Harry Reid Calls Ted Cruz A “Schoolyard Bully” On Senate Floor…


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) called freshman GOP Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) a “schoolyard bully” during a contentious exchange Monday on the Senate floor.

The two senators bickered as Cruz rose to object to Reid’s motion to appoint conferees to a House-Senate budget committee.

Cruz said he was concerned that the conference report—which cannot be filibustered—would be used to raise the nation’s debt ceiling. He asked that Reid amend his motion to go to conference to make out of order any provisions raising taxes or raising the debt ceiling.

    What a crusty chickenschitt weenie that old farce dingy Harry is. Oh I nearly forgot , another elite B.O. azzkisser.

    • Hotnike

      When demoRATS have nothing else to say against their opponent they ATTACK the person. Sounds to me like you are the bully Reid.

      • Ed Orr

        Not being nasty when confronted with the truth would demonstrate that ding Harry would possess a semblance of honor. He has absolutely NONE, is a pariah and should be treated like the cur dogggg he is. How he has been able to continue to suck wind is beyond belief.

    • jong

      And after five years of breaking the law with no budget at all he wants to get nasty when someone suggests discussing it.

  • onecornpone

    GOOO Cruz missile… Turn their lawyering schemes right back on the progressive freaks.
    Show the weaselly RINOs how they should have been fighting this WAR on WE the People for the last four-plus years.

    Cruz is FEARLESS! I heard he was born in Canada, but with this attitude, no native Texan would deny he’s a son of The Lone Star State. Yipee-ki-o-ki-a!!!

    LOL… Poor ole sad sack Harry, is insulted as H3LL that he is forced to deal with this upstart Freshman Senator, who understands how the rules of the U.S. Senate can be used to thwart o-Bunghole’s pre-written script. I wonder how many hours Harry has to study his lines every night.

    Who do you think writes scuzzy Harry’s talking points, Axlegrease or Sunstein?

  • cae973

    so let me see if I got this right…The Scarecrow called someone a bully because they refused to be bamboozled by his usual b.s.

  • true patriot

    Harry Reid, Archdevil of the Senate, strikes again. Cruz is giving Reid his own medicine. Hey, Harry take your own medicine like a man. Or, are you just a mouse?

    • rennyangel2

      They are petrified of Cruz, so the attack is early and often. They are afraid of Rep. women so the press is on against Ayotte. Defend the both vigorously, so the left’s venom has an antidote.

      • onecornpone

        Ayotte deserves no defense from Constitutionalist.

        Like a freaking victim of Stockholm Syndrome, she has teamed up with Mc Loon & Prissy Sissy Lindsey, to play the role of their young token female used as the eyecandy of their goofy trio.

        Evidently Ayotte believed those two ole koots would give her credibility, but they will only use her, like they have Rubio, rendering her reputation tainted forevermore, which demonstrates she has the political instincts of a bleaping rock.

    • Dingbat36

      squeak, squeak

    • Bigboy1942

      Scrawny little pip-squeak! Between the two the is only one standup man….MR. CRUZ!!! Keep up the great work Ted!

    • 7papa7

      He got hit in the head to many times when he boxed. I know one thing for sure and that is if the republicans regain control of the senate, I want Cruz to be the top man, under the VP of course. Since brain dead Harry hates Reid so much you know Cruz has to be great.


    That’s like the pot calling the kettle black. If Cruz is a schoolyard bully. That must make Harry Reid a juvenile delinquent punk. When democrats go into brain fart mode, which is quite often. The only thing they can think of is to resort to name calling. Harry Reid use to be a boxer in his juvenile delinquent days. Looks like to me he’s still getting his butt kicked.

    • Bud

      Lets hope so maybe the stupid idiots in Nevada will get smart and send this dumb ass back home for good but I am not going to hold my breath on this why he was relected tells u the mentality of the people in Nevada…STUPID!!!!

          Absolutely ,voter fraud.

        • Bob Miller

          Watch that communist SEIU people. Reid was down 7 points the day before his last re-election. The Vegas union commie thugs fixed that.

    • Que Dub

    • me

      McCain, fienstien are right up there too. All part of the royalty which has come to power in congress. Please voters, get rid of it.

