Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quote of the day, “Harry Reid thinks job losses are awesome!” edition

Lest you think I’m being hard on the senile old coot, here is the video so you can see for yourself.

Transcript:  “Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good.”

You would expect at least the obligatory “one job loss is one job too many” or something like that, wouldn’t you?  Actually, he did…after his handlers realized what a buffoon he appeared to be:

Majority Leader Harry Reid returned to the Senate floor, saying his earlier remarks that “Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good,” were “mischaracterized by those seeking to score political points” and adding that the lost 36,000 jobs is “devastating news.” 

I can understand the faux pas.  I mean, if I had a nickel for every time I said “really good” instead of “devastating news”, I…um, wouldn’t have a nickel.

Fortunately for him (and to Mrs. Reid’s peril), this dude will likely be unemployed after November and can stop humiliating Nevada.

  3. The only way the loss of 36,000 jobs could be considered a good thing would be if it included every member of the White House, Congress, the Senate and the IRS!
