Harry Reid’s glue-sniffing shoulder angel — the same mysterious entity that told him Mitt Romney didn’t pay any taxes for a decade — has obviously fed the Nevada senator some new information.
Reid says it’s possible Russia has taken over Crimea and threatens the rest of Ukraine because of Senate Republicans:
Outlining the Senate’s agenda after a one-week recess, the Nevada Democrat said the first item would be the Ukraine bill that Republicans blocked just before lawmakers went on break. He urged Republicans to consider “how their obstruction affects United States’ national security as well as the people of Ukraine” and said their delay of any congressional action “sent a dangerous message to Russian leaders.”
“Since a few Republicans blocked these important sanctions last work period, Russian lawmakers voted to annex Crimea and Russian forces have taken over Ukrainian military bases,” Reid said. “It’s impossible to know whether events would have unfolded differently if the United States had responded to Russian aggression with a strong, unified voice.”
All that is just an invention of Reid to blame the real culprits — the Koch brothers:
Reid said Republicans blocked the bill to “protect the anonymity of their big-money donors” such as the Koch brothers, two of America’s wealthiest men who’ve strongly supported conservative causes. He was referring to an unsuccessful attempt by some Republicans to include an amendment to the bill halting new IRS regulations on groups claiming tax-exempt status.
Every time Harry Reid says “Koch brothers,” in his head he hears “cha CHING!”
If Reid were in the private sector he might have been institutionalized by now, but in progressive national politics, insanity is a feature, not a bug.
