Umm, Senile Harry., We Don't Need You

From the LVRJ: Sen. Harry Reid struck a note of conciliation on Wednesday in his first public remarks since Democrats lost control of the U.S. Senate and he was unseated as majority leader on Election Day this past week.
Reid said he has no plans to stymie Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who will become majority leader in the Senate that will convene in January. Reid is expected to be elected as minority leader when Democrats meet on Thursday to organize for the new year.
“I’m ready to work with him in good faith to make this institution function again for the American people,” Reid said of McConnell in a brief speech opening the Senate for a post-election lame duck session expected to last until near-Christmas.
Reid opened his remarks with a quote from Will Rogers: “Don’t let yesterday use too much of today.”
“We have a lot of work to do and no time to linger on the past,” he said.
Reid had remained publicly silent and out of the limelight for a week since deep Democratic losses on Nov. 4, raising anticipation to the tone he would choose to set moving forward. The Nevadan, who is expected to be targeted by Republicans when he is up for re-election in 2016, will remain majority leader during the lame duck but said he plans to compromise with Republicans who will control at least 53 seats in the incoming Senate.
“I saw first hand how a strategy of obstruction was debilitating to our system and I have no desire to engage in that manner,” said Reid, referring to what he has complained were Republican attempts during the Obama presidency to filibuster bills and delay votes on nominees to federal posts.
Well, Senile/Coward/Liar Harry Reid, the GOP doesn't need you or even want you.
And for you to complain about obstruction, hell, you were the biggest obstructionist around, by holding up laws that would have passed but you didn't want the bill to pass.
So, Harry, get ready: you are a nobody in Washington D.C. and you have no power.
Deal with it, ass hole.
