    Harry Reid is a charmer

    Harry Reid is a charmer

    And you wonder why nothing gets done in the Senate and Republicans can’t even get votes on legislation or a budget?

    Via The Hill:

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has launched a blistering verbal assault against William Magwood, a Democratic member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission nominated by President Obama, calling him a “liar,” a “first-class rat,” and a “s**t-stirrer.”

    Reid, in an interview with The Huffington Post, also calls Magwood a “tool of the nuclear industry” and says he’s “unethical” and “incompetent.”

    Reid’s comments underscore the raw political emotions that have engulfed the NRC over the past year and have long surrounded battles over Yucca Mountain, the proposed nuclear waste dump in Nevada that Reid strongly opposes.

    In the interview, Reid alleged that Magwood lied by indicating in a private meeting with the majority leader he would back efforts to shut down the Yucca project.

    “That man I will never, ever forget what a treacherous, miserable liar he is,” Reid said. He also took aim at Magwood’s accusations against former NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko.

    If Harry is saying that…this must be a great guy!! Remember what he called Tea Party patriots…extremists, terrorists, evil mongers, aren’t real Americans,bunch of garbage, radicals, American Nazi movement, ect….

    The TeaParty people I know are true American patriots, that are worried about the direction this country is heading, and want fiscal responsibility of the government.

    Poor Harry. Yucca Mountain is for nuclear waste not Harry’s plan for condos.

    I think that I can quote a line that I used in a comment just posted with regards to the Romney’s remarks in Israel.

    “Often the disenfranchised can find the villain simply by looking in the mirror…”

    Harry???? Check it out!!

    “That man I will never, ever forget what a treacherous, miserable liar he is,” Reid said.

    Stop looking in the mirror, Harry.

    The Honorable William D. Magwood, IV was sworn in as a Commissioner of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) on April 1, 2010, to an initial term ending on June 30, 2010, and a reappointment term ending June 30, 2015.

    Mr. Magwood has a distinguished career in the nuclear field and in public service. He was the longest-serving head of the United States’ civilian nuclear technology program, serving two Presidents and five Secretaries of Energy from 1998 until 2005.

    … and Magwood is an African-American, which makes Harry Reid a .. wait for it ..
