Dick of the Week: Harry Reid

Big surprise, right? This feckless asshole has GOT TO go...
Senate GOP Kills Auto Bailout Compromise
A proposed $14 billion automaker bailout bill, agreed to by Congressional Dems and the White House, collapsed late Thursday evening in the face of the opposition by Senate Republicans. "It's over with," declared Harry Reid.

Is is Harry Reid's fault that a group of Southern Senators want to jumpstart a new Confederacy and push the whole country towards a Depression just to score a few union scalps? No. But it's Reid's fucking fault that the Republicans get to scuttle badly needed action by quasi-filibustering without actually having to get off their asses.

Again.

Reid is yet again letting the whole Senate appear to blow it, when it's really a handful of "right to work" assholes actually colluding with foreign companies against American workers just to bust unions.

There's much more on this topic, but I'm on deadline, so it might be days til I can spend time on it...Have at it.

UPDATE: Another reason Harry sucks. His kiss-ass reaction to this bullshit.

Is it just me, or does he resemble an ostrich in this photo?

The metaphor mixing potential there is HUGE. Head in the sand...up his ass...pound sand...sticks his head up his ass into the freshly pounded sand...

Fucking hate that guy.

Reid is truly worthless as Majority Leader.

I am astounde yet again that the majority is cowe by the minority. The filibuster is no fucking threat and no reason to back own. Reid is looking for excuses because in reality, he agrees with the Republicans, not the Dems.

Mr Furious said...

I agree Smitty. He rolls way too easily. Especially on this kind of stuff. He's giving the left a headfake, but allowing the Republicans to drive the agenda and the legislation.

Someone needs to challenge him. I used to think Dodd. Now he's not even good enough for me anymore. I want Feingold.

but allowing the Republicans to drive the agenda and the legislation

Which is sad and pointless. The Dems here in Michigan have done exactly the same thing: they have avoided actually working on the very policy issues that got them elected in the first place because they are "risky."

BUT THAT'S WHY YOU GOT VOTED IN!!!!

The Governor of Michigan isn't prone to name calling, but even she got into the act, calling the southern senators un-American.

“I do believe the president will step in,” Granholm said this morning in an interview on WJR-AM. “He has to, because you can see what is happening to the markets this morning. It is unacceptable for this un-American, frankly, behavior of these U.S. senators to cause this country to go from a recession into a depression.”

Considering Sen. Corker (R-Nissan) represents TN, I have to believe that GM is regretting investing $750 M this year into the Spring Hill TN plant that used to build Saturns and now builds Chevys.

Mr Furious said...

Cole has a great post about the right wing taking great offense to Granholm's remarks—as if every campaign of the last eight years hasn't been wall-to-wall patriotism challenges.

Nate Silver at fivethirtyeight.com (yes, they still exist after the election) has a great piece on Reid that Mr. Furious will agree with:
