You Won’t Believe Democrat Harry Reid’s Reaction to the Announcement of the Benghazi Select Committee
May 2, 2014 By Matthew Burke
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid weighed in on Friday regarding the news that a new Select Committee is being formed to get to the bottom of the Obama White House’s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attacks on September 11, 2012.
Reid, obsessed with the vilification of the pro-free market Koch Brothers, could not mentally set aside his vendetta, a strategy he earlier admitted was purely a tactic to raise money from Democrat donors, even long enough to comment on the completely unrelated news of the day.
Democrat Leader Reid, using both his and the Obama regime’s classic Marxist, class-warfare rhetoric, while slipping in another Koch Brothers attack in a statement he released on Friday:
“Republicans are showing yet again that they have nothing to offer the middle class. Republicans care more about defending billionaires like the Koch brothers and trying to rekindle debunked right-wing conspiracy theories than raising the minimum wage or ensuring women receive equal pay for equal work.”
Reid then went on to use the ‘this is old news meme,’ surely to be repeated as a Democrat Party talking point, already beginning the
delegitimation process by calling the committee a “political circus” and a “political food fight,” while suddenly being concerned about the cost to taxpayers:
“There have already been multiple investigations into this issue and an independent Accountability Review Board is mandated under current law. For Republicans to waste the American people’s time and money staging a partisan political circus instead of focusing on the middle class is simply a bad decision. While Republicans try to gin up yet another political food fight, Senate Democrats will remain focused on fostering economic growth for all hard-working Americans.”
Democrat Leader Reid is currently operating under the dark cloud of being accused of ethics violations for using government property and resources to attack the Koch Brothers.
