Harry Reid Scolds Press For Being Too Fair To Republicans [VIDEO]
Posted By Brendan Bordelon On 11:13 AM 05/08/2014

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reprimanded MSNBC’s Chuck Todd — and indeed, journalism in general — for being too interested in treating Republicans fairly, claiming reporters “won’t call things the way they actually exist.”

Todd sat down with the Nevada senator on Thursday for a wide-ranging discussion. At one point, the reporter asked Reid about the lack of bills or other activity emanating from the U.S. Senate.

Reid blamed recalcitrant Senate Republicans for holding up bills in committee. “You don’t believe Democrats play any role in this?” Todd asked. “It feels like a tit-for-tat game,” the reporter added, explaining that Democratic leadership has sometimes made it difficult for Republicans to amend bills important to them.

“You know, one of the problems with the press, modern journalism, is everything is a tit-for-tat,” Reid sneered. “You won’t call things the way they actually exist.”

“What has happened here is the Republicans have stopped everything from happening,” he declared. “So you can give me the tit-for-tat all you want, but the fact is we want to legislate. We want to legislate, we want to take votes.”

Let this old sumbitch talk. He's demented, with his Koch talk and his insistence that his not allowing any amendments is "legislating."

He's the best advertisement for GOP control of the Senate we've got.

Nope. I am just sadistic enough to want to see the look on his face when he loses the Speakership.

That's okay.    When I piss on his grave, I'll tell him. 


Lord willing, of course.    :whistle:
