Harry Reid, finally, tells it like it is

Talking today about the capture of the terrorist behind the Benghazi attack ... and Republican critics who want to do nothing but attack Obama.

"It doesn't matter what your ideology is, you should feel good about this. There’s no conspiracy here, this is actual news. But the reaction of some of the Republicans, I’ve been told, is to downplay and insult the brave men and women of our special forces and the FBI. They’re trying to say, oh, it’s no big deal. I wonder if the men and women who captured the terrorist agree. But the Republicans said it's no big deal. Even in these days of polarization, created by the obstruction, the delay, and diversion of the Republicans, even in these days of polarization, their reaction is shocking and disgusting. They’re so obsessed with criticism, criticizing anything President Obama does. They’ll go so far as to sit here and insult the men and women in uniform and in law enforcement. They should stop and think, just for a little bit, about what it’s like to put your life on the line and to do something for our country -- that’s what they did. They’re insulting these good men and women who did some courageous things, heroic things, in order to criticize President Obama. I think they’ve lost touch with reality; it’s really pathetic, there’s no other word for it."

There are a lot of other words for it, but none that can be used in polite company.


Thom Tillis

In my nightmares, when I imagine Tillis fawning over the likes of John McCain and sweet Lindsay Graham, I see him parroting whatever bullshit meme the GOP passes down from on high, just like he's parroted whatever ALEC has pushed through his pie hole.

Turns my stomach

These jackasses twist harder than an F-5 tornado in their zest to attack Obama. There is absolutely nothing that isn't fodder for their obsession, and their acolytes drink it up like they're dying of thirst.

This should get Republicans

foaming at the mouth

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

And this will spawn weeks of FoxNews conspiracy garbage

The suspect that was captured is saying the Beghazi attack was retaliation for the anti-Muslim video produced by a right-wing nutcase here in the US.

Previously, Republican pundits said that the capture was designed to detract from the Benghazi investigation or problems with Obamacare and FoxNews floated the trial ballon that it was planned by Obama to make Hillary look good before a high profile interview.

So, Mr. Tillis, do you have an opinion on which distraction Obama is using this distraction to distract from? Which rabbit hole of bulls**t do you want to dive into?
