He’s a Democrat. Why would he acknowledge failure when he can just blame a scapegoat?
Harry Reid helped lead the Democrats into a tailspin. And he looks back without regret. (As for the Trump win? That’s not his fault. He blames Comey… of course!)
“…this is hardly the scenario that Reid envisioned for his departure: with a President-elect Trump and all-GOP Congress firmly in control of Washington. And Reid’s most controversial move as leader — invoking the “nuclear option” on Senate confirmations — will leave his party essentially powerless to halt Trump’s Cabinet selections.
Reid insisted that it was the right thing to do.
“I don’t know if it’s my biggest achievement, but I’m satisfied we did it. We had to. Look at why it was done,” said Reid, who turned 77 this month. “We got almost 100 judges approved … we saved the integrity of different agencies of government. No, think of what our country would’ve been without that.”
Reid predicted that the 60-vote filibuster threshold for legislation and for Supreme Court nominees will ultimately disappear altogether — calling it a natural evolution of the chamber.
The rules are “going to erode, it’s just a question of when,” Reid said. “You can’t have a democracy decided by 60 out of 100, and that’s why changing the rules is one of the best things that has happened to America in a long time. It’s good for us, it’s good for them.”
Republicans blame Reid for most of the Senate’s stagnation in recent years, and his evisceration of the filibuster is one of their prime examples. Reid’s decision to water down the filibuster prompted now-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to declare that the Nevada Democrat will be remembered as the “worst majority leader ever.” —Politico
Did he actually say ‘saved the integrity of different agencies of government’?
What about the IRS targeting his political rivals? What about Fast And Furious? What about Benghazi?
No. He is a man with a ‘Great Legacy’. We know because he tells us.
And that’s how Liberal accounts of history are written.