  • Kenny_Ray

    Reid is apuppetof Obama and therefore a Marxist. It’s way past his time to leave the Senate. Wouldn’t shed a tear if he was no longer there.

    • Laraine Walker

      REID Is a nutcase fool..bully liar….

    • me

      He almost lost his last election. too bad it won’t be in “12”.

      • ed shick

        He would have lost if it was not for ether Key or Rory reid being over Board of Elections ,, His family controlls Nevada!! After 45years in politics he has enough to retire , he could then go to church!

  • doug63

  • Que Dub

    Now, now, hay-wee weed!!! Go home and take your medicine, and go to bed!!

    • Bud

  • Laraine Walker

    HAHAHAHA who is a bigger bully then REID? or PELOSCI, or HILLARY OR OBAMA?? REALLY…

  • rennyangel2

    The biggest bully in the Sen. is Reid himself.

    Defeat him and his legions of evil by calling the sen. on the immig “reform” krap and say VOTE NO. Join Numbers USA for free and send free faxes that say VOTE NO.

    Give Reid and ozero another leg. defeat. The bill in in trouble: do it now.

  • sean murry

    The biggest school bully is Ried we have enough people here.

  • Goodforall

    Reid has nothing on anybody-he has bullied his way around for years. This contentious little weasel will stop at nothing to get his way. Good for Ted Cruz-he is one of the few with any cahonies that will stand up to this little man.

  • BobinCA

    We need more schoolyard bullies if we plan to keep this country free. I’m tired of feeling like the one being bullied for standing up for our rights, flag and God.

    • Bud

      There r more corrupt ass holes in Wash DC than those who believe in God Country Flag and our Constitution and it will never get better until we get Rightious God Fearing People in Government who will our government according to the. BIBLE like Abe Lincoln did when he was president and it was a no good SOB Democrat that killed him!! Wake up America the Drmocratic party is destroying this Country …Psalm 94:3!!

  • bob novak

    Yeah right Harry, like you and Piloshit didn’t bully America into forced health care. I love when the left has no ground to stand on, they immediately fall back on person attacks, name calling, next he’ll be crying on the Senate floor trying to get sympathy votes. What an ass.

  • Brian Paszczykowski

    Anyone that Reid calls a bully I want A LOT more of in OUR House.

  • Robalou01

    Speaking of school yard bullies, let’s ask good ‘ol Harry how he managed to “win” reelection his last time out

  • joepotato

    It sounds like the treasonous traitor running the senate is getting a little worried or maybe desperate. It’s amazing the people of NV put this weasel back in DC. What were they thinking?

    • vietnamvet1971

      What were they thinking? answer the liberal brain washed Looney voters do not think because the Liberals tell them what to think.

    • Silas Longshot

      Dirty Harry stays in power by the sheer force of massive labor union thuggery in NV. His NRA rating is BS, don’t know why he ‘rates’ so well. He probably bribed that endorsement.

  • me

    There is too much royalty in congress. His royal highness does not approve someone standing up against him.

  • vietnamvet1971

    Go School yard Bully give it to the “Lifers” in DC they deserve to be crying, and Reed calls people bullies. Harry Reed is Number # 1 BULLY!

  • me

    cruz and paul are good at standing up for the people. all reid can do is push for control of the people. hopefully in his reelection next time he will be defeated by a paul or cruz type. hopefully as ancient and senile as he is he will retire.

  • fred

    Here is to the Bullies who step up and try to protect us from some of the Officials we have

    elected to represent us. Cruz on Folks, glad he is in the boat with us !

  • Dingbat36

    Harry Reid is a prune faced idiot and if there are any “bullies” on the floor of the Senate, they are not on the right side of the aisle.

    Look in the mirror if you want to find a bully, Harry……..that is if you can stand the shock of what you see!!

    • Brenda L. Herbert

      Well there are some bullies on the right. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, bullyingthe newbies.

    • Washington22

      He looks as if a strong wind would blow him off his feet. They say that you can hear the crinkle of depends as he walks by you in the senate halls.

