Harry Reid Calls All Of The 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates Losers

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) delivered some devastating straight talk when he called the entire 2016 Republican presidential field losers.

Video:

In an interview with CNBC, Sen. Reid (D-NV) was asked who the Republican nominee was going to be, and he answered, You know, I don’t really care. I think they’re all losers.”

The Republican Party has been proclaiming for years that they have a “deep bench,” but a look at all of their presidential candidates reveals a group that contains fatal flaws. Jeb Bush has been out of office for a long time, and he is saddled with a last name that is synonymous with political failure. Scott Walker is being dogged by one of the worst economic records in the country. Walker’s only claim to fame is union busting. Rand Paul is too libertarian for the Republican Party and too Republican to be elected president. Ted Cruz is best known for shutting down the government. Marco Rubio has a closet full of personal finance scandals, and his initial support for immigration reform doomed his chances of winning the Republican nomination.

There isn’t a single candidate in the Republican field who Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be the favored on paper to beat. That doesn’t mean that Clinton will win. What it means is that Republicans lack the complete candidate that can go toe to toe with the likely Democratic nominee from day one of the campaign.

It is rare to see a politician be as bluntly honest as Reid was with his opinions. What Reid was suggesting is that any Republican presidential candidate will be a loser as long as they are stuck with their party’s anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-immigration, and anti-middle class agenda.

The positions of the Republican Party are extremely unpopular. It doesn’t matter who the Republicans nominate if that person will be forced to carry the flag for positions that most Americans do not support.

Republicans have put together a team of losers, but that won’t stop them from doing everything that they can to defeat Hillary Clinton.

  1. This is a great article by Politicus. It is simple and blunt and describes perfectly each of those ‘losers.’ You have to be a real sourpuss, negative personality to vote for a guy that is just known for union-busting, for example. Unfortunately we have a nation full of them.

  2. I Second the Notion: Those hapless bunch of candidates are LOSERS. Nothing to chose from on the Menu full of Sad Sacks, flip-floppers, hysterical gloom and doomers, and rehashed fried beans.

  3. BEWARE INTELLECTUAL SNOBBERY AND HUBRIS! Remember when we were convinced George W. Bush was too stupid to win? Any one of these could end up being our next President! Don’t be so smug, never let your guard down and above all, get off your asses and VOTE!

  4. I think recent history has shown that the majority of folks are “one issue” voters. If they are anti-abortion, they vote GOP. Or if they hate the IRS they vote GOP. Or if they hate the President because he’s the wrong colour, they vote GOP. Or if they hate the threat of effective gun control laws, they vote GOP. Or if they think the Bible should take precedence over the Constitution, they vote GOP.

    They don’t look at all the other harmful (harmful to them, that is) policies of the GOP, like getting rid of the ACA, or privatizing Social Security, or providing vouchers for Medicare etc. No indeed, if they are against any ONE of those items mentioned in the above paragraph, they’ll vote GOP.
    How do I know this? I hear it from several American family members. And most of them reside in red states……Forget the big picture, just concentrate on what you hate…..

  5. I’d say this is the result of years of expelling the moderates (RINO’s) from their party.

    Anyone with the least bit of a lick of sense is looked on askance.

    Today Dan Quayle seems intelligent in comparison. If trends continue, in 30 years Tez Crud will seem brilliant…

  6. No truer words have been spoken Harry. The rest of the world knows that the GOPT are losers. Actually, the GOPT has weakened our country very much in economics and spirit.

  7. “What Reid was suggesting is that any Republican presidential candidate will be a loser as long as they are stuck with their party’s anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-immigration, and anti-middle class agenda.” Excuse me Jason Easley, but that is not what the senator was suggesting. Did he tell you that or did you surmise? What Harry Reid said was that ALL the Republican candidates are losers, and that was not referring to their relative ability to beat Hillary. He was referring to the fact that they are, uh, LOSERS in the worst sense of that word. They are despicable people, period.

  8. I agree. Hate to see Harry go, think we need him yet. The guy ready to step into his shoes, give me reason to fear. He is to willing to agree with thugs for me.
