Trey Gowdy mocks Harry Reid’s denial: ‘I didn’t think Mormons used drugs’

U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., slammed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid during a radio interview Friday in which he said of the Nevada Democrat, “I didn’t think Mormons used drugs.”

The host of the Mike Gallagher Radio Show brought up Reid’s recent statements claiming that the Affordable Care Act would be pretty much a non-issue during the 2014 midterm elections.

That’s when Gowdy made the quip about Mormons not doing drugs adding, “We have a majority leader who is manifesting several the things Sigmund Freud warned us about, that is projection and denial on an epic scale.”

He attributed it to Reid’s lengthy tenure in the Senate.

“I think the longer you stay in Congress, the more detached you come from reality,” he said.

    Harry Greed needs to be put out to pasture. I truly believe he is losing his faculties and ability to be in any position of power.

    • lovinspoonful

      I believe he has already lost them and should have been put out a long time ago. The founding fathers did not intend being a member of Congess to be a lifetime career.

        Agreed.. and they gave us a way to prevent that from happening.. We don’t use it effectively

        When people talk about throwing the bums out.. they must mean someone else’s bum, because more often than not, they vote to keep their own bum..

        I’ve got Bill Posey as a US Rep, he’s not bad, but this will be the last time I vote for him..He’s starting to get comfortable in DC

        • cumiadom

          When that happens is better to try a new one even if he/she is unknown.

          • Ralph Sampson

            YES, but sometimes those unknowns turn out to be Obama.

        • JeremiahtpoG

          I actually have a very good Senator, that has been there a long time, not every incumbent is bad, however term limits wouldn’t bother me either

      • Michael Phipps

        Too bad there wasn’t an effective enough candidate to do that in 2010. Same in Ohio here in 2012 to replace Sherrod Brown.

        • Juan Motie

          There was an effective enough candidate in 2010. Apparently you are unaware of the fact that the republican candidate in 2010 in nevada was sold-out by traitorous establishment RINO republicans. These included mayors, a former gov.’s wife and a whole host of crony capitalist and casino owners. They went so far as to form a political action committee calling themselves “republicans for reid” (the website is still available for viewing) and spending massive amounts of money and time ensuring media coverage of their traitorous actions to their own party and candidate. So if you want to place the blame for the loss in nevada in 2010 put squarely on these establishment pieces of garbage who call themselves republicans, but in reality are nothing but extreme radical fascist left-wing democrat party of death drones.

            Then they have to gall to complain….the idiots that only care about Party or ideology always vote for these PsOS, then kvetch about the corruption. If they’re not willing to vote out the corrupt politicians–of ALL KINDS–then, STHU and live with their stupidity.

      • mobilebay

        Ah, but the members of Congress do. As long as they can belly up to the public trough, they will fight to stay. What other “job” pays so many dividends? It’s not the salaries they get, it’s the benefits that add up to many times the salaries. It’s a license to steal….

        • lovinspoonful

          It is also the glory they seek to gain from That’s why Reid keeps harping on Obamacare and how wonderful it is. It is his one claim to fame and many people give it to them. Same with Pelosi.

      • sputnik1

        Parasitic leeches. Harry Greed, John “Songbird” McShame, Lindsey Gramesty, Dianne Frankenstein, Chuck the schmuck Schumer, Nancy Piglosi and all the other corrupt Demonrats and RINOS should all be ousted!! Term limits for all.

    • pupster40

      What the heck, might as well ruin a perfectly good pasture too.

    • pen44

      Both Reid AND Pelosi!!!!! FrankenFeinstein & Boxer should follow. They’re greed & corruption is way beyond the Pale…..

      • lovinspoonful

        We also have Watters, Rangel, Schumer, Franken, Wasserman-Schulz, Sheila Lee Jackson, to name a few.

        • pen44

          I know,I know…..the list goes on&on&on&on……..

    • NoCrud

      “Harry Greed” ▬ how appropriate…!

  • diana harrell

    Harry’s greed knows no limits……Why is it the democrats think they are so far above the law? He goes from having 1 million to over 10 million. Explain that jump Harry you thief. He is another reason we need term limits for all politicians.

    • http://buzzc.proboards.com/ Julius B. Carey

      Just like NoBama started with $1.5 Mil or so and now has $13 Million on a $400k salary per annum??? They’re both greedy thieves…

    • David Taylor

      Because Senator Reid is above the law. This may be the ultimate reason to vote Republican, or vote anything but Democrat. When a Republican office holder breaks the law or does anything questionable, the media falls on them, the law is applied. Why? Because no man is above the law, no matter what office they hold. When a Democrat breaks the law, the media is silent, law enforcement tip-toes around him or her. Why? Because they are not men, they are like unto gods, Ascended Masters of Fascism, the Self Chosen Anointed Ones. Democrat politicians have every reason to believe that they are, by definition, Good. Their actions define morality, their words define the truth. Jesus went from being God to being a man, to show empathy, sympathy and forgiveness. Through the machinations of our system as it exists today, Democrats go from being fellow human beings to demigods, with no empathy with we Mere Mortal Untermensch, pity and contempt replaces sympathy, and only selective forgiveness for the slave stock that serves their purpose. So vote Republican, or at least Third Party, across the board. The Democrats have given you no choice.

    • lovinspoonful

      Because he is alleged in to illegal donation money.

