    The Democratic Senate Caucus had the entire first term of Obama's presidency to EVALUATE THE PERFORMANCE of Harry Reid as the Majority Leader in the Senate, and they RE-ELECTED HIM AGAIN!! The only thing Harry Reid has demonstrated is his ability to use a bullshit argument that he doesn't have the numerical vote count to get critical legislation passed in the Senate, and he doesn't want to embarass his Republican FRIENDS by bringing up  said legislation only to have it defeated on the Senate floor.

    IMHO the Senate Democrats KNOW that Harry Reid is a weak pseudo-Republican in Democrat clothes who will do little to oppose critical Republican positions in the Senate. Hence they voted Reid in as Majority leader BOTH times to give them cover in dodging the need to declare their vote on controversal issues on the Senate floor, especially issues like gun control.

    If we want the Senate to start to move on the critical issues facing the nation forget writing petitions to Harry Reid - put the pressure on the members of the Senate Democrat Caucus to choose a NEW MAJORITY LEADER!! The combination of REID and BOEHNER are the bulwarks sustaining continued Republican obstruction, and are PREVENTING Washington from doing the nation's business. Let's get out the BIG NET SPOTLIGHTS and shine it directly on the members of the Democrat caucus and force them to commit to a recall/replacement for Harry Reid as Majority Leader. Let's GET BUSY!!
