Skip to comments.Reid apologizes for nasty tone on Senate floor
Posted on 10/04/2013 9:45:40 AM PDT by justlurking
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid delivered a striking mea culpa on the Senate floor Friday as he opened the chamber, saying he and his colleagues have simply gotten too personal and nasty in their floor debates.
A day earlier Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, had scolded Mr. Reid for attacking Sen. Ted Cruz, another Texas Republican, by name as they debated the government shutdown. Mr. Cornyn read directly from the Senate Rules that prohibit members from impugning each others motives or conduct.
Mr. Reid on Friday said it was a lesson all senators, including himself, should learn.
Ill work harder and I hope my senators will work to their best to maintain these habits of civility and decorum, he said.

He is the Leader why do they have to tell him the rules. he should be enforcing them not breaking them. Great Leadership role.
It is past time to start boycotting Las Vegas and Reno, until those controlling those cities and casinos get rid of Reid.
I'm sure this was the key.....heh
I want no delay in implementing 0baMaocare....let the pain begin immediately, so that next year even the dumbest of voters realize this ain’t just a “glitch” or two...
You left of the satire tag.
It's been 3 days, and the MSM narrative will change...it was inevitable. They've been beating up on the Ted Cruz and the Tea Party, trying to blame us for closing the memorials and national parks.
The MSM can't stick with the same narrative in the 24/7 news cycle, as the audience gets bored.
They're wringing their hands, as the American people are seeing life going on pretty much as usual.
Obama should have kept his trip to Asia.
His “apology” is BS. No...no one with a brain accepts it. harry, you are a freak who needs to resign immediately.
He doesnt mean a word of it.
EXACTLY! He is a hypocrite and a liar. Pure theater — saying what he thinks he has to.
Hey Reid 1-800-318-2596
LOL. Best comment in the thread!
Reid, you know you can’t unring a bell.
Ha, I’d like to see more of that. Brawls with flying fists and chairs like some other countries have done. The time for full confrontational politics is far overdue.
He just called boehner a coward... must be the “new tone”.
You bet we can win this. Couple this despicable behavior with
their petulant, childish attempts to punish us with shutdowns; parks, scenic views....anything that will make us poor insignificant citizens pay attention, fear, and obey our betters. FY,BO
He needs to apologize to that CNN reporter and every one of those kids that have cancer.
Dear Harry, take your apology and stuff it up where the sun don't shine.
And I don't and will never apologize for that statement.
Harry must have heard from the folks back in Nevada and the pollsters.
I’m waiting for him to apologize for being alive.
