At least we can now go after the Reid-Obama agenda, instead of the Pelosi-Reid-Obama agenda.
Don’t forget we got rid of Pelosi, who was way more powerful than Reid, and Reid’s power has been diminshed - let him try to get anymore socialist policies through the Senate, with 21 Senate DemocRats up for re-election in 2012.
I wanted to see Reid go down in flames but there are some definite advantages to having him still in place:
1) he’s an ineffective, fossilized leader who will be the “face” of so much that’s wrong with the Demagogues over the next 2, 4, 6 years
2) getting to a bare majority in the Senate with RINOs like the sob sisters from Maine and Mr. Grahamnesty holding key votes would have been worse than useless on many issues
3) related to #1, Reid is utterly incapable of leading any movement or ‘selling’ liberal ideas on a national scale
4) we need to replace a lot of ‘Rat senators in 2012 before we can do anything effective in the Senate — the seats that were up this year strongly favored the Demagogues overall and it’s better to let Reid flail about for two more years as a castrated Majority Leader
