    I don't think McConnel is slimier than Reid, however, I don't think much will change with Reid out the majority spot.

    Reid needs to be gone from Congress completely, he not only hurts Congress as a whole he hurts the Dems. His usefulness to their cause is long over. I don't see much liberalism moving forward due to his leadership, which is fine by me too. But just saying.

    I agree with you there, Reid is one of the slimiest politicians out there. Definitely in the Top 3 in my book of slimiest.

    I think if the Democrats retain the senate, Reid will go nowhere. He will continue on being majority leader. In fact even if the Democrats lose the senate, I would give odds on Reid being elected minority leader. Remember the Democrats elected their once Speaker of the House Pelosi and the minority leader once they lost control of the house.

    Reid is a party over country guy. Everything he has done was just to ensure the Democrats maintain their majority in the senate, little thought given to the country as a whole.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I get people trying to push their agendas, but just not bringing stuff to the floor for a vote is way over the top. He ought

For all his years and power, people are getting fed up with his bull****, especially some Democrats. He's been running interference for Obama for six years, and it's probably the reason why Obama got reelected. But his playbook is getting old, and tiresome. He's a ****ing megalomaniac who wants to rule the Senate till 2022!
    Kind of reminds you of Pelosi a few years back. How many seats in the house did she cause her party to lose?

    That old bag of bones needs to go too; she's a witch.

    Getting rid of Reid is one of the worst things that could happen to the GOP of NO.
    Running against people and ideas is all the GOP knows,
    We'll see how they do with the big-boy shoes on .
