U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) (R) and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) speak about the war in Iraq on Capitol Hill in Washington, April 18, 2007.

“War in Iraq lost”: US Democrat leader

The war in Iraq “is lost” and a US troop surge is failing to bring peace to the country, the leader of the Democratic majority in the US Congress, Harry Reid, said Thursday.

“I believe … that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week,” Reid said, on the same day US President George W. Bush was giving a speech at an Ohio town hall meeting defending the war on terror.

First, Senator Reid is WRONG.

Second, then Senator, you will support cutting off the fundng for the troops in Iraq in order to bring them home.

Right?

Up or down vote, Senator?

Update:

From Senator Mitch McConnell, GOP Minority Leader of the U.S. Senate:

“I can’t begin to imagine how our troops in the field, who are risking their lives every day, are going to react when they get back to base and hear that the Democrat leader in the United States Senate has declared the war is lost.”

Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., leaves George Washington University Hospital in Washington, after visiting with Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., who is recovering from brain surgery, Saturday, Dec. 16, 2006.

Looks to Flap that Harry Reid, incoming Senate Majority Leader is already on vacation. But, he is still counting votes. Is this guy a MORON or what?
AP: Reid to miss Ford funeral

Incoming Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will miss the state funeral for former President Gerald Ford at the Capitol Rotunda on Saturday night, opting instead to lead a delegation to South America with an expected stop at the Machu Picchu Inca ruins.

Reid, D-Nev., left Wednesday afternoon from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland with a bipartisan group of five other senators, including Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the incoming assistant majority leader, for what has been described as a weeklong visit to Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru.

The highlight of the trip is said to be separate meetings with the presidents of the three nations, with the last one scheduled in Peru on Tuesday morning.

“They would be difficult to cancel,” Reid spokesman Jim Manley said via mobile phone as the congressional delegation took off in a U.S. military plane.

This is BULL and a JUNKET.

And shows extreme disrespect to the Ford family, the United States Senate and the American Presidency.

Other senators making the trip are Kent Conrad, D-N.D., Judd Gregg, R-N.H., Robert Bennett, R-Utah, and Ken Salazar, D-Colo.

Flap agrees with Hugh Hewitt: TURN THE PLANE AROUND.

Maybe Senators Reid and Durbin are going over their plan for the Iraq War as well:

Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., speaks to reporters following a news conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2006. Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn’t personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.

Washington Post: Mr. Reid’s Nondisclosure

Philadelphia Inquirer: Practice what you preach

A lucrative land deal benefiting U.S. Senate minority leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) deserves full scrutiny by the Senate ethics committee.

In 1998, Reid purchased undeveloped residential property on the outskirts of Las Vegas for $400,000. He bought one lot outright, and a second lot with a partner, Jay Brown. In 2001, Reid sold the land for the same price to a corporation created by Brown. Reid retained an ownership stake in the corporation and continued to pay taxes on the property. There was no written agreement; Brown told the Associated Press that the two had been friends for 35 years and didn’t need one.

Was Patrick Lane Development In Rory Reid’s District?

With the Mark Foley Sex Scandal poised to sink the GOP and Democrat corruption of which the Harry Reid and William Jefferson Scandals come to immediate mind, isn’t it time to rethink TERM LIMITS for Congress and the United States Senate?
