Video: Petraeus is a genius, says moron who dumped on him repeatedly

posted at 4:48 pm on January 5, 2009 by Allahpundit

This isn’t even the most shameless thing he said yesterday on MTP. That distinction goes to his praise for John McCain, whom he described during the campaign as a borderline lunatic whose temper left him unfit to serve as president. Direct quote from August: “I can’t stand John McCain.” Direct quote from yesterday: “He’s my friend.” Nuance.

The bit that’s getting attention is his squirming over having merrily pronounced the surge a failure and the war lost in two years ago. When asked if he still feels that way, his defense is to hide behind Petraeus: All he meant is that the war wasn’t winnable with military power alone, which is no different really from anything Petraeus has said, and Petraeus of course is a “genius” so how about getting off Reid’s back already? The follow-ups Gregory didn’t ask: If Petraeus is such a genius, why did Reid vow not to believe him if he reported progress at his 2007 Senate hearing? Why did he allegedly call Petraeus incompetent a few months later? Why was he one of only 25 Senators to vote against the resolution condemning MoveOn for the “Betray Us” ad? Why was he still declaring the surge a failure as late as December 2007, and even to this day insists that Iraq is in a state of civil war? The answer to all these questions is that, for Reid, the facts on the ground are always determined by political expedience. That’s why he was able to insist four months ago, with Obama pushing hard on the stump for a renewed commitment to Afghanistan, that the country is in “pretty good shape” when everyone but everyone on both sides knows better.

Note too how he tries to take credit for the surge at the beginning by emphasizing the Democrats’ role in forcing a change of direction in Iraq policy. Not the first time we’ve heard that argument advanced. The left demanded that Bush withdraw; Bush responded by doubling down instead and ordering the surge. Voila — a change of direction in policy. Thanks, Harry!

Does anybody have the sense that Reid is connected to this world?

highhopes on January 5, 2009 at 4:54 PM

Ah, the Gambino errand boy on TV.

What a worthless, aboslute piece of garbage, traitor.

If the justice system functioned properly in this country, the jackass Harry Reid would be in chains in Leavenworth, on trial for his life, that is if he really isn’t the undead.

Democrats should wear bags over their heads for having the WORST SENATE MAJORITY LEADER IN AMERICAN HISTORY.

Does anything besides shit ever come out of the mouth of that pathetic wheezing fossil?

Cicero43 on January 5, 2009 at 4:55 PM

quite frankly he should have been tried for treason a long time ago. And if he had and had been found guilty hopefully he’d be swinging from the gallows by now.
this man by his words alone probably costs us several lives in the wars we are fighting.
damn him.

Reid girded his loins and it felt good.

lorien1973 on January 5, 2009 at 4:56 PM

This guy’s unbelievable. To misquote Harry Truman: “Richard NixonHarry Reid is a no good, lying bastard. He can lie out of both sides of his mouth at the same time, and if he ever caught himself telling the truth, he’d lie just to keep his hand in.

Matt Helm on January 5, 2009 at 4:58 PM

Reid? who? no clue who this whiny, skinny, nasaly speaking man is. He is a what? Hmm he has a re-election coming up when?

Hopefully Reid will go the way of Daschle: 2nd Senate majority leader evah voted out of office.

I guess Bambi didn’t get the memo re: Daschle’s unpopularity.

Oh isn’t that sweet! You still consider Gregory a journalist! David Gregory has been an agent of the DNC for years and his hatred of the Bush administration proves he is no Tim Russert despite the way NBC is trying to make that connection. MTP is nothing more than the the George Soros hour with an individual like Gregory hosting.

Well, his pandering works, you can bet his followers are satisfied and convinced Reid is right…we may laugh at his foolishness, but to the left it all makes sense.

Incumbency. The system (put into place by the ins) favors incumbents. It took three years of national ridicule and a run-off for New Orleans to get rid of a Congressman who had marked FBI money in his freezer. Jack Murtha is still standing beside being a complete traitor to this nation. Once in the club, the odds are you can stay as long as you want.

