Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

UPDATED: Reid: Can you believe that the House is taking the weekend off?

UPDATES BELOW.

Says the guy whose chamber hasn’t produced a budget resolution in 800+ days?  Seriously?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized the House of Representatives for taking the weekend off, saying it painted a “very bad picture” for debt negotiations.

“Let me get this off my chest,” he said on the Senate floor Thursday morning. “I just heard there is an announcement in the House of Representatives that they are taking the weekend off.”

“I think this is a very bad picture to have the House out this weekend when we have to likely wait for them to send us something, because as I understand the negotiations taking place deal with revenues which constitutionally have to start in the House,” said Reid.

“I think it is just untoward,” continued Reid. “That’s the kindest work I can say… What a bad picture.”

So Reid hasn’t done his d#mned job in a turtle’s age, and Boehner is the slacker?  I guess it’s lost on Reid that the House has sent two bills to the Senate to address the fiscal crisis: The Ryan plan and the Cut, Cap, and Balance Plan.  The former was voted down, and the latter will likely be voted down later today (not yet as of the time of this writing).  The House has sent not one, but two proposals, and the Senate has proposed nothing…and the House is derelict in its duties?

Thanks, NV, for sending this senile old jack#ss back to the Senate.

UPDATE (7/22/2011 – 11:56 AM ET): Oh, boy, this gets even richer!  Reid complained that the House (which, I remind you, passed two bills dealing with this) is adjourning for the weekend, rather than sticking around in the rare event that a debt deal is reached.  And now Reid’s chamber (for those of you on the left, that would be the Senate) has just taken off for the weekend!  Hey, Harry: does your Senate mailing it in mean that you and your colleagues are “just untoward”? 😆

  2. Nothing surprising here. The leftist double standard at play. He and his chamber has not done shit in over 800 days, except to try and figure out new ways to screw us, and they think they deserve a weekend off to reflect on their dereliction of duty. This guy and his cohorts need to be gone in 2012.
