“If we can come up with something like we did when they created this other furor by refusing to increase the debt when we had the ability to come in here and have a couple of votes to determine whether we were going to increase it. I mean if that’s what they want to do again I’ll be happy to seriously take a look at that and report to the White house and my caucus but until then I object.” —Sen. Harry ReidThere is nothing better than a good soft shoe. A little sand spread on stage then the performer rhythmically glides and shuffles his or her feet in syncopated and non-syncopated movements of sound.
And then there is Senate Leader Democrat Harry Reid. You won’t find a better political Orwellian soft shoe than Sen. Reid.
What Sen. Reid spreads around isn’t sand nevertheless the way he uses newspeak the Orwellian concept of attempting to influence thought by influencing the expressiveness of the English language is simply Blackwhite.
Notice how Sen. Reid vilifies Republicans with Reid “soft shoe” Blackwhite Owellianism.
First Sen. Reid falsely claims that Gov. Romney is still lurking in the background. The truth is Gov. Romney has nothing to do with the Fiscal Cliff negotiations. He then states that Republicans can’t decide who is leading them Senator McConnell or Congressman Boehner pointing to the obvious disunity in GOP leadership.
Sen. Reid pronounced that Americans blame George Bush for the debt crisis we now face even after 4 years of Soetoro historic record spending
Reid intimates that Republicans are solely responsible for the fiscal crisis
Anticipating another dismal jobs report Sen. Reid deflects by saying the new jobs report is reflective of a little problem caused not by four years of a Democrat presidency and it’s policies he suggests that hurricane Sandy allowed only the creation of a meager 100,000 new jobs. Which brings the total job creation of the Obama administration overall to 4 million. Realizing that this is a laughable number Reid adds, job creation under Obama doesn’t make up for jobs lost during the Bush years but Democrats are making progress.
Reid then attacks what he terms top down economy during Bush years. He believes through the reelection of Obama Americans rejected that economy. He further believes the Bush economy is the reason Americans rejected Gov. Romney
Even so, Reid says that he would be happy to look at the same top down economic ideas that the Republicans are still attempting to present in the present Fiscal Cliffs debates.
Then Sen. Reid goes totally negative he says, “If we can come up with something like we did when they created this other furor by refusing to increase the debt when we had the ability to come in here and have a couple of votes to determine whether we were going to increase it. I mean if that’s what they want to do again I’ll be happy to seriously take a look at that and report to the White house and my caucus but until then I object.”
Sen. Reid has just given the Republicans the old soft shoe of Blackwhite. Orwellian newspeak that is meant to demonize Republicans by making statements that are in complete contradiction of the facts.
President Bush did not cause the present debt crisis 4 years of Democrat policies under Democrat president Barry Hussein Soetoro caused this present fiscal crisis.
Republicans aren’t solely responsible for the fiscal crisis Democrats share equal if not more fault.
Job loss wasn’t a result of Bush policies Job loss is the result of Business and Government collusion for the benefit of American born international corporations and their attempt to increase profits and reduce overhead.
President Obama is equally at fault for this.
Sen. Reid’s criticism of a Bush so-called top down economy must be taken for what it is worth given that the Senate, which Sen. Reid is the leader has not presented a budget for the last four years. This is irresponsible and reckless. In addition, this disqualifies Reid from criticizing anyone on fiscal matters.
While I am not suggesting that Conservatives resort to the Orwellian tactics of the Democrats I am showing this methodology as a way of explaining what Democrats are doing to manipulate the American people. I do this in hopes that Republicans study these tactics and create viable counters to this very effect propaganda device.
