Reporters were put on notice that, “the two men would not take questions during a photo opportunity, and that reporters were expected to adhere to journalistic standards and codes of ethics, or risk being ejected from the room.” Alluding that free speech was out on hold during the photo opportunity. Two questions that come to mind are why did the Majority Leader call Hu a ‘dictator’. No questions on that. […]
What’s up with Harry Reid? The Senate majority leader lately has been saying stuff about other Democrats that he means as compliments but come across as kind of, well, off. Cringe-inducing, in a mild sort of way. In the latest such gaffelette, Senator Reid, speaking in New York City at a fundraiser hosted by Mayor Bloomberg, referred to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) of New York as “the hottest member” of […]
I see the latest White House and Dem Talking points is to point out that minority leader Boehner, if he becomes the Majority leader, would be beholden to lobbyist and special interests. Some left leaning commentators are making snide remarks about Boehner handing out big tobacco checks on the house floor, an allegation that has no basis in truth.
Ed over at HotAir picked up on the newest attacks and let folks know the truth. Speaker Pelosi has taken in double the Lobbyist cash then did the Minority leader. In addition, The current occupant of the White House has a wide range of Wall Street execs on his staff . So who is beholden to who?

Harry Reid’s version of “comprehensive Immigration Reform as of 1994 (a longish PDF here): Cut legal immigration, beef up border enforcement, end asylum abuse, and strengthen the ban on hiring illegals by providing counterfeit-proof IDs. Strangely, no mention of a path to citizenship. Sounds okay to me — where do I sign up, Harry? via Reid Was Against Illegal Immigration Before He Was for It […]
Guess Harry forgets that the unethical Senator Diane Feinstien (D-CA) used hand notes while doing a debate (which was against the rules) Maybe we should say Harry Reid Mocks her. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid poked fun at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who campaigned against Reid in his hometown. Reid (D-Nev.) took aim at the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, who joined Tea Party ralliers in Searchlight, Nev. to […]
Folks at the Tea Party Express have a short message for self identified ‘teaparty candidate’ Scott Ashjian… Get Lost!
It only took a couple of hours for the White House to endorse the new, bipartisan stimulus plan launched by Sens. Max Baucus and Charles Grassley yesterday — and a few minutes after for Harry Reid to kill it. The move angered Democrats in both the Obama administration and on Capitol Hill as Reid sent conflicting signals, surprised his colleagues, and might have touched off a leadership crisis if Reid […]
