Reid: Sandy Was Much Worse
Than Katrina, You Know

Townhall, by Guy Benson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/8/2013 5:59:48 AM

Whether he´s publicly recapitulating the hallucinations of an imaginary friend, or wrongly assuring the public that various government programs are "fully funded," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tends to struggle with the truth. The recent high-octane bout of partisan wrangling over whether to pass a porked-up Sandy relief bill is finally complete, and Reid is unhappy that Congress didn´t spend more money. To emphasize his frustration, he downplayed the severity of Hurricane Katrina´s destruction in order to cast Sandy as far worse -- thus indicting those who opposed even one cent of unrelated "relief"

There is a link to Senator Vitter´s furious response to Reid.

He sounds like a racist to me for making that remark. (yes, I am being sarcastic)

I really don´t understand why the Repub leadership even attempts to argue or debate Reid.
They should simply state that Reid is a fool, is too incompetent to be Senate Majority Leader (1200 days since a budget?), and dismiss him as a buffoon. (Ridicule him, to take a page from Rules for Radicals playbook)
That will guarantee to make Reid´s head explode, and act even more foolish.

Boehner isn´t getting enough credit for stopping this crazy pork spending that the left had their eyes on and mouths drooling over.$9 billion,if properly spent and that´s a big if considering it´ll go through NY and NJ´s graft machines,is more that enough to rebuild these areas.People all up and down the bureaucratic pipeline get their piece of the action.

Someone has to draw up rebuilding plans which could take months before a shovel even hits the ground.So in comes an army of high paid consultants right off the bat. They might even have to be approved by the UN central planners.

But anyway as this other pork goes through the House it can be voted down piece by piece.That would really be a coup if Boehner pulls it off.

Reid was trying to insulate Obama from criticism about the response to Sandy. Recall the article over the weekend where the woman who was used as a pre-election prop was saying that Obama lied to her when he promised her help. Everything Reid does is political. He has no moral core and will say anything to advance the Democrat party even at the expense of obvious truth.

Instead of comparing the two storms let´s compare places they hit. Liberals in New Orleans and Liberals in the NE have been taught from birth to worship Big Government. I can guarantee you that no one in Joplin or Mississippi was wandering around in their socks months after the storm hit waiting for Obama to show up. Do these fools think that their Masters are going to dump cash in their mailboxes? This money will be swallowed up by fraud and businesses who actually pay taxes so they can keep paying them. The idiots who bought houses on the beach and didn´t insure them need to relocate.

What Harry means is Sandy is worse than Katrina politically. That´s because some of FEMA´s shortcomings are blamed on Democrats.

I have never been against a hand up for these folks. What I am against is pork and the fact they sit on their backsides and do nothing but wait for government to save them. And yes indeed, Reid is a racist. But it is allowed due to the fact of his terminal disease of liberalism.

More background info on this in the local (Las Vegas) paper today, including additional data on how much worse Katrina was. Our beloved Harriet has also retracted his statement.

For legal reasons (copyright/patent trolls) we can´t link to the article, but you can easily find it by going to: L V R J dot Com.

A man on probation as a “non-violent offender” under California’s prison realignment program has been charged with kidnapping, raping, and torturing a 16-year-old girl in South Los Angeles, and detectives suspect he may be connected to three other recent murders. Robert L. Ranson, 30, was arrested in late March after the girl escaped from a U-Haul van in an alley near Imperial Highway and New Hampshire Ave., according to police and booking records. The girl was covered in gasoline and said her attacker, later identified as Ranson, had tied her hands and taped her mouth, and was trying to light her on

Dem Senator Nearly Hit by Train During
Press Conference About Commuter Safety

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) has been waging a campaign demanding safety accountability for the Metro-North railway this week after it was discovered that the MTA has had 139 violations resulting in $552,000 worth of fines over the last ten years. But as he discovered this week, there is also an element of personal responsibility when it comes to commuter train safety. Blumenthal was holding a press conference Friday on the Milford Metro-North station platform when an Amtrak train came barreling into the station and almost knocked him out cold. Just as Milford Mayor Ben Blake was saying, “safety, as you know,

Easter Miracle in Brooklyn for Shooting Victim

Despite being shot in the head twice, a young boy credits his faith in God for keeping him alive and able to sing his praises. A double Easter miracle will occur today as a 13-year-old Brooklyn boy who survived being shot two times in the head watches a live-streamed concert by the crouch choir in which he would otherwise have been singing. “They are giving me a lap top,” said miracle kid Gama Droiville from his bed in the pediatric unit at Kings County Hospital on Saturday. And anybody who wants to join young Gama in watching an Easter service

Dems want government health

With little fanfare, Vermont is preparing to become the first state to implement a single-payer, government-run health-care system. The Vermont plan, if implemented, would abolish private health insurance in the state and replace it with a taxpayer-funded system under which the state government directly pays doctors and hospitals. Of course the state is having a bit of trouble figuring out how to pay for the program’s estimated $2 billion price tag, considering that the entire state government’s operating budget is currently just $2.7 billion. Currently under consideration is an increase in the state sales tax from 6.9% to 29%. At

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Western lawmakers gather in Utah
to talk federal land takeover

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now." Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including

The Clintons´ ´conspiracy commerce´ memo
Politico, by Hadas Gold    Original Article

The famous Clinton White House document known as "the conspiracy commerce memo" has finally surfaced. The memo, which details how right-wing conspiracy theories made their way into the mainstream press, was written in 1995 and first acknowledged by the White House in 1997. The idea of a “conspiracy” was also famously referred to by Hillary Clinton in 1998, when she cited a “vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he ran for president.” The memo, part of the latest trove of documents released by the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday, outlines “the communication stream of conspiracy

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
