Harry Reid says “Obama – Reid team is the greatest in US history.”
“The record book that records will be written about the eight years of Obama and Reid, never in the history of the country — never in the history of the country — have we produced more for a president and somebody that’s led his party than we’ve done together,” Mr. Reid said Friday on KNPR radio.
“Well, I’ll be damned,” Mr. Reid said. “I’ll be damned.”
“I think that when the story is written and when all is told, you’re gonna have somebody who has done more for Nevada and for this country as anybody who’s ever been in the Senate, and I could not be prouder of him — he did an unbelievable job on a whole bunch of really tough issues,” Mr. Obama said. “Saving this country from a depression, making sure millions of people had health care, makin’ sure that young people were able to go to college and he’s been one of my best partners and best friends and I’m really honored to have served him.”
Mr. Reid assured the president the feeling was mutual.
“We’ve done it as friends, we’ve done it as people who love our country. We love it as a couple of people who have backgrounds that are so unusual,” Mr. Reid said. “How in the world did Obama and Reid get to where they are? We talked last night — I have so much affection and admiration for Barack Obama, that we’ve proven that to each other, our mutual affection, and we have 22 more months to continue doing the best we can for our country.”
“That’s what we’re gonna do,” Mr. Obama said.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note: We’ve heard everything now, folks. The last 6+ years with Obama at the helm have been some of the best years in the history of the country. Do you believe it? Do you believe they have the gall to even THINK that? Over six years of deadlock in Congress, with Reid stacking bills on his desk rather than bringing them to a vote. (Don’t want to actually pass something the Republicans might be able to take some credit for, do we?) Adding not billions, but trillions, of dollars to the US debt. (No matter. It’s only paper, you know.) Spending more than forty million (40 MILLION) dollars on Obama and family vacations. (How much did the average American get to spend on vacations? Nothing. Nothing at all. We didn’t take vacations. We were too busy trying to find jobs and keep a roof over our heads.) Opening our southern border to illegal aliens by the thousands, so they could stay here, get steady jobs, and hopefully vote Democratic in upcoming elections. (The 2014 election showed just how well that theory worked, with Republicans taking over the Senate, the House, and a majority of governorships.) Pulling all our troops out of Iraq on a pre-announced schedule so the radical Islamists could move in right behind us. (The Islamic State now controls huge swaths of the entire Middle East, thanks to the opening we gave them in Iraq.) Shoving Obamacare down our throats whether we wanted it or not, so that a small minority of Americans could finally get some healthcare by paying too much for it. Spending US taxpayer money in Israel to defeat the Prime Minister, who was running for re-election. (Another really good idea from Obonehead in the Oval Office. Mr. Netanyahu won by a substantial margin, and the White House appeared dumber than ever.) So…brace yourselves, folks. That wonderful White House team, led by you-know-who, wants to bring you another “twenty-two months of the best we can do for our country.” May God help us…because He is our only chance.
