Reid: Republicans are like the New York Jets, or something

posted at 11:58 am on December 6, 2012 by

Talk about taking the long road to a small payoff.  Harry Reid gave a rambling and somewhat confused start to the Senate this morning, all just to annoy Jazz Shaw that his Jets are becoming an analogy for poor leadership, or something:

I’ve been thinking how best to describe what’s going on here on Capitol Hill in the last couple of weeks. Every morning I get up, the first thing I read is the sports page. I’m disappointed in the sports page in ‘The Washington Post,’ it’s not nearly as good as it used to be. And the ‘New York Times’ is not good either. But I read them. There’s always some good news on the sports page. Then I go to the front page and get some of the bad news.

Maybe he looks for cowboy poetry, too.

But I follow sports no matter what it is: basketball, football, baseball — whatever it is. And I’ve watched very closely — it’s not one of my favorite teams, but it’s really fun to watch — and that’s the New York Jets.

The New York Jets, yes. New York Jets. Coach Ryan, he’s got a problem. He has three quarterbacks: Sanchez, he’s got Tim Tebow, he’s got a guy named McElroy. He can’t decide who their quarterback is going to be. That’s the same problem the Republicans have. Who is the quarterback, Mr. President? Who is the quarterback?

Wouldn’t the proper analogy in this case be to Ryan and not the QB? Ryan’s the one making the decisions and putting the strategy in place.  Sanchez is just the guy who gets it done … or doesn’t, actually.

I think Harry Reid needs to start producing budgets rather than reading the sports pages, and then maybe he’d be able to read some good news in the news sections for once.

Harry Reid, the second most dangerous man in America.

Reid made the comparison after blocking another attempt by McConnell to force a Senate vote on Obama’s deficit-reduction plan.

Coward!

Harry,

Why won’t you vote for Obama’s plan?

He can’t decide who their quarterback is going to be. That’s the same problem the Republicans have. Who is the quarterback, Mr. President? Who is the quarterback?

He’s asking who the quarterback is on the Republican side… by asking the President? Maybe he won’t let the budgets come to the floor because he thinks the President is still a Republican? We already know he’s crazy, maybe it’s more so than we realized.

Reid is one of the most despicable hateful evil people to ever be in Politics… His character is even worse than Obama…

Those who voted for Reid and Obama in Nevada do not care about unemployment because most of them are parasites living on the producers expense… The same goes for most of those who voted for Obama nationwide….

Didn’t the Jets win last week?
