Harry Reid is not well. I don’t think it’s appropriate to criticize people who are mentally ill, but in Reid’s case, he’s in Congress and he holds a public office that bears the responsibility for much that affects the safety and well-being of citizens and residents of this country (as also, worldwide, given his position in Congress).
Thus, I do not hesitate to call Harry Reid a mentally imbalanced, unwell person after reading what I’ve read today about and from Reid, as to his exceptionally irrational use of Congress to lambast radio commentor Rush Limbaugh and in that, in doing so, reveals about himself — Reid does — that his perceptions and state of mental function are of question.
To summarize, Liberal/Democrat-Party-owner, so they allege, MoveOn.org publishes a disgusting, deceitful, deranged and counter-national (that means, “treasonous”) ad labeling General Petraeus as having “betrayed” them. General Petraeus is an extremely highly regarded, well respected man of military service record who is literally above reproach in his morals, ethics and character, as also his professional history of accomplishments.
MoveOn resents the “politics” — so their troubled perceptions tell them — of the military effort the U.S. is leading in the Middle East, with General Petraeus in command of the multi-national military forces in Iraq. So, MoveOn baselessly maligns General Patraeus instead; that is, they attack the man. And many among the Liberal media with no military expertise nor experience pile-on. Their incentives appear to be to — as Limbaugh says — “hate the U.S.A” (audio file).
Their ad was reckless, senseless, outrageous in the most offensive way, something you might expect woefully to find scrawled on an alley wall or wherever else the deplorable waste themselves and malign others through baseless accusations — just plain old lies, the MoveOn ad was, but it serves the Liberal lowest expectations and represents that organization well as a group of deplorably disgusting lack of standards.
Enter Rush Limbaugh, whose opinion of MoveOn, like mine and like many other citizens, is equally as bleak as to what MoveOn has done. Many Republicans, many Conservatives, asked Congress to officially condemn the MoveOn ad — no Democrats would do so.
Thus, by Congress not taking official action against the wretched organization (from whence the Democrats reap a lot of money) , regardless of what individual Democrats may hem and haw about them otherwise, by lack of offical sanction, Congress (with Harry Reid as Majority Whip in the Senate, Nancy Pelosi as Majority Whip in the House, both of whom are Democrats) is refusing sanction and thus lending support to the deplorable organization and their deplorable, disgusting methods.
These Democrats do not represent the majority of U.S.citizens and voters. They represent their Liberal voters, but not the country. They’re attempting to govern from a position that sits like an island outside our country, demanding that the country fall under their demands but that’s about the same thing that Fidel Castro has been doing for decades now, and that’s never worked for him, either, to any majority among Cubans, many of whom are literally dying to escape his gaw.
So, again, enter Rush Limbaugh with his ongoing and related comments — about Democrats, about the “antiwar” Moveon Liberals among them (which includes more than a few unreliable reports from more than a few proven to be unreliable in Congress, like John Murtha, John Kerry, for starters) — no different than the average Conservative nationwide, I add, about this dreadful situation, but Limbaugh waxes on into far more detail on his many radio broadcasts and uses a lot of illustrative language when presenting his opinions.
Among a reference he used — “phony soldiers” — some media misreported the context and then the unreliable mind of Harry Reid grabbed onto the misreported context and made his foolish display in Congress.
Read more about the current state of that remark and the complicity by media that Harry Reid apparently lacks capacity to comprehend:
So, then, back to Harry Reid’s theatre on the floor of Congress to lambast and lie about Rush Limbaugh, to misquote him and assign to him a false scenario as to statements he’s not made (made by someone else) and then to present a letter Reid’s prepared to be sent to the head of Clear Channel, which owns the network on which Limbaugh broadcasts.
Harry Reid is mentally unfit and he’s particularly not fit for the position of Majority Whip, nor of Senator — from anywhere. There is mental illness and then there is mental illness and whatever the diagnosis, specifically, is as to Reid’s personality, he’s displaying symptoms of a person who is imbalanced. In Congress, that’s dangerous – it puts everyone at risk, and especially our service personnel overseas, it emboldens our enemies, it compromises our national security overall.