  • Silas Longshot

    Dirty Harry been hit with another Cruz ‘missile?’ Wah, Wah, poor Harry, what if you had to face a dozen more Cruz types in opposition? Would that we had that many more.

    • Brenda L. Herbert

      I love the fact that you can actually call a republican a Cruz missile., instead of the squeaking mice we have in congress and the senate. We haven’t had a Cruz Millie in there since Joe McCarthy.

  • Richard Schwartz

    Harry, since Cruz won’t bow down to you call him names. All you are is an old man who should be put out to pasture. You have convinced me you are not capable of handling job. Instead of working for good of country all you care about is politics. I am sick of hearing about you. Please fad into sunset and take your thieving kid with you. How many job bills have you tabled?

  • Babsan

    Says BULLY #1 what a joke this old evil minded jerk is.Cruz is 100% over this idiot

  • Black Rain

    Is that the skillet calling the frying pan black! What a joke.

  • paco12348

    I hope Cruze runs for President. People say he has no more experience than Obama did but that’s wrong. Look at his record. He dang sure is more qualified than a Community Organizer that believed he could organize the US with lies, lies and dam lies.

    • jb80538

      If Cruz does run, the dems will pick on the fact that he is inelligible as he was born in Canada.

      • Brenda L. Herbert

        What does it matter? Quote from HC.

    • Doug Rodrigues

      Cruz cannot run for President. He was born a Canadian. Of cours, Barack Obama was probably born a Kenyan, but two wrongs don’t make a right.

  • Alan Smith

    Freshman yes wussy no

  • Josephco

    When you don’t have the truth on your side there is nothing left but to resort to name calling.
    Shame on Reed and the rest of the Democrats.

  • Marc Lizotte

    A” school yard bully ” says the pro baby killer school yard pansy! lol

  • birdman8421

    Great comments all. Without fraudulent elections counted by his union goons, reid would have been “pasture-ized” long ago. It is astounding the “quality and intelligence” the left coast and Nevada send to run the govmint. Despite appearances, congress is government, not a freak show. Those westerners that did not get the memo, (WRASSLIN, American IDOL WERE ON), please, no more clowns!

  • lizaz

    It’s great!! You know when liberals start whining they are scared witless of a Conservative…..keep whining Harry……maybe your “constituents” will finally realize what a failure you are!!!

    • TLady62

      Yes! Ted Cruz is one of the few Statesmen on the Hill who is truly representing the citizens of Texas.

  • Brenda L. Herbert

    I would say that is the pot , calling the kettle black.

  • VanceJ

    Really ? LOL your a jerk you little wimp. Cruz whips you with both hands tied behind his back and he’s truthful which you never have been.

  • Bob Miller

    Hey harry, did ‘ya ever return the $82. BILLION you took from that obama stimulus thing? You know, the $82. BILLION that was allegedly for a high speed rail link from L.A. to Vegas that has not yet, nor will ever be built. By the way folks. Beware, high speed railroads. Guess who builds them? None other than G.E., (that G.E.) NBC, MSNBC, immelt, jobs czar, sweetheart deals in myanmar with offshore jobs.

  • Sonnyjelly1

    Poor Reid, being called down by very smart man. If you can’t take it reid, then get the hell out.

  • D’Bak61

    Gotta love Cruz. He sees the demoncrat agenda in every (thought to be shrewd) move of the Left and is not afraid to call them on it. In this case Dingy Harry had purely ‘intended consequences’ concerning the debt ceiling and tax hikes to come without a vote or even further ‘discussion.’

  • Janet

    Ted Cruz represents other states that can’t get their representatives to do what we want. I am from Virginia and I sent him a “thank you” e-mail. We need to swamp Harry Reid’s e-mail with complaints.

  • SweetThing2U

    Harry Reid goes nowhere without 6 body guards here in the USA! Yet our representatives in Benghazi, Lybia had no protection on Sept 11, 2012! Why is this senile old fart still in the Political Arena? I’ve never voted for him!

  • servant1jkb

    REALLY? Prince Harry has been the big bully for more years than I care to remember, but he doesn’t like to swallow his stuff does he?
    Mr. Cruz keep up the fight! When YOU know You are right, fight!