Gosh…and to think that we all laughed at NBC for making that dickeater the anchor of the formerly legitimate news show Meet the Press. What were we thinking?

Jaibones on January 5, 2009 at 5:16 PM

Morons of the State of Nevade…………you know what to do in 2010. If we could get Daschle out, there is absolutely no friggin’ reason why Dingy Harry should stay in office.

This is an example of what elements look like before they become a human being. The little sleaze is a mistake of nature and the people who continue to elect him should try to get an education when they take a break from asking:

Yes Nevada – if you want the economy to improve so we will come back and lose in Lost Wages then you must boot out Scary Harry. The longer you keep voting for dems the longer the depression will be. And it was because of Bush and McCain that the surged worked. The generals did not want to go along but Bush kicked butt and the rest is history. I cannot wait to read GW’s book.

This is classic Harry Reid. You gotta love him for the way he can be a shameless liar one minute and tell the truth when it suits him later. All that with a straight face.

theguardianii on January 5, 2009 at 4:56 PM

The last election represented the collapse of the American system, as it has existed in the post-Eisenhower era. It was engineered by an angry left that entered a state of rebellion after the 2000 elections, pushed by the radicals who had been trying to bring the system down since the 60s. They did it by exploiting the fundamental sense of self-doubt that plagues every democracy – the nagging feeling that a democratic nation has no right to defend itself. Many of the elites believe a truly just and righteous democracy couldn’t possibly have enemies – I have no doubt Barack Obama believes this – and therefore conclude that if we have enemies, we must not be truly just and righteous.

A democracy with any sense of self-respect would never tolerate someone like Harry Reid. By confronting the electorate with one insane outrage after another, people like Reid and Murtha helped to push the American citizenry into a kind of emotional collapse. It’s like a national case of battered wife syndrome: too much of the electorate began to think it deserved the rotten treatment it was getting from the Reid/Pelosi Democrats, because if we were a truly righteous and strong nation, those clowns would be in jail. Only a nation with serious self-esteem issues would vote to give Barney Frank even *more* control over the public treasury, or hand over supreme power to people that treat the directorship of the CIA as an entry-level position, or Senate seats as family heirlooms.

Harry Reid isn’t fit to utter the name David Petraeus without having a chainsaw shoved up his ass at full throttle.

And I say that with all due respect to the Senator, which is to say none at all.

Is it mathematically possible for Congress to have a negative approval rating?

turfmann on January 5, 2009 at 6:41 PM

Why was he still declaring the surge a failure as late as December 2007, and even to this day insists that Iraq is in a state of civil war? The answer to all these questions is that, for Reid, the facts on the ground are always determined by political expedience. That’s why he was able to insist four months ago, with Obama pushing hard on the stump for a renewed commitment to Afghanistan, that the country is in “pretty good shape” when everyone but everyone on both sides knows better.

Red State State of Mind on January 5, 2009 at 9:24 PM

Dingbat Reid sucks out loud. I wonder if he even realizes that fact.

Geronimo on January 5, 2009 at 9:26 PM

What a lying weasel. No, I don’t think he’s delusional, I think he really is that conniving and scheming and thinks he’s good enough at it that people buy his BS. Notice how the press never mentions that congressional approval ratings are lower than Bush’s.

One other bit of evidence regarding how slimy this weasel is: When he pushed through that “hush Rush” letter that got sent to Rush’s broadcasting syndicate and after Rush auctioned it off for a significant amount of money for the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation, this piece of garbage made a statement to the effect that he was really pleased with how much money this letter was going to bring and trying to take credit for engineering the whole thing. A transcript of what Reid said:

“When I spoke to Mark May, he and I thought this probably wouldn’t make much money, a letter, written by Democrat Senators, complaining about something. This morning, the bid is more than two million for this. We’ve watched it during the week. It keeps going up, and up, and up. There’s only a little bit of time left on it, but it certainly is going to be more than two million. Never did we think that this letter would bring money of this nature,” said Senator Reid. “And for the cause, Madam President, it’s extremely good. Now everybody knows that Rush Limbaugh and I don’t agree on everything in life. Maybe that’s kind of an understatement. But, without qualification, Mark May, the owner of the network that has Rush Limbaugh, their auction is going to be something that raises money for a worthwhile cause. I don’t know what we could do more important than helping to ensure that children of our fallen soldiers and police officers who have fallen in the line of duty have the opportunity for their children to have a good education.”

