Reid to Cantor: Stop 'throwing these bombs'

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is not backing down from his staff's attacks that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) is preparing to push an "extremist" agenda.

"Well, I think we set the tone working together in the lame-duck session, the most productive in the history of our country, and we did that by working together," Reid said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "And I say to my friend, Eric Cantor, 'Let's stop throwing these bombs and doing things like thinking it's-- the American people are happy that you're sleeping in your office or reading the Constitution.'"

Reid added: "There are things we need to do to deal with the real people problems. People have been out of work for long periods of time. People who are sick and tired of paying-- governments like Saudi Arabia billions of dollars every year-- to burn-- in these gas guzzlers that we have. So, there are things we can do to work together. But I-- I think that-- throwing these bombs doesn't do the trick."

I have a suggestion for Harry. If you don’t like what the House passes, then don’t pass it in the Senate. You don’t need to make this into a Civil War.

Harry

You are being incendiary. You are a seasoned pol, so you are presumed to be doing it deliberately for political reasons. We are on to you. You are doing it for ambition, power and control. Long ago you left the good of the American people behind as a motivation as did your party. Your party is rife with Communists, fascists and death.

If Stinky Harry can’t take the heat, he needs to get the hell out of the kitchen. Americans are not going to allow him and his corrupt comrades to destroy America.

Stop being a control-freak socialist.

Leftists depending on Big Media to report what the Dems say as absolute truth. Sounds to me like HR is inciting violence just like many of the Dems. The politics of personal destruction started with the Clintons arrival on the National Political scene. The only thing saving Conservatives is that over 50% of the public finally realizes that Big Media is completely Leftist.

Wow, accusing the GOP of “throwing bombs”. How about reserving that type of vitriol for those who actually threw bombs, Dingy Harry.

Wow.. That’s quite a quote from Reid. He better hope another lefty nutcase doesn’t do anything crazy.

Ooo, the squeaky little Mormon commie is using "bomb" language. If I read his speech in a TSA waiting line, I'd be on the inside for a nickel.

Your party is rife with Communists, fascists and death.

And those are its good points.

Gas guzzlers? Congresswoman Giffords, Harry’s “dear friend”, introduced legislation to cut the congressional budget. So, Harry, when are you going to start driving a Prius?

I think Dingy Traitor Harry, the Union King Election Thief and friend of RINOs everywhere, meant that it was the most DESTRUCTIVE session in history, not the most productive...

Senator Reid has had something of a monopoly on “bomb throwing.” He is justifiably outraged that anyone in a different political party might even consider doing the work he considers his own.

Sounds like Harry is preparing to take more shots at Eric ~ he’ll probably be reminding him of what happens when you jump the Liberal reservation!

What the 'ell have that weirdo Harry and his Democrat cohorts done over the past two years to create jobs -- that is what most of the American public wants, and most Americans realize that the Democrats do NOT want unemployment to disappear, until a few months before the Nov/2012 elections.

Harry is pathetic.

I can’t stop laughing. Reid is now worried about an extremist agenda. What a joke!!

Harry Reid is a mafia thug with so many skeletons in his closet that he should be spending jail time. Anyone interested in finding out how Dirty Harry is, should read my biography of Reid, it is the only book out there.

To 6 - LOL

Aside: Cantor is the wrong person for majority leader. We'd be better off, and better served, with someone like Bachmann in that position.

“Reid to Cantor: Stop ‘throwing these bombs’”

Agreed, we need to throw bigger more destructive “bombs”, to use your words.
