Whatever could you be talking about?
You have to see this one to believe it, folks. In fact, even that might not be enough. I've seen it, and I can't believe it. I yield to no one in my subterranean opinion of Harry Reid, but how can you . . . what could possibly lead you to . . . who would ever think they could get away with . . . just watch:
Harry Reid Says He Never Called ObamaCare Stories Lies
Seriously, what is this? We all know Reid is shameless and will say anything, presumably operating on the theory that the media will never call him out, no matter what he says. But . . . this?
I tried to come up with a scenario in which he had honestly forgotten having said it, but with as much coverage as it received, there is really no way you can find that theory plausible, unless he is simply not all there in some way that's above my pay grade to diagnose. Maybe someone just writes this stuff for him and he just gets up there and reads it and really doesn't give too much thought to what's he's saying. It's entirely possible that he doesn't read the conservative media that repeated his statement for weeks on end, but surely he has aides savvy enough to keep an eye on these things, and who would know that he couldn't get up and deny what there is clear video evidence of his having done, yes?
Or . . . is Reid just amusing himself here? Is he so confident that the media will never call him out that he is willing to get up and say something this brazen - knowing full well that everyone's jaws are dropping - and simply walk away grinning and muttering under his breath, "You'll never catch me"?
All I know is this: Ladies and gentlemen, this is the leader of the United States Senate. If you are not recoiling in horror at that realization, I do not know what else to tell you.
Secondly, I would like to say that I never called Harry Reid a liar.
He lied the first time and he lied the second time. See the pattern?
Liar! I read what you wrote. :)
Two reasons :
Brain Fart !
Ole TImers !
As a (very) old hand here, I must acknowledge that your posts over the years are good and...you are (very) funny.
Habitual liar with no social redeaming conscience
Brain dead psychophant !
How did a guy who spent his life in “public service” become a multimillionaire?
There was a lot of coverage on his quote, true. However it’d be easy for him to avoid it. He probably sticks to CNNABCNBCCBS. I’m sure they didn’t report on it.
HaHa! Well, he did say, “...to my recollection...”
Dingy needs to be collected and recollected until he is gone.
Well, I was pretty sure I remembered you saying he was a liar. But if you say not then maybe I just misremembered.
when Obamas big mega-lie “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” was first exposed as a lie, the first thing he tried was to deny he ever said it. Then he tried to water it down with “I meant you could keep it as long as it meets govt standards” or some other such bogus arguments. Then finally he just stopped talking about it altogether (and of course the MSM liars stopped asking about it).
So maybe Harry “The Ritz” Reid will follow that same game plan.

Becoming a multimillionaire through a lifetime of graft is one thing, but living at the Ritz is rubbing our noses in it.
He's all for the little guy, doncha know.
I’m amazed (a) that the Dems allow that tool to be one of their most prominent politicians, (b) that the Mormons allow that tool to be one of their most prominent public figures and arguably their single most prominent politician, and (c) that that tool hasn’t wound up in a hole somewhere in the outback of southern Nevada.
