Is he off his meds? Dr. Krauthammerís diagnosis of Harry Reid
Biz Pac Review ^ | July 16 2014 | Tom Tillison

Posted on 07/16/2014 10:38:42 AM PDT by PoloSec

Pulitzer Prize-winning conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer wonders whether Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is “on his medication or not.”

But is this an official diagnosis?

Among his impressive list of accomplishments in life, Krauthammer is a licensed psychiatrist and practiced medicine for three years at Massachusetts General Hospital, so some would argue he is qualified to assess Reid’s mental health.

The good doctor was a panelist on Fox News’ “Special Report with Bret Baier” on Tuesday and the participants were discussing the wave of illegal immigrant children overrunning the U.S. border with Mexico.

Earlier in the day, Reid had the audacity to say “the border is secure,” and Dr. Krauthammer let him have it.

“When you hear Harry Reid saying the border is secure you got to wonder, you know, whether he’s on his medication or not,” he told his fellow panelists. “That is so detached from reality.”

“How many do we have now? 60,000 at least — kids who come over?” he added. “And we’re completely helpless.”

I have figured out these lies are told by the liberals just to keep us enraged. You know the situations are the exact opposite.

That’s no joke, all the top Dems have mental issues, severe mental issues, I mean we could list the examples for the next 20 years. This is what is running the country and why everything is going to hell in a handbasket. None of these people, Obama, Pelosi, Hillary, Reid, should be anywhere near anything even resembling a position of authority because they are ALL severely mentally deranged.

Heard Rush say similar comments about Reid. “If he were in our family, we’d be having conversations amongst ourselves on what to do with Uncle Harry.”

Hurray for Dr. Krauthammer for telling it like it is!

Having Harry “the Undertaker” Reid in charge of the Senate is the best prescription for a do-nothing, obstructive, waste of 100 leather seats in Washington today.

Not to mention the waste of 435 leather seats in the other chamber of anti-progress headed by the winner of the “George Hamilton Tanning Contest”.

Reid may or may not be mentally ill, but what is certain is that he knows the truth is not on his side, therefore he lies, lies, lies all day long. He spouts propaganda because if he told the truth, he would lose support from all but the most leftist communistic sadistic people in Nevada.

Obviously, Charles is being colorful, not clinical. However, I am sure, given his training, he’s conducted profiles on various public figures. I’d love to know his professional analysis of Obama.

Certain affects do present, and Dr. Krauthammer has had experience in observing these over his years of practice.

Liberalism may not be a mental disease in and of itself, but it is highly attractive to persons who suffer from one or more mental limitations. The personalities that are most attracted to the potential for political power in this rather distorted picture of human interactions, tend to already have impaired critical thinking skills, and the relatively isolated position in which they find themselves after elevation to some elected or appointed office, further exacerbates this distorted thinking.

Can you say “sociopath” or “narcissist”? How many liberals fall into either of these categories?

Reid and Pelosi got where they are in the 'rat party partly on the basis of their willingness to spout any load of crackpot BS that the left wanted pushed into the public sphere. They have absolutely no moral governor on their mouths and that is very useful to those who need to be more circumspect in their public discourse.

You don’t need a medical degree to see that Harry Reid’s comments are insane.

Agreed, it is no joke - but neither of us discovered the concept: Liberalism is a Mental Disorder

I was sincerely considering a charter boat service in Honduras and thought twice about it. Hell, if most of those MF’ers are here, I might rethink things.

I was on a plane from Houston to Boston today and there was a ton of those little dreamers on the plane. I was rubbing elbows with a stinky one all flight.

Reid is either delusional due to mental illness/dementia or is knowingly lying. Troubling what ever the reason.

If they all stayed in Boston, I am okay with it. They deserve every one of the little dreamer stinkers because they’re the ones that put clowns like Obama in office.

Harry's an ornery, not very honest, old coot. He knows his case is weak. It makes him nervous, so he blurts out an opinion wildly at odds with the facts.

All the psychoanalyzing is beside the point. A lot of what politicians say isn't intended to reflect reality but to serve their political ends, so talk about being delusional is beside the point.

You could reply, though, that if a politician says something that is so wildly untrue as to hurt their own cause or chances, that crazy is an appropriate word to use.

“Could you tell us a little bit more about the group?”

The plane was full of them. Teenagers and children carrying large manilla envelopes with minders. None of them spoke a lick of English. One of the minders asked me to give up my seat so the cute little dreamers could sit together. I told her I was pissed and she can go *%$# herself.
