Harry Reid says he sympathizes with John Boehner

December 4, 2012

 Earlier today Harry Reid stated that he sympathized with John Boehner for having to deal with fiscal conservatives in the House. This is what he had to say:

I sympathize with John Boehner,” Reid said. “The tea party has a firm grip on the Republican Party. … This vocal minority contingent exerts tremendous influence over him and Republicans in the House and in the Senate.

  And with John Boehner’s move yesterday to strip fiscally conservative Republicans from committee positions it appears that he and Harry Reid are on the same page. They have the same enemy and he is us.

    I am on the same page today. Getting rid of Allen West must have tickled him pink. Boehner needs to go.

      I am sure it did, I think he would rather have lost the House then to have kept a majority with the Tea Party.

    Harry Reid’s acolyte will be going nowhere. This simpleton with no legislative record of note has learned the Washington power game well. By removing these four fiscall conservatives from their committee posts Boner had sent a clear message to the other 240 republicans: Job #1 is toe the line or suffer the consequences. This mental midget is on the road to becoming a Nancy Pelosi clone. This is More support for the contention that the Republican Party may be on its way to becoming an appendage of the Democrat Party.

      Yep, this was a clear signal to the others and now the Republicans are floating an increase in the gas tax.

    Reid is just trying to paint the GOP as beholden to those “extremist” Tea Party supporters. Boehner is starting to believe him, which is a bad sign.

    Bad things to follow for the Republicans…

      Is Boehner starting to believe him, or is this something he has felt all along and now is he now using the election loss to promote what he believed all along?

    I am about tired of ALL of them, they are playing “politics” with OUR lives.
