Skip to comments.Harry Reid blasts Tea Party 'craziness' in GOP ("Things have gotten way out of whack")
Posted on 01/05/2014 3:06:20 PM PST by Libloather
"We cannot have a country that's paralyzed because of a group of people -- the group of people who are the Tea Party-driven Republicans in Congress, not Republicans," Reid said. "I'm not here to badmouth Republicans around the country. I get a lot of support from Republicans in Nevada, and always have had. But they're mainstream Republicans. They're not driven by this craziness that we have in America today."
Schieffer sounded astonished by what Reid was saying, and it was probably the first big headline of 2014 from a Sunday morning show. Schieffer pressed to know more about Reid's thinking on filibusters. The Nevada Democrat explained why he was holding out the ban as a possibility.
"I think everyone should understand that the country cannot continue on the road that it's on," Reid said. "You cannot have when you have vacancies in the judiciary as we've had, D.C. circuits, some say it's more important in the Supreme Court, but it's at least the second most important. They said, 'We're not going to fill these spots because we don't want to.' You can't. See, that's not the way we legislate."

“I’m not here to badmouth Republicans around the country.”
Um, yes you are.
“I get a lot of support from Republicans in Nevada, and always have had.”
Translation: I’ll do favors for anyone who has enough cash to contribute to my campaign coffers.
Go away, you creepy cryptkeeper.
This tactic smells of desperation...but I’ve been wrong before.
Hey Harry, you should do yourself a favor and check out the Marxist Commie whack jobs in your OWN party before you look at other people..oh wait, Harry thinks that Commie Marxist whackos are the “normal” people
It is time to make Dingy Harry RETIRED.
Mitch the Bitch must not have given him his normal Sunday hummer this week.
Dingy Harry has been way out of whack, probably since birth.
Yo, Pinky Reid, are we to believe that lying, commie crooks like you are now the standard of sanity?
Harry hates someone throwing a curve ball to his communist agenda.Get use to it Harry!
Harry Reid sounds like Bonehead Boohnior.
Yeah, shame on Americans who want limited, Constitutional government, and politicians who uphold the law instead of ignore it.
Good old get-rich-in-office Harry bellering when normal-thinking people don’t adopt his perverted line of socialistic illogic.
Where’s the gun of the guy in the yellow shirt? How did he end up disarmed?

I don’t care what Reid says. What upsets me is the RINO GOPers that are saying the same thing.
I can remember when supporting the constitution and defending freedom against these corrupt communist bastards was a good thing. Patriotic, not crazy. Things have definitely gone downhill in America ever since the communists killed JFK and took over our government. Obama, Reid, Pelosi, et al, godless commies to the core.
Sigh . . . And to think sue lowden would have beaten that guy. But noooooooo, we had to have batty sharron angle.
