In tonight's debate between Harry Reid and Sharron Angle, each was asked if they favor making English the official language of the U.S.
Angle said yes, Reid demurred and said English is already the official language.
The Angle campaign Tweeted a few minutes ago that Reid voted against making English the official language and provided a link to the Senate website for a vote on Senate amendment 4064 to S. 2611, Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
"To amend title 4 United States Code, to declare English as the national language of the United States and to promote the patriotic integration of prospective US citizens."
... Obama (D-IL), Nay
Pryor (D-AR), Yea
Reed (D-RI), Nay
Reid (D-NV), Nay
Roberts (R-KS), Yea...
The amendment passed 62 to 35.
Harry Reid is a total fraud. He’s lying his ass off desperately trying to save his corrupt seat.
English is not the official language. There is no official language although it is widely the English language that is used.
Why isn’t it the Official language....people like Reid voted NO.
The Senator from Ritz Carlton wouldn’t be able to keep his job if he told the truth.
And McCain also voted against making English the official language. Instead, the open borders types want English as the “national” language. 85% of Americans want English as the official language, but the politicians ignore the will of the American people.
I caught that too; he refused to support a Constitutional Amendment making English America’s official language. Pandering to the Mexican vote; maybe?
Sharron won the “Closing Argument” segment hands down. She kicked butt in her closing argument.
Sharron raised $14 Million in the 3rd quarter.
I see a new campaign ad about this before early voting starts on Saturday.
Boy Dennis really did the most to the point put down of anything I have ever heardor seen on video!
This @ss seems to always push for legislation he believes in.....and then votes NO on it. He’s frikkin’ insane.
Regardless, he was being his usual deceptive self.
If Reid is talking...he’s LYING!
If this topic already has its own thread I apologize but Harry Reid also lied about the timing of his “the war is lost” statement.
In the debate tonight Reid tried to claim that his statement came before the surge started. That’s a flat-out lie.
Reid made his statement on 4/19/2007. The change is policy was announced by Bush on 1/20/2007, and four of the five Army brigades that were to be committed to Iraq due to the surge had already been deployed by the time Reid made his statement.
The 5th and final brigade to be deployed on account of the surge came less than a month after Harry’s “the war is lost” statement.
Reid’s attempt now to say that he was only commenting on the status of the war prior to the surge and that after he made the statement then they started the surge is pure crap.
You must be wrong, Reid said tonight they were great friends I think...
oops, slight correction, that was 25 Senate votes against the resolution in support of General Petraeus, in the face of the vicious MoveOn.puke full-page attack ad smearing him!
Reid, Hillary, and 23 other snivelling ‘Rats
... and notice that Obama and Biden (as Senators in 2007) are on the record as...... NOT VOTING!!
MoveOn had just viciously attacked the US commanding general in Iraq as “General Betray Us” and both Obozo and Joe Bite-me chose to exempt themselves from the vote on the Senate resolution in response.
Boxer and Feingold voted “nay” along with Hilary, Reid, Kerry, et al
any Senator who voted nay and who is up for re-election right now should have this an albatross around their treasonous necks!
Every sane voter has known that for years.
Unfortunately, that excludes a critical percentage of voters in most (currently) blue states.
Reminds me of the classic success the U.S. socialist complex had getting rid of their original "Red" (accurate) designation.
Symbolism is critical in the Marxist universe.
