We’re pretty sure that New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, an avowed backer of the Mitt Romney campaign, will not like what Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada), the Senate Majority leader, had to say about his franchise while recently speaking on the Senate floor.
As everyone in the world seemingly must these days, Senator Reid then turned his attention to the New York Jets.
“Coach [Rex] Ryan — he’s got a problem. He’s got three quarterbacks. [Mark] Sanchez, he’s got Tim Tebow, and he’s got a guy by the name of [Greg] McElroy. He can’t decide who their quarterback is going to be. That’s the same problem the Republicans are having. Romney’s gone, but he’s still in the background. Who is the quarterback, Mr. President? My friend talks about the trillions of dollars of debt. Mr. President, we just had an election. The people overwhelmingly know why we have this deficit.”
By the way, this isn’t the first time Senator Reid has used a sports angle to further his cause. In June, he was asked if Senator Mitch McConnell was waiting for Romney’s take on President Obama’s immigration order before he spoke about it. Reid’s response?
“That’s a clown question, bro.”
