Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) Is A Piece Of Shit
 
Harry Reid Implies Sequester Caused Explosion That Killed 7 Marines In Nevada

On the Senate floor this morning, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) implied the explosion that killed seven Marines at an ammunitions depot in Hawthorne, Nevada was due to the "cutting back in training and maintenance" in the sequester.

HARRY REID: As I indicated, it was quite a big explosion. We'll follow this news very closely. I will do whatever I can going forward to support the United States military and the families of the fallen Marines.

Mr. President, it's very important we continue training our military, so important. But one of the things in sequester is we cut back in training and maintenance. That's the way sequester was written. Now, the bill that's on the floor, we hope to pass today helps that a little bit. At least in the next six months, it allows the military some degree of ability to move things around a little bit. Flexibility, we call it, and that's good. But we have to be very vigilant. This sequester should go away. We have cut already huge amounts of money in deficit reduction. It's just not appropriate, Mr. President, that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary.

These men and women, our Marines were training there in Hawthorne. And with this sequester, it's going to cut back this stuff. I just hope everyone understands the sacrifices made by our military. They are significant, being away from home, away from families, away from their country.

He said himself that "we don't know exactly what happened..." a line conveniently missing this "false outrage" article. This is such a classic right-wing move.

"ARGH, they're standing on the backs of the dead, ARGH!!! Just like Newtown, ARGH!!! Just like Iraq ARGH, just like etc..."

I'm sure it was a coincidence that he happened to mention the dead Marines when discussing the sequester. I'm sure it's a coincidence that Feinstein mentions Sandy Hook when discussing the AWB. It couldn't possibly be examples of the games that shitty politicians play.

So they shouldn't acknowledge when tragedies happened, got it.

So they should always stoop to emotional appeals whenever someone dies in dramatic fashion and you have no problem with that, got it.

Then why is he bringing up the tragedy when talking about the sequester when the two have nothing in common?

He brought it up because it was a tragedy that happened in his state.

At the same time he's complaining about the sequester.

He very obviously intermingled the two issues.

Bringing up both in the same breath doesn't mean he's implying one had anything to do with the other. /True Fan
