Why Harry Reid Hates Mitt Romney
BuzzFeed, by John Stanton & McKay Coppins

Original Article

Posted By:afortiori, 10/9/2012 10:23:07 AM

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's scathing attacks on everything from Mitt Romney’s personal integrity to his devotion to his faith won't be going away for one simple reason, people close to the Democrat say: Reid personally, deeply loathes Mitt Romney. Reid, a fellow Mormon and one-time boxer who has never been known as much of an orator, has emerged unexpectedly this year as the Democrats' most effective attack dog, doing particular damage to Romney with questions and innuendo about his personal tax returns. With the election approaching fast, the Nevada senator seems to be looking for new excuses

Comments:
Reid does this on his own is said further down. No Dim does anything on his/her own... except maybe Uncle Joe Biden.

So is there any truth to the rumor that many other Senators, both parties, and staff don't care to be aroung Senator Reid because he might have a little problem with bladder and bowell control?

Former boxer? That explains a lot. Just a step behind Ali in the scrambled brains department, I'd say.

"Democrats' most effective attack dog"

You rarely see the terms "effective" and "Harry Reid" in the same sentence- unless the writer is a total idiot.

I think the real reason is that Mitt embodies what being a Mormon and a Christian means...

And Dingy Harry can't stand it, because it makes him look bad.

Harry Reid's hate only extends to political opponents. Those who seek to harm (1) his financial interests, including payola for him, his sons and cronies are Public Enemy #1 for Dingy Harry.

well, H. Reid really practices his religion
well, doesn't he. He lies about another man's taxes and is found to be a liar. He attacks another man's character and tries to bring shame agaainst Romeny and his entire family. Reid is a very small, little, pathetic human being. He should crawl back into a very deep hole.

So he had a really bad youth and learned some bad habits in order to survive. But after he attained some success he never seems to have helped others, just went for more and more power and riches. He's become a worm instead of a statesman and it shows.

"Effective" attack dog?

What Harry comes up with is ludicrous and close to sheer delusion. Harry's own past is rife with shady real estate and mobster dealings, and his base in Las Vegas was founded during his stint as Gaming Commissioner for the State of Nevada in the early 1980's. Later, he deflected criticism of the large degree of financial support he got from Jack Abramoff, by branding the financial shenanigans of that rascal as a "Republican scandal", after he collected the benefit.

"Two-faced" does not begin to describe the calumny and scorn "Dingy Harry" heaps upon those whom he has declared "enemies".

Mobsters are ON FBI TAPE referring to their corrupt connection Harry Reid --- aka --- "Mr. Cleanface" or "Mr. Gillette" (then chair of the Nevada gaming commission) as their ticket to avoid prosecution.

Specifically, mobster Joe Agosto funneled mob money to Reid via mafia lawyer Oscar Goodman.

The Carter adminstration --- after being heavily lobbied by Nevada Democrats --- declined to prosecute, but everyone involved knows Reid was on the take.

Reid is the dirtiest of scum, protecting murderers, drug dealers, and pimps, and he knows it.

This is the source of his bitterness.

Harry Reid is a liar and likely a crook! He knows that a Romney victory would draw enough GOP senate candidates along to dump him from his Majority Leader throne and he loves the power he has and the opportunity to help his friends and btw himself.

Harry Reid has sullied the senate. He is basically a wicked crook who has used his position to enrich himself. He along with Obama and Pelosi have done more harm to this country then anyone else in the last 50 years. He will go down in history as a terrible person. I hope the republicans take the senate and turn off his hatful microphone.

2. Corollary 1: Progressives are the most intolerant force in politics, because Progressivism cannot survive objective scrutiny. Progressivism thrives on ignorance and immorality.

Evil hates good. The cheap hate the generous. liberals hate conservatives. Harry Reid compares himself to Mitt Romney and in every respect sees himself coming up short. Harry is simply not much of a man, and what there is of him, is small minded, mean spirited, and despicable. a caricature of a human being. I think that answers the question.

Possibly Mr Reid is jealous of Mr Romney.
While Mr Reid was involved in shady land deals
prior to coming to Congress, Mr Romney was
doing charitable work for his church. Mr Romney is moral and ethical, unlike Mr Reid.

I wish they would quit referring to Harry as an ex-boxer. Is that supposed to give him gravitas or something? I have looked for any kind of boxing record for this mean little man and have found nothing. He doesn't list anything that I can find anywhere.

Harry claims he was an "amateur" boxer. That is pretty vague. What does THAT mean? For all we know he worked in a warehouse and packed things in boxes. Does anyone have more info?

I suspect Harry is an imposter. He was the loser that made up his accomplishments out of thin air.

I'd like to see him and Mitt in the ring together.

FTA: "He [Reid] told them Romney had “sullied” their faith, and insisted, “he is not the face of Mormonism.”

No matter how old I get, I continue to be amazed by so-called Christians who rage and sputter about someone else's percieved failings, when they themselves are so palpably motivated by hate. It must be exhausting to be Harry Reid, so bitter and resentful all the time. The green-eyed monster truly has him by the short hairs. Let's try something. Let's pray for him to reconcile with Mitt.

Harry's High School History teacher taught some kids to box in the gym after school. That's it - no matches, no Golden Gloves, nothing but a bunch of kids sparring in the gym after school.

The teacher became somewhat of a mentor for Harry after he graduated and perpetuated the myth.

