Harry Reid in a press conference today:
As the pope has said, it’s a slaughter. Those are not Harry Reid ‘s words or Jack Reed’s words or some Democratic operative. They are the pope. The spiritual leader of more than a million people says to everyone that’s listening to his voice and he is — he presides over more than a billion people, and many more have great respect for him. And he is saying there’s a slaughter in Iraq. Those are his words. And nothing good is coming from Iraq.
The president should understand that it’s not just the Democratic Congress that is crying out for a change in direction. It’s the pope.
I can think of some other issues I’d like the Democratic Congress to take the pope’s lead on.
