    REID"S BEHAVIOR

    Sherman Frederick, publisher of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, on Sunday called out Sen. Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, for what Mr. Frederick described as an attempt to bully his newspaper.

    "This newspaper traces its roots to before Las Vegas was Las Vegas," Mr. Frederick said in a column.

    "We've seen cattle ranches give way to railroads. We chronicled the construction of Hoover Dam. We reported on the first day of legalized gambling. The first hospital. The first school. The first church. We survived the mob, Howard Hughes, the Great Depression, several recessions, two world wars, dozens of news competitors and any number of two-bit politicians who couldn't stand scrutiny, much less criticism.

    "We're still here doing what we do for the people of Las Vegas and Nevada. So, let me assure you, if we weathered all of that, we can damn sure outlast the bully threats of Sen. Harry Reid.

    "On Wednesday, before he addressed a Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Reid joined the chamber's board members for a meet-'n'-greet and a photo. One of the last in line was the Review-Journal's director of advertising, Bob Brown, a hard-working Nevadan who toils every day on behalf of advertisers. He has nothing to do with news coverage or the opinion pages of the Review-Journal.

    Yet, as Bob shook hands with our senior U.S. senator in what should have been nothing but a gracious business setting, Reid said: 'I hope you go out of business.'

    "Later, in his public speech, Reid said he wanted to let everyone know that he wants the Review-Journal to continue selling advertising because the Las Vegas Sun is delivered inside the Review-Journal.

    "Such behavior cannot go unchallenged.

    "You could call Reid's remark ugly and be right. It certainly was boorish. Asinine? That goes without saying.

    "But to fully capture the magnitude of Reid's remark (and to stop him from doing the same thing to others) it must be called what it was - a full-on threat perpetrated by a bully who has forgotten that he was elected to office to protect Nevadans, not sound like he's shaking them down."

    Mr. Frederick added: "No citizen should expect this kind of behavior from a U.S. senator. It is certainly not becoming of a man who is the majority leader in the U.S. Senate. And it absolutely is not what anyone would expect from a man who now asks Nevadans to send him back to the Senate for a fifth term."

    Nevada Harry SUCKS!! I still find it hard to believe that we're members of the same church. The vast majority of local members here are pretty conservative. Hard to believe that Glenn Beck and Harry Reid go to the same church:eek: I guess that's why they call it free will.

    Good God man, what is up with the 'boycotting' craze launched by the Dems lately?

    I hope they don't know that this is only going to come back and bite them in the arse.
    The next elections should be exciting.
