Would somebody please get Harry Reid back on his meds?
He’s taking self-delusion to new heights.
In one of his semi-weekly rants against the Tea Party, which Reid thinks has been running the country for the past several years, the geriatric Senate majority leader compared conservatives to anarchists, then said government is “inherently good.”
“We have a situation where this country has been driven by the Tea Party for the last number of years. … They don’t say they’re against government, but that is what it all amounts to,” Reid said.
(Spare a moment to process the contradiction in the concept of a group that allegedly “runs” everything yet is against government. I’d like to sit in on the Liberal Logic 101 class sometime. It must be a hoot: “OK, class, pay attention. This is how we construct a syllogism: If A, then squirrels. A, therefore ‘marriage equality.’ You could also answer ‘chipped beef.'”)
“They’re not doing physically destructive things to buildings and people, directly, but they are doing everything they can to throw a monkey wrench into every form of government, whether it’s local, state, or federal,” Reid continued.
“Government is not inherently bad,” he said, “government is inherently good.”
No one is good but God, that’s what the Bible says. So is Reid actually comparing government to God? That would make him some sort of prophet, priest or saint.
That might help explain how he “just knew” that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes, despite facts to the contrary.
It might also explain all those magic voting machines that helped him and his friend Barry get re-elected. It wasn’t fraud, it was a miracle.
If government is inherently good, then only evil people would oppose it or suggest that any of its actions — such as those in Benghazi, in the Fast and Furious program, Obamacare, or violating religious rights — are anything other than completely virtuous.
Do these people actually believe this smoke they’re blowing in our faces, or do they just think we’re stupid enough to accept Harry Reid’s version of the Gospel truth?
