The Incoherent Cowardice Of Harry Reid

More

by Chris Bodenner

If you are going to cling to your talking points, at least make sense:

REID: I’m saying that the United States Senate, Democrats and Republicans, do not want terrorists to be released in the United States. That’s very clear.

QUESTION: No one’s talking about releasing them. We’re talking about putting them in prison somewhere in the United States.

REID: Can’t put them in prison unless you release them.

QUESTION: Sir, are you going to clarify that a little bit? …

REID: I can’t make it any more clear than the statement I have given to you. We will never allow terrorists to be released in the United States.

If anyone in Nevada is poised to run on a "Free The Terrorists" platform in 2010, here's your chance.
