Dingy Harry: Ted Cruz “Attempting to Raise Money” Off Shutdown

Posted by on Oct 19, 2013 at 11:52 am

Whenever a Democrat makes a wild accusation, you can be sure they’re guilty of the same behavior.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) “hurt average Americans” as part of a bid to raise his national stature and run for president.

“In an effort to help him run for president, he has done some stuff that’s really damaging to our country,” Reid told Univision in an interview set to air Sunday.

The Nevada Democrat chastised Cruz for “attempting to raise money” off the government shutdown, which Reid noted was a financial stress on federal employees and their communities.

“He has hurt average Americans,” Reid said. “The government being shutdown for 14 or 15 days, that has been very hurtful to people. Not only the people that work for government, but the people who work around government. They couldn’t buy clothes. They couldn’t buy gasoline. They couldn’t go to movies.”

That’s nonsense. People still got paid, but whose fault is it if people are so incapable of managing their finances that a two-week delay in getting a paycheck means they can’t feed themselves?  Meanwhile, even preceding the shutdown, it was Democrats firing off fundraising letters.

The Democrats are throwing a fundraising shutdown party.Vice President Joe Biden has dispatched an email to supporters slamming the Republicans over the budget and potential government shutdown that also seeks contributions to the Democratic Party of up to $2,000.

Shameless? Biden suggests it’s the Republicans who are the bad guys in the crisis, and he claims that they’ve given the party over to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who is leading the fight to defund Obamacare.

We guess Dingy Harry missed this somehow.

Jammie — this afternoon, we told you that Republicans are hell-bent on hijacking President Obama’s second term.

Well, your grassroots response has been JAW-DROPPING! Just in the last couple hours, over 5,500 supporters have stepped up. That’s 40 donations a minute! We can hardly believe it!!!

If we can get 21,000 more donations in the next 24 hours, it would be a record-breaking show of support for President Obama at this critical moment.

But Cruz? Yeah, he’s the villain here. In the mean time, the Democrat orgy of hate toward Cruz has led to the inevitable death threats. Take a bow, Senator Reid.
