    I do not understand why there is so much ill will toward Harry Reid on this site. Do people here not understand that Harry Reid has repeatedly saved us from an Obama/Republican "Grand Bargain" that would cut Social Security and Medicare? Instead of rewarding his actions there, Daily Kos posters attack him harshly and call for his ouster just because he refused to pass filibuster reform which would be useless currently for anything except judicial votes, ambassadorship votes, and Cabinet votes. Do the people calling for Harry Reid to be kicked out as Majority Leader honestly believe that Dick Durbin would actually fight against Obama to defend Social Security and Medicare. Durbin is one of Obama's point men in the Senate for the "Grand Bargain", for crying out loud!

    I am very disappointed by the lack of gratefulness and the tunnel vision being displayed by too many posters here.
