... That is the ultimate statement of political cynicism. What Reid is saying if you consider the comments to Bash last year and those to Terris recently is that the ends justify the means in all cases. It doesn't really matter if what he said about Romney's taxes is wrong. All that matters is that Romney lost. That Romney lost is justification enough for Reid to have made the false allegation. ...

And interestingly enough, Lizzie Warren seems to have made a number of numerical mistakes on her taxes!
D- Honest Mistake
R- Tax Fraud
Reid- Hey it worked, what’s your problem?
This is the response the Bolsheviks would give “the end justifies the means”. I remember Bill Clinton acknowledging that JFK and LBJ prob. didn’t win the 1960 election, that it was stolen in Illinois and Texas. But he retorted that JFK and LBJ were such wonderful presidents as compared to what Nixon would have done that it was justified. Unless it had been done to HIM, of course.
Gee Harry, maybe citizens should consider the same pragmatic approach when dealing with government? What do you think Harry? Alls fair in Love, War and governmental dealings?
Not saying that Schumer & cohorts would have been different without the guidelines put down by the lamentable Sen. Reid, but what he got away with is a part of their tactics.
The irony though is, of course, it is his, Reid, prior use of the Nuclear Option that is what gives us the 50 + VP choice for Kavanaugh. When Reid threw out the 60 majority requirement, we lost then but are gaining now (I HOPE!)
Harry Reid is and always will be a effing jack ass.
And both of them are Mormons in good standing with the church.

I went back to Reid’s 3/31/2015 interview with Dana Lash. When she went through a list of potential Republican candidates; Rubio, Cruz, Graham, Jeb Bush, asking him what he thought of them, I kept waiting for her to mention Trump. Then I realized the interview was before Trump announced his candidacy.
Wow has the world changed since then.
