SEN. HARRY REID WANTS TO HIDE HIS VOTING RECORD BY PLAYING THE INJURED PARTY

By Jacqueline, PelicanPost - 17 Feb 2005

The misleading soft intonations and Casper Milquetoast demeanor of Sen. Harry Reid lead one to believe that he is an all-time nice guy when he is in fact a hard-left extreme liberal cut from the same cloth as Senators Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Barbara Boxer and former Sen.Tom Daschle. Reid learned well from Daschle, who was recently voted out of office by South Dakota voters---same soft-spoken though venomous words, same type of blindsiding, same anti-Constitution obstruction of Bush nominees to the federal courts and same trick of trying to shame and embarass Republicans. Voters got Dasche's number and they are now getting Reid's. Harry Reid is just smarting because his voting record statistics just got published by CQ Weekly. Kudos to CQ Weekly for showing all voters what a hypocrite Reid is. Nevada voters need to be aware of Reids duplicity and give him the same sendoff South Dakota gave Daschle.

An excellent editorial on this topic is excerpted below:

EDITORIAL: "Still wild about Harry?"

"When CQ Weekly characterized a recent Republican fact sheet detailing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's voting record and policy comments as "bare-knuckled," the Nevada Democrat achieved a public-relations coup over his feigned hurt from GOP "destructionist" tactics....

Precisely when did publicizing a three-term senator's voting record become either a "bare-knuckled" or a "destructionist" strategy? The memo was titled, "Reid all about it: Who is Harry Reid?" It accused Mr. Reid of being "chief Democrat obstructionist...."

Mr. Reid, as the minority whip to then-Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, "helped orchestrate an unprecedented filibuster of some of President Bush's more conservative judges." If conducting "an unprecedented filibuster" campaign does not qualify as being an obstructionist, what does?....

The RNC memo also accused Mr. Reid of being a liberal. It noted that he has compiled a 90 percent lifetime voting rating from the AFL-CIO. His lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union was 21 percent....

Citing a Jan. 26 article in the Hill newspaper, which reported that "[a]n aide to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid was arrested on the West Front of the Capitol for disorderly conduct during President Bush's inaugural address...." washingtontimes
