It took him 30 years, but Democrat Harry Reid finally did something bordering on patriotic and good for America: The battered, bruised minority leader announced that he will NOT seek re-election in 2016!
“Senator Harry Reid, the tough tactician who has led Senate Democrats since 2005, will not seek re-election next year, bringing an end to a three-decade congressional career that culminated with his push of President Obama’s ambitious agenda against fierce Republican resistance.
Mr. Reid, 75, who suffered serious eye and facial injuries in a Jan. 1 exercise accident at his Las Vegas home, said he had been contemplating retiring from the Senate for months. He said his decision was not attributable either to the accident or to his demotion to minority leader after Democrats lost the majority in November’s midterm elections.”
Whatever the real reason for Reid’s departure, the American people should rejoice in celebrating the long-overdue end to a career that was never based on serving the best interests of the American people. Rather, corruption and slavish dedication to leftist ideology made Harry Reid one of the fiercest supporting actors in Barack Obama’s tyrannical attempt to destroy America.
He will NOT be missed, except by legions of “stupid” Americans who share his vision for a bankrupt, defenseless 3rd-world America where borders and speaking English are regarded as racist bigotry!
America will certainly benefit from Reid’s departure and that of Barack Obama in 2016.
However, for the sake of political purity, we the people should rally around the idea of sending Democrat Nancy Pelosi on her merry way to whatever adventures still await her ruinous hand.
For instance, with the advancing age of Pope Francis, perhaps Pelosi could mount a campaign to be the first female, pro-abortion, pro-gay Pope in history?
After all, according to the former Shreiker of the House, she knows more about Catholic doctrine and divine will than Pope Francis and several of his predecessors combined!
And Pelosi just turned 75 on Thursday, just the right age for an out-of-touch lefty to retire to the loony bins of San Francisco, or in a more spiritual calling, to make the Catholic Church more responsive to the unmet needs of non-compliant sinners on the run!
With a little effort, Pelosi might do for the Catholic Church what she did so well for the US House, which is to make that body irrelevant, irreverent, and irresponsible.
