Harry Reid Watch: Killing Las Vegas

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) proclaims that the hidden cost of coal and oil is that they make us sick.
As Flap heads back to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker, the Las Vegas Journal excoriates their Senior Senator for his remarks above on Gobal Warming.

Nevada’s own Harry Reid has become a YouTube sensation for continually combining his gloomy disposition with rhetoric that makes even his most partisan supporters cringe.

His latest hilarious monologue came a few days ago on the Fox Business channel when, in trying to defend the exorbitant costs (and federal subsidies) of renewable power, he asserted that money is overrated in debating the country’s energy policy.

“Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It’s global warming. It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world,” Sen. Reid blurted out between pregnant pauses. “We’ve got to stop using fossil fuels.”

Yes, the resources that not only drive the world’s economy and rising standard of living, but make life and prosperity possible in his political base of Las Vegas, are “ruining our country” and “ruining our world.”

And, the Journal points out the hypocrisy of Reid whose political base of support in Nevada is dependent upon fossil fuel to transport visitors to “Sin City” and to fuel the electricity generators for air conditioning systems that keep Las Vegas bearable in 115 degree summers.

Last year the U.S. Senate Majority Leader said the Iraq War was lost. He was wrong then as he is now – unless he proposes giving Las Vegas back to the desert?

Does Team Obama change his website THAT fast?

Seriously, Obama has made MORE REAL CHANGE in his policy positions the past few weeks since he beat Hillary Clinton. The Democrats understand Obama MUST move to the center from his radical left positions and flip flopping be damned.

As his Pastor Jeremiah Wright said – Obama is just another politician.

In blogging matters today, Flap, will be flying this afternoon from Indianapolis to Denver (Southwest Airlines) and then driving Tuesday to Las Vegas for day 2 of the World Series of Poker.
