Harry Reid, Un-American.
Check this out:
On Nov. 21, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and other members of the Senate, with the support of President Obama, who apparently lobbied wavering Democrats, broke the rules to change the rules and got rid of the filibuster for presidential nominations. So much for the tradition of debate in the U.S. Senate. The consequences could be dire.
When Harry Reid was the minority leader in the Senate in 2005 and Republicans were contemplating such a change, Reid said the “filibuster was far from a procedural gimmick.” According to the 2005 Reid, the ability to engage in extended debate was “part of the fabric of this institution we call the Senate” and “within the vision of the Founding Fathers of our country. They established a government so that no one person – and no single party – could have total control.”
Reid even promised that he would never “employ or use the nuclear option,” which he claimed would “ruin our country.” But this is now and that was then – he apparently has no problem today engaging in behavior he once called “un-American.”
