Government shutdown: Harry Reid: I am not a criminal By: Burgess Everett October 2, 2013 11:24 AM EDT
There will be no charm offensive from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who said Wednesday that Republicans are obsessed with beating him in a political chess match rather than opening back up the government.
Some in the Republican conference are too mad at me personally, too obsessed at getting me personally to back down from doing what most of America believes is the right thing, Reid said, again reiterating that the Senates six-week clean spending bill is the only way out of a shutdown.
The Nevada Democrat also defended his role in fighting Republican attempts to water down Obamacare as a condition to keeping the government open, responding directly to a National Review piece that called him the villain of villains.
When I read this yesterday, I thought, no one likes to be called a villain, Reid said, reading aloud definitions of the word that mean uncouth, scoundrel or criminal. I am not a criminal. I am not a scoundrel. So they better get a different definition of me.

Yes, you are! You stole your last election!
Exit polls showed your opponent winning against you in your last Senate race.
Then, somehow, (miraculously) you jumped more than five percent into the lead.
Your cronies stuffed the ballot box.
Reid, you are definitely the a$$hole of a$$holes.
Crooked as a dog’s hind leg. Hell, he’s from Nevada.
Get behind Lois Lerner, Harry. She already said this.
What is Harry Reid’s approval number?
Uh, Harry...you are the one who made it personal when you called Cruz an Anarchist and a Terrorist.
Harry Reid is a strike organizer. The Senate needs to get back to work.
Harry Reid is a mealy-mouth, and he was in their pocket just like the rest of them. . .hes a worm. . . all you’ve got to do is read the poem he read when they had that phony Sinatra licensing. . . Reid was the chairman, and he read this kiss-*ss poem. He’s a faker.
