Reid: Romney gives “used car salesmen a bad name,” but Joe “the bullets are aimed at you” Biden is a stand-up guy

posted at 8:41 pm on October 18, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Harry Reid hasn’t exactly kept it a secret that he’s not Mitt Romney’s biggest fan; he’s already publicly taken umbrage with Mitt Romney over his dastardly faux-to-hardcore conservative politics, his undue representation of their shared religion, and his phantom tax evasion. While I’m sure those were all, er, careful and constructive criticisms, Sen. Reid piled onto Romney’s character some more today while introducing Vice President Biden at a campaign rally in Las Vegas. Via The Hill:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on Thursday that Mitt Romney gives “used car salesman a bad name.” …

“Now, Joe Biden stands for everything that’s fair and honest — he’s a man of integrity. The man that’s leading the Republican ticket for president of the United States is giving used car salesmen a bad name,” Reid said in his remarks introducing Biden. “Think about it for a minute: Have you ever seen anyone that would do anything, say anything like Mitt Romney?

As a situation in which Mitt Romney runs the executive branch and Harry Reid leads the Senate is becoming increasingly feasible, you’ve gotta’ wonder what it will look like if the two end up having to work together. I don’t reckon the Democrats will be quite so opposed to gridlock if and when the tables turn and they’re suddenly the ones blocking Republican advances, especially on the big issues, but maybe Congress’s increasing unpopularity will bring the Democrats to the bargaining table to get some things done and save their images.

Meanwhile, that guy who “stands for everything that’s fair and honest,” that “man of integrity” that Reid was introducing at the rally? He then took to the stage and said this:

I get that he was just carrying on the metaphor and I don’t like being a nitpicker, but paired with his other ungenteel gaffes and his recent sneering-and-jeering debate performance, and I don’t know that I’d introduce our vice president as a representative of “everything that’s fair and honest.” Biden’s tendencies hyperbole, distortion, and inappropriateness need their own category of outrageous outrage.

How many times did Biden get caught cheating? I thought he even had problems getting his bar card due to his lack of moral turpitude.

Well if Joe Biden has the support of Harry Reid then I’m sold.

I hate Reid as much or more than The Blightbringer, if that is possible.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that Romney will be the President-elect in three weeks. Reid and Pelosi are both over 70 now and continually embarrass the democrat party. Will they willingly step aside or be voted out as well?

perroviejo on October 18, 2012 at 8:47 PM

I’m thinking that even Reid goes home at night, looks in the mirror, and breaks into uncontrollable shaking sobs knowing he has to defend a stone-cold lunatic like Joe.

Then again you have to have some sort of soul or at least a sense of morality to feel emotion and I’m not convinced Reid has either.

I keep hearing about the democrats defending 23 seats without losing 3 in a year Romeny wins the presidency. Excuse me how exactly is the Republican brand that bad if Romney wins and in Red states the Senate candidate loses across the board. Man folks there is being pessimistic and then there is defying logic. They don’t win ALL the swing races and keep the Senate if people are pi$$ed off at Obama and the Democrats and swinging to Romney his split ISN’T going to happen. Either they get out their vote or they don’t and in States ND,NE,VA,FL,MO,MT, OH,PA,WI,NM They don’t keep from losing 3 of these vs MA,NV,MA for us.

Socratease on October 18, 2012 at 8:53 PM

“Fair & Honest Joe” must have been on vacation during the Robert Bork hearings.

It is completely surreal to me that the moron horde buys Credit Card Joe (D – MBNA) who started in the US Senate at 30 years old before becoming VP and who in the Senate authored the 2005 Bankruptcy Reform Act which Fauxahauntus says burdens the middle class unfairly in favor of the credit card companies (Joe’s *real* constituents) as some “middle class warrior.”*

Was there ever a time when the Dems were smart enough to actually look at a person’s record, not just believe whatever the MSM/part leaders told them?

*I’m not necessarily agreeing with Warren’s take on the Bankruptcy Reform Act; I’m just pointing out how absurd it is that the same people who condemned the Act as a burden to the middle class now hail it’s author as a champion of the middle class.

Hate to tell you, Dingy Harry, but used car salesmen poll several slots better than members of Congress, and especially you. If there were ever a civil war again in our country, Reid would be the easiest to find, just look in the shallowist spider hole.

TXUS on October 18, 2012 at 8:57 PM

Good lord… Is Crazy Uncle Joe still mad about the debate.. Because it looks like in retrospect at least some of the Romney surge is due to that VP debate. It seems the Red Debate got Romney even and Budget actually got Romney a few points ahead. I’m really sorry that you didn’t get your Dan Quayle moment and came off looking crazy.

I know you think that was clever on Reid’s part, but see here’s the thing – his statement makes no sense because used car salesmen already have a bad name. What he should have said to to get his childish little dig in is something like ‘Romney makes used car salesmen look honest’ but see Reid couldn’t say that because then he might be insulting some of his friends who crawl through the grass with him.
