WHAT IN THE WORLD DO THESE WORDS OUT OF HARRY REID’S MOUTH MEAN? HOW EXACTLY ARE REID’S VERSIONS OF THESE THINGS ACTUALLY RELATED TO SECURITY? HE HAS CONSISTENTLY OPPOSED DRILLING OR PRODUCING MORE ENERGY HERE. NOW HE WANTS TO MAKE PRODUCING ANYTHING HERE MORE EXPENSIVE AND THIS AMOUNTS TO SECURITY? THEN WE HAVE HIS AMNESTY AND OPEN BORDER POLICIES. I FAIL TO SEE HOW THIS MAKES US MORE SAFE. INTERESTINGLY, REID DOESN’T REALLY EVEN DEFEND HIMSELF WITH A LOGICAL RESPONSE. HE JUST ANNOUNCES THAT IT IS AND THEN GOES BACK TO PLUGGING FORWARD WITH IMPOSING HIS VISION ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
In a statement Saturday that was both conciliatory and noncommittal, Reid said he is committed to passing both immigration and energy this year.
“Immigration and energy reform are equally vital to our economic and national security and have been ignored for far too long,” he said.
