More accurately, CREATING them!
Reid “Kicks OFF” Senate Campaign:
“SEARCHLIGHT — U.S. Sen. Harry Reid launched his re-election campaign Monday with a sentimental send-off from his hometown of Searchlight, cheered on by more than 100 close supporters.”
““I’m not a big poll guy,” Reid said, dismissing surveys with a wave of his hand. “Everyone who knows me knows I have never paid attention to polls. The only poll that matters is the one on Election Day.””
“What about Tea Party conservatives who converged with up to 10,000 people in Searchlight on March 27 in the largest political protest rally in Nevada history with the movement calling for Reid’s defeat?”
“Reid said he understands why some are angry at government and Washington during an economic recession that cost people jobs and sent the home foreclosure rates skyrocketing.”
“But he expressed confusion about what the Tea Party movement wants when its members call for more liberty and freedom and cite the Constitution in denouncing what they see as an expansion of the federal government, including with health care reform.”
“The people who are really upset don’t really know why they’re upset,” Reid said.”
“What do they mean?” Reid said he wonders when they call for more liberty and freedom. “I’m happy to talk about issues.”
“They want things to be the way they used to be,” Reid said. “They will never be the way they used to be.”
Reid said he believes the Tea Party movement of conservatives, who mostly back Republicans, makes up a minority in Nevada and America.
“The vast majority of people don’t feel that way,” Reid said. “The vast majority of people want problems solved and that’s my business, solving problems.”

“By evening as the sunset kissed the low, rough hills, more than 50 RVs were camped on site. In the day, U.S. flags fluttered in the chill March air under a sunny sky as early arrivals chatted, walked dogs and shared snacks, offering plates of crackers, cookies and popcorn to next door RVers.”
