If Obama vomited on the floor ...

"Reid, Pelosi, and the CBC, would be fighting each other for the honor to LICK IT UP! LERNER would lick it up too but she will not go to prison for him. She will eventually talk and when she does, she's taking down the whole corrupt Democrat Party with her, FOREVER!"


So goes the partial quote of a comment by Steven Chavez in reaction to a piece about Senator Harry Reid's latest race baiting example while tackling a tough progressive issue, the recent Supreme Court decision regarding Hobby Lobby. The full quote:
HARRY is nothing but a crooked "VEGAS CRAP DEALER!" Every roll of his tongue stinks like Bull Crap just like his Boss, "The Chicago BullS-HITTER!" 
DID REID get Romney's tax info from Obama via Lerner/Shulman? 
IF OBAMA VOMITED on the floor, Reid, Pelosi, and the CBC, would be fighting each other for the honor to LICK IT UP! LERNER would lick it up too but she will not go to prison for him. She will eventually talk and when she does, she's taking down the whole corrupt Democrat Party with her, FOREVER!
The article is actually a The Daily Caller reaction to a Las Vegas Review-Journal Editorial
As The Daily Caller relates:
The trigger for the Review-Journal was a comment Reid made earlier this week after the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision. 
In a 5-4 decision, the Court sided with Hobby Lobby, allowing it and other “closely-held” corporations to skirt the Obamacare mandate that requires companies to provide health insurance plans to their employees that contain coverage for certain contraceptives. Companies like Hobby Lobby can now cite their religious principles in deciding to not provide coverage for those contraceptives. 
An angry Reid criticized the decision, saying, “The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determined by the virtues of five white men.” 
The issue there is that only four of the justices that sided with Hobby Lobby are white. The fifth justice was Clarence Thomas, who is black.
In an even more humorous piece Daily Caller asserts Sen, Reid evidently forgot that Justice Thomas is black:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is so angry over the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in the Hobby Lobby contraception case last week that he apparently forgot Justice Clarence Thomas is black. 
The Nevada Democrat lamented the court’s ruling which allows Hobby Lobby and other for-profit companies with religious objections to certain forms of contraception to avoid providing them to employees in health insurance plans mandated under Obamacare.
Hobby Lobby approves of 16 out of 20 forms of contraception that have been approved by the FDA. 
“People are going to have to walk down here and vote, and if they vote with the five men on the Supreme Court, I think it’s — they’re going to have — be treated unfavorably come November with the elections,” Reid told reporters on Tuesday, according to ABC.
The Senate will act soon to “ensure that women’s lives are not determined by virtue of five white men,” Reid added. 
But his reference to “five white men” was off by 20 percent. 
Only four of the male justices who sided with Hobby Lobby — John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy — are white. The other — Clarence Thomas — is black.
Sen. Reid may be going slowly senile:



As the Las Vegas Review-Journal put it:
Harry Reid is the da Vinci of distraction. The moment any scandal, policy failure or political defeat crashes down on him — and there have been plenty the past few years — the Senate majority leader unleashes outrageous rhetoric that’s better suited for a sandbox than what once passed for the world’s greatest deliberative body. Worse, the Nevada Democrat has become especially fond of slinging race cards just to crank up the outrage. 
Last week, Sen. Reid was in rare form following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn part of the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate. The 5-4 ruling declared that closely held for-profit businesses, such as craft retailer Hobby Lobby, do not have to provide some forms of birth control to female employees if doing so violates the owners’ religious beliefs. Sen. Reid eviscerated the decision. “The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determined by virtue of five white men,” Sen. Reid said. 
That Sen. Reid would inject race into criticism of a ruling with gender-based ramifications was bad enough. What made the comment far worse, however, was that it was completely false. Justice Clarence Thomas, who happens to be black, sided with the court’s majority in the Hobby Lobby case. 
... We thought the 2008 election of Barack Obama as president was supposed to herald an age of post-racial politics. So much for hope and change. Quit the race-baiting already, Sen. Reid. You’re clearly colorblind — in all the wrong ways.
Then of course there is this quote flying around attributed to Obama, and the pretense that he said it recently "No, you can't deny women their basic rights and pretend it's about your "religious freedom". If you don't like birth control, don't use it. Religious freedom doesn't mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs."

True to form, the progressive socialists are still pretending he said it, and pretending it applies to the Hobby Lobby decision, even though it's been documented as a false attribution as early as 2012.
The 2012 campaign isn’t the first to be marked by rumors and distortions. But it’s already setting new land-speed records for the time it takes a tossed-off comment or flat-out falsehood to develop into a “fact” accepted by half the political world. The “report” that Obama would be traveling to Paris to hold a European fundraiser on the Fourth of July was just the latest example of partisan lying. 
Every time it happens, supporters of the rumor’s target bemoan the gullibility of their partisan counterparts. How could anyone think Obama was born in Kenya?! Does anyone really believe Romney doesn’t know what a doughnut is?! 
The reason distorted or fabricated tales about political candidates spread so quickly, of course, is because people want to believe the very worst about their opponents. They also want to believe the very best about their own candidates. That appears to be why a lie about Obama became a viral sensation among his own supporters this year
It's sad really, the lengths the progressive socialists will go to, defending their immorality and vice, of course as The Daily Caller points out, they are even trying to harvest political points from this obvious racist gaff by Reid:
In his comments Tuesday, Reid challenged Republican senators to cast a vote in favor of a legislative fix that he and other Democrats will soon be pushing. A vote against the proposal, claims Reid, will hurt the GOP at the polls in November. 
The effort, which will be led by Democratic U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, will seek to fill the “contraceptive coverage gap” for women whose companies, citing religious principles, choose not to provide coverage for contraceptives. 
Reid has said that the Senate will act “in coming weeks.” 
Reid has made insensitive remarks about race in the past. He apologized for comments he made during the 2008 presidential campaign when he said that then-Senator Obama being “light-skinned” in appearance and “with no Negro dialect” would benefit him in the election.
So is my new "friend" Steven Chavez, If Obama vomited on the floor ... Reid, Pelosi, and the CBC, would be fighting each other for the honor to LICK IT UP! ?

Or have I been eating paint chips again?
