Reid Statement On Senate Democrats Maintaining Their Majority
United States Senate Democrats ^ | November 7,2012 | Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Posted on 11/07/2012 1:42:59 PM PST by mdittmar

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) released the following statement after Senate Democrats won enough seats to guarantee they would hold the majority in the 113th Congress:

“Now that the election is over, it’s time to put politics aside, and work together to find solutions. The strategy of obstruction, gridlock and delay was soundly rejected by the American people. Now, they are looking to us for solutions.

“We have big challenges facing us in the months ahead. Democrats and Republicans must come together, and show that we are up to the challenge.

“This is no time for excuses. This is no time for putting things off until later. We can achieve big things when we work together. And the middle class is counting on us to achieve big things in the months ahead.

“That is what the American people expect – and that is what the American people deserve.”

It’s easy to retain power when your boss orchestrates the largest voter fraud scheme ever perpetrated on a nation. That millions of fraudulent ballots with only ‘Obama’ checked and the remainder left blank means little change in the Senate OR the House.

Hey Harry! ..wasn't it just yesterday you said you'd never work with Romney?

Why don't you and your comrades work on a budget for once?

To get an interesting glimpse of the *real* Dirty Harry check out the film "Casino"...an *absolutely true* story of the murderous grip that the Mafia had on a Las Vegas casino. Dirty Harry is played by Dick Smothers.

(Hint: Reid was the Chairman of the Nevada State Gaming Commission during the period depicted)

This from the guy who earlier said he was going to limit GOP filibusters.

What Hairy Reed and the Dems want is an appearance of bipartisanship so they can throw the 'Pubbies under the bus when their schemes blow up or backfire. This is what allows them to avoid responsibility because they can that "the Republicans wanted X and such - we just went along with them in the spirit of bipartsanship."

And, the GOP-E is so dumb they'll play along.

Hardly, Harry. If your statement was correct the American people would not have left you in charge of one chamber and the GOP in charge of the other. In this political environment this is EXACTLY what gridlock looks like. You and your boss own it now, so live with it. And oh by the way we still have a CONSTITIUTION.

Why Harry? The Rats have done it alone for 4 years now, just keep doing what you’re doing. BTW, you own it, Bush can’t come to your rescue.

Yup...Joe Peschi too.God that guy plays a convincing psychopath! Have you seen it? It's not as good as Goodfellas,IMO,but it's still excellent particularly because it's a true story.

Boycott Las Vegas, Reno and the rest of Nevada:

Unless you want America to be like CalifornicatingU land, the rest of America needs to separate the blue state pos’s from your money.

Start a boycott, buycott or avoidcott with the Blue States.

Don’t buy a product made or raised in a blue state unless you have proof its owners are not left wingers.

Don’t vacation in, or have conventions or business meetings in, Democrat blue states. Start with Nevada until the casino bosses get rid of Reid and send him home to have more time with his family.

Don’t visit CalifornicatorU land. Don’t go to Follywood movies and stay away from our products except those produced or raised by conservatives.

Avoid NY City like it has the plague. It has the terminal Bloomberg mental illness.

The Blue Staters hate you, your religion, your belief system, and your priorities in life, like your family members and friends. Let the Blue Staters try to live without your $’s.

Let the blue states sink on their own!

Save your charity $’s for red state people when disasters hits their area.

Yes I have and it was just on the other night I also love the costumes for Sharon Stone. I don't remember seeing Smothers in it next time it comes on I will look for him and Dirty Harry's persona.

Goodfellas was good too pretty violent actually this reminds me of the Obama crew they are ruthless and I don't think they won the election fair and
square and I also believe they have killed people who have gotten in their way.

I’m sure I’ll get blasted (especially by the Christian crowd) but I’m not giving ONE DIME to “help” anyone hit by hurricane Sandy.

Those folks want and vote for big government so let their overlords take care of them. I’m not going to lift a finger.

We take care of ourselves, like when the Nashville area got major flooding in May of 2010.

He plays "Senator" in the scene where "Ace Rothstein" (DiNiro) is applying for a casino license in front of the Gaming Commission,which Smothers (Dirty Harry) is chairing.It wasn't a long scene but it was powerful and important to the story.Smothers is also seen earlier in the film checking in to the hotel (having been "comped",which is a crime) and in that scene he's seen with a very naked blonde.*That* scene only lasts about 20 second.)

It isn’t charity when the government, liberals or miss guided conservatives try to force you or shame you into donating your money.

The more evil ones are those who use OPM (other people’s money) to advance their causes and dip into those funds for their use.

The only chance we have is if a few Senate Democrats switch party. Don't believe much chance, but if happens we could kick Reid in the ars.

You’re not alone - not one red cent from me for any organization supporting hurricane Sandy relief efforts. If they could vote in a tent by flashlight for more socialism, they can live off cold beans and dirty water while looters steal what little they have. Just my simple opinion.

First order of business after the 2008 election was cap-n-trade, not slobs that want jobs. Enviro-NGO’s throw the richest cocktail parties.

Now what’s Harry Reid’s first order of business => carbon tax. Enviro-NGO top the list of priorities. Again, not slobs that want jobs.

Yup that’ll teach them to support the GOP. It’ll teach them real good. Don’t ever let them taste “I built that” success.

Having read some of the less than gracious victory comments by gloating Democrats in the Daily Kos, Yahoo, and the Huff Post chat rooms I don’t want to find common ground with these country-wrecking lefties. They need to be defeated, every last one of them. Last night I was shocked and today I’m pissed like all the rest of you and ready to take the fight to them.
