Green Room

Harry Reid is in major denial

posted at 3:07 pm on April 6, 2010 by

Harry Reid recently had an interview with Greta van Susteren… and boy, is he in denial.

VAN SUSTEREN: Why do you think that there was such — and I don’t want to use a term that overstates it, but there were an awful lot of people who didn’t like it. More people were unhappy, I think, with the bill, the health care bill, than were happy with it. Why do you think that?

SEN. HARRY REID, D-NEV, SENATE MAJORITY LEADER: Because the loud minority made a lot of noise. Now that the legislation passed, it is amazing how much different people attitude is. I mean traveling on an airplane people are so nice to me. We have people — it wasn’t that way before.

… So everybody acknowledges with rare exception that what we did was terrific, and if there are some problems in out years we’ll be happy to look at them.

Rare exception?? Really, Harry Reid?

Let’s just take a look at the numbers, shall we?

According to Rasmussen, 54% of Americans are in favor of repeal. The tea parties are more popular than Obama is. And Harry Reid is only at 39% against three Republican opponents.

Gallup shows similar numbers. Their polling shows a majority in opposition to the bill.

CBS News likewise found that the majority of Americans are against the health care bill.

And in Nevada? A full 62% of Nevadans if most incumbents up for reelection lost, and 62% also want Obamacare repealed. This is higher than the national rate.

And Harry Reid wants to make this out to be a “rare exception”?

You’re living in a dream world, buddy. Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to this health care bill and always were. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid just didn’t want to listen because they had an agenda to push. This now means they have to do one more thing: start preparing to find a new job.

Harry is too busy with his real estate deals to worry about future elections.

The coolest thing to possibly see would be Harry in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles…waiting for a kidney transplant.
