I seem to remember multiple judicial nominees during the Bush administration who went YEARS without an up/down vote, thanks to the delaying tactics, rule bending and filibustering of one Harry Reid.

Reid, Schumer, Pfwank, Pelosi, Dodd and Rangel represent the most disgusting and militant brand of partisan politics and they are all closet Communist scum, as well.

I can't believe that Harry Reid identifies as a Mormon.

I wonder how he can afford to maintain a home in Utah AND live at the Ritz-Carlton when he is in DC?

Reid helped to block a vote on more than THIRTY Bush nominees during that time. Why is he such a hypocrite?

Because he's a Democrat.

In private conversations, Reid had remarked that Obama could win the Presidency because the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama—to whom he referred as being "light-skinned" and "with no ***** dialect, unless he wanted to have one".

no n e g r o dialect!

"In August 2010, Harry Reid spoke in front of National Council of La Raza: "I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK. Do I need to say more?" The following day, Dr. Manny Alvarez and Republican Senator Marco Rubio, both of Hispanic descent, spoke out against Reid's remarks."
