As Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and President Barack Obama prepared for a fundraiser Tuesday evening to help get Reid re-elected, about 100 protesters worked the Strip in hopes of preventing just that.
Carrying signs and chanting slogans such as “Heave ho! Reid must go!” the protesters in front of Caesars Palace, where the fundraising concert was to take place, criticized Reid’s “tax-and-spend,” “big government” ways.
……The mostly Republican protesters said they want representatives who advocate for small government and are against tax increases.
“We need someone who shares our core principles: family, self-sufficiency, low taxes and getting government out of our lives,” said Dean Meek, a 51-year-old property manager who was carrying a sign that read: “Don’t tax me, bro.”
The protest was organized by Our Country Deserves Better PAC, a conservative, California-based political action committee that is campaigning against Reid’s re-election.
The committee held a news conference Tuesday morning in Las Vegas to highlight its $100,000 anti-Reid ad campaign. Radio, television and Internet ads calling Reid a tax-and-spender who does not respect the military were airing statewide, timed to coincide with the president’s visit.
Reid should have been booted back in April, 2007 when he declared that we “lost” the war in Iraq.
Here’s some input from a retarded, starry-eyed Obamabot:
“I came down to support Obama. He’s such a refreshing change,” said Parris Lane, 50, who waved a small American flag and chanted Obama’s name in response to the protesters. “We have someone really smart in charge, who makes everyone feel like part of things.”
Lane is one of those idiots who blindly follows a corrupt, socialist, charismatic empty suit. I bet he’s got one of those halo-effect Newsweek Obama photos on his nightstand. That’s the type of voter that flooded the ACORN registrations for Dear Leader.
We are now spiraling into a 9 trillion dollar deficit which will burden generations into the next century. Malevolent countries around the world including Iran, North Korea, and China recognize a milksop when they see one.
How’s that change working for you?
