. The American people should understand this is a bad piece of legislation. Perhaps some of the worst legislation in the history of this country.”
So a bill that attempts to balance our budget is the worst piece of legislation in our nation’s history? In 235 years, America has never seen anything worse than this bill? Is he serious?
This statement seems remarkably irrational, even for Harry Reid. On radio this morning, Stu chose to identify several pieces of legislation that would certainly top cut, cap, and balance on a ranking of the “worst legislation.”
“You have to think Harry Reid who is Mormon who knows there's laws that made it legal to kill Mormons in Missouri until 1970s,” Stu pointed out. “How about the Indian removal act that allowed the country to ship out Indians, or the fugitive slave act from the 1850s that allowed slave catchers.”
“How about the espionage act of 1917 under president Woodrow Wilson,” he continued.
Stu obviously must not understand the economic complexities that caused Reid to be so distraught over the cut, cap, and balance legislation.
“Listen. Listen. Stu. Stu. Balancing the budget you misunderstand. Round the up the Japanese. Round up the Germans. Round up anyone that speaks ill of the president. Kick the Indians off of their land,” Glenn joked.
Ultimately, Glenn summed it up best – when it comes to Senator Reid, there is no rationale.
“This man is so incredibly dishonest I can't begin to describe,” Glenn said. “You have to be -- you have to be a gold medalist in gymnastics mental gymnastics to be able to understand his perspective and claim to be honest. “
