Talk about the crackpot calling the kettle cracked. Authoritarian corruptocrat Harry Reid (a.k.a. Hairy Greed), who recently characterized Americans peaceably resisting tyranny as “domestic terrorists,” once denounced his fellow oligarchical collectivist Hu Jintao of communist China as a “dictator.” From 2011:
“I am going to go back to Washington tomorrow and meet with the president of China. He is a dictator,” Reid told local TV talk show “Face to Face with Jon Ralston.” “He can do a lot of things through the form of government they have.”
Envy can be a very ugly emotion.
Not to worry. Reid’s undiplomatic outburst didn’t cause the ChiComs to stop lending money to prop up our wildly excessive government spending. Reid quickly realized he had overstepped and humbly backed away from his statement.
“Maybe I shouldn’t have said dictator, but they have a different type of government than we have and that’s an understatement,” Reid said.
However, it has been getting less different every year — with help from Reid.
If the communist regime took offense, things are long since patched up. It was with the ChiComs that Reid and his son Rory conspired to enrich themselves with yet another “green energy” boondoggle, once the last rancher in Cliven Bundy’s neck of the woods had been driven off the land.
Whether he will attempt to patch things up with the Nevadans he supposedly represents is doubtful.
