Harry Reid in 1993: "No Sane Country" Would Permit Birthright Citizenship
CSPAN 2 ^ | 1993-09-20 | Harry Reid

Posted on 08/18/2010 3:57:28 PM PDT by justlurking

In Harry's own words, on September 20, 1993 at 16:43 PM:

"If making it easy to be an illegal alien wasn't enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sane country would do that. Right? Guess again! If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with US citizenship."

I tried to transcribe the relevant portion of the video for the Youtube-impaired. There's a bit more, if you want to listen to the clip. It's 43 seconds long.

That needs to be put in an ad. Sounds an awful lot like John “I never change my views” McCain.

I guess he thought this video was too old for someone to have tape recorded and kept all of these years...I mean, who is that big of a C-SPAN geek?

Bad guess, Harry.

I looked at Sharron Angle's Facebook page, and it's already linked on the "wall" there. Hopefully, they'll put it in a television ad.

Harry Reid: We’re not a sane country, even in his opinion; we voluntarily elected Harry Reid to rule over us! Alongside Nancy Pleosi and Barack Hussein Obama II too. How sane is that?

If you go far enough back, I’m sure most of today’s ultra liberals would sound almost....sane. However, their party has since swung very far to the Left. So, their choice was: leave (and lose power) or drink of the Kool Aid. Obviously, they all drank the Kool Aid.

I guess he could always say he just “used to be” an extremist.

And you expect some socialist to be consistent or make sense because...? The the party comprises liars in accordance with their creator, the father of lies.
