    Do you agree that Reid did more damage to his party than good.

    Give me a sec to attach the poll.
    Probably not. I know that Begich, Landrieu, Pryor and a couple of others wanted Reid to have a vote on the Keystone Pipeline prior to the election and he refused them. Reid knew it would pass, all it needed was additional Democratic votes and I just mentioned three. Throw in Manchin and Hagan that is five.

    But when these senators fall in lock step with President Obama and vote the party line although the people and the states they supposedly represent differ in their views on many of the issues and votes they cast. One vote on the pipeline wouldn't have made much of a difference. They couldn't hide from their past.

    No, this election was not on Reid, it was more on the president with his very low approval rating.
    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.

    hmmm interesting question

    i can only answer for me

    no ONE person can hurt a "party"

    i would never judge the democrats based off of harry reid any more than i would judge republicans from nut cases like palin. Its simply not fair and illogical.

    now having said that i do think a person or squeaky wheels can influence sheep but they are sheep for a reason.

    Well when they all vote one way because they're in the same party...

    Yeah i think it's fair to judge them all based on their weakest link. They're all "united" after all

    but thier not united in real life.

    yes since the system is so broken and they are so retarded and fearful "they" (reps and dems) may vote alike in one of the houses but again i dont judge all reps and dems based on them.

    while i get what you are saying the dem or rep on the street shouldnt be judged based on them or even all the people in those houses

    to judge the right by palin and rush or the left by weiner and moore is sillly

    yeah if up to ted cruz, bachmann, or palin the party would be even more extremist. The fact cruz votes for a party platform that's not quite on par with his "vision" (like supporting "traditional marriage" but stopping short of executing every gay couple) doesn't mean they're all as extremist as ted cruz.

    However it still reflects badly on them to welcome, raise funds, and stump for a hateful loon like that, imo. This is why we need far greater number of viable parties, so there's not such absurd range of ideology under one banner, like Rand Paul ----------> ted cruz

    this I agree with 100%!!!!

    and it is an issue the problem is the squeaky wheels and nutters have a way to generate "attention" good and bad and to rally the base.
    Palin rallied the based very well but many people at the rail didnt want her anywhere near the white house. Its a weird phenomenon.
