Harry Reid Implies Sequester Caused Explosion That Killed 7 Marines In Nevada

via RCP

On the Senate floor this morning, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) implied the explosion that killed seven Marines at an ammunitions depot in Hawthorne, Nevada was due to the "cutting back in training and maintenance" in the sequester.


HARRY REID: As I indicated, it was quite a big explosion. We'll follow this news very closely. I will do whatever I can going forward to support the United States military and the families of the fallen Marines.

Mr. President, it's very important we continue training our military, so important. But one of the things in sequester is we cut back in training and maintenance. That's the way sequester was written. Now, the bill that's on the floor, we hope to pass today helps that a little bit. At least in the next six months, it allows the military some degree of ability to move things around a little bit. Flexibility, we call it, and that's good. But we have to be very vigilant. This sequester should go away. We have cut already huge amounts of money in deficit reduction. It's just not appropriate, Mr. President, that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary.

These men and women, our Marines were training there in Hawthorne. And with this sequester, it's going to cut back this stuff. I just hope everyone understands the sacrifices made by our military. They are significant, being away from home, away from families, away from their country.

In earlier times, or in a land of decency, he would be tried for treason on the latter

Only idiots with an obsessive agenda would read what Reid said and conclude he was blaming that accident on the sequester.

Reid referenced the tragedy for political gain.

Your stupidity and leftist brown nosing knows no bounds:

"This sequester should go away. We have cut already huge amounts of money in deficit reduction. It's just not appropriate, Mr. President, that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary.

If one noted the polls in Nevada in 2010, they said that Brian Sandoval would be elected Governor with 60% of the vote, and Sharron Angle was polling 49-45 over Reid.

Sandoval won 54% of the vote, and Reid magically got a six point margin over Angle.

In normal speak, we call that fraud. Swings like that don't happen.

The reason is quite simple, Reid's son directed the fraud in Clark County.

When do you get to the part about where the sequester was responsible for the accident?

Politicizing it is a far cry from blaming it for the accident.

He's inserting that language as a scare tactic that the sheeple will swallow as they always do. It's a vile thing to use dead men to attempt to achieve your fiscally irresponsible goals.

So you agree with me that he was not blaming the sequester for those people's deaths.

He directly tied the tragedy in Nevada with the sequester.
No doubt about it.
He is shameful.

You wrote the title of this thread, didn't you? You wrote that he implied that it caused it. That's different, isn't it?

The editorial staff at Real Clear Politics wrote the title, idiot.
I know you're too eager to defending Reid -- that shameless, opportunitistic moron -- to actually read the referenced article.
