Well known quitter, traitor, crybaby, liar, surrenderer, and possible bed wetter Harry Reid says he wants to to compromise with Republicans to find ways to limit troop deployments in Iraq. In the past he has said things like:
Apparently now Reid acknowledged that his previous firm demand for a spring withdrawal deadline had become an obstacle for a small but growing number of Republicans who have said they want to end the war but have been unwilling to set a timeline. Who are these men? Who knows.
“I don’t think we have to think that our way is the only way,” Reid said of specific dates during an interview in his office here. “I’m not saying, ‘Republicans, do what we want to do.’ Just give me something that you think you would like to do, that accomplishes some or all of what I want to do.”
If that doesn’t sound like compromise than I don’t know what is! I think we all remember in late July when Reid slipped on his Superman Underoos and held a sleepover in the Senate to try and force a withdrawl measure But it was blocked by Republicans saying it was nothing more than a bad publicity stunt. Angrily Reid countered that “it was his party and if they didn’t want to come they should have just stayed home and that he was going to get his mommy because putting his underwear in the freezer and dipping his hand in a warm bowl of water was childish”.
In a typical puff piece about how sane Reid is in the Washington Compost it is stated that when he initially decided to first support the war, then decided to not support the war because of the following events:
One glimmer came when Frederick E. Pokorney Jr., a 31-year-old Marine from Tonopah, died on March 23, 2003; he was the first Nevada resident to be killed in Iraq. Reid called Wade Lieseke, the man Pokorney considered his father, to offer condolences. When Lieseke told him, “This war is worthless,” he was taken aback. “I’m not sure that’s right,” he thought to himself. But with every new call, Reid later said, “I reflected back on that.”
Reid also recalled his first visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center. “I say to this young man — he’s missing part of one leg and the other one’s up in a sling, and I try to be nice — ‘I know we need to go get you more armor.’ ” The young man responded: “We don’t need more armor. We need to get out of there.” That comment lingered, too.
This March, the senator returned to Walter Reed, where he met a young Ohio man recovering from a bomb attack that had “vaporized” his friend. A 22-year Army veteran told Reid she had lost her memory because she’d been knocked unconscious so many times. Reid left the hospital and headed to the Senate floor, where he delivered a passionate speech in favor of Webb’s bid for troop-deployment limits.
I really want to know who these people are and we should be fact checking these stories right now. I want to know who these people are and see whether or not they remember saying this or is this just another Beauchamp bit. Harry Reid is a scumbag and there is only one thing to do about it. Put more videos like this one out there for people to see. This is from The Global Defense Group.
Oh one more thing Dennis Miller Goes all Kung-Fu on his punk a$$…
