Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has compared President Barack Obama to a trapped Chilean miner.
In a speech to supporters in Las Vegas on Sunday night, Reid said that when Obama replaced George W. Bush in the White House he found himself in a "hole so deep that he couldn't see the outside world.
"It was like the Chilean miners, but he, being the man he is, rolled up his sleeves and said 'I am going to get us out of this hole,'" Reid said at an "Early Vote GOTV" event.
At a Democratic rally in Boston on Saturday, Obama acknowledged Democrats in general were in a hole, heading up to the mid-term elections.

Wow...these people are disgusting and need to be removed from office.
Uh, the miners didn’t get themselves out of the hole. They were brave and patient, but all they did was wait for the drill bit.
If I were in Nevada, I’d tell Harry exactly what type of “hole” both he and Obama are.
At that point the Democrats had controlled Congress for two years.
He dug his own hole and now he can’t get out of it?.................
Well then would someone tell this idiot to stop digging in the wrong direction?
Except that the Chilean miners, unlike Obama, were not deluded into believing that they could dig out.
Um, Harry you moron, it was American capitalism and the technology built by capitalist businesses that got those miners out. I’m not taking anything away from them for their bravery, but they didn’t dig themselves out. It’s a stupid analogy, but certainly not surprising coming from you.
Reid is an @$$hole. As such, he knows holes.
There, fixed it...
Someone needs to tell Obama that when he’s in a deep hole like that, he needs to stop digging.
What an idiot and a disgusting fraud. It is all the more revolting to see Reid/Obama attempting to use the mine rescue, since Obama was the one world leader who did not call the Chilean president to congratulate Chile on the success.
I would agree. Obama is in the dark, completely removed from what the everyday American needs or wants.
Well, he's right. I doubt that any of the miners were born in the US, either.
He doesn’t believe in God...
He doesn’t believe in initiative...
He doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism (I bet those miners do after that PA company came to their rescue)...
He doesn’t love his country...
Where do the comparisons (rather contrasts) end?
Doea arrogance know no bounds? We need to get rid of these people.
