Fantasist Harry Reid talks out of his arse, markets react…
At a press conference, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declares, “We don’t have a lot of leeway on time,” Reid told reporters in the Capitol. “One of the individuals in the caucus today talked about a major insurance company — a major insurance company — one with a name that everyone knows that’s on the verge of going bankrupt. That’s what this is all about.”
When pressed for specifics, Reid’s office insisted that the Senate Majority Leader was speaking generally, and not about a specific insurance company.
Clearly, though, his words lead one to beleive that he was speaking of a sepcific, large, well known insurance company.
So who is full of it? Harry Reid, or his staff? Or both?
The result? The following day the markets suffer, insurance stocks tank, and Metlife issues a statement attempting to assure people that Reid was not talking about that company.
What a man!
