Desperate For Relevancy, Harry Reid Resorts To Name Calling
Lifelong politician and exercise band victim Harry Reid verbally assaulted U.S. Army Brigadier General and medical doctor Joe Heck, who is running to replace the retiring Reid in the U.S. Senate, during a press gaggle Tuesday.
Reid, who knows nothing of the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve our country overseas, called Heck a “fraud” and “phony” because he’s afraid that Democrats might not win back the Senate if they lose his seat.
“If we lose Nevada, we’re dead in the water,” he said.
Despite controlling the House, Senate, and White House in 2009 and 2010, Democrats chose not to pass comprehensive immigration reform and have instead blamed Republicans in subsequent years for its failure to garner the votes for passage. It was on this issue that septuagenarian Reid chose to attack Heck, but Heck’s campaign spokesman set the record straight with Las Vegas’ Channel 13:
“Sen. Reid has either a selective or failing memory, because if he wanted to pass comprehensive immigration reform, he would have made it a priority in 2009 and 2010 when Democrats had a 20-seat majority in the Senate, a nearly 80-seat majority in the House, and President Obama in the Oval Office,” he said in an email. “Instead, he’d rather use it as a weapon to divide Nevadans and install his handpicked replacement Catherine Cortez Masto as Nevada’s next hyper-partisan Senator.”
Perhaps Reid’s exercise band mishap did irreparable damage to Reid’s ability to reason, but regardless of the reason, Senator Reid’s sad final days in office are an embarrassment to the office in which he serves.
