Reid: House GOP ‘Kicking Dirt’ to Distract Nation With Obama Lawsuit

House Republican leaders are acting like one-time LA Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, “kicking dirt at the umpire” to distract the nation, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday morning.

The Nevada Democrat torched GOP leaders for pursuing “stunts” such as a lawsuit against President Barack Obama and for spending $3.3 million on the select Benghazi committee.

Reid, who also accused House Republicans of blocking a deal to fix the Department of Veterans Affairs, recalled Lasorda’s legendary fights with umpires, which he said were often stunts intended to distract from other problems on his team.

And he said GOP leaders are doing the same thing.
