Harry Reid. He really is making his political death complete. From Gateway Pundit: Harry Reid Tells Nevada Businessman: "I Hope You Go Out of Business". Isn't that sweet? Jerk off.
Schmuck. Either he is feeling his waivering status as a Nevadan Senator or he is bullying his business leaders into voting for him. Can you believe any of this crap from such a worthy fella? Jerk off.
Review Journal: SHERMAN FREDERICK: Enough is enough, Harry , via the Fox Nation. From the iStockAnalyst: Nevada Jobless Rate Could Hit 15 Percent: Low Consumer Spending and Construction Slows Rebound. Apparently, Nevadan unemployment is at 11.7% at the moment and it looks like it is going much higher. Lke one of the articles said, Michigan won't be kicked around too much longer pretty soon.
[...] On Wednesday, before he addressed a Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Reid joined the chamber's board members for a meet-'n'-greet and a photo. One of the last in line was the Review-Journal's director of advertising, Bob Brown, a hard-working Nevadan who toils every day on behalf of advertisers. He has nothing to do with news coverage or the opinion pages of the Review-Journal.
Yet, as Bob shook hands with our senior U.S. senator in what should have been nothing but a gracious business setting, Reid said: "I hope you go out of business."
Later, in his public speech, Reid said he wanted to let everyone know that he wants the Review-Journal to continue selling advertising because the Las Vegas Sun is delivered inside the Review-Journal.
Such behavior cannot go unchallenged.
You could call Reid's remark ugly and be right. It certainly was boorish. Asinine? That goes without saying.
But to fully capture the magnitude of Reid's remark (and to stop him from doing the same thing to others) it must be called what it was -- a full-on threat perpetrated by a bully who has forgotten that he was elected to office to protect Nevadans, not sound like he's shaking them down. [...]
[...] For the sake of all who live and work in Nevada, we can't let this bully behavior pass without calling out Sen. Reid. If he'll try it with the Review-Journal, you can bet that he's tried it with others. So today, we serve notice on Sen. Reid that this creepy tactic will not be tolerated. [...]

Sic vis pacem para bellum
That, I think, is a better takeaway than the “threat” meme resulting from Harry Reid’s bon mot with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which has been highly critical of the Senate Majority Leader. Reid went out of his way to be rude to an advertising manager at the LVRJ during a luncheon, then tried clumsily to claw backwards a bit later. [...]
Give 'em hell Ed!