  • Lee

    PTL we need more Ted Cruz’s in the senate and fewer Harry Reid’s or Nancy Pelosie’s ,,Amen!

  • 2War Abn Vet

    When a newbie senator can strike such fear into the majority leader he must be on the right track.

  • BlueViolets

    As the kids used to say, “It takes one to know one”. However, in all fairness, I think Harry is the real bully.

  • Cindy Osmer Banks

    Senator Reid, is my Senator and I am embarrassed to say so. There are so many names he could be called, but the one that comes to mind is Obstructionist. His behavior borders on criminal, and he could care less about the people and this nation, and he has the nerve, to call Ted Cruz a name. I would just like to know what Harry Reid had done for this nation???

  • patriotrenegade

    Meet your next prez Ted Cruz. I like it. Rubio is a globalist in sheeps clothing.

  • donl

    Hey Harry, you old commie fart, go home while you still have one and take your butt-buddy with you.

  • James Maxwell

    Kind of funny to see the Bully of the Senate, Harry Reid, get shellacked by a freshman Senator
    from Texas who just kicked the bully in the gonads. Harry is upset because he has been
    schooled and sent to his room like a bully that just got his first bi*ch slap and he upset.
    Well whine away Harry because that is the first of many that is coming your way from others
    who are sick and tired of the abuse by the dimless bullys in the Congress and the white house.

  • davenewbry

    The REAL schoolyard bully is the senator from Nevada.

  • hedy

    we need to get that Gnome out of DC, he is such a nasty BASDARD, I think the Stroke hi had a few years ago fired his BREANS,
    Hi is the bully,

  • DollyT

    reid is going through his second childhood. Name callinf is so childish! Remember the chilish retort about “Sticks and stones may break my bones; but names can never hurt me!”

  • ginjit.dw

    Reid is a buffoon….enuf said..

  • raygun

    Maybe Ted can punch old Harry out, being that he is the playground bully. It’s time for old Harry to ride off into the sunset.

  • stonemike

    Yeah, this coming from an SOB who completely negates all Constitutional ‘checks and balances’ and openly breaks American law by refusing for four years to put forth a ‘mandatory budget”! Hopefully for decent Americans , a massive coronary is in the making! haaaa!

  • Fuzzy385

    Careful MR. Ried, we Texas don’t take kindly to those disrespecting our reps!!

  • Doug Rodrigues

    Ted Cruz should say that Harry Reid is nothing more than a propagandist for the subversive Democrats. That’s exactly what Reid is.

  • Michael Paciello

    Who is Harry Reed to call names. He is the Devils Partner, so he is one of the most hated politicians on the national level. Constituants vote him to hell where he belongs.



  • Tallfritz

    Harry Reid, as most liberals, is just a whiner… maybe a winer too, but definitely a whiner… When liberals have no political or reality-proven backing for their ideas, they resort to crying or attacking..

  • paco12348

    It’s about time someone had the guts to stand up to ol’ Harry. Harry needs to be toted out. He’s out of time and place.

    • Beedogs

      Tote him out on a rail, covered in tar and feathers.

  • George Wentzel

    Reid, you can eat $hit and howl at the moon. You’ll certainly accomplish more that way.

  • chief1937

    Can’t see Harry Reid having the ordasity to criticize any one given his record.

  • Beedogs

    Filthy Harry Reid – poster child for term limits.

  • J J

    Harry Reid is the main “schoolyard bully” on the senate floor!! He shows himself to be a despicable, angry little man who has no morals, no ethics, no values, no principles!!!

  • RMF

    harry reid has not gained the wisdom that age should bring…he’s still the weasel he has always been.

  • Hal

    Harry “little Boy” Reid is losing his sheep and cannot find them. He is just a bitter old,”spoiled” man who has had his way too long and the game is drawing to an end. Let him go back to Vagas and oversee a gambling operation.

  • Washington22

    I seriously wish that Harry Reid would meet his maker.

  • mamasview

    He is a good representative of “Little Man Syndrome”; small of stature and manages to gain power that he uses to beat others into submission by proxy.
