Unbelievable.

But it plays to the LIV.

davidk on June 17, 2013 at 2:29 PM

Expected.

Ca97 on June 17, 2013 at 2:33 PM

I don’t think the word chutzpah is strong enough for this.

Bitter Clinger on June 17, 2013 at 2:49 PM

Surely this is a joke. Or someone hacked his Twitter feed. This can’t possibly be for real.

DrUrchin on June 17, 2013 at 2:51 PM

It certainly makes one hope there’s a hell.

SoRight on June 17, 2013 at 2:54 PM

Excuse me, but wasn’t the last budget Harry Ried even ALLOWED to be voted on voted down 100-0. Just saying.

Puhleeze

And yet the lsm will report this as big news

If you scramble the letters in Harry Reid, you can spell diarrhea. You do need one more A, but, close enough for government work!

birdwatcher on June 17, 2013 at 3:05 PM

Or pedophile.

davidk on June 17, 2013 at 3:25 PM

Harry Reid, please contact your office. Your irony meter is broken.

The Schaef on June 17, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Saturday March 23, 2013 at 5 am Harry Reid got his budegt to pass 50-49 with 4 dems voting against. That’s some mandate you got there Pedophile.

The Democrats want to bundle a major debt ceiling increase into the ‘compromise’ even though no one actually voted for one in the original bill. The goal is to NOT force a debt ceiling increast to require a 60 vote majority. IF this was not the Democrats goal, then they would have accepted the rule to prohibit such a change.

As usual, Harry Reid is trying to twist things into something they are not. Too bad for Harry that in this case, he is so twisted up in his shorts that most people cannot even understand his ramblings.

“There’s no need to have a Democratic budget in my opinion…It would be foolish for us to do a budget at this stage.” – Harry Reid, 5/20/11

RadClown on June 17, 2013 at 5:36 PM

Is this the same Senator Harry Reid who prevented the Democrat majority in the Senate from passing a budget during the first 3 YEARS of the Obama administration?

Sadly, Low-Information Voters will still blame Republicans for this.

Wake up America!

Wow. Brazen doesn’t begin to describe it. Like McDermott last week saying that tea parties deserved the abuse they got from the IRS. What can you even say?

juliesa on June 17, 2013 at 6:03 PM

The whispering he’s substitutes for actual vocalizations has finally affected his oxygen levels to the brain = unaccountable damage.

Budgets CAN’T be filibustered, right?

Pythagoras on June 17, 2013 at 10:14 PM

To a certain extent he’s right.

You have to remember the democrats don’t have a problem passing a budget. Its just the budget they want to pass is WAAAAAY bigger and involves big increases in taxes.

We have obstructed that.

Karmashock on June 18, 2013 at 1:07 AM

Wow. Just wow.

ZK on June 18, 2013 at 7:55 AM

Gee, I wonder what version of this story will be reported by the LSM?

RoadRunner on June 18, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Mentally Reidtarded.

Flange on June 18, 2013 at 9:03 AM

Wow, who knew the Dems are the minority party in the Senate? /

birdwatcher on June 17, 2013 at 3:05 PM

You have to drop the “y”, too, but in all honesty you don’t have to scramble anything to get diarrhea from Harry Reid. He gives it to us nonstop.

HiJack on June 18, 2013 at 10:57 AM

I don’t think the word chutzpah is strong enough for this.

Bitter Clinger on June 17, 2013 at 2:49 PM

Actually, this is precisely the situation that the word “chutzpah” is intended to be used in.

mintycrys on June 18, 2013 at 11:08 AM

Ol’ Harry is having fun. The Senate actually did pass a budget bill. See,

What is happening regarding the House/Senate conference?

Ira on June 18, 2013 at 11:44 AM

You positively can’t make this stuff up!

birdwatcher on June 17, 2013 at 3:05 PM

I think Harry Reid is himself a big enough “A” fill the spot.

psrch on June 18, 2013 at 2:04 PM

The sad thing is, that while this is absurd on its face to anyone with a three digit IQ, the Libs buy it. Obama constantly does things like this and it works. Just wait until this obvious farce is taken apart by network news and major newspapers. Hint: it won’t. That’s why idiots are so useful to the Left. They make up the majority of their base.

mintycrys on June 18, 2013 at 11:08 AM

No. The word “chutzpah” was intended to be used for something simple like a kid who murders his parents and then begs the court for mercy as an orphan. This is more like a kid murdering his parents, raping the dog, defecating on the judge’s bench, burning down the courthouse and then crying that he’s been denied his due-process right because the trial has been delayed a day. This is mega-ultra-chutzpah.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on June 18, 2013 at 10:20 PM

Democrats: “Stop us before we fail again!”

JimLennon on June 18, 2013 at 10:32 PM

Reid is a Wiley old fox. He knows if he throws out stuff like this the lowinfovohos won’t realize that it is his party responsible for this. Who will tell them, the Obama media?
