If you can stomach the article, at what point do you think Harry Reid lost his mind? Any recent dates come to mind? Any recent events? wth is he thinking?

  • He and Nancy are the scourge of the democrat party. Kennedy would be but he is on the wagon now. Oh wait. He died.

  • "I believe, personally, we have a constitutional obligation, a responsibility, to do congressionally directed spending. I do not feel comfortable turning that over to the people downtown," Reid said, referring to federal agencies that would assume the responsibility of designating federal funds in the absence of congressional direction.


    It's all too clear.  Didn't Reid make part of his fortune by buying land that ended up being used for an earmark project?

  • complained it would only take power away from Congress and give it to the president. "I am not in favor of delegating my constitutional responsibility to the White House," he said.


    So with these words, I am having problems making heads or tails.  Is it that he doesn't want to lose the power, or is it that the doesn't trust the WH do use it correctly?  LOL.  Conundrum . . .

  • Oh, and to answer the original question, I think he lost his mind when the American people voted in a balance of power. It must be hard to watch it all disintegrate in front of your eyes.

  • Reid lost his mind years ago. Anyway, I had to marvel at the article and the instances that some were able to get military items through earmarks. Why not just just put it in the budget or in a separate bill just for that? They are playing on peoples thoughts that we should do all we can for the military. Great, I agree too but earmarks are not the only way to do it. That's the problem with congress. Things are done all wrong. I say bring on as many one issue bills as they want. Vote on them and if they are good and they are known to be worthy of spending then they will pass. The day of 3 day work weeks is over. Get in there and do the business that needs to be done. Bribes and favors are not included.

  • My main problem with Reid is that he is has become a career politician. He is only caring about what his position can do for himself. He is a power-hungry and only time he does anything good for America is if it will make him look good.
