Skip to comments.Obama is like a Chilean miner, Harry Reid says
Posted on 10/18/2010 6:27:56 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
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.
He’s like a Chilean miner? You mean he has a wife AND a mistress??
that analogy is absolutely disgusting....and Dingy Harry has just proven he really is senile and completely out of touch with reality! I hate libs!!!!
Yep. He's giving America the shaft.
Obama is in hole so deep that he couldn't see the outside world! He's like a blind person politically. He's like someone trapped in a mine without any light. He doesn't know what to do and he's trapped by his Leftist agenda.
*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*
Possibly....but then he decided to dig straight DOWN with his ludicrous economy destroying Obamacare, “stimulus” nonsense, and promoting the scam-based Cap n’ Trade tax.
*...Reid said at an “Early Vote GOTV” event.*
Is GOTV only for Democrats? I've not heard of it. If it is only for Democrats then I can only assume that it has that name because they know that they will have to GO in November!
“Obama is like a Chilean miner, Harry Reid says”
Oh...he has a mistress on the side too? What’s his name?
This delusional nut should be locked up for the safety of the country.
When the miners were trapped Pinera asked the world for their expertise to save the miners.
When BP rig blew up Obama sent a team of lawyers to demand money from BP and then he went back to golfing and vacationing.
The dems that are about to get kicked out of office would like to see the kenyan in a hole similar to the one Saddam Hussein hid in.
If you want to see what the fool Obama is about read about his boss..and for that matter all the democrats boss including Harry Reid..
""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."
Keep talking Harry!!! This statement itself will help Sharon immensely. You think we are all that DUMB???
Actually there are some similarities. The late choir director, Reggie Love, etc. And then 21:!!!
Let’s put this to a test. 0bama can go down into a mine a couple of thousand feet and then cause a cave in to block the exit. Then with Biden and Hillary in charge of the rescue effort we can see how it goes.
In 2008 the unemployment figure was 7.2%, remind me please what is it today? Which direction is Obummer digging?
If Reid gets re-elected, Nevaduh will pass Floriduh as the most stupid State.
Well, he has dug himself a hole so deep he can’t get himself out of it, and his world is caving in around him.
Surely most Nevada voters will see through this blatant opportunism
Okay, why not: Obama’s like a Chilean miner. He’s lost in the dark, completely helpless, and only a big push by capitalist enterprise can possibly save him.
Let me get this straight.
When Obama says we can’t give the keys back to the Repubs. He’s obviously talking about Congress.
Yet when Dems were in control of Congress (07-08). It was Bush who had the keys.
I’m confused. /s
He does sound increasingly senile, doesn’t he? You wonder where his advisers are, though. This is such a weird and off putting comparison, you’d think somebody would have advised Reid against making it.
If it was a Freudian analogy, it does say a lot about how Harry sees Barry. The miners’ chief characteristic was helplessness. They had to depend one-hundred percent on the people at the surface for food and eventual rescue. Maybe Harry has realized Obama is helpless and in over his head. It’s a thought, anyway.
Totally agree. Republicans should stay quiet for the next 2 weeks and let the libbies keep talking. Libbies are so desperate they are saying anything and are their own worse enemy. It is so great watching them squirm.
Thats good to point out. And enough of this blaming Bush crap from the left. They have had 2 years to fix this crap and have made it worse. Its their fault the economy is such bad shape.
I’d put an outhouse on top of that hole.
Obviously, Dirty Harry confused The One with Slick Willie.
How long before that photo is called “racist”?
Completely in the dark?
Whatever marble Reid had left has just been declared missing.
