Back in April, I documented how Mitch McConnell had yielded control of the Senate back to Harry Reid, and the inept and cowardly senator from Kentucky continues to prove my point. But now, Reid himself has confirmed how he is on the same team as the Republican establishment under Mickey’s “leadership.”
Using talking points that sound like they could have come from a McConnell staffer, Reid joined the Florida Sun-Sentinal and presidential hopeful Jeb Bush in calling for Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) to resign his Senate seat. And in what could be considered a nod to Conservatives, Dirty Harry even hearkened back to the Founding Fathers.
In an interview with Politico, Reid said:
“Why shouldn’t he [resign]? He hates the Senate. Why should the taxpayers of this country and [the] people of Florida put up with having only one senator?”
Actually, Harry, I often wonder why the country has to put up with ANY senator. But I digress…
Reid’s comments came after the Sun-Sentinal wrote an editorial calling for Rubio to step down because he was missing too many votes and wasn’t adequately representing Florida — a sentiment shared by Jeb Bush during the CNBC debate when he directly turned to Rubio on stage and bluntly told him the same thing.
“For Marco Rubio here to dump on the Senate, this institution established by our Founding Fathers, he should be ashamed of himself. And the people of Florida, why they put up with it, I don’t know. The damn sure aren’t getting their money’s worth.”
Besides the absurdity of having the mafia senator from Nevada lecture America on the intent of the Founding Fathers—he didn’t seem to care too much about them when he crammed Obamacare down our throats—did you notice that he made no mention of Bernie Sanders’ missed votes?
I also don’t seem to recall Harry having this concern when he anointed the man “with no negro dialect” to run for president. According to GovTrack, Obama missed 37.6 percent of his votes in 2007, and over 64 percent in 2008.
In the end, Reid’s comments about Rubio confirm something Conservatives have known for quite some time about the Republican establishment and the Democrats — they are one and the same. The establishment hates Conservatives like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, and so does Reid. The establishment loves RINOs like Jeb Bush, John Boehner and Paul Ryan, and so does Reid.
As I have written recently, the Republican party has been destroyed by the likes of Mitch McConnell and essentially no longer exists—a fact that Ted Cruz emphasized from the Senate floor following the debate—and the time is now for a political revolution.
But that’s what happens when you have Harry Reid and the Republican establishment on the same team.
