Insane: Dingy Harry Says GOP May Have Helped Russia Annex Crimea

It just doesn’t get any crazier or mendacious as this. He’s basically accusing them of being enemies of their own country. Desperate, ugly stuff.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Republicans may have helped Russia annex Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in a surprisingly sharp attack ahead of a test vote on a bill authorizing more U.S. sanctions on Russia and $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine.

Outlining the Senate’s agenda after a one-week recess, the Nevada Democrat said the first item would be the Ukraine bill that Republicans blocked just before lawmakers went on break. He urged Republicans to consider “how their obstruction affects United States’ national security as well as the people of Ukraine” and said their delay of any congressional action “sent a dangerous message to Russian leaders.”

“Since a few Republicans blocked these important sanctions last work period, Russian lawmakers voted to annex Crimea and Russian forces have taken over Ukrainian military bases,” Reid said. “It’s impossible to know whether events would have unfolded differently if the United States had responded to Russian aggression with a strong, unified voice.”

Impossible to know. So why say something so outrageous? Naturally, you know who’s got a hand in this:

Reid said Republicans blocked the bill to “protect the anonymity of their big-money donors” such as the Koch brothers, two of America’s wealthiest men who’ve strongly supported conservative causes. He was referring to an unsuccessful attempt by some Republicans to include an amendment to the bill halting new IRS regulations on groups claiming tax-exempt status.

“Republicans objected to moving forward with this aid package unless Democrats agreed to allow the Kochs and billionaires like them to continue to anonymously spend millions trying to buy America’s democracy,” Reid said. “It’s hard to believe. But that’s the truth.”

    What a disgusting, subhuman scumbag this guy is. The world outlook for the future will be greatly improved when he is gone from this Earth.

    I really hate to say it, but what this old bastard needs is a good old fashioned ass kicking.

    In truth, it’s folks like Harry that caused this bill to fail, by tying the passage of the bill to language meant to hurt their political enemies.

    Harry: You have no one to blame but yourself for this bill not passing.

    I wonder if when harry and John McCain get together to discuss foreign policy, do they both wear spit masks?
