Krauthammer: Reid Was a Disgrace

Mar. 30, 2015

Political analyst Charles Krauthammer had this to say about the news that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is retiring: “Harry, we hardly knew ye and what we did know we didn’t like. Now, I know you’re not supposed to dance on the grave of the newly dead but this is only a political death, so those rules don’t apply and I will be unrestrained. I’m not against the fact that he was a partisan with sharp elbows and all that, but I do think he was a disgrace to his own institution because he emasculated it in the name of protecting the president and trying to re-elect Democrats. He didn’t succeed because he essentially shutdown the Senate as soon as Republicans took the House in 2010. He failed as a partisan because nine senators of his party lost re-election. But he succeeded in protecting the president from having to exercise the veto and in order to achieve that, he killed his own institution.”
