Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has died. Reid a Democrat from Nevada was 82.

Reid led the Democrat-controlled Senate during Obama’s presidency. Recently, Reid battled pancreatic cancer for four years finally succumbing to it on Tuesday.

Senator Reid was responsible for blocking then-President George W. Bush’s attempt to privatize social security and was instrumental in passing Obama-care as well.

Famously, Reid led the push to change the Senate’s procedures for confirming judges and executive-branch nominees with a simple majority. The move altered the chamber and led Mitch McConnell to use it against Democrats in confirming former President Trump’s nominees.

Reid wasn’t without fire. He attacked presidential candidate Mitt Romney with unfounded claims of Romney not paying income taxes for a decade.

Senator Reid urged Barack Obama to run for president and predicted he would become the first black president stating, ““light-skinned and had no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” to which he later apologized.

Harry Reid is survived by his wife, Landra, and five children, and numerous grandchildren.

I do not delight in the death of Harry Reid, but he was a political hack, and I, for one, will not miss him.

I wish I could say something nice about “Dirty Harry” Reid but alas, I cannot tell a lie! He was one of the most dishonorable and dishonest Speakers in the history of America!
I do offer condolences to his poor family……………….

Or his Chinese business partners, with whom he wanted to set up a taxpayer-funded solar energy farm – on the Bundy Ranch…

This explains why today seemed more pleasant that it should have been. Another leftist fanatic has joined his heroes Lenin, Stalin, and Mao in Hell.
I know that seems harsh, but considering what Reid wanted to do to America, it’s more than he deserves in recognition.

This morning supposed “conservative” anchors are saying great things about this man. He wasn’t the “lion” of the Senate; he was the JACKAL with his shady real estate deals and lying. Especially heinous was stabbing a fellow Mormon in the back and then bragging about it. NOTHING to praise here!

The Harry Reid legacy will be lies, deceit, and self-enrichment. Now Las Vegas just needs to remove that noxious name of his from their airport.
