Sen. Majority Leader Reid (D-NV).

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s thoughts on the automotive industry bailouts?

Answer: He believes that Ford, which refused to take government bailout money, only survived because of the government bailout.

🙄 Hmm… How does that one work? Simple: It doesn’t.

In reality (not Harry Reid’s liberal dream-world), Ford did have the chance to accept government bailout money, but chose not to. Isn’t it interesting that the only one of the Big Three who didn’t accept government money is doing the best?

What would have happened if none of them accepted those taxpayer bailout dollars? The Blog Prof believes that the government’s interference in the process did more harm than good:

Without the bailouts, GM and Chrysler could have gone through bankruptcy restructuring without the 800-lb government gorilla on their backs. As it is, the bankruptcy restructuring occurred in a way to help Obama’s primary constituency – unions – rather than the long-term health of the companies. We are yet to see whether the restructuring will work, but if it does, it will be despite the government takeover, not because of it. There are in fact plenty of good people still working for the autos. I know because some of them have been my best engineering students.

And Ed Morrissey – from Hot Air – sums it up:

And don’t forget that we spent over $60 billion on those bailouts just to see the companies go into bankruptcy anyway.  A proper bankruptcy would have maintained order in capital markets and reallocated resources rationally without the $62 billion in taxpayer money that we had to borrow for the bailout.  As we service that debt, it will come out of the pockets of Americans who might otherwise have spent it on actual growth-producing activities — like buying cars.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)?

Answer: Apparently he thinks that opponents of Obama’s health-care reform are like supporters of slavery.


You heard it correct. Sen. Reid (D-NV) actually compared Republicans who oppose Obama’s health-care reform to those who tried to hang on to the institution of slavery over a century ago. Interestingly enough, those individuals were (for the most part) Democrats (haha):

The Nevada Democrat, in a sweeping set of accusations on the Senate floor, also compared health care foes to those who opposed women’s suffrage and the civil rights movement — even though it was Sen. Strom Thurmond, then a Democrat, who unsuccessfully tried to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and it was Republicans who led the charge against slavery.

Now usually I try to stay nice on my blog, but what was this idiot actually trying to accomplish politically with these statements? Are Democrats TRYING to make it easier for Republicans to win in the 2010 elections? Seriously… If you don’t believe the Senate Majority Leader uttered these words, check it out below:

Oh goody! Once again, the liberals pull out the infamous race card. Unfortunately for them, the polls aren’t showing very favorable numbers for the Democrat’s health-care reform. Hmm… This must mean most of America is racist! Haha:
