I tweeted about this last night but it deserves mention on the blog, too. Hilarious:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is having a heck of a time trying to get re-elected, in part, he says, because people don’t want to know that he prevented a worldwide depression.
The Nevada Democrat, whose poll numbers are see-sawing against rival Republican Senate nominee Sharron Angle, told MSNBC’s Ed Schultz on Thursday night that voters in his state don’t feel reassured when Reid tells them of his global achievement because they’ve fallen so far down the economic food chain.
“We were at the top and we’ve fallen very hard. So people have been hurting, and I understand that, and it doesn’t give them comfort or solace for me to tell them, you know, but for me we’d be in a worldwide depression. They want to know what I’ve done for them, and that’s why it’s important for me, any chance I get, to say that my number one job is to create jobs,” Reid said, blasting Angle for saying it’s not the role of government to create jobs.
Here’s video of Reid’s remarks:
Folks, this is the Democrat party God-complex in a nutshell: They’re America’s – and the world’s – saviours and, doggone it, we couldn’t make it in life without their “help.” It’s THEIR job to “create jobs”, and to heck with the private sector. It’s all about what government can “do” for the people, rather than being about government doing the people a favor by getting off the backs of private citizens. President Obama, who will be campaigning for Reid tonight in Nevada, epitomized this offensive attitude on the campaign trail and has continued to do so while in office, and his Senate Majority Leader is just, well, following his “lead.”
This famous quote from Reagan comes to mind:
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’ “
Got that right! It was true back when he said it, and it is especially true now with this self-important, money/power-grabbing bunch.
Doug Powers quips:
If Harry Reid hadn’t agressively pursued his patriotic constitutional duty of spending as much money as possible, the world would be in a bread line as we speak.
Somehow acting as Barack Obama’s rubber stamp in adding as much new debt in less than two years — $3 trillion at last check — an amount that took from 1776 to 1990 to accumulate, saved the world.
Reid wants everybody to believe that he’s Bruce Willis in Armageddon, when in fact it’s now common knowledge that he’s been nothing but the asteroid for far too long. Nice try, Harry:
Yep. And this “asteroid” needs to be kicked out of DC and sent back to outer space, or Nevada, or wherever … anywhere but in the US Congress.
Come on, Nevada voters. Just Do It.
