It looks like Greta Van Susteren – who isn’t even a Republican – is taking the lead in asking Harry Reid to step down from the Senate leadership for calling millions of frightened and hurt Americans, liars. Reid owes 6 million Americans an apology, but more than that, Congressional Republicans should follow Greta’s lead and call for Dingy Harry to resign. The man should no longer be allowed to embarrass and a disgrace the Senate with his absurd thuggery.
On Fox’s On the Record, Friday night, she had a panel with Susan Ferrichio of the Washington Examiner, Kirstin Powers, of USA Today and John McCormick of the Weekly Standard to discuss why Reid can still Majority Leader after smearing so many Americans with such a spurious lie. “Is it because he’s good, because the Democrats are afraid of him, or because they like him in the job?” She asked.
Ferrichio correctly noted that Reid is known for making outrageous comments, and people usually forget about it after awhile, but he’s really stirred up a hornets nest with this latest comment (which is really a lie, as Greta reminded her.)
Kirstin Powers wanted to make the point that what Reid said, was that not all of the horror stories were true, referring I assume to the walk-back that came a few hours later, when he admitted, “I can’t say that every one of the Koch brothers’ ads are a lie, but I’ll say this. Mr. President, the vast, vast majority of them are. And it’s time the American people spoke out against this terrible dishonesty of these two brothers who are about as un-American as anyone that I can imagine.”
That was his lame attempt to narrow his remarks to just the AFP ads, and focus on the Koch brothers. He was still obnoxiously wrong.
The American people are speaking out against someone’s “terrible dishonesty”, all right. His.
John McCormick said this latest verbal faux pas is going to backfire on him and Powers mentioned that in 2010, there were actually quite a few Democrts who wanted him to lose so someone else (most likely Schumer) could take over the leadership of the Senate.
Should Reid Resign? – New Calls For Senate Majority Leader To Step Down _ On The Record:
I think it’s a little naive of Greta not to understand that what Reid was trying to do by calling 6 million Americans liars. He’s trying to lead Democrats in an election year strategy to isolate Americans who have suffered under ObamaCare and delegitimize any of the conservative groups (especially Americans For Prosperity) who are turning their horror stories into devastating campaign ads for Republicans. He’s trying to taint their stories in the public’s minds. Alinsky radicals are not about truth they are all about raw power. How to reach it and how to keep it.
There was a remarkable moment during a congressional hearing on Wednesday when constitutional law expert and self-proclaimed Obama supporter, Jonathan Turley, explained the legislative branch of the U.S. government is in danger of becoming irrelevant because of persistant executive overreach. Turley, who is a professor of public interest law at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., believes America has reached a “constitutional tipping point” under President Obama’s watch.
“This is, I think, the most important… moment of audio… in the last I don’t even know how many years. This is the American crisis… This is beyond the constitutional crisis. This is a constitutional tipping point,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This happened yesterday in the House Judiciary Committee… Jonathan Turley is a liberal… He’s a guy who’s on the left, is a support of the President, says in his testimony, ‘Look, I agree with what [the President is] trying to do. Just not how he is doing it.’ And I want you to listen because what he’s saying is: If we don’t wake up right now, we will be very sorry.”

Canadian high school students have said a massive thank you to a local elderly lady who brightens their day, every day, with a smiling wave from her front room window.
Eighty-four-year-old Tinney Davidson started waving to passing highschool students with her husband Ken when they moved into the house in 2007. Ken died in recent years, and Tinney decided to keep up the habit.
She told Chek News: “I just like the look of the children and they all looked in so I thought ‘If they’re looking in, I’ll wave to them. And that’s how it started.
“I love it, and they seem to like it also.”
The students of Highland Secondary School in Comox, British Columbia in western Canada invited Tinney to a school assembly to thank her in person with speeches, cards and a video message.