Then from Limbaugh, again, there’s this:
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, in the last half hour, Harry Reid took to the floor of the Senate and proceeded to spend five-to-seven minutes denouncing me, spreading the smear that started last week on this phony soldiers business. He has prepared a letter to be sent to the CEO of the company that syndicates this program, and that letter he asked as many senators as possible to sign, offering them the opportunity to demand of my syndicator that I be condemned for something that I did not say, which Harry Reid knows I did not say. The House of Representatives, I have just learned, is going to introduce a resolution this afternoon along the lines of the MoveOn.org resolution that was introduced last week, tit-for-tat, they want a vote in the House to condemn me, a private citizen, for something I did not say. These people have had three, four days now to learn the truth about this, and they no doubt know the truth, which doesn’t matter. What they are trying to do is flood a false story into the Drive-By Media and have that survive and suffice as the evidence and as the story of what I said when it wasn’t.
This is not just the anatomy of a smear. There’s much more going on with this than just smearing me. There is an attempt, I think, as they have done throughout my career, to discredit me. No matter how many signatures they get on their letter in the Senate, no matter how many votes they get on their resolution in the House, the idea was offered, and so far no Republicans have spoken up, but it’s early. After Harry Reid finished reading his letter and then castigating and excoriating me for something I didn’t say and didn’t do, he then went to normal business and Chuck Grassley is up there talking about some piece of Ted Kennedy legislation…
Reid’s not a well man. There are many Democrats in Congress who display questioanable mental and/or emotional health — John Murtha, Ted Kennedy, Dick Schumer, many others including Senator Barbara Boxer from CA (Democrat, exceptionally Liberal) who, rather than condemn the MoveOn ad, attempted to use her moment on the floor of the Senate to condemn the Swift Boat Veterans as to properly, correctly identifying John Kerry’s lies before the nation (she won’t condemn Kerry, either, or his lies) — who display such degree of irrationality about political issues as to suggest they are literally irrational in their minds about everything: how can anyone be so irrational about one or a few things and be relied upon with anything of any seriousness in any consistent fashion otherwise (the answer is, they can’t be relied upon).
Enter House Republicans, who honorably offer a House Resolution in support and commemoration of Rush Limbaugh, and I quote from THE DRUDGE REPORT flash headline news (the DRUDGE flash news page contents changes in time, so I saved a cached copy of this present page, for future reference):
HOUSE RESOLUTION SUPPORTING LIMBAUGH
Mon Oct 01 2007 15:16:57 ET
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OCTOBER 1, 2007
Mr. KINGSTON submitted the following resolution
Commending Rush Hudson Limbaugh III for his ongoing public support of American troops serving both here and abroad. Recognizing Mr. Limbaugh for his relentless efforts to build and maintain troop morale through worldwide radio broadcasts and personal visits to conflict regions.
Whereas the need to show support for American troops serving and fighting both here and abroad during a time of global conflict has never been greater, with the need to communicate an uplifting message of encouragement to American soldiers eternally important, in addition to the morale-boosting value of personal visits to region by highly-regarded individuals;
Whereas daily radio broadcasts reaching tens of millions of civilians and soldiers both in America and abroad by way of the Armed Forces Radio Network are conducted five days a week by Rush Hudson Limbaugh III;
Whereas Mr. Limbaugh has consistently used his broadcast time to praise American troops and support them during their ongoing efforts to secure peace in a troubled world;
Whereas Mr. Limbaugh made a week-long visit to meet with troops based in Afghanistan in 2004;
Whereas Mr. Limbaugh has raised and donated millions of dollars to the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation, which provides college scholarships to the children of Marines and veterans of other branches killed in action;
Whereas Mr. Limbaugh’s website features an “Adopt a Soldier” program which provides them with free subscription access to his online program features;
Whereas during the original invasion in 2003, pilots of five different aircraft flew an American flag in Mr. Limbaugh’s honor during their bombing and refueling runs; and
Whereas Mr. Limbaugh’s commitment to American troops serving both here and abroad remains as strong as ever: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives–
(1) recognizes Rush Hudson Limbaugh III for his support of the Marine Corp Law Enforcement Foundation and for providing free subscriptions for active-duty servicemembers;
(2) recognizes Mr Limbaugh’s desire to see American troops achieve a successful outcome in Iraq, Afghanistan and wherever soldiers are stationed; and
(3) commends Mr. Limbaugh’s tireless public support for American troops and their families through radio broadcasts, fundraising and other public support.
I wholeheartedly support the House Republicans in this Resolution.
But that still leaves the nation with the glaring problem of a mentally unstable Majority Whip, Harry Reid, in the Senate. He should be evaluated by a physician for mental competency. Our nation’s safety depends upon it.
