“In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smellthe tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it’s true.”If the Senator did any real work, he might sweat a little himself. Instead, the only thing this self-proclaimed prince can do is to spend our hard earned money! This is also the same pompous Senator who said the war was lost while our troops were still overseas!
This week at a luncheon, Prince Harry told a Nevada Businessman,
“I hope you go out of business!”He’s like a child that just doesn’t know when to shut up. I hate to be rude but this behavior is unacceptable, you are above no one. How dare he bully anyone! Is this what our founding fathers had in mind, a legislative body of bullies? We can only hope that he’ll be voted out this upcoming election!
Heres more on the exchange from the Review-Journal,
On Wednesday, before he addressed a Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Reid joined the chamber's board members for a meet-'n'-greet and a photo. One of the last in line was the Review-Journal's director of advertising, Bob Brown, a hard-working Nevadan who toils every day on behalf of advertisers. He has nothing to do with news coverage or the opinion pages of the Review-Journal. Yet, as Bob shook hands with our senior U.S. senator in what should have been nothing but a gracious business setting, Reid said: "I hope you go out of business."
Later, in his public speech, Reid said he wanted to let everyone know that he wants the Review-Journal to continue selling advertising because the Las Vegas Sun is delivered inside the Review-Journal. Such behavior cannot go unchallenged. You could call Reid's remark ugly and be right. It certainly was boorish. Asinine? That goes without saying.
But to fully capture the magnitude of Reid's remark (and to stop him from doing the same thing to others) it must be called what it was -- a full-on threat perpetrated by a bully who has forgotten that he was elected to office to protect Nevadans, not sound like he's shaking them down.
