Harry Reid shocked the nation, today when he spent 15 minutes on the Senate floor complaining bitterly about John Boehner’s lawsuit against Obama. The newsworthy thing about it wasn’t the fact that he was taking up the Senate’s time to complain about the Speaker of the House’s lawsuit – we’ve all come to expect hyper-partisan mud-slinging from the Majority Leader. It was that he didn’t mention the Koch brothers once during the entire rant.
Instead, he brought up TV’s Judge Judy, claiming she would throw out the GOP lawsuit against Obama because it is “without merit.”
“House members would rather waste dollars than accept the fact that their constituents are benefiting from health care reform,” Dingy rasped, pretending he cares about wasted tax dollars.”This is a phony trial that will come up. It’s a show trial. It’s what Republicans want. If that’s what they want, they should talk to Judge Judy. I think she would throw this case out in half a second. I think Judge Judy would agree.”
I hope Dingy understands that reporters are or soon will be contacting Judge Judy for her opinion on the case – setting him up for a major embarrassment if she doesn’t agree.
The lawsuit, of course, centers around Obama’s strategic delay of the unpopular, job-destroying employer mandate – which Dingy claimed was authored by Senate Republicans, (according to the same anonymous source who told him that all Obamacare horror stories were false and Mitt Romney didn’t pay taxes for 10 years.)
“Is this weird? Is this weird? I can answer my own question. Yes, it is weird,” Dingy mumbled. “They’re suing the president of the United States because he did what they wanted him to do. … Enough is enough. The fight over Obamacare should be long since ended. The law is here to stay.”
“It’s. The. Law.” (Unless Obama says it isn’t.)
Dingy began by listing the Democrat’s Marxist election year agenda, which he contends the GOP should be joining Democrats on – the minimum wage hike, Obama’s “Equal Pay Act” farce, the “crippling debt that is staggering this country” (yes he actually said that!) before clarifying – “that is student loan debt,” and extending unemployment (even more!) All of which he couches as policies that would help “the middle class.”
“So what are they doing to solve the problems of this country? Reid rasped sadly. “Suing the president” over the much beloved ObamaCare – which Dingy said even Republicans across the country now love and support.
He brayed that the lawsuit was only “an effort to appease the tea party radicals in the House of Representatives.”
