Richard Cohen, you need to own the fact that that Harry Reid’s “Gutter Politics” are the next logical step in Democrat Progress.
Still, he is not some backbencher, but the Senate majority leader. He is the face of the Democratic Party in the Senate and the ally of President Obama. Yet, not a single Democrat has had the spine to rebuke Reid. The White House has been given the chance and explicitly ducked its duty. Other members of the Senate have run for cover. They fear Reid and, if truth be told, sort of like what he’s doing — constantly needling Romney, keeping him on the defensive about taxes and his insistence on releasing only two years of his returns.
Reid is a toad, a toad’s toad, and a toad stool par excellence. But he’s also what you get when you, Richard Cohen, of the purportedly free press in this country, have permitted Harry Reid to play Gollum to Obama’s Sauron for 3.5 years.
- We haven’t had a budget for north of three years. Why? Because Harry Reid hasn’t done his bloody job!
- We haven’t had as much as a vote in the Senate to repeal ObamaCare, despite repeated votes in favor of such in the house. Why? Because Harry Reid hasn’t done his bloody job!
- We have had the Executive run amok on issues such as Fast & Furious with impunity, because anyone with a clue knows that Harry Reid won’t do his bloody job, and hold an impeachment trial!
And you, Richard Cohen, have been a little altar boy in this cathedral of horrors. But now you want to notice some drop of gutter politics from Harry Reid amidst the flood.
Fall off the planet, Richard Cohen, in the manner of the useless git.