So this evil senator, who tried to use the coercion of the US Senate to shut down a private citizen and then was rebuffed by that private citizen and publicly humiliated by having his Orwellian missive auctioned off for a charitable cause then tries to garner credit for the good results of his police-state like tactics.

Nevada, if you don’t oust this worm in the next election, you have no soul.

AZfederalist on January 5, 2009 at 9:31 PM

What amazed me during the Presidential Campaign of ’08 was how the sky would fall in if Mitt Romney, a Mormon,were to be elected President. Yet the lefty moonbats have no problem with a Mormon(I don’t either)as the Senate Majority leader. The way the modern leftists operate is simply shameful, hypocritical, and often criminal. Wow. And Harry Reid, this guy should have been arrested for treason when he declared his own country lost a war it was still fighting. That I call nothing short of opportunist scum..

adamsmith on January 5, 2009 at 9:50 PM

adamsmith

I’m guessing that there was no outcry about Reid being Mormon because (I’m guessing here, but real mormons may have a better handle on this) Reid is probably as good a mormon as Ted Kennedy is a good Catholic

AZfederalist on January 5, 2009 at 9:58 PM

I agree with Red State State of Mind with that comment/opinion/bit of sage advice.

That was the one thing about Bush and his administration. The lefties would outright lie about Bush, slandered him more like. The lie was repeated enough of Bush’s criminality with calls for impeachment from before 9/11, that the entire far left denigrated a sitting U.S. President for his entire 8 year term. They never gave Bush a chance to be a “Uniter”, as they weren’t having any compromise. Made me very angry that Bush didn’t come out on TV weekly in order to quell the lies against him, and the perpetrators who were acting in self interest and loyalty to their party over the best interests of their own country.

Baxter Greene on January 6, 2009 at 1:43 AM

I wonder how Democrats would react if Republicans aped their tactics and rhetoric in EVERY respect for the coming four years. Just ripped off the playbooks of Reid, Pelosi, Frank, Dodd, Leahy, Wexler, Waters, Waxman, Emmanuel, Kerry, Boxer…in every infernal detail. Every ethical breach. Every circle-the-wagons-around-the-dirtbag stand. Every casual, everyone-thinks-like-us thought about the other side, no matter how unseemly or, you know, a bald-faced lie.

Problem is, most of the Republicans we might have counted on have been either been convicted, forced to resign, or unsupported in their reelection bid. What’s left? “mavericks” and mealy-mouths, with a bare handful of honest-to-goodness honorable men and women.

Pathetic. We deserve the government we get…and apparently what we deserve is a banana republic in pinstripes.

sulla on January 6, 2009 at 1:56 AM

not that I’m advocating we act like them; I don’t have the stomach for the cesspool they wallow in.

Whatever Obama may be, I don’t envy the man for having the Democrats as the party he sort-of heads. (don’t let Harry or Howie hear that.) If he can get some of his old community organizer buddies together to bust some lefty kneecaps…

well, then he’d be a hipper Stalin.

N4646W on January 6, 2009 at 3:08 AM

I do believe this, and will not apologize for doing so.

There is indeed a circle of hell reserved for morally bankrupt cowards like Harry Reid.

My cousin got shot in the head by Iranians, while trying to improve the lives of Iraqis in Karbala, and Harry Reid pisses on him and every soldier, and then DARES to claim political credit when they succeed in spite of him.

To quote Geraldo Rivera, I’d spit on Harry Reid if I ever saw him.
