Old Harry “Poopy Pants” Reid is just mad as all tarnation at John McCain for basically correctly quoting him in a radio ad running in South Carolina. He apparently can’t grasp the fact that what he said was disgusting and shows his lack of ability to grasp the basics of being the people’s represative when he said, and I quote, “The War IS Lost” Video of him saying it is below.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is not at all pleased with a new radio ad being run by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in South Carolina.
According to CNN, McCain’s new ad blasts Reid for saying the “war is lost” earlier in the year. McCain has been one of President Bush’s biggest backers on his Iraq war policy.
“‘Seven months ago, Democrat majority leader Harry Reid said the war in Iraq was lost,” the ad begins. “Well, he was wrong,'” CNN reported.
CNN also noted that “Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, McCain’s most prominent booster in the state, speaks for the majority of the spot, saying ‘the troop surge is working’ and that ‘we need a president prepared to win.'”
Reid is very unhappy with McCain new radio ad, and a Reid aide fired right back at the Arizona Republican tonight.
“While I understand that Senator McCain is fighting to revive his failed presidential campaign, his remarks are at odds with the vast majority of the American people, who are demanding a responsible end to this war,” said Jim Manley, Reid’s spokesman. “These kinds of attacks — and his consistent support of a failed strategy that has kept our troops mired in an endless civil war in another country — will only undermine Senator McCain’s credibility with voters.”
Manley added: “Democrats have given the troops a pay raise, increased funding for veterans and most importantly have fought to give our soldiers what they deserve — a strategy for success. We will continue to oppose Bush Republicans like Senator McCain who are committed to a failed war strategy and to standing in the way of critical needs at home.”
