“Dirty Harry” Reid Exposed by MSNBC
Posted by Steve Markowitz on April 5, 2014
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is known for his hyper partisan politics and a willingness to use lies in attacks against opponents. One of the better known examples was his claim during the last presidential campaign that Mitt Romney did not pay income taxes. While the attack was proved false, Reid was unapologetic.
This week Reid was at it again, calling the Koch brothers un-American for supporting conservative candidates with their wallet. The attack was pure McCarthyism now embraced by the Liberal Left. However, it even made some on the Left uncomfortable as demonstrated by it being condemned by a media ally during MSNBC’s Morning Joe show. During the show, host Joe Scarborough correctly called Reid a liar and none of the other host or guest were willing to come to Reid’s defends. In fact even unabashed Democratic supporterMika Brzezinski criticized the Majority Leader indicating that she “cringed” at Reid’s comments.
The fact that Harry Reid is a partisan politician is not news. That could be said for most of his fellow senators on both sides of the political aisle. The fact that Reid is a liar places him in a bit smaller group of fellow senators. However, it is the way Harry Reid has damaged the stature of the office of the Majority Leader that is so disgraceful. It shows how little regard Reid has for his country.
