What is the most urgent problem our nation faces? Could it be our declining military? The threat of Islamic terrorism? Could it be the run away deficit? Could it be the ticking debt time bomb?
No, Harry Reid and John McCain know what is really important.
From The Hill:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday said the Nevada attorney general should investigate the controversial split decision that cost boxing great Manny Pacquiao his WBO welterweight title.
Reid said an inquiry is needed to quell the uproar following the fight, but that he did not suspect anything “untoward,” such as bribery of the judges.
The Nevada Democrat has a strong relationship with Pacquiao, who campaigned with the Democratic leader in the final days of his difficult 2010 reelection campaign.
Reid later returned the favor by inviting Pacquiao to the Senate at the beginning of last year during the boxer’s trip to Washington, D.C.
Pressed by a Nevada reporter, Reid said Pacquiao should have been declared the winner in Saturday night’s tilt with Timothy Bradley in Las Vegas.
“From all the reports that I’ve seen by people on the outside who saw the fight, who attempted to be fair and judge the fight, Pacquiao won the fight,” said Reid, a former member of the Nevada Athletic Commission who used to judge boxing matches.
Bob Arum, the promoter for both Pacquiao and Bradley, has formally asked for the state attorney general to conduct a probe, arguing it is necessary to answer fans’ doubts about the judging process. The Associated Press, which scored the fight, concluded Pacquiao won easily.
“Our attorney general is a wonderful woman. She’ll do her best. I feel confident there’s been nothing untoward, but if an investigation makes everyone feel better, do the investigation,” Reid told reporters.
John McCain tweeted his support for Harry Reid’s call earlier today.
If you want to know why our nation is in trouble, here is the answer.
We are a nation that is run by idiots like Harry Reid and John McCain. In fact, the two of them would have to have a massive IQ infusion to simply rise to the level of idiots.
The Senate has not passed a budget in almost 1200 days. We have an out of control deficit and our debt is a bomb that is going to explode and destroy our economy and possibly our nation.
What are these two fools concerned about?
They are concerned about a boxing match.
Who the hell cares? I don’t.
I care about my nation. I care about freedom and liberty that are being eroded in this nation. I care about the economy and the decisions these two morons are making that will impact my children and ultimately their children.
These two are too incompetent to make any decision of any greater significance that what is for dinner.
Plato once said that if we were not involved in politics, we should be prepared to be governed by our inferiors.
Plato was wrong. We are involved and we are still governed by our inferiors.
I dunno -- it might be better for us if they're distracted with boxing stats than if they were passing some new economy-strangling legislation.
And, they certainly don't want to talk about passing a budget, personally painful to them! Or, speak of cutting spending, excruciatingly painful!
Yep, might as well investigate a boxing match. Waste time till after the election. Then, go on vacation!
Both men have obviously reached the stage of senility and should be put out to pasture.
Do you think we can give McCain back to the Viet Cong?
Sadly, we MUST add Mitt Romney to this List of Idiots."
I just watched a clip from today or yesterday of Romney saying IF he is elected he will work to "balance" the Federal Budget within Eight to TEN YEARS!!!
In other words, Romney has No Intention of ending our escalating National DEBT during EITHER of his 2 terms as president if he is elected.
Folks, THIS is why regardless of who the next president is, only conservatives in the House and Senate will be able to send only those Bills to any president ending budget deficits and beginning the retirement of our National Debt!
Folks, Romney STILL needs smacked upside his progressively liberal HEAD!
p.s. Oh yeah, Romney also continues to say he will replace Obamacare with His OWN National Healthcare Bill
The markets won't give Romney eight to ten years. He'll be lucky if he gets 3 years to get on the right track. He'll try to bring Chinese factories to the U.S., but it will probably be too little, too late. Historically, Republicans have increased deficit spending to grow the economy. He may not have that option. Obama already spent all his money. A global deflationary trend is starting and could force the Fed to print up too much money here in the U.S. and result in a global deflationary spiral and hyper-inflation in the U.S. This could be well underway by Jan. 21st.
History also shows that decreasing taxes leads to increased government revenues. If there is a deficit created, it is because spending has exceeded the revenues. Historically, the more-liberal democraps have outspent republicans by a large margin, and have actually created larger deficits when a republican president such as Reagan increased the revenues.
Romney cannot bring Chinese factory workers to the U.S. -- the liberals will not allow them to work cheaper here, so the effort would serve no purpose.
The fed has already printed up too much money trying to "stimulate" the economy, but it doesn't work in the long run because you have to steal from the future or from other citizens to fund each and every stimulus attempt. The idea is to fool people into a false sense of security, much like Obummer and the liberals keep trying to convince everyone how wonderful things are.
OMG I have no idea about this stupid fight and don't care. I care people have work. I care that my home is worthless and I can't sell or afford to stay. I care about the military because Obama has striped it and we are basically unprotected for the biggest threat islam. Immigration is out of control, spending out of control. Obama out of control, the EPA totally out of control, the constitution is being assaulted everyday Obama is in office. Millions of things but not ever a damn fight.
You have got to be kidding? Is this for real or are you trying to rile us up? They can't really be valuable spending time on such a thing - wait maybe that's a good thing afterall, that means they will be busy and can't do more harm to our country.