    • pen44

      FIRST, diana, he’s being investigated for giving one of his granddaughters a few thousand bucks from his campaign funds……a Christmas gift. Personal use of campaign funds is highly illegal…..that kind of thing was just one of the problems that took John Edwards down..and out.

  • CarolineJenkins

    I say Trey Gowdy for president!!!

    • Ed Richardson

      He would be much more effective as Speaker.

      • Laura Smith

        Attorney General would be even better

      • lovinspoonful

        House speaker or attorney general. Unlike the one in that position now Gowdy knows the law and would apply it.

        • NoCrud

          Either one would be good jobs for Gowdy BUT if he is chosen the Attorney General, that would leave a House seat up for grabs and the risk of losing it to a Democrat is too great UNLESS we load the House with good Republicans.

      • Jody Hurt

        Actually, he would do better as a president!! Right now we need a strong leader and he is the best we have!!! Let Rubio or Cruz be speaker!!

        • http://buzzc.proboards.com/ Julius B. Carey

          Nope. Sarah simply must be top dog, PERIOD. Trey will for sure be a “someone” in her administration…

          • Robert Caleb Potter

            I agree. Nobody has given more for the cause than Sarah Palin and she has taken the heat and withstood it. I hear some discount her and say ‘the media will eat her lunch.’ Does that mean we will let them? Does that mean the media now chooses our candidates? Sarah would be a STRONG candidate against Hillery because she will neutralize the phoney war on women debate and get votes from those who are obsessed about a woman being President. Sarah was a good Governor and will make a fantastic President precisely because she is regular people. The team is deep and I see Bolton as Sec of State, Gingrich at the UN, Gowdy as AttorneyGeneral and Romney as SecDef. The EPA and many other agencies need to either be abolished or dramatically cut. With Sarah as President it will not matter who manages them, Sarah will surely choose wisely.

        • Ed Richardson

          Not possible they are in the senate.

          • lovinspoonful

            Gowdy is a member of the House.

        • iitywybad

          Rubio and Cruz are Senators and can not be Speaker of the House!

        • lovinspoonful

          We need him in the legislative branch. President can come later.

          • lovinspoonful

            He can clean up the DOJ from Holder’s mess.

        • NoCrud

          They cannot be because they are in the Senate and the House Speaker’s position is in line for the presidency. Only a Natural Born Citizen should be Speaker.

          • Steven Childs

            An NBC is not necessary to be Speaker. If a Non-Naïve Born Citizen were to occupy the position, they would just skip over and proceed to the next one in line, which would be the Pres. Pro Tem of the Senate (Longest serving member).

    • Myrtle Linder

      Trey Gowdy – Ted Cruz for president

      They show great promise!!

    • curmudgeon

      Or Attorney General.

  • Larry Miller

    Harry Reid is demented, or has Alzheimer’s like Pelosi & Feinstein.

    • lovinspoonful

      I like to think of it as “selective memory”.

      • Ed Richardson

        So do his fellow democraps.

      • David Taylor

        That’s what my wife is always accusing me of.

  • whadayakiddinme

    Reid is a nasty, lying criminal. Get rid of him.

    • MinistryofFear

      Easier said than done

      • sputnik1

        Flip the Senate in November. At least we can shut him up till we can get rid of him.

        • MinistryofFear

          Don’t get me wrong. I think Reid is a POS, but if you think he’ll shut up think again. Piglousys been out of the leadership for two years but she still shoots her mouth off and gets press. Reid has hitched his career to Dumbo Ears in the WH and Reid will go down swinging. BTW s***s like McCain and McConell think the Senate is an imperial club where all the members are Demi-gods and are above criticism. Remember when Reid those baseless accusations about Romney not paying taxes? Not one Republican senator challenged Reid to produce the evidence.

          • NoCrud

            Good points…

      • NoCrud

        Saying it is the first phase of gathering people of like mind and doing something about it.

        There are too many who say nothing except to denigrate those who do at least say something.

  • Amanda Flemett

    It is nice to see politicians publicly coming out in opposition against those who are in power. Gowdy has been speaking up lately along with Cruz, Lee, and Paul. I hope the trend continues so that people can have an actual choice.

    • NoCrud

      I hope that trend more than continues. I hope it increases and even entices some RINOs to see the error of their ways as they contemplate the way their constituents are older and wiser and question whether RINOs should stay in office come election day. I hope this is just the beginning of a tidal wave of indignation that only wants to swamp the Left and wash them away.

  • Richard G. Shuster

    Harry Reid gives any group a bad name…. :-)
    Doubt he’s much of a Mormon, or anything else worthwhile.

  • Annie

    That because Harry is hoping his union goons and those across the country will step up and do some more of their cheating and messing with electronic voting machines.

  • FlyoverCountry

    Greed and power for hunger can become evil in excess. I present to you Harry Reid…an “I can do anything I want and you can’t do anything about it” individual.

    • lovinspoonful

      Right alongside Obama. That’s Obama’s attitude “I’m the president and I can do whatever I want to do.”

      • NoCrud

        “… Period.”

  • Terra Pennington

    I will not vote Democrat in 2014 or 2016…

    • Doug

      What about 2024?

    • lovinspoonful

      I haven’t for a long time.

    • NoCrud

      I never have voted Democrat and I find it leaves me sleeping much better every night. I do not fall in the category of those who look back with some regret, at least not in this area.
