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 Ryans 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 Romneys extreme right wing agenda, which asks middle class families to sacrifice in order to protect millionaires and billionaires from paying their fair share.
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.
Chris Matthews write this one?
Just how many “victims” of Issac are there anyway?
Harry is such a tool.
did Isaac ever reach hurricane status or was it just a tropical storm???
Then why are you still in Washington Harry, remember Democrats told us the Gulf Region would not be forgotten on their watch?
Based upon their recent comments, Slow Joe and Addled Harry are both off their medication again.
Reid is such a creepy, little man unit. He gives me the willies.
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.
Where are Biden's State tax returns?
Comeon Harry, your just POd that Romney ruined obamas chance for an “I Care” photo-op.
BTW Harry, where was obama when Joplin was destroyed by that tornado? Inquiring minds want to know!
Keep it classy Harry
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?
Harry Reid....the one guy at the dog track betting that a sno cone will win.
So, you think they can keep this up till Nov.? They sound so silly and crazy. As if Romney & Paul Ryan have any reason to cut taxes on “millionaires and billionaires”.
