It appears that Sharron Angle’s star might be fading. She’s not going down without a fight, though, throwing punches at Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for being “personally responsible for what is happening in our nation,” and President Obama for not recognizing Nevada’s problems.
Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle on Friday denounced Majority Leader Harry Reid as a “desperate man” who was distorting her conservative record while ignoring a state that leads the nation in joblessness, foreclosures and bankruptcies.
A day after President Obama delivered a mocking indictment of her candidacy at a rally in Las Vegas, Angle accused the president and Reid of pushing billions of dollars in stimulus spending while Nevada struggles with “an economy that is a disaster.”
She called for repeal of the health care overhaul, lower taxes and disbanding federal agencies, including the Education Department, that she said had responsibilities that can be handled at the state level.
Ouch. The thing is, Angle seems to be of the mindset that liberals want to pay higher taxes and have everything from health care to the production of breakfast cereal be controlled at the highest level of government. This is patently ridiculous, and Barack Obama called her out on it.
