At first, it seemed like just another example of Harry Reid being Harry Reid.

The Senate majority leader, whose unscripted attacks can veer into bellicosity and take liberties with facts, spoke on the Senate floor last October and appeared to blame billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch for the government shutdown.

“By shutting down the government,” Reid said, “we’re satisfying the Koch brothers and Ed Meese, but millions of people in America are suffering.” In January, he went further, accusing the Kochs of “actually trying to buy the country.”

His staff affectionately refers to such ad libs as Reid “getting out ahead of his skis,” but the professional left, which had spent years agitating for a high-level Democratic campaign against the Kochs, cheered and urged him on.

More insight into hairy reid-iculous' man crush on the Koch brothers. I think they should "un-friend" him cause "That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works." At least a restraining order would be appropriate.

Further reading of the article reveals that hairy’s wife doesn’t even use his last name. Is she that m-bare-ased? Can’t really blame her. Then again she can’t be too bright since she married the pos.

It’s all a diversion to take the spotlight off of RAT billionaires like Soros, Schmidt, Gates, and Buffett.

Any politician needs a boogie man to run against and to rouse the rabble to their side. The Rats have the Koch brothers, we have Soros. Reid just has a better media friendly platform to slur from.

This is how organized crime works which should not be surprising since Reid, Pelosi, Obama, Holder and Jarrett are operating an organized criminal activity determined to destroy any rivals and take total control of American government and our economy.

“After the 14th statement adverse to me issued by a spokesman for the Koch brothers, it seems abundantly clear I have gotten under their skin,” Reid goaded from the Senate floor in March. “I am not afraid of the Koch brothers. None of us should be afraid of the Koch brothers.”

Careful there, Harry. The Koch's might have you audited ....

Oh, never mind.
