Reid: Kochs ‘main causes’ of climate change
politico ^ | may 7, 2014 | BURGESS EVERETT

Posted on 05/08/2014 9:36:18 AM PDT by lowbridge

Charles and David Koch are one of the “main causes” of climate change, charged Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on the Senate floor.

“While the Koch brothers admit to not being experts on the matter, these billionaire oil tycoons are certainly experts at contributing to climate change. That’s what they do very well. They are one of the main causes of this. Not a cause, one of the main causes,” Reid said.

Now in his fifth month of flogging the billionaire conservative benefactors on the Senate floor, Reid dubbed them “multizillionaires” on Wednesday and mockingly applauded their spokeswoman for saying the Kochs and the energy conglomerate that they run aren’t experts on climate science. Wealthy liberal investor Tom Steyer challenged the Kochs to a debate on climate change last week in a full-page newspaper advertisement, but they declined to take him up on it.

It wasn’t just climate change: Reid also blamed the Kochs for imperiling an energy efficiency bill currently on the Senate floor

Reid has surpassed Sheila Jackson Lee and Maxine Waters on the stupid scale.

Good thing they don’t have to wear uniforms with the logos of all their contributors on it like race car drivers. Would have made this a very uncomfortable statement for him and many other Democrats.

No Harry...YOU are the cause of all the climate change, you farty windbag.

If you are that freakin concerned, do us all a favor: shoot yourself: save us from the noise pollution, the hot Co2 and the methane leaking from your orifices.
AND we’ll be glad to dump you on BLM land in NV so you can “organically” grow grass for Bundy’s cattle.

Slimebag....

Why should anybody care what a child molesting cattle rustler says?

And why does not one single member of the Senate rise up and shut him up?

Reid may be either delusional or has dementia.

I really hate Reid and I don’t like this. There is no way that a very senior and powerful public “servant” should be allowed to get away with saying this kind of stuff about taxpaying private citizens who have done nothing wrong.

Didn’t Reid get the memo?

It’s “Climate Disruption” now.

Harry, why should we bother spending a fortune on focus groups to test these talking points if you’re too stupid to remember to use them?

So, we put away the Kochs and climate disruption is taken care of?

Hmmm. Wonder if they want to take one for the team.

This is too easy.

Reid has surpassed Sheila Jackson Lee and Maxine Waters on the stupid scale.

That's because Queen Sheila has to take a break from the national stage to deal with attacks by the Mad Crapper in her district.

Warren Buffet owns or owned oil stocks in the Sudan I guess he caused Global Warming. He was asked to divest because of the genocide going on and he refused so I guess he is responsible for genocide.

Orderly #1 “More Thorazine for Mr. Reid!”

Orderly #2 “Who does he think he is today?”

Orderly #1 “He thinks he's Algore”

Orderly #2 “Usually he doesn't know who he is”

Orderly #1 “This one time he said that he was ‘Plastic Bertrand, the King of the Devon’”

That’s a great idea. It would let everyone know whom each Congresscritter is beholden to.

Reid’s fixation on the Koch brothers suggests a psychological problem on his part.

Whenever this idiot speaks, why isn’t there a cacophony of laughter and jeers? It would be the “normal” reaction.

It was the Koch brothers who invented the weather machine that Dick Cheney used to redirect Hurricane Katrina to decimate the Black population of New Orleans. (sarcasm)

They should now send out their spokesman to say:

“When we said we were not climate experts, that was true. However, we didn’t mean to imply that we are more ignorant or less intelligent than Harry Reid. That would be a very high bar indeed.”

I think he’s auditioning for a show on MSNBC. He is starting to make Chris Matthews look relatively sane.
