Harry Reid, bitter? Nah!

The schadenfreude of the week:


They had me at “Harry Reid’s exit interview”:

Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blasted Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, his soon-to-be successor, and other Republicans, vowing Democrats will wage “a new battle” with the GOP when the Senate reconvenes on Jan. 6.

“Is there enough they can do to help Wall Street? I don’t think so. Big banks? I don’t think so,” Reid told the New York Times in an exit interview published Wednesday. “That’s where the new battle is going to be.”

The 75-year-old Nevada Democrat said Republicans are at odds with Americans when it comes to environmental protection laws.

“They want to eviscerate Clean Air, Clean Water, EPA,” Reid said.
Reid said he plans to run for reelection in 2016, when some of his Senate colleagues — including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio — may be running for the Republican presidential nomination.

When asked by the Times whether any of them could become president, Reid replied: “Of what?”

Have a seat, Harry, you got stomped.

This was the best part:

“I’m happy to work with them,” Reid said of his GOP counterparts. “But I’m not going to throw middle-class America overboard.”

Reid doesn’t have to throw middle-class America overboard — he already did it. At this point it’s a rescue mission for others to lead. But don’t listen to me, take it from the current president of the Senate:
