Great news from Harry Reid: "The border is secure": Updated





Via the Free Beacon. Nothing that comes out of the mouth of this senile buffoon surprises me any more.  But in the context of the ongoing chaos on our southern border, this is exceptionally dumb even by Dingy Harry standards:

I go back and forth on which individual in the Democrat Party’s leadership is nuttier: Reid or Pelosi. Reid has inched ahead today but, let’s face it, the day’s still young. And, per Noemie Emery, both of them should be looking over their shoulder as Obama’s in the process of mounting a serious challenge to their supremacy in this area:

Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job.

A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks about NBA ratings and where he will live when he leaves. And having stopped being president, he has also stopped being presidential — Politico reported last week of a rally, "So punchy was he that he was leaning arms hanging off the front of his podium, telling a few hecklers to ‘sit down’ and instructing the Secret Service not to bother removing them, Obama said he was feeling liberated. … ‘I don’t have to run for office anymore, so I can just let it rip,’ he said."

Calling himself "the bear," he has taken to roaming the streets around Washington, dropping in at fast food stops and bothering customers. But he jumped the shark on a trip out West last week, when he skirted the crisis convulsing the border to hang out and chill with the folks. "What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world?" asked the Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin, having watched him in Denver eat pizza with strangers, shoot pool with the governor, and shake hands with "a guy on the street" who was wearing a horse’s head mask.

Heh. We’re in good hands, folks.

Update: A friend emailed to berate me over neglecting to include Joe Biden in the nutty Democrat leader club. He has a good point.

    It’s Nero Hour, but our toga party leader has no fiddle to play while the flames in Texas, Gaza and Iraq burn on. Maybe Sarah could lend him her flute.

      Nixon was not anywhere as bad as what we have now.

    Of course the border is secure. It hasn’t moved since the Spanish American War.
    And we welcome everyone to take a look at it from both sides of the border no matter where they come from or what their intent are. There are a number of undocumented pharmaceutical workers carrying untold packages of medical and recreational drugs, and they also facilitate the secure passage for jihadists.

    Oh for flipping sake !! Harry Reid has got to be the worst Majority Leader in history. Its time for him to retire and he can take Thad Cochran with him.

  • CharterOakie

    Reid, Pelosi, Biden: dingbats.
    In Reid’s case, with a heavy dose of petty nastiness.

    Without equivocation.
