And now that Reid knows she will be his opponent he’s ramped up his media machine so this would be a good place to keep tabs on what he says as well.
Personally, I said it a year or two ago in a GD thread: no way Reid doesn’t get re-elected. The Republicans have no one of any substance (or sanity) to run against him. I mean this is the best they could come up with, because no way in hell could our Republican governor win. We loathe him.
Ried has the charisma of a guppy. But Angle is an idiot. He was vulnerable until they wound up picking her. She is way too stupid to get elected. Although it would not be the first time, there is Sarah. If Angle and Palin had a discussion. it would require subtitles to turn it into English .
It’s obvious that God wants Reid to win this election, otherwise why would He bother creating Sharron Angle? She makes Rand Paul look like a great statesman. She makes Sarah Palin look like a policy wonk. Good heavens, what were Nevada voters thinking to nominate her?
What’s with the hate for Reid? Yeah, Nevada’s economy is tanking. Offhand, I’d say it’s because with the US economy in shambles, people have less discretionary income to come to Vegas and gamble. I don’t see how people expect their US senator to keep unemployment in a state from rising.
Senators can to little to counteract national unemployment problems. When states are suffering from out sourcing and national problems, the state politicians take a lot of heat, But they really don’t have the power to overcome the problems.
Governors take the same heat. Many incumbents are in trouble for an economy they are powerless to change.
I like Harry Reid - actually met him once and had a chance to talk one-on-one for awhile.
Here in Nevada, voters are a fickle bunch and I think they don’t look at the big picture.
Harry Reid is the Majority Leader in the Senate! Does anyone in Nevada really think someone (especially idiot Sharron Angle) could possibly have any more pull and power in Washington that Harry does?! This is a guy who has Obama on his speed dial - literally.
You might not like everything Democrats are doing and disagree with some of the bills or methods; but do Nevadans really think it isn’t advantageous to have a Senator with that much power in DC?
We’ll see what happens, but right now I have no idea how this election is going to turn out. Polls show Harry climbing - with a slight lead at this point. However, it is all going to come down to turnout. If the Republicans and their fellow teabaggers show up in droves, and complacent Dems stay at home, Harry could be in trouble.
I get mailings from Reid every four days or so. His campaign is “Sharron Angle’s 40 Dangerous Ideas” or some other number. He highlights the nutty shit she’s said. I was planning on sitting this election out or voting third party. That’s become much less likely every day.
