On Wednesday Nevada Senator Harry Reid said something that all Republicans can understand. When asked about the Republican Presidential field, Reid said that he thinks “they’re all losers.” Interestingly enough, at about the same time, every Republican in America would have said the same thing of Harry Reid had they been asked. The curmudgeonly senior Senator from Nevada has long been a thorn in the side of conservatives and his penchant for saying rude, wrong and abrasive things doesn’t seem to be diminishing with age.
John Harwood: Are you entirely comfortable with Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee.
Harry Reid: Absolutely, I love the way she answers almost everything.
John Harwood: Will there be a Democratic race, should there be one?
Harry Reid: Primaries, I don’t think they help, especially when you are as motivated as Hillary… I love Joe Biden, I could never say a bad word about him, he is a wonderful leader.
John Harwood: Would you advise him not to challenge her?
Harry Reid: No. He’s been around a long time without my advice.
John Harwood: How do you see the Republican fight? Who is the Republican nominee likely to be.
Harry Reid: I don’t really care, I think they’re all losers.
This is why no one (on the left or the right) will ever miss Harry Reid in Washington, D.C. or anywhere else for that matter. He is a crude, corrupt and immoral man who is only ever out for himself. Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post nails the problem with Harry Reid’s lack of moral fiber –
How about with the fact that this all-means-justify-the-ends logic — assuming the end is your desired one — is absolutely toxic for politics and, more importantly, democracy. If you can lie — or, at a minimum, mislead based on scant information or rumor — then anything is justified in pursuit of winning. This sort of “the winners make the rules” approach is part of the broader partisan problem facing Washington and the polarization afflicting the nation more broadly. There is no trust between the two parties because they believe — and have some real justification for believing — that the other side will say and do literally anything to win.
