Reid: Hey, I don’t carry water for the President!

posted at 9:00 am on October 30, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Why does Harry Reid find himself on the brink of involuntary retirement? Pam Key at The Blaze finds a clue in this clip from an interview this week in which Reid asserts his independence, and still manages to screw up. The interviewer notes that the role of the leaders of the President’s party in Congress have the task of fronting his legislative agenda, and in the parlance of the Beltway, calls it “carry[ing] the water of the President,” to which Reid objects, insisting that he doesn’t carry water for the President. So who does he carry water for?  Oops:

So he carries the water for … the Establishment?  How much of a softball does the interviewer have to toss, Harry?  You’re supposed to say, “I carry the water for Nevada,” not the Senate.

But even if Reid denies it, he’s been carrying the water for Obama the past two years, and everyone in Nevada knows it.  He ran as a pro-life fiscal conservative when Nevadans first sent him to Washington, and what did he do when Obama came to office?  Reid personally put together a big-government entitlement that has a back-door clause to finance abortions with federal money.  The massive Porkulus bill that Reid personally pushed through the Senate has worked so well that his state managed to wrest the championship of unemployment from Michigan — no mean feat.

Actually, the last two years it looks less like Reid carries the water for Barack Obama and more that he carries the water for Nancy Pelosi.

Reid: Hey, I don’t carry water for the President!

Once again Harry stepped in himself.

Nobody genuinely thinks it’s water you are carrying, piss boy.

viking01 on October 30, 2010 at 9:06 AM

Harry Reid is beginning to look like he can’t hold his own water…. I have a clearer vision that Harry Reid will soon be seen shuffling out along some ol’ dusty Nevada highway in the Mojave, maybe near death valley—just wearing nothing but a bathrobe, a wife beater tshirt, a pair of depends, and some slippers. He’ll be muttering to himself unintelligbly and carrying a desert turtle that he’s petting like a kitten….

visions.

Ka-boom!

Pelosi is the one who’s REALLY been running this country into the ground. Remember, she was a major player in clearing the way for Obama in ’08; the agenda of the past two years has clearly been her agenda.

The question remains: Can Harry keep it close enough for the SEIU and ACORN’s bastard offspring to steal it?

either orr on October 30, 2010 at 9:08 AM

You people are cracking me up this morning; great comments.
If Reid has an once of brain power left in that thing on top of his shoulders, he had better be scared to death about the upcoming investigations and prosecutions. In fact, Pelosi had better be shakin in her witch boots also.

Keemo on October 30, 2010 at 9:10 AM

A friend posted a photo-shop of Reid on my FB showing Reid in an orange jump suit walking in line… Twas a thing of beauty.

He doesn’t carry water, he carries kool-aid. The sad part of this story is that his wife is gonna get such a beating after he is out of work.

Harry is right he isn’t the water boy. Gunga Din has that job sewed up. Gunga belongs to SEIU so Harry carries Obama’s jock strap for when Zero has friends over for basketball.

You’re supposed to say, “I carry the water for Nevada,” not the Senate. –Ed

I’d argue your point, given that he’s the Majority Leader of the Senate and has those obligations AS WELL AS obligations for his home state.

So,me thinks,that Harry Reid is acting like
the driver of the get away car,in a 12 Trillion
Dollar Bailout Stimulus Bank Robbery,and Obama
and crew hopped in the back seat,which,btw,Harry
drove into the ditch and got it stuck done real
good,while Obama and crew fled through the poli
tical fields,

so now,Harry is distancing himself from Hopey!!

I remember when nobody wanted Bill Clinton around
during campaigning,but lordy,the DNC is treating
Obama like a political plague!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obama is now Nixon, and beyond, and Reid enabled him.

Funny.
I had a similar vision of Pelosi last night and was

several fingers of Makers Mark too slow to respond.

It was Nancy with a face droopy as her saggy bosom,

pushing a bag lady shopping cart through the Tenderloin

district, a joint hanging out her mouth and a needle stuck

in one arm. She was wearing an old musty coat over a

torn miniskirt and threadbare knee highs on ratty

birkenstock sandals.

It was a horrible experience and I had to go lay down.

Then I woke up and realized it was just a dream.

There are illegal aliens in our labor organizations.

EXACTLY. As if Unions have the well being of their members at heart — no, only a pyramid scheme.

If only citizens in labor recognized their unions as they have always been, global communist organizations. Given that mining has always born the brunt of union neglect, yet being the only industry that deserves a union to protect the workers, Nevadans should know better than to be so gullible. Coming from Searchlight, son of a broken alcoholic miner, Harry Reid feels ENTITLED to abuse everyone, particularly miners.

This entire Obama thing has really educated Americans as to just how corrupt and evil unions have become. This will not end well for unions and their attempt to bully their way into power over all.

The best way to handle any visits from union thugs is to tell them the freight you ordered is running late, the build quality on the car in the driveway sucks, that you were a mafia informant before that wonderful witness protection program and ask why they aren’t busy out striking somewhere.

President Barack Obama appeared at a political event for Latinos — including, legal and illegal aliens — and said:

But if Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us. If they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder.

But the dirty little secret is there exists an enormous amount of proof that illegal aliens are being registered to vote and they’re being registered as Democrats. And our political leaders know it.

…a study released by the conservative think-tank the Heritage Foundation provides proof that illegal aliens and immigrants with green cards are committing rampant voter fraud in the United States.

Harry Reid carries THAT voter fraud water for Obama.
