Government shutdown: Harry Reid: ‘I am not a criminal’

Government shutdown: Harry Reid: ‘I am not a criminal’ By: Burgess Everett October 2, 2013 11:24 AM EDT

There will be no charm offensive from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who said Wednesday that Republicans are “obsessed” with beating him in a political chess match rather than opening back up the government.

“Some in the Republican conference are too mad at me personally, too obsessed at getting me personally to back down from doing what most of America believes is the right thing,” Reid said, again reiterating that the Senate’s six-week clean spending bill is the only way out of a shutdown.

The Nevada Democrat also defended his role in fighting Republican attempts to water down Obamacare as a condition to keeping the government open, responding directly to a National Review piece that called him the “villain of villains.”

“When I read this yesterday, I thought, no one likes to be called a villain,” Reid said, reading aloud definitions of the word that mean “uncouth,” “scoundrel” or “criminal.” “I am not a criminal. I am not a scoundrel. So they better get a different definition of me.”

Yes, you are! You stole your last election!

Exit polls showed your opponent winning against you in your last Senate race.

Then, somehow, (miraculously) you jumped more than five percent into the lead.

Your cronies stuffed the ballot box.

Uh, Harry...you are the one who made it personal when you called Cruz an Anarchist and a Terrorist.

”Harry Reid is a mealy-mouth, and he was in their pocket just like the rest of them. . .he’s a worm. . . all you’ve got to do is read the poem he read when they had that phony Sinatra licensing. . . Reid was the chairman, and he read this kiss-*ss poem. He’s a faker.”

—Former Las Vegas FBI agent Joseph Yablonsky, when asked to comment on Harry Reid’s relationship to the Mafia

Pretty amusing that Senator Gillette or Mr. Cleanface (as mobsters called him on FBI wire taps) tries to pretend to not be crooked.

Anyone less well-connected than Reid would be rotting in federal prison.

Harry, add senile to your list of faults. I seem to recalled a bill to fund military pay sailing through with little opposition. Please explain why the same can't be done for other "critical" funding requirements. Is there something else more pressing that you must devote the Senate's time to, or is it you and little Barry are just criminally piss'd you're not getting your way?

What Chicken Sh!ts you all are...

I called shiiteheads office after I heard him disrespect Mr.Cruz after the filibuster. I really tried to be respectful like Mark Levin said to be. I couldn’t. I just couldn’t hold back my utter distaste for this waste of skin.

I ended up telling him that he will be hung from the highest branch of the tree of liberty .

Actually Reid is a criminal and he knows why. He has never been indicted though. But he has committed crimes.

He has a voice like Godfather Vito Corleone

Good one. But with all due respect to Nixon's family, he was arguably small potatoes compared with the corrupt federal lawmakers that we're dealing with now.

He's a LIAR and a criminal!

KEEP THE GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN. This is the fight of all fights. This is the soft American Revolution against Tyranny. Boehner MUST NOT cave to the petulant little foreigner in the White House. If things get worse, so be it. Let 0bama close down everything and hurt the public even more. Nothing is more hurtful or intrusive as the IRS and their stinking mandatory health care TAX.

The GOP should hold the line and DEMAND that Benghazi, IRS targeting conservatives and DOJ spying on Fox News with a bogus warrant against James Rosen ALL be assigned special select committees and subpoenas for all relevant witnesses, including all evacuees from Benhazi, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, etc.

Let's see a return of ACCOUNTABILITY TO THE WHITE HOUSE ONCE AND FOR ALL THEN BEING ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST OBAMA AND HIS CRIMINAL REGIME.
