Reid: Obama like the Chilean miners

Well except the Chilean miners got out of the hole. Details, details.

Harry Reid campaigning in Nevada needs to defend his support of the young President’s disastrous economic policies and when you are desperate on the trail, you will grab for any analogy that you can. But please … this one?


In the land of crazy statements this is a doozie. The biggest problem with the Reid analogy that MSNBC does not point out is that the Chilean miners got out of the hole. Here we have a young President who keeps digging the hole deeper. Unemployment has gone from 7% to 10%. Annual deficits that have gone from $170 million when the Democrats took over in 2007 to $1.3 trillion. A health care bill that no one read other than the SOS, that not only has it not cut costs but has led to record breaking increases. On and on it goes. Memo to Harry: You’re digging in the wrong direction.

    Isn't the problem that Øbama is digging his own mine, and trapping all of us in it instead of him?


    Maybe Reid should have shared his sage knowledge with the young president rather than rubber stamping and ramming through everything that came his way…

    A lot of knew, when the results of the last election were computed, this administration would be a train wreck. I am agast at how bad it is. Putting as much power in the hands of a few individuals, all of which have a specific adgenda, was an invitation for abuse. It seems like a lot of Americans have seen through the lies and rhetoric. I can only hope that the age of instant information we live in now will keep the "business as usual" politicians from convincing us wrong is right.

    Obama's "Hope and Change" is now our "Hope for Change".
