Harry Reid To Retire




|| By FITSNEWS || Liberal Washington, D.C. leader Harry Reid will not seek reelection to the U.S. Senate in 2016 – meaning Democrats will have a new leader in the U.S. Senate come 2017.

“Republicans” rejoiced at Reid’s announcement … apparently neglecting to realize their leaders are no better.  Worse, even.

Seriously … at least Reid was typically honest about being a corrupt and shameless supporter of bigger, more intrusive government. And at least those were precepts rooted in his party’s platform.

Can John Boehner say the same?   No … yet he bends over for the administration of Barack Obama every bit as willingly as Reid did.

Anyway … we’re glad to see Reid go.  In addition to the damage he did at the national level, he was a costly thorn in the side of South Carolinians on the Yucca Mountain issue (a.k.a. the place our taxpayers disproportionately sent hundreds of millions of dollars as part of a plan to dispose of toxic nuclear waste).

But please … let’s not pretend any of these “leaders” are any different.

They’re not … 

Reid announced his intention to retire four months after “Republicans” won control of the U.S. Senate (for whatever that’s been worth), and two-and-a-half months after he suffered an “exercise accident” at his home in Las Vegas.

U.S. Senator Charles Schumer of New York is likely to follow Reid as the Senate’s “minority” leader, although again – we caution anyone from presuming any of this makes an iota of difference in the ideological direction of the country.
