[AUDIO] Harry Reid: John McCain controls about 10 people and thatís all I needed to get things done

See I don’t need a lot of Republicans to help me. And that’s why I so admire John McCain. John McCain and I came to the House together 31 years ago. We came to the Senate together at the same time. He and I have fought over the years but we’re also very very good, good friends. And he broke away from the pack.

He said, in effect, we have to get some things done. So he doesn’t control the Republican caucus but he controls probably 10 people there. That’s all I needed.

And we were able to get a lot of things done. We nominated scores, we confirmed scores of nominees. And because of him we were able to get immigration reform done. We’ve been able to do some things.

But it’s because of John McCain breaking away from this ideological anarchy-driven Tea Party that has so much control over Republicans in Congress.

All those people who were trashing J. D. Hayworth and talking up McCain in 2010, where are you now?

As our nation goes down for the count, I'd like to point out what you folks managed to accomplish for the Left.

McCain should keep his stained blue dress, so he can confirm that he and Reed “collaborated” when Harry denies it later.

“So he doesn’t control the Republican caucus but he controls probably 10 people there”

He’s a filthy, stinkin’ traitor. ARIZONA, RECALL THIS POS!

And that number’s about to go down to 8, because Taxby is retiring, and we’re retiring Linda Gayham by force.

It becomes increasingly clear that my assessment of scum like McCain as “Kapos” is 100% correct.

He’s busy kissing the ass of the SS guard.

While I respect John McCain’s service, he is acting like an enemy of the base of the Republican Party.

I question this because, if they had the numbers, why do they need to keep talking about having the numbers? Why wouldn’t they hold the vote and get it over with?

True. They must be still working on it. I suspect that they're close, though.

I agree, McCain doesn’t control anyone but the democrats do and only the numbers are in dispute.

It's not an act.

John McCain and Harry Reid’s greatest future problem is the Tea Party, led by (hopefully) our next President ... Sarah Palin

Harry Reid sure does seem to be flapping his gums a lot lately. Did someone give him some truth serum?

So Reid confirms that there are collaborationist “willful defiants” in the “R” camp.

Sadly, can’t recall a U.S. Senator.
