Is Harry Reid slipping in his old age?
In an incredibly strange tweet, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid discussed the supposed need for further immigration laws to help address the issue of illegal immigration.
In the tweet, however, Senator Reid claimed that Republicans that cannot trust President Obama to enforce immigration laws should trust President Cruz.
Sen. Reid tweeted:
Senator Harry Reid ✔ @SenatorReid
House Republicans must act on immigration. If they falsely believe Obama won't enforce it, then let's have the law take effect in 2017.

And then, for some reason, Sen. Reid tweeted the exact same tweet again.
Then, an hour later, Sen. Reid tweeted,
Senator Harry Reid ✔ @SenatorReid
If Republicans don't trust President Obama to enforce a new immigration law, let's give them a chance to implement it under President Cruz.

The natural inference is that Sen. Reid believes that Republicans would be more agreeable to passing a law that takes effect under the leadership of a President Ted Cruz, a likely 2016 presidential candidate and Tea Party favorite.
The tweets are certainly odd. First, as President Obama has disregarded a variety of laws of which he does not approve, passing immigration reform with any kind of crackdown on enforcement of anti-illegal immigration provisions will almost certainly be ignored.
Secondly, the tweets seem to imply a belief that not only will Ted Cruz win the primary, but will be elected president- a sharp contrast for Democrats who favor Hillary Clinton as the preferred successor to Obama.
There have been whispers amongst politicos that Harry Reid may be entering the early stages of dementia. Of course, this is purely speculation, but with a ceaseless vendetta against the Koch Brothers dominating nearly every statement made by the 74-year old senator, many have wondered if the aging Senator might be slipping.
Senator Reid has, on several occasions, belittled Ted Cruz on the Senate floor by referring to him as the very junior senator from Texas.

There is absolutely no way that Harry Reid is doing his own tweeting. He probably can’t even figure out his cell phone. It’s some stupid lackey that is suffering the dementia...probably because he is working for Evil Incarnate.
I would not trust Reid as far as I could spit him.
We do not call him Dingy Harry for nothing.
It’s a taunt and childish.
Cruz would be an awesome president.
We still need leadership in both houses.
(Actually the poster saying he doesn’t do his own tweets probably has the right of it.)
Nothing is worse than a geriatric old fart trying to be cute, especially when he is a sociopathic flim-flam man like Harry.
Regardless of what a new Amnesty law might say, does ANYONE really think that Obama will not start utilizing the parts of the law he likes from the day he signs it (if not sooner)?
> Nothing is worse than a geriatric old fart trying to be cute, especially when he is a sociopathic flim-flam man like Harry.
The man is just being facetious and spouting off after all the negativity from the Bundy Ranch fiasco. He knows his days are numbered.
Reid is trying to provoke people with his nonsense.
Kiss of death
