We may all live in a great big global community, but in my Blog, it's my world.
"loser!!!" or perhaps it's just 'cantankerous idiot'.

As an example, (headline is linked) from the Las Vegas Review-Journal's web site:




LESSON IN POLITICS: Reid calls president 'loser'

By ERIN NEFF
REVIEW-JOURNAL


In the course of a discussion on filibusters and Senate rules, Washington's top Democrat gave the 60 juniors a lesson in partisan politics, particularly about the commander in chief. "The man's father is a wonderful human being," Reid said in response to a question about President Bush's policies. "I think this guy is a loser.
"I think President Bush is doing a bad job," he added to a handful of chuckles.
"He's driving this country into bankruptcy," Reid said, referring to the deficit. "He's got us in this intractable war in Iraq where we now have about 1,600 American soldiers dead and another 15,000 injured."
Republican National Communications Director Brian Jones issued a statement calling the senator's comments "a sad development but not surprising from the leader of a party devoid of optimism, ideas or solutions to the issues people care about most."
After the statement was released, Reid phoned the Review-Journal to acknowledge he thought he crossed the line.
"You know the president is in Europe, probably sleeping," Reid said in an interview this afternoon. "But I called (Karl) Rove and apologized for what I said."




As a reminder, this would be the same Senate Minority Leader (a leader in the Democratic party) who came out with harsh words on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas when it was mentioned that Justice Thomas might be considered as a replacement as Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Dems' new Senate leader criticizes Justice Thomas

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Incoming Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Sunday had harsh words for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
When asked to comment on Thomas as a possible replacement for Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Reid told NBC's "Meet the Press": "I think that he has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court.
"I think that his opinions are poorly written. I just don't think that he's done a good job as a Supreme Court justice."




I guess Senator Reid deserves some credit for the apology on the comment on President Bush, but personally, were I a member of the Democratic party, I think I'd be looking for a leader who seemed a bit less, well, like a loser (or is it just senility?). Either way, Senator Reid is not someone most Democrats should be proud of.

If you were such a member, you would be bereft of brain cells, so you would not think.  Neither do they.

Because of the MSM rule #1.  Thou shalt not speak ill of a democrat leader.

The shallow left never lets you down you know what to expect from them, doom and gloom , no solutions and never a kind word for anyone that thinks outside the very tiny liberal box.
