Skip to comments.Reid blames Ted Cruz for kid with cancer comment, Politico runs cover (Video)

According to Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev, it's apparently Ted Cruz's fault that he gave CNN's Dana Bash the answer he did regarding children with cancer, going by audio posted Wednesday at Real Clear Politics. Politico's Dylan Byers, in the meantime, was busy covering for the Senate Majority Leader by trying to make people believe that Reid didn't say what he said, Newsbusters' Tom Blumer reported.
Bash asked why Reid did not support a GOP measure that would help children with cancer.
"But if you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldnt you do it?" she asked, according to a transcript provided by Blumer.
"That's a f--," Reid began before being cut off by Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.
"Why pit one against the other?" Schumer asked.
"W-W-W-Why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own. This is to have someone of your intelligence to suggest such a thing," Reid stammered.
"Im just asking a question," Bash said in response.
"Maybe means youre irresponsible and reckless," an angry Reid spit back.
But Reid later tried to blame it on Ted Cruz and the House Republicans.
"The whole answer is this: Why would we want to have the House of Representatives, John Boehner, cherry-pick what stays open and what stays closed," he said, seemingly forgetting that the Constitution gives the House the right to do exactly that.

Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high volume ping list!
They’re not trying to cherry pick what stays open and what stays closed. They’re trying to open everything one-at-a-time if they have to.
ooooooooohhh...Dana Bash, a HUGE LIBERAL, got DISSED nby Reid~!! Is she going to have to BOW even LOWER to these people??
I’m thinking about signing up at Polutico just to leave comments for the Obama Gerbils over there.
“Sen. McConnell Press; @McConnellPress
Sen. McConnell asked consent to pass the #Veterans funding bill. Sen. Reid objected to funding the Veterans programs.”
Media headline: “Republicans to blame for lack of Veterans funding!”
It’s always the same...
Harry “The Buck Stops Here” Truman would be appalled.
With these people, it’s always someone else’s fault.
Tea Party BUMP!
The Representative Branch not only has the right...It has the DUTY to control the purse strings!!...It was part of the design!!!......Talk about the ultimate Law of the Land! Geez!
I'm afraid that most of “We the People” don't have a clue of how our REPUBLIC was designed to work....(democrats and republicans alike) We've turned ourselves into a “democracy” (mob rule)and don't even know it!
Dont believe me?....Look how us supporters of the Constitution as it was written are being labeled...Anarchists?...Terrorists?
“Obama Gerbils” - perfect.
And all Dana Bush had to do was tell Reid that the congress certainly DOES have the right, authority and resposibility represent the people andt tell the exec to quit borrowing money fringe our children who are slated to pay for this when they won’t see a dime of it
They keep the Saul Alinsky playbook close to the vest pocket for easy reminders on what to do. isolate, personalize, attack
“TED CRUZ! TED CRUZ! TED CRUZ!”
“TEA PARTY! TEA PARTY! TEA PARTY!”
When there is no budget, you have to cherry pick. Otherwise you are giving them a blank check.
Get.Out. Bwahahaha This is right up there with "you can just smell the tourists coming".
