For a glimpse of what ails Washington, look no further than the strange and petty utterances of Sen. Harry Reid.
YouTube and the Internet are filled with Reidisms. Now he’s using Twitter to communicate all the wrong partisan messages when what the country needs is a strong voice of leadership.
Consider this tweet that came in about five minutes ago:
"@SenatorReid: Moving fwd, I hope the fear of the Tea Party & millionaire lobbyists like Grover Norquist will not prevent Rs from forging compromises w/Ds"
Brilliant. With inspiring thoughts like that, we’re going nowhere on any kind of spending reduction or effective plan to improve the economy.
Reid and Obama have had full run of Congress for almost three years and what do we have to show for it? A worse economy with few signs of improvement. The best Obama and Reid can offer us is very, very slow growth, more spending, higher deficits and a bizarre proclamation that Americans have gotten soft and lazy over the years.
We need a change from Obama and a marginalization of Harry Reid policies. Big time.
