Skip to comments.Reid: 'I Never Said Iraq War Was Lost,' Angle is a "Liar"
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:"
You know, I could almost swear that he said the war is lost. Especially during the part where he said "this war is lost."

Reid is a pompous ass.
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.
“Schmuck”? “Pompous ass”? My uncle is those things. HR is something else entirely. :)
Harry Reid: Iraq War Is Lost
There’s video. There’s audio. It’s in the record.
Covering a lie with another lie is a sure sign of panicked desperation.
Why not post the entire blog entry here?
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.”
There has got to be a recording she can play over and over.
Harry Reid, you piece of crap, there is video and audio evidence that you said those very words “ the Iraq war is lost “ you deserve to lose the election you liar.
Yes, but lamely trying to divert attention with the “Angle lied” charge was a nice touch, no?!
It’s on tape. He’s a liar!
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.
everyone should send that you tube clip to harry reid and fill up his email with it over and over again.
This is great! This is the kind of thing people can understand. He’s an out-and-out liar.
This could really hurt him.
everyone should send that you tube clip to harry reid and fill up his email with it over and over again. Harry Reid is a damn liar.
??? 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.
Reid’s election is now lost.
Absolutely stupid move on his part.
I watched the entire debate on C-SPAN late last night. She fed Harry his lunch!
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.
Someone should post a link to it on his FB page. :)
“That is an impostor! I am now the new dingy less hairy reid!”
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...
Damn you! I have been fooled again!
(Maybe I wuz alsways da full.?)
I remember this too:
Response to Harry Reid from Dennis Miller:
A little background.
Off topic, just for laughs (keep this, you’ll need it), Obama’s response to Bush’s last SOTU
I want everyone (when they have time), to watch the last full SOTU from Bush and check out the reactions of the dems.
Script: “was he lying then?” [play video / audio of ‘war is lost”] “or is he lying now” [play video / audio of denial]? Call Harry Reid at 212-555-5555 and ask him how he can be trusted.”
Unbelieveable, just unbelievable.
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...
Of course, this is the same man who claims that paying income tax is voluntary . . . http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CBcQtwIwAQ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DR7mRSI8yWwg&ei=53O4TLnmLInHnAfb-62vDQ&usg=AFQjCNHDqoHEOC6I_NPs2ZIetNf0QzlEIQ&sig2=R71Enivwkuc3t6w-IFxTYA
They should have his voice and video keep repeating him saying â the war is lost â ..... 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 ? “ ....
Folks if you havent seen Dennis Millers commentary, It is freaking brilliant. Thank you for posting it Aliveritas.
Dirtbag Harry’s election is lost!
Pray for America
People who are this far gone should be summarily removed from office and tested for mental competence. If found sane, they should then be tried for felony FRAUD.
With apologies to Senator John Fn Kerry.
Anyone who votes for this schmuck is being paid to do so...there is just no other logical reason to support him.
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......
I am sure Rush will be putting these sound bites together for his show.
The war is lost
I never said the war is lost
the war is lost
I never said the war is lost
etc, etc, etc?
what about when he smiled in glee and announced “we killed the patriot act” meanwhile obama is dropping bombs via drone and trying to get acess to every communication that they accused Bush of already accessing.
