Who Will Do What Harry Reid Did Now That Harry Reid Is Gone?

New York Magazine ^ | December 27, 2016 | Jason Zengerle
Nevada’s departing senator would have fought Trump with a ruthlessness perhaps no other Democratic leader has. Harry Reid was searching for someone to take a stand. It was a Tuesday morning in early December, three days before his three-decade congressional career would effectively come to an end, and Reid had summoned about 20 of his staffers to his Capitol office just off the Senate floor. Although it’s reserved for the leader of the Senate’s minority party, it’s still a ­magisterial space, with soaring ceilings and mosaic floors. As a cold rain pelted the windows, the Nevada senator sat in a...

Washington Free Beacon ^ | 11/18/15 | Elizabeth Harrington
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) objected to legislation that would prevent taxpayer funding from going towards oil paintings for members of government such as Harry Reid, Wednesday.Sen. Bill Cassidy (R., La.) attempted to pass his bill to ban funding for official portraits of the president, vice president, cabinet members, and Congress by unanimous consent. Reid, who is retiring after his term ends in 2016, objected, preventing the legislation’s passage. The Senate honors its former majority and minority leaders with portraits after they leave office.“I have no clue why the esteemed Democratic Leader objects,” Cassidy said. “All I can say is...

A Mormon bishop in Los Angeles is under fire for his assertion that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is unworthy to enter the faith's temples because of his support for Democratic Party positions. Mark Peredes' blog, titled "Good Riddance to Harry Reid, the Mormon Senate Leader," has drawn criticism from the church and Mormon Democrats. [SNIP] Reid spokeswoman Kristen Orthman on Saturday released a letter from a Mormon Democrat in Las Vegas to Paredes. "Our comment to this is to show you one of many comments Sen. Reid has received from his friends," Orthman said. The letter was written by...

POLITICO ^ | 1/22/15 | Manu Raju
The Senate Democrats' wounded leader is desperate to show that he's still in charge. Harry Reid doesnt particularly like long phone calls. He is known to abruptly hang up after a quick conversation with an aide, a senator or a lobbyist.But in the aftermath of a grisly New Years Day exercise accident, which gave him four broken ribs and may leave him permanently blind in one eye, the 75-year-old Nevada Democrat has been burning up the phones with up to 50 calls per day, trying to make clear that hes still in charge.

Sen. Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who suffered a serious eye injury while exercising in his home in January, announced what a lot of conservatives have been waiting with bated breath to hear: Hes not seeking reelection. Hes served for about three decades in Congress and has been one of President Obamas biggest defenders on several of the White House leaders key agenda pushes. I understand this place, he said, the New York Times reported. I have quite a bit of power as minority leader.

WHO Beat Up Harry Reid?

Rush Limbaugh was talking about this yesterday so WHO beat up Harry Reid? Nobody except Kool-Aid drinking liberals really believes the exercise equipment excuse. Reid did make some mumblings about suing the exercise equipment company but seems to have let that dropped. Also strange is that he never NAMED the company who made that exercise equipment. If I was similarly injured by exercise equipment I would be warning people away from the brand. So the big question is WHO beat up Harry Reid? Was it more than one person. And WHY? Also interesting is that Reid felt he needed to...

Harry Reids caucus is running from him on the campaign trail, but that doesnt mean a revolt is in the works yet. The majority leader has twisted the Senate into a pretzel all year to protect his vulnerable members, but the Nevada Democrat is now facing skepticism on the campaign trail from some of those same Democrats, as well as from some would-be newcomers. And theres at least one scenario that could force his hand. Still, theres that old saying: You cant beat somebody with nobody, and so far, none of the senators who might have the chops to...

The Wall Street Journal ^ | September 30, 2014 | Fred Barnes
In Kansas, Democrats persuaded their Senate candidate, Chad Taylor, to drop out of the race against incumbent Republican Pat Roberts. Mr. Taylor was running third in polls behind Mr. Roberts and independent Greg Orman. Soon after Mr. Taylor's early-September withdrawal, Democratic lawyers went to court to keep his name off the ballot. In Montana, after Democratic Sen. Max Baucus announced that he would not seek re-election in 2014, Democrats feared that an open seat would be an easy win for Republican Steve Daines. So Mr. Baucus resigned and went to China as U.S. ambassador. Lt. Gov. John Walsh was appointed...

Vanity | 9/17/2014 | Vanity
A very disturbing number of Freepers are openly advocating, on Free Republic threads, for the defeat of Senator Pat Roberts and other good Conservative Republicans. Greg Orman, in Kansas, is a pro abortion, anti gun, tax and spend Liberal Democrat who has given tens of thousands of dollars to Obama and Pelosi and the Democrat Party and Harry Reid. I am called an "idiot" for supporting Roberts. However, I think that those on Free Republic who support Harry Reid and Greg Orman should be ZOTTED, kicked off the site. I have had enough of there hate filled, vindictive, misguided trash.

Retaking the Senate no longer seems like the cinch that Democrats imagined...and now theyre responding with budget obstructionism that could end with a government shutdown. If they cant win on the merits, they can attempt to provoke a fake crisis. The last budget deal runs out...and the Senate will vote Tuesday on a clean continuing resolution... The bill also includes $1.1 billion to fight the Zika virus... funding for the recent heroin and addiction bill; and $500 million in disaster aid for Louisiana... This is exactly what Democrats...said they wanted. If they want to get out of here, Democratic leader...

The last we heard from Dingy Harry he was explaining that some sort of elastic band on an exercise machine in his bathroom malfunctioned and left him blind in his right eye and otherwise severely injured. Prior to that, Dingy Harry was out there suggesting that Mitt Romney had not paid his taxes for ten years. He was on the floor of the Senate claiming a friend of his told him that. The media said (paraphrasing), "Who's your friend?" Dingy Harry said, "Doesn't matter." The media said, "Where's your evidence?" Dingy...

Retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid wants a job at the network that is home to Brian Williams, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz and Chris Matthews. Reid, the Nevada lawmaker who is planning to retire next year, told CNBC's John Harwood, "I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm not going to lobby. I'm not going to practice law. I'll keep busy. I may want one of your jobs here to be an analyst on TV and say all these good things that you always say about me."

Poolitical ^ | 11-5-14 | Burgess Everett
Senate Democrats lost their majority on Harry Reids watch. But theyre closing ranks around him anyway. In interviews with more than a half-dozen surviving Democratic senators and several top aides on Wednesday, many agreed that Americans booted some of their colleagues at least in part because of the perception that Reids Senate was getting little done. There were few pieces of landmark legislation to boast about, a dearth of votes on amendments and at times the chamber seemed little more than a clearinghouse for President Barack Obamas nominees. But most Democrats have Reids back, prepared to stand by him as...
