Skip to comments.Harry Reid super-committee picks in place (A known liar/perjurer, an anti-war Socialist...)

n the first of what will be a closely watched selection process for a powerful new deficit panel, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced he will appoint Democratic Sens. Patty Murray (Wash.), Max Baucus (Mont.) and John Kerry (Mass.) as his three choices for a super committee charged with finding more than $1 trillion in spending cuts by the end of this year.
Murray will serve as co-chair of the 12-member panel. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will select her co-chair and two other panelists, as required by the debt limit agreement signed into law by President Barack Obama last week. Minority Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell will each select three additional members.
The Joint Select Committee has been charged with forging the balanced, bipartisan approach to deficit reduction that the American people, the markets and rating agencies like Standard and Poors are demanding, Reid said in a statement. To achieve that goal, I have appointed three senators who each posses an expertise in budget matters, a commitment to a balanced approach and a track record of forging bipartisan consensus.
Reids three picks are loyal to the majority leader and are intended to show the Nevada Democrat is serious about forging a bipartisan deal to head off $1.2 trillion in spending cuts required under the debt deal. The super committee was Reids contribution to the bipartisan agreement to end the debt limit fight.

Shame, shame, shame. This trio is abusive to our Constitution and to our military. NO TO JOHN KERRY!!!
This committee is about as legal as czars....
Don’t think for a mInute Obama didn’t have some input.
Patty Murray is Reid's choice for co-chair and Boehner gets to choose who Murray's fellow co-chair will be.
No word yet on whether Patty Murray has located those day-care centers she claimed Osama Bin Laden had built for poor women in the Muslim world.
When he was told he needed to choose three members for a Super Committee, HE thought they said Stupor Committee, and... well, the rest is history...
Ok...my bad...sort of. Pretty fuzzy sentence structure.
As my old dad used to say (and still does, actually): “If the foo shits”
Okay Harry, I’ll see your 3 stooges and raise you with..................Rubio, Demint, Rand.
Here is a woman so blinkeringly stupid that she actually thought Osama bin Laden and the Taliban made DAY CARE CENTERS - you know so women could continue their education or work - except that if you tried to educate yourself or work - THEY KILL YOU!!!!
This committee is about as legal as czars....
What? You have problems with a Royal Congress and a Congress of Commons?
Every lickspittle Party toadie, hack and wannabee in the media and even on this site said this was the BEST DEAL WE COULD GET at this time. You would doubt the word of so many wardheelers, especially since it was phrased the same way over and over? You would contest the honor of a fake tan metrosexual golf caddy? What could possibly go wrong from denying 38 states from effective representation?
Is this Constitutional?? To put so much power into the hands of such few?? What recourse do we, the voters, have?? It is ridiculous.
I have absolutely very little faith in the GOP to get this right.
>> This committee is about as legal as czars....
...and about as stupid as a soup sandwich.
What the hell was that jackass Boner thinking when he put THIS turkey of an idea together??!?
ObamaCare needs defunded and abolished.
Dodd/Frank bill needs abolished
The community reinvestment Act amendments are still in existence that caused the economic housing collapse. Abolish them.
Cut all salaries immediately of all the senate and congress, POTUS
Cut all pork and special interest
NO MORE LOBBIESTS
Downsize the EPA,IRS,DOE,DOEduc
Fire all of Obama’s czar's and their staff
CUT our ties to the UN
CEASE sending all countries and dictators billions
NO MORE POTUS campaigning on our dime
IMPEACH AND REMOVE OBAMA
is a start...
Boner needs to send three critters who voted against his Satan Sandwich.
One thing for sure, Baucus is very much a pro 2nd Ammendment senator. That said, he’s also an avowed, professional drunk!
“Reids three picks are loyal to the majority leader and are intended to show the Nevada Democrat is serious about forging a bipartisan deal...”
What? One of the best examples of masterful rhetorical mis-direction that I’ve ever seen.
Harry Reid super-committee
picks PRICKS in place...
Your title had a spelling error so I fixed it for you...
I did a double-take on that line too. It is awkwardly written.
