Those of you who wanted Harry Reid to get his back up? Well, you got your wish on today's Meet the Press (no video yet).
MR. GREGORY: Before you go, do you have any regrets about the way you have publicly battled with President Bush? Over the years you've called him a liar, a loser, and you've described him as "our worst president ever."
SEN. REID: I wrote a book and I said that in the book several times. David, I am who I am. I'm going to continue being who I am. I think you just have to call things the way you see them. I really do believe that President Bush is the worst president we've ever had. I think his efforts to destroy Social Security were very bad. That brought about one of those statements. I think as we've looked now at what's happened to the stock market, wouldn't that have been an awful thing to do, to privatize Social Security? Medicare, he's done, he's done his very best to destroy Medicare. Medicare, a wonderful program. Perfect? Of course not. But one of the best programs ever developed to take care of sick people. So...
I imagine Reid saying that in his usual dry way, and it sounds even more devastating.
And I'm starting to think the Repubs believe it themselves. I just took a spin to Freeperville to see if the Stormin' Mormon's remarks made the Freepers' heads explode, and came up with zippo. Ditto at Redstate. And to think just last year, they were to the point of wanting us hauled up for treason for even one critical word about Dear Leader.
