Skip to comments.United States Senate Leader Harry Reid;Republicans Again Fail To Support Our Troops
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 Bushs 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.
Kiss my azz. You’re a liar and a fraud.
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.
Mad Hatter World. Brought to you by the Mad Hatter himself.
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.
Even more stunning is that they don't even make any attempt to disguise it anymore!
Is there no end to the stupidity of this anemic jerk?
will someone from the military please frag this ahole...??
This clown’s BS has gotten old.
Harry POS Reid method-of-operation BUMP!
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
Remember the unwavering truth — liberals ALWAYS accuse their enemies of doing EXACTLY what they do.
Orwellian Speak from Lord Haw-Haw Harry Reid
GO TO HELL !
And take your Demoncrat coward cohorts with you .....
There will be no mourning in this house should someone decide to plug this blathering fool for his foul attitude and treasonous actions.
Keep going Harry, you’ll wind up like Saddam Hussein did, at the end of a rope.
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 peoples 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 peoples 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?
The last bigmouth that messed with Bush and the troops.
Where are the people of Nevada with a recall petition for this clown...traitors must not be allowed to serve the people
After all, if the war is a lie then Husseins execution was a murder.
I guess we’ll both be glad when Dingy Harry’s treasonous rhetoric come to an end after the next election - eh?
Methinks this reeks of triangulation. Or projection. Or some similar technique/pathology.
Dude, you pinging MurryMom? Do you want FR’s servers to crash and FReeper’s monitors getting the blue screen of death?
Hey Harry....STFU. You are a blithering idiot. You mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.
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.
Harry will get what is coming to him for being such a jerk! He is not for NV, nor anything else in America!
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.
Hey Harry 11% approval rating for you and W has 29 % . So STFU !
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.
