A speedy recovery to the two ladies.
Praise God, what a close call. Lord, may You be glorified for Your mercy!
Glad they are expected to recover. God bless!
Best wishes for a full recovery.
Speedy recover is in order, but is there any other news of importance . . . I just can’t stomach having any sympathy for Harry Reid under any circumstance.
Well rear ended just doesn’t leave much wiggle room. Way to often truckers think they are driving cars.
“Senator Reid should use the time to ponder quality of medical care. “
I’m sure they’ll have the best of care since congressmen don’t have to be bothered with that bag of crap that Nobama is trying to force on us.
I hope they get well soon. Bad accident with a semi - I wonder if a friend of Rahm or Pelosi was driving.
My family can personally vouch for the expert care the Virginia Spine Institute gives. We opted for them, even by having to go out of network. Worth every dime.
Wow, sounds like it could have ended very badly. Best wishes to the Reid ladies for a full and speedy recovery.
I really mean that. Not just as a way of showing we are not like the sick bastards on the left who wish death and disease on their political opponents and their families.
If our differences were only economics it would be easier. But this guy, on numerous occasions, has undermined our troops in the field. This makes it very difficult for me as well to be concerned for him. His wife, and particularly the kids, obviously yes.
Exactly. It’s called human decency.
“A speedy recovery to the two ladies.”
Agree. They’ve suffered enough hell being married to that infinite dolt - who could suck the personality out of a rock.
His wife suffered abroken back and neck. I wish them both well.
Third crash in the last two hours? That’s bad luck, I tell ya! Prayers going up for all the suffering celeblutards and their families!
