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.

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.

Right wing move? I first heard this reported on MSNBC last night. Miklazewski(sp?) clearly stated that Reid implied the two were related.

Yes, the right has done this multiple times recently. Benghazi, Newtown, and the political cartoon involving Chris Kyle. It's a typical M.O. for the right to accuse the left of being anti-military and unpatriotic.

This is funny, because what Reid is arguing for is pro-military. If the right doesn't like what he's saying, that non-discretionary cuts to the military are a bad thing, then argue against that rather that pulling this "he's disrespecting the deceased" card. If people want to call him an idiot for comparing this accident to what can happen as deeper cuts to training and maintenance go forward, fine do it.

When Romney decided to politicize Benghazi right after it happened, people didn't accuse him of disrespecting the dead, they accused him of being an idiot for talking about something he was uninformed about. The "disrespecting the dead" card was again dealt to Obama and the left.

Right, he just sandwiched sequester talk in between two statements about the explosion. But there was no intent to try and portray them as linked.

It's more interesting that the Marine Corp. is denying the sequester had anything to do with the accident. Just like the Secret Service supposedly denied The Blameless One's claim that they were responsible for closing the White House to tours.

And conveniently moved into the sequester, training and the lack of the latter due to the former. How con-VEEEEEEEN-iant!

Not saying the left doesn't use political tactics, but I am calling out the right on this for what it is, a tactic. If you don't see it that way, then I wonder who's wearing the blinders...
