United States Senate Leader Harry Reid;Republicans Again Fail To Support Our Troops
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ^ | Wednesday, September 19, 2007 | Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

Posted on 09/19/2007 7:10:19 PM PDT by mdittmar

Washington, D.C.Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid issued the following statement today after Republicans blocked the Webb-Hagel Amendment to enhance military readiness: 

“In blocking this bipartisan bill, Republicans have once again demonstrated that they are more committed to protecting the President than protecting our troops.  They have shown they will allow President Bush’s flawed war strategy to continue to strain our military rather than allow the availability of troops to dictate our operations.  And they believe it is in our national security interest to push our brave troops and their families beyond their breaking point.

“Democrats disagree.  We care deeply about rebuilding our badly overextended military and ensuring our troops have the time to properly train, prepare for and recover from battle.  And Democrats remain committed to repaying in some small measure the sacrifices our brave troops are making every day.”

The absolute Orwellian nature of this crap sends chills. No sense listening to the actual commanders, or the troops themselves, after all liberals know whats best for everyone, don’t they ?

Tar and Feathers.

Isn’t Reid the scrotum who met with the “anti-war” types and God knows who else under the cover of darkness this last weekend? Liar and fraud is right.

You have to be effing kidding me. Traitorous scumsucking libtard Reid, whose party leaders and who himself personally have slandered the US military to a degree that in WWII would have been actionable treason, dares to spew such Orwellian bile?

Wow, just wow. Is it no surprise that the pro-jihadist party’s Congress has an 11 percent approval rating? Apparently to this libtard and his advisors, it does, or else hw would not be spewing such delusional idiocy.

Remember the unwavering truth — liberals ALWAYS accuse their enemies of doing EXACTLY what they do.

Without fail.

Alway’s remember the book of hellspawn !

“Communist Rules for Revolution” Should read Democrat Playbook

A. Corrupt the young; get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial; destroy their ruggedness.
B. Get control of all means of publicity and thereby:
1. Get people’s minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books and plays and other trivialities.
2. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.
3. Destroy the people’s faith in their natural leaders by holding the latter up to contempt, ridicule, and obloguy.
4. Always preach true democracy but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.
5. By encouraging government extravagances, destroy its credit, produce fear of inflation with rising prices and generous discount.
6. Ferment unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders, and foster a lenient and soft attitude on the part of government toward such disorders.
7. By specious argument cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues, honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word and ruggedness.
8. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext with the view of confiscation of them and leaving the population helpless.

Why did we not counter-battery with a bill of our own to increase the size of the land forces by ~100,000, funded by tax cuts in a host of deserving areas (NEA, Dept of Education, FEMA etc...), described as a PARTIAL undoing of the Clinton force cuts that have forced our understrength Army and Marine Corps to have a less that 1:1 ratio of dwell:deploy time?

You know I guess the RAT POTUS candidates are going to have to answer whether they feel the hanging of Saddam was justified.

After all, if the war is a lie then Husseins execution was a murder.

We converse on a semi-regular basis. She does divulge a few gems like -

Of course [Hillary] will [release her medical records], just like all other Democratic presidential candidates have done for many years now.

Even if I worked at Disneyland, I couldn't make up stuff like that...

Yep. Rationalization and projection. Sadly, few Republicans take the time to condemn and explain such statements, leaving the uninformed free to willfully suspend disbelief, and accept such unrefuted statements at face value.

Did it occur to the Dems that a lot of troops don’t want to spend 50% of their active duty stateside? They’re professionals who want to advance their skills in a primo enivironment.

Harry Reid...just one more misguided loudmouth in a long string of

Egressive Democrats

Truman, 1949: "Let's get out of Korea."
McGovern, 1972: "Let's get out of Vietnam."
Reid, 2007: "Let's get out of Iraq."

Harry Reid’s next proposals to “protect” the troops will be to replace their rifles with broomsticks and humvees with tricycles so that they can’t hurt themselves.
