Conservatives hate Harry Reid. No, wait…Conservative HATE Harry Reid. They hate him with the kind of passion normally reserved for brown, gay people who think that Earth predates trees. They hate him more than Kenyan socialists and Nancy Pelosi COMBINED. Not only for calling out the Kochs as exactly what they are, but for having the nerve to denigrate their hero, welfare cowboy Cliven Bundy. But, it’s good to be hated by evil people — shows which side you stand on.
Earlier today on the Senate floor, Reid codified this exact position in regard to one Dick Cheney — the war profiteer and architect of one of America’s longest-running conflicts, who (along with Karl Rove) has recently begun a campaign of opinion on why Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing in Iraq, in regard to ISIS and troop deployments.
“If there is one thing we can all agree on here, it’s that we should not be taking advice on Iraq from Dick Cheney.
To be on the wrong side of Dick Cheney is to be on the right side of history. To the architects of the Iraq War who are now so eager to offer their expert analysis, I say: ‘Thanks, but no thanks.’ Unfortunately, we already tried it your way and it was the biggest foreign policy blunder in United States history.
President Obama and his military advisors are considering their options to address ISIS – but putting combat troops back into Iraq is not and should not be one of them.”
He later Tweeted this:
As recently (and oh, so gleefully) reported by the Daily Caller, Harry Reid’s “unfavorable” poll numbers are actually higher than the Koch brothers he crusades against. According to a George Washington University poll:
- Harry Reid: 24 percent favorable view, 25 percent never heard of him, 35 percent unfavorable view.
- The Koch Brothers: 12 percent favorable view, 52 percent never heard of them, 25 percent unfavorable.
Let’s end this on a little breakdown of those numbers…
- That 35 percent is almost exactly the same percentage of self-described “conservatives” in America. Read — “neo-cons” and “Teabaggers“
- About half of Americans have never heard of the Kochs…you can probably guess which half.
- Of the people who have heard of him, about 46 percent of people hate Harry Reid. Of the people who have heard of them, 52 percent hate the Koch Brothers.
It’s good to be hated by evil people…especially Dick Cheney and the Koch Brothers.
And it’s good to hate Dick Cheney.
