Yes, the same Sen. Harry Reid who spent much of the year imagining what secrets were lurking in Mitt Romney’s tax returns is now proclaiming that those demanding answers from U.N. Amb. Susan Rice on her “blame the YouTube video” tour are “unmoored from reality.”

With Rice’s story of the “spontaneous protests” in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 thoroughly debunked, reality is what “certain Republican senators” John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte are trying to uncover in their meeting with the ambassador today. But as we’ve been told again and again, what’s the point of uncovering the facts now? The election’s over.

In a statement released today and tweeted by Reid’s communications director, Reid joins the “we won” crowd in calling for an end to the “personal attacks” against Rice.

One simple solution to the “blatant partisanship” would be for the Democrats to join in the search for answers. There are still plenty who believe the Benghazi investigation is much more than a game.

    Susan Rice is a pathological liar. So in the minds of Democrats …. she’s abundantly qualified for ANY govt or elected office.

    According to an unnamed source Harry Reid not only was behind the attack in Benghazi but forced Susan Rice to lie to the press.

    No documents proving otherwise have been presented so it must be true.

    What does the election have to do with the fact Rice mislead the world with Libya details?She should have told the truth regarding Libya or not assumed the responsibility to do so.

    I used to think he was just deluded. now – he’s snorting of his own free will and trying to force the kool-aide down the throats of those who aren’t punch drunk.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Hey Sen Reidiculous, resident US Senate scofflaw, how does 1,308 days–3 years, 6 months, 29 days–without passing a budget sound as outrageous and utterly unmoored from the LAW? Perhaps you should stop calling others names, just stfu and do the freakin’ job for which you draw a paycheck from American taxpayers!

  • Gallatin

    You’re absolutely right harry the election is over, now the Republicans can get down to the business of “draining the swamp” and rooting out all the lying liars—starting with obowmao then moving on to you.

    Hey, Harry:

    I just heard through the Hollywood grapevine that ‘Phantasm V’ has been given the green light and they want YOU to play The Tall Man.

    Probably make more scaring little kids on the big screen than you ever could on Capital Hill. Or through your off the books Vegas land deals.
