Ed Morrissey calls it “despicable and grossly irresponsible,” while Jeff Goldstein predicts there will be a harsh backlash against Reid’s tactics:
The arrogance of power can be truly astonishing to watch. Harry Reid hasn’t passed a budget in nearly four years, and has obstructed every meaningful effort to reduce the out-of-control federal deficit. For Reid — a man who has notoriously benefitted from corrupt land deals in his home state of Nevada — to be lecturing Mitt Romney on financial propriety is every bit as outrageous as Obama’s “you didn’t build that.”
UPDATE: People are wondering why I haven’t said anything about the “Harry Reid pederasty” scandal. A month or so ago, a person who had blogged at Ace of Spades HQ called my office and said, “Harry Reid is the Jerry Sandusky of Nevada!”
Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain. But I mean, gee whiz, that is a story you should be writing.
