Words fail me. Reid is stuck on stupid and flat-out delusional to boot.

Obama is like the Chilean Miners? He never did an honest day’s work in his life.

Nice analogy, but in his case there’s no one above drilling down toward him.

Trapped in a hole and waiting for forces he couldn’t create and doesn’t understand to rescue him.

If Hussein was one of those miners they’d still be headed for hte center of the earth:

Hussein said he was confident Americans would “dig ourselves out of this hole”.

At best Zero’s loyalty is like that of the miner with a wife and mistress. He’s screwing someone all the time.

He actually insulted the miners. These guys are absolutely desperate. I heard a tape of president Erkel over the weekend and did not know it was him until the newsman identified him after the clip. The stress is showing.

Maybe because he is “in over his head”. But no one is trying to dig him out of the mess he’s making.

It’s a good analogy. That whole rescue operation that people saw on TV was a hoax. The Chilean miners actually rescued themselves by raising everyone’s taxes.

Yup, he reduced taxes, lowered the deficit, reduced unemployment, and made every terrorist in the world love us.

Actually we should be thanking him.

I want what Harry is drinking.

“Trapped in a hole and waiting for forces he couldn’t create and doesn’t understand to rescue him.”

This couldn’t have been said more accurately or concisely (though “hole of his own making” also would have been a fair way to characterize his plight).

It’s stunning to think Reid thought his analogy somehow would make Americans think more highly of this incompetent president.

So, he’s trapped and can’t get out of the situation on his own? He needs private businesses to put aside their self-interest to rescue him? He’s got both a wife and mistress (mister?) waiting for him on the surface?

Obama is a post turtle.

Two arms. Check. Two legs. Check. Head with mouth, nose, etc. Check.

Yep. Obama is a lot like the Chilean miners.

Hard worker. No. Positive outlook in the face of a dismal future. No. Praising God after rescue. No.

Hmm. Obama is NOTHING like the Chilean miners.

As usual, Harry Reid gets it entirely backasswards. N0bama is the 180-degree polar opposite of the Chilean miners.

They "cling" to their faith and freedom, he "clings" to his ... um ... teleprompter.

Here's the character of N0bama (nothing like the Chilean miners):

Well, except the Chilean miners put on T-shirts with a psalm on the back and “JESUS” on the sleeve.

Obama hasn’t yet put on his T-shirt with a verse from the Koran on his back and “ALLAH” on the sleeve, because he’s still stuck at the bottom, waiting for BP to get him out.

Nope, Reidsheister, you are wrong.

The Chilean miners actually do real work and produce things of value.

The Dung-Beetle-in-Chief has never done any real work, and will never produce anything of value.

Oh, those minors have cojones - the Dung Beetle would have to look it up on Wiki to understand. (He needn’t bother looking in his pants.)

"The Roots of Obama's Rage" by Dinesh D'Souza spells out how Barry's behavior is a clear and calculated, no- hold- barred attack on America and its citizens.

We must suffer for the colonization of African countries by Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, and Belgium.

Barry is nuts... a danger to himself and others.

I’m working hard to drill him out of the hole he dug. Estimated time of rescue: two years & two weeks plus another couple of months to drag him and his crew out.

Huh? Why, because 0bama has been suspected of homobehavior and cannibalism?

Ok the cannibal thing has not been mentioned until now but can he prove he is not? It’s the seriousness of the charge that counts, right?

Yo Harry, I bet every one of those guys has a birth certificate he’s not afraid to show the world.

“He actually insulted the miners.”

Exactly, Marxists have no shame. They will go to the death in their filthy vile agendas and comments as all means available are justifiable to them as long as in their minds they believe it serves to further their satanic agenda.

That’s the problem with smoking crack and doing shots of whiskey at the same time and selling out to the Democrats. Pretty soon all you have to say is gibberish.

If you noticed, many of the miners crossed themselves when they got out from the pod. They did not genuflect and bow down to Mecca. And I am sure all the miners, with their families, were in church ASAP.
