Skip to comments.Reid apologizes for nasty tone on Senate floor

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.

Well, it took him long enough...
What? Reid apologized?
That means his nasty hatefulness isn’t working this time.
That’s how hairy rolls. His apology is meaningless.
He doesn’t mean a word of it.
Why is that nasty soft spoken little man scolding others in his arm twisted apology?
Harry, we will never forgive you.
“I’m sorry (that the mic was still on)”.
Did Dingy Harry apologize to the children with cancer he wants killed
Too personal and nasty? Methinks not.
Let’s be more like the House of Commons.

Psssst....Something's up....Obama is getting sign up numbers. One year delay might be a terrific deal.
And if the Repubs get the Houses and White House...and repeal the damn thing...it will all revert back to the fault of the Repubs being pri*** in 2013.
Just watch...he didn't give up his Asia trip for nothing.

He has always been a nasty bastard and he meant every word. Apology my ass..
“arsonists” and “anarchists” must not be polling well.
We can win this fight.
Dingy is Nevada’s disgrace, in my opinion!
This tells me they’re plotting some new sinister trick. I better go check to see if my checking account’s been drained or something.