This slimy little POS has been protected and financed by the corrupt "gaming" industry in Nevada for decades. He's as much of a Mormon as he is a "boxer."

Harry Reid should spend more time listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and less playing old Kingston Trio.

Reid's view of politics as expressed in "They Are Rioting in Africa" -

The whole world is festering with unhappy souls.
The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles.
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch.
And I don't like anybody very much!

Quid pro quo Harry - nobody likes you very much either!

I believe Mormons will withstand any scrutiny of their concern for the poverty-stricken. (I'm Mormon, and am putting in a 4-hour shift at the cannery this very afternoon.)

Here's some Mormon doctrine regarding welfare:

... I would that ye should impart of your substance to the poor, every man according to that which he hath, such as feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and administering to their relief, both spiritually and temporally, according to their wants.
(Book of Mormon, Mosiah 4:26. It's important to note that the advice is addressed to "every man," not to a collectivist group.)

Here's some more:
Thou shalt not be idle; for he that is idle shall not eat the bread nor wear the garments of the laborer.
(Doctrine and Covenants 42:42 I don't think Harry Reid has gotten that far yet.)

Last time I looked the LDS Church still believed in the 10 Commandments. Somebody should remind that sanctimoneous craven little creep Reid to take another look at the one that says "Thou shall not bear false witness". Which is exactly what he has been doing for the past several months when he unloads totally unsubstantiated comments about Romney supposedly not paying his taxes for ten years. By the way, I hear that Harry is a convicted pedophile. Prove that you're not Dingey Harry!

Can we, before our L-Tryptophan coma commences, vow to abandon all attempts to festoon Obamacare with ridiculous historical metaphors? The damn law is big, with a regulatory heft now in excess of 20,000 pages. But even this governmental behemoth groans under the weight of metaphorical ornaments both daft and dull.

In trying to assess the the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, two seemingly conflicted truths emerge for me. The first is that based on the case presented by the state, and based on Florida law, George Zimmerman should not have been convicted of second degree murder or manslaughter. The second is that the killing of Trayvon Martin is a profound injustice. In examining the first conclusion, I think it´s important to take a very hard look at the qualifications allowed for aggressors by Florida´s self-defense statute: Use of force by aggressor.

This week I had one of those moments.

Where Obama Went Wrong
In The Gun Control Fight
BuzzFeed, by Evan McMorris-Santoro & Ruby Cramer    Original Article
Posted By: afortiori- 4/20/2013 6:03:36 PM     Post Reply
In one of the toughest defeats of President Obama´s political career, the Senate this week sank a piece of gun control legislation that the White House had been laboring over for months. As the post-mortems of the loss begin, some have questioned if gun control got bogged down with the president´s ongoing struggle to effectively operate the levers of power in Washington. Culprits for the bill´s demise are plenty — from gutless Senate moderates, to inflexible pro-gun conservatives, to a brazen gun lobby that waged an aggressive, and sometimes misleading, campaign to defeat the legislation.

Pat Toomey obviously isn´t flummoxed by basic arithmetic. The Republican Pennsylvania senator is proving that as he and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., attempt to modestly modify requirements for criminal background checks on gun purchases. The two senators, both gun-rights advocates, are pushing legislation that would require such checks for all gun show and Internet sales. Toomey is being labeled a Judas in conservative circles for backing what is being described incorrectly as a gun control bill. It is not.

Five centuries before Christ, Sun Tzu wrote “The Art of War,” which teaches enduring principles of combat: Position troops so the enemy must face the sun. If an enemy leaves a door open, rush through. If outnumbered, retreat. The book by the ancient Chinese general and military strategist is well-known among those in the military and in the business world. Its underlying theme was the axiom, “All warfare is based on deception.” It is through this lens that Americans and others must view the situation with young North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Obama adviser: President doesn’t

President Obama has built a reputation for going around the traditional White House press corps in favor of so-called soft media, taking his message to “The View”, ESPN and friendly local radio, among other general-entertainment outlets. Who can forget these hard-hitting questions Obama was asked by a New Mexico radio station last August: “What’s your favorite song to work out to?” “If you had a superpower, what would it be?” But senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer scoffed at the suggestion that the White House is deliberately avoiding tough questions.

The Reverse-Joads of California
Wall Street Journal, by Allysia Finley    Original Article

During the Great Depression, some 1.3 million Americans—epitomized by the Joad family in John Steinbeck´s "The Grapes of Wrath"—flocked to California from the heartland. To keep out the so-called Okies, the state enacted a law barring indigent migrants (the law was later declared unconstitutional). Los Angeles even set up a border patrol on the city limits. Soon the state may need to build a fence to keep latter-day Joads from leaving. Over the past two decades, a net 3.4 million people have moved out of California for other states.

Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC talk show is facing cancellation amid poor ratings, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l.Farrow, 28 — the opinionated, blue-eyed son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which) — has been a disaster for MSNBC. The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered in late February.The theory was that Farrow, a Rhodes scholar who graduated college when he was 15 and went on to score degrees from Yale and Oxford, would bring his 245,000 Twitter followers with him to television

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

Today sees the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s (IPCC) latest findings on the state of "global warming" and the news isn´t good. Here are some of the highlights: Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won´t even have time to be infected - we´ll be dead before we hit the floor; Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged; Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across

A cup of Earl Grey ´as good as statins´

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
