    He's a buffoon who can't get his own caucus in order. The senate is a joke. And a big reason for it is Harry Reid!

    •  Reid has nothing to do (2+ / 0-)

      with the existence of filibuster rules.

      And the Dem caucus and the unwillingness to march lockstep is not Reid's fault.

      Nor is the fact that the Senate massively overrepresents small states, meaning that to get a majority, Dems have Senators from not so Dem friendly turf.

      I have my issues with Reid, but calling him a buffoon or laying the blame for all problems is very unfair.

      •  Is this the same Harry Reid? (0+ / 0-)

        That kept defending Joe scumbag Lieberman? The same Reid who said he had the votes for healthcare until he didn't? Reid sucks so bad! Reid needs to see what a real leader looks like, he needs to look no further than the speaker of the house! She gets it done!

      •  He could make the GOP actually filibuster (1+ / 0-)

        Reid, whom the DC pundit class often calls a master of parliamentary procedures, could have at least forced the Republicans to actually filibuster these bills, instead of using the faux filibuster AKA cloture.
