Reid: Cruz's Presidential Ambitions Hurt "Average Americans"

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) isn’t mincing words when it comes to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), calling the 16 day government shutdown “stupid” and accusing Cruz of political opportunism.

“In an effort to help him run for President, he has done some stuff that’s really damaging to our country,” Reid told Univision anchor Jorge Ramos in an interview that will air Sunday, according to a transcript. “He’s been attempting to raise money. And who has he hurt? He has hurt average Americans.”

    So what? In order for Reid to remain a senator he has and continues to do "stuff" that's really damaging to our country.

    What he's really saying is Cruz, you know that's my gig.

  • umh||

    Reid has an great imagination for a corrupt senile old fool.

    "...And who has he hurt? He has hurt average Americans.”

    I've been doing fine during the shutdown, and so has EVERYONE I know.

    Not everybody. Obo's brown shirts shutting down some parks hurt local business.
    But that was by design, not an actual result of the 'shutdown'.

    You don't understand. Grandmas in Michigan were on the verge of STARVING! I heard it on NPR. Soon one program was going to be faced with the choice of charging seniors $5 per WEEK for their meals-on-wheels. PER WEEK!!!!!

    I haven't checked on this, but isn't Ted Cruz Canadian (that is, is he qualified to run for president)? Or is Harry Reid just an idiot? Or both?

  • josh||

    he's eligible, but I don't know about qualified. and yes.

  • Jerry Baustian||

    Harry Reid damages the country every day of the week, and no one knows why he does it. Probably just through ignorance and stupidity.

  • Carolynp||

    This just in: Harry Reid is a pinhead.

  • VG Zaytsev||

    And no one knows how to hurt average Americans like Hairy Reed does.
