Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Republicans may have helped Russia annex Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in a surprisingly sharp attack ahead of a test vote on a bill authorizing more U.S. sanctions on Russia and $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine. […]

Don’t you have to be mentally competent to serve in the Senate?

Apparently not.

Yes, IF ONLY the Republicans would agree with the DemocRATS that we should give up American sovereign control of AMERICAN funds given to the IMF, the Russians would quickly evacuate Crimea.

Reid is clearly losing it (IF he ever actually had it).

We must not let the world forget that it was Obama, as a Senator, that disarmed Ukraine and thus enabled Putin / Russia to take Crimea.

One has to wonder if Reid has completely gone over the edge here or he is simply stirring the left wing moonbat cauldron ...

To what purpose would be say such ridiculous statements...???

I for one think he's bored with power and simply playing the media and the right for fools...

Harry has a staff member who is writing this outrageous, inflammatory stuff.

Harry appears to be too feeble to think up this stuff on his own.

And .. the dems are in panic city and they are willing to do and say anything inflammatory against the GOP.

Stupid move Harry .. all this does is make people dislike the dems even more.

A little desperation creeping in, Harry??

YOUR party’s watch.

YOUR party’s 3am Phone Call (just like Benghazi).

YOU own it, Harry.

That should be the only thing we hear coming out of the GOP.

And instead.... [crickets... chirp.....]

Anything to distract from the notice of what Obamacare actually is and what it is doing. As the taxes set in and people’s premiums(those who are actually paying the freight) start going up, people are going to start to boil. When those who are actually paying see their premiums double and triple, they are going to start to rebel. It’s going to happen. It’s just a matter of when Obama can no longer delay things for a year or two.

Our son truly believes that Reid is mentally ill. We have to agree. His statements are not those of a rational human being. Not even of a partisan rational human being.

It’s also common knowledge that the fact Moochelle has a big butt despite her allegedly healthy eating habits is all the Republicans’ fault.

By the time Nuclear Harry ends his vaudeville impersonation of a lunatic Senator denouncing the opposition for its role in Crimea, Vladimir Putin will have already taken over Ukraine, so there will no longer be a reason for Congress to send aid to the already-conquered Ukrainians.
