Reid Statement On Governor Romney's Visit To Louisiana
Senator Reid ^ | August 31, 2012 | Senator Reid

Posted on 08/31/2012 3:54:18 PM PDT by mdittmar

Washington, D.C. -- Senator Reid released the following statement on the visit by Governor Mitt Romney to survey the damage from Hurricane Isaac in Louisiana:
 
“Under a Romney-Ryan administration, we would not have been prepared to respond to Hurricane Isaac. If Paul Ryan and his fellow House Republicans had succeeded in blocking disaster relief last fall, there would have been no aid for the victims of Isaac today. And Paul Ryan’s budget would gut disaster funding, making it much harder to get aid to our fellow Americans in their time of need.

“It is the height of hypocrisy for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to make a pretense of showing sympathy for the victims of Hurricane Isaac when their policies would leave those affected by this disaster stranded and on their own.

“This is yet another example of Mitt Romney’s extreme right wing agenda, which asks middle class families to sacrifice in order to protect millionaires and billionaires from paying their fair share.”

C’mon really?

This isn’t one of those satire/fake statements but actually real?

Their rhetoric is so formulaic it’s really hard to tell anymore if it’s real or satire.

Just how many “victims” of Issac are there anyway?

Harry is such a tool.

Same stuff, different day.

By the way, Harry, you know those “defective” levees blamed on Bush, but supposedly repaired under Obama? They failed again.

Got an explanation for that?

I believe it was a slow moving Cat 1. It appears NOLA was spared flooding but many outlying areas got flooded, some areas entire houses under water. I haven’t heard the MSM cover it much, so it must be a conservative area.

But Harry, you’re an “undocumented” millionaire, where did you get all of your money?

And before you flap your pie hole about any spending, or legislation, where’s YOUR budget?

This damage control because Obama put campaigning before the flood victims is the only transparent thing the obamagang has done lately.

Harry, it’s about time you went back to Nevada and rejoined your mob.

I'd like to point out that Biden hasn't paid any State Income Taxes in at least a couple of decades.

Where are Biden's State tax returns?

Reid had two statements in the can. This is the one labeled, “Romney DOES visit Isaac-stricken areas.”

The other one excoriated Romney for heartlessly continuing to campaign, while Obama DID visit.

Reid is beneath contempt. Since when did the office of the Senate Majority Leader properly feel any need to use its budget and manpower as an in-kind contribution to his party’s current presidential candidate? This has NOTHING to do with current Senate business.

What next, Reid? How about a bill to just print $100M and send it to Obama For America 2012?

Good question but there will be thousands when the total assessment of the damages are finalized. Flooding is the major impact with some wind/tornado damage and the last I heard there were four deaths.

It is scheduled for Monday. It takes time to make arrangements with his busy schedule don’t you know. He was in Ft Bliss in Tx today and could have made a couple hours flight change and been on the ground.

Reid, the gift that keeps on giving:

*Alleged ties to the Mob when he was Casino Commissioner
*Brain-damage from boxing
*Lives in a very white state, and lives very well
*Son has had legal troubles/honesty problems/cronyism
*Dumb as a doorknob, but slimy as Nancy Pelosi (or shit on a stick)
*The face of intolerance by the Democrat Party
*Psychopathic liar (re Romney not paying taxes for 10 years.
*Delusional - was told about Romney and tax issues by a voice on the phone (I don’t think he owns a phone. just hears things on his own).
*Spent too much time out in the Nevada desert, alone and without a hat
*Wonder how much time he spent at the Mustang Ranch? I hold, from a voice on the phone, that his nickname was “Dirty Dingy Harry”.

Hey Harry, “One Ringy Dingy; Two Ringy Dingies”.

How the hell did the people of Nevada elect this moron to Congress? What is in the water? (I know what is in some of the water. I worked on several environmental pollution cases out where he lives. Harry, drink wine, but in moderation. Oh hell, drive whatever you want and in quantity. The drunker you are, the more you expose what a putz you are. Cheers, you brain-addled desert rat.)

If Mitt Romney walked across Lake Ponchatrain, Reid’s response would be, “This just goes to show that Mitt Romney cannot swim.”

Isaac did end up being a Cat 1. Most hurricanes hit and then scoot on out of the area. But Isaac was only moving 5-6 mph and would not budget, thereby subjecting the same area to massive amounts of water over and over.

Houston experienced the same situation several years ago when Allison sat over our city and refused to budge for a very long time. Houston has spent millions and millions of dollars upgrading their flood control in the meantime but, according to our local Flood Control officials, if it had to withstand the pounding that NOLA just went through it would put the entire area under water.

You can lessen the damage but it can never be totally eliminated.

I would certainly expect to hear some of the arguments we have heard in the past against spending massive amounts of money on flood control simply because our entire coastal area is very close to sea level.

I would hate to think how much whining we would have heard out of people on the east coast had they had as much rain there, given all the crying we heard from them earlier this year.

I don't think that's a function of the Senate.

Repeal the 17th amendment.

Right about now my visulization of Harry Reid is of one of those small yapping dogs who just won’t shut up. He is standing next to a pile of Obama feces, he knows he is about to become Senate MINORITY Leader and is doing everything he can to confuse, delay and obfuscate. Won’t work Harry, you are about to get your comeuppance and it cannot happen soon enough!

Under a Romney-Ryan administration, we would not have been prepared to respond to Hurricane Isaac.

Perhaps Harry could explain where Obama was during the Texas wildfires last year ?

There's a good reason why I won't watch the Democratic National Convention this coming week--I don't want to spend a fortune on antacids and pain killers because of arguing back at the screen. And Sen. Harry Reid just annoys me to no end, either.
