    Nevada Senate Face-Off

    LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Democratic Senator Harry Reid and Republican Sharon Angle faced off in their one and only televised debate Thursday night, both throwing punches.

    The two disagree on virtually everything.

    Never calling his opponent by name, Reid referred to Angle as "extreme" on more than one occasion. She hit back hard, ripping on Reid for letting other countries join the federal law suit against Arizona's tough anti-illegal immigration law. "Senator Reid, you've allowed 11 foreign countries dictate our immigration laws. That's just nuts".

    Angle attacked Reid on the war, saying he owed an apology to the troops, "When you said the war was lost and General Petraus was dishonest, you demoralized our troops and endanged them, you need to apologize to them." Reid was cool in his explanation. The soft spoken Senator who has been endorsed by Veterans of Foreign Wars said his statement was that "the war can not be won just militarily, but economically and diplomatically". He called the surge "the right thing to do".

    I've read Angle mopped the floor with Reid; wouldn't mind hearing from Libs who saw it. And his comments (in bold) go beyond unbelievable. Looking for the vid of the debate but can't find it.

    Wait, him saying this war is not just a military issue is somehow ridiculous?

    Will watch some of it before I go in to work.
    edit: omg they cloned Mr. Rogers and made him a debate moderator.

    edit: LOL
    Angle: (on health care) "...we need the government to get out of healthcare so we can have tort reform."

    Tort reform is government intervention.

    Re: Nevada Senate Face-Off

    20 minutes in and i've got to head out.
    Early impressions:
    -Both of these people are lousy speakers and it's so boring to listen to them.
    -Angle is focused entirely on attacking Reid.
    -Reid is mostly trying to explain how Angle is lying and how some of the things he's done have helped.
    -Angle has two straight-up lies so far.
    ---1) Reid is allowing 11 foreign nations to dictate our immigration policy. (reality: 11 nations are filing briefs in the Arizona immigration case. that's not dictating and Reid isn't in charge of that decision anyway)
    ---2) Reid voted to "give social security benefits and tax cuts to illegal aliens" (reality: Horse****. Illegals who are later granted legal work status were eligible to receive credit for social security taxes already paid using a false SSN. Reid voted to uphold this system. His vote wouldn't give social security benefits to anyone. Calling it a "special tax break" is also silly, as it's just giving people credit for taxes they already paid.)

    Tort reform is government intervention...
    ...in the justice system, as opposed to the health system.

    Re: Nevada Senate Face-Off

    Neither are cunning linguists, but I agree with the general consensus. Reid had a lot to defend and didn't do very well.

    What I found sickening and what Angle should have hammered him on was his telling folks they should drop into his office to get their life/costs straight. He did it more than once, and that in a mere 50 minutes.

    Must have been later on. I gave up at about 20-25 minutes, couldn't stand listening to either of them any longer.
