    Just when you thought the fat white liberals in DC couldn't stoop any lower, Reid comes out with this scientific statement. Ah, Dems and science.

    CORRUPTION RULES!!!!!

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/05/harry-reid-koch-brothers-climate-change-106441.html

    From the link:

    Charles and David Koch are one of the “main causes” of climate change, charged Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on the Senate floor.

    “While the Koch brothers admit to not being experts on the matter, these billionaire oil tycoons are certainly experts at contributing to climate change. That’s what they do very well. They are one of the main causes of this. Not a cause, one of the main causes,” Reid said.

    Sometimes I wish we had a system where each group gets to pick 3-4 from the other side to step down. Harry Reid would easily be in that 3-4.

    I truly think he and Pelosi are suffering from some sort of dementia. Sad, really.

    Harry Reid is always such a Koch-knocker.

    I can almost understand Pelosi getting re-elected constantly, but the people of Nevada have some serious issues.

    Reid, Pelosi, McConnell and Boehner need to retire to the Villages.

    That is starting to look fairly good as long as the Republicans don't screw the pooch. This is not a yay team on my part either, thisguy has been in power to long and has consistently abused his authority.

    Reid has been a 'public servant' all his life, yet is a multi-millionaire...

    What's wrong with this picture?

    It makes me I'll when lawmakers toast the retiring (more often, dead...) lawmaker saying that he "devoted his life to public service..." BULLSH!T... He devoted his life to lining his pockets with the American citizens' hard-earned money... These people deserve NO special consideration whatsoever. Serving on the state and/or federal legislature should be like serving on jury duty. No person should benefit from this work.

    Nah. Harry is dumb like a fox. He knows who is paying his salary from this point to the end of his life. He will carry their water no matter how rediculous or shrill he sounds.

    Oh, and as far a Harry is concerned, it is certainly not the people of the great state of Nevada. They don't pay enough.

    Personally, all I see is a Democratic politician playing his cards according to the master plan. Class warfare will be the norm for the foreseeable future. Getting him out of the majority position is a step in the right direction but it won't stop him. And he isn't crazy (Pelosi I am not sure about), he is a career politician and is good at his craft. Good for him, sucks for the country.

    The Koch brothers are feared by Liberal Democrats. The Kochs political views are much more libertarian in total than conservative. Just like most of the great middle class. Once the middle class wakes up to that fact, it will certainly pull many voters who right now are somewhat inclined to vote democrat. They must be politically destroyed NOW.

    What I find depressing is the lack of Dem leaders expressing their disappointment with Reid's comments? (I long ago gave up on the MSM holding Reid to account.) When some boneheaded Rep makes a stupid comment, the other Reps trip over themselves to get out a statement expressing their concern and distancing themselves from the dolt. Instead, the Dems casually comment that it's just Harry being Harry or he's just being colorful to make an important point. Is there any measure of embarassment for Dems that this guy is one of their top dogs and he makes comments like this?
