Skip to comments.Reid: "I Welcome Every Opportunity to Work with our Republican Colleagues"
Posted on 11/10/2010 9:17:13 AM PST by rightistight
After narrowly beating Republican challenger Sharron Angle and waking up to see a landslide of anti-Democratic voting last Tuesday, Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid has declared, "I welcome every opportunity to work with our Republican colleagues." The statement comes as a 180 to the formerly anti-Republican Senator, who famously compared the GOP to those who supported slavery.
In a statement on his campaign website, Senator Reid explained how important it was to work together with Republicans, even though most of the legislation that the Senate has passed in the last two years have been down party lines:
"The message that voters throughout Nevada and all across the nation sent to Washington is that they want Democrats, Republicans and Independents to work together to find the common ground needed for real solutions and real progress...And I also welcome every opportunity to work with our Republican colleagues as we know the challenges that lie ahead of us know no political affiliation."
"Work together" from the man who said this last December:
"Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, 'slow down, stop everything, let's start over.' If you think you've heard these same excuses before, you're right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said 'slow down, it's too early, things aren't bad enough.'"

The notion that republicans would “work with” Dingy Harry is in a word, frightening.
Sorry Harry!! All deals are off!!!!
(Say this like Lois from the Family Guy, kinda laughing, and all nasally when you say it.)
Blow off weasel boy!
Lying sac of male bovine excrement! >:-(
He’s done everything he could possibly do (short of lining pubs against a wall and having at them with a machine gun ala Valentine’s Day Massacre) to marginalize the Republicans for the past 4 years, proudly! Claiming “they’re holding us up! they’re blocking this and that!” when the Republicans had NO power to affect any changes in any real way! “The Party of No”???
Dingy Harry and Nanzi, you’re about to find out how true that is!!
NO to Obamacare
NO to Cap and Tax
NO to unfairly taxing the ‘rich’ (those making over $150K a year)
NO to foolish earmarks
NO to burdening our kids and grandkids with trillions of dollars of debt
NO NO NO NO NO!! >:-(
Must be hard to “work with” someone who has serpents coming out of their eyes and nose. Evil bastard. Stole the election in Nevada, now he’s all weepy.
Harrah’s Reid playing with House money again?
Funny how a guy’s tone changes when his nads are in a vise.
The last 4 years will suffice in showing that there can be no compromise with pure evil. The days are desperate, and action has to be taken to stop this ruin.
What he’s saying is that he doesn’t want to be shut out of legislation meetings. Screw him, Screw Nancy, screw the Democrats. Let them cool their heels while we shut THEM out.
What makes Reid think Republicans want to work with him?
As we learned with Slick Willie, it depends on what his definition of “opportunity” and “work with” is.
Reid isn’t saying he wants to work with Republicans because he wants to work with Republicans. He is saying it (likely) because a good number of the Democrats up in 2012 are nervous about jumping on his Majority Leader train again.
Right. And who was saying 'slow down, it's too early' to abolish slavery? DEMOCRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Harrah Reid is a contemptable, slimy pos. You'll get nothing and like it Harry. Same for your little witch friend in congress.
How about you get John Boehner some cigs? Marlboro Reds in a box, Harry.
We killed the Patriot Act;
The War is Lost;
George Bush is a liar;
Obama has no Negro dialect unless he wants to......
other notable reid statements!
Said the spider to the fly.
Not only that, please don’t call us colleagues! (I’m beginning to hate that word!)
Some of those Democraps who are “up in 2012” should consider crossing the aisle to the Republican side, not because Republicans need crossover RINOs, but because the Democrap Party is doomed in 2012. ...Remember all the Democraps who jumped ship in 94?
“Real solutions and real progress” can only come IF and AFTER the GOP stands and holds it’s ground.
America compromised with Japan, AFTER we defeated them with overwhelming force and AFTER THEY surendered, unconditionally.
The power the GOP presently has, has been loaned to them, and loaned to them to WIN, not to just get along to get along, NOT for COMPROMISING with those intent of the destruction of our country.
Sure do. I think that is when "RINO" was invented. Later they became "Blue Dogs." They just move back and forth to the "winning team."
Unprincipled, money grubbing whores is what they should be called.
Reid: “I Welcome Every Opportunity to Work with our Republican Colleagues”
There must be an adult diaper called “Our Republican Collegues.”
When the rats were in control it was screw you Republicans and American Citizens. Its our way or the highway.
Now that the American Citizens have stepped up and bitch slapped these morons, they now want to work with us..
Here is a clue. PISS OFF..........
....however we will not seat the new Republican Senator from Illinois right away. Hey Harry you are off to a great start. Bwahahahahahahahah.
Think gridlock...so far every day with this affirmative action wonder has felt like a prostrate exam.
The Democrats try to act like the Republicans, and get away with it.
1) They practice trickle-down economics. The bailouts were trickle-down economics. Similar to giving the tax cut to the rich, in the sense that the taxpayers paid for the government funds being sent to large banks, and the automotive industry, out of hopes that their productivity would mean more sales, or that the employers’ additional funds would lead them to slow down the layoffs. The major difference between that and a tax cut to the employers/wealthy is a matter of fancy words, unless someone can explain the difference, which I fully welcome if neccessary.
2) Support for going on a path that leads to a prolonged war, while seeming to care about changing military regulation (DADT) rather than finishing off the war or declaring victory.
3) If they wanted to cram the legislation through, the GOP could do nothing to stop them, they simply made the process slow specifically to lay the blame for their own slacking off on the GOP.
Most of what they have is “fancy” words, which when you translate their true meaning is pretty much without substance.
