Reid: 'I Never Said Iraq War Was Lost,' Angle is a "Liar"
Pundit Press ^ | 10/15/10 | Aurelius

Posted on 10/15/2010 8:16:00 AM PDT by therightliveswithus

You know Harry Reid, right? He's an incumbent Democratic Senator who is running for re-election in Nevada. He's facing Sharron Angle, a Republican challenger, who is currently in a dead heat with him. You see, I'm a little confused because there must be another Harry Reid who said the war in Iraq was lost, because this Harry Reid now says he never said that.

According to Reid's campaign site, Republicans and Sharron Angle have lied about his actual quote. On his website, they contain the "real" quote: "The war cannot be won militarily. It can only be won politically." According his campaign, he said that March 3, 2007.

What's more, Reid has taken to Facebook and Twitter to defend his comments, writing that what Ms. Angle says is a "LIE" (yes, he wrote in all capital letters) and that she was making things up.

Well, that's really weird considering that this video here shows Reid saying, quote, "The President knows, this war is lost:"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyDOAmJYFFA&feature=player_embedded

You know, I could almost swear that he said the war is lost. Especially during the part where he said "this war is lost."

Was he a liar before he was a schmuck or vice versa...Lying schmuck looks like it will stick, though. Especially since the audio evidence is clearly there.

You can bet just for saying that the members of the Talk Radio Mafia will have it aired to remind him.

There’s video. There’s audio. It’s in the record.

Covering a lie with another lie is a sure sign of panicked desperation.

Angle should run an ad with video of Reid saying "this war is lost."

Linda McMahon is running an ad with a video clip of Blumenthal saying: "When I served in Vietnam."

Reid is part of the Obama-Reid-Pelosi Marxist Troika that showed us doing the government healthcare takeover debate that they believe the American people are to shut up and abide by whatever their slave masters say. So, if he says he didn’t say it, we are to nod and say, “Yes, massa. Shaking here boss.”

"I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and - you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows - (know) this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday," said Reid, D-Nev.

Angle had better make a commercial where the loop those words over and over for the entire 30-second spot.

The old media used to be able to get away with crap like this but this is a new era where these lying bastards cannot hide from the truth.

FUHR!

??? Are they going by his whole statement or up to the point where he said the war was lost.. cut off mid sentence? Can’t win militarily, must be won politically? I hate this, when both sides use cut off statements, as he said she said. Its a lot different than saying we can’t win this war, so lets leave now. This can be touchy for swing voters, especially if the race is close. I wouldn’t vote for him regardless, he has more than 2 terms to his credit.

Prince Harry couldn’t even run that hotel. It’s hard to believe he’s been re-elected so many times and his lying schmuckiness wasn’t detected by the electorate much much sooner.

The sooner he’s a retired private citizen, the better off the country will be.

That is an insult to crap everywhere. Reid smells worse and at least when there is crap on the ground stuff grows. With 17% unemployment nothing is growing in Nevada.

I agree. The Ad should start out with her quoting him as saying “This War is Lost”. Then it should show his rebuttals saying she was lying and what they claim he said, that should be followed by the video of him saying “This War is lost”. That should end the Ad with Sharon saying she approved it.

Not really. The vast majority of voters are rather stupid and have short memories. Unless Mrs. Angle hits them upside the head repeatedly with Reid’s own recorded words, they’ll probably believe Reid.
And of course, there are Reid voters who don’t care if this is a lie...

No, no, no.... You don't understand Harry. It's a cultural thing and depends on the circumstance but as an means to an end... Here is the word for the day:
  •  e·quiv·o·cate Verb   /iˈkwivəˌkāt/
    Synonyms:
    • equivocated past participle;   equivocates 3rd person singular present;   equivocating present participle;   equivocated past tense
    • Use ambiguous language so as to conceal the truth or avoid committing oneself
      • “Not that we are aware of,” she equivocated

The operative point here is not that he lied, it is that he knows he can lie and the press will back him up. When socialism has a more secure grip on us, those videos will go down Winston’s memory hole, along with anyone who dares to bring it up...

They should have his voice and video keep repeating him saying “ the war is lost “ ..... while you have a voice over talking about Dirty Harry’s record and out right lying and his very own denying that he said that the war is lost, and at the end, the voice over says “ can we trust this man who even lies blatantly in your face ? “ ....

Hmmm sounds like great campaign ad for Angle if you ask me.

Make an ad with a soundbite showing Harry saying "Iraq War is Lost" followed by another soundbite of Dingy trying to cover his butt by lying about it; trying to claim he didn't say that when he obviously did; then end with a closing that says something like:

Harry Reid: Can you really trust ANYTHING he says??? This is Sharon Angle and I approve this message......
