Poor Harry Reid (Obstructionist-NV) can't get a break. First he decided his lectern was a chair before deciding it was a car. Now President Bush is calling him out for thwarting the democratic process. Oddly after he gets done whining about how he is being mis-characterized he confirms that his motivations for obstructing the process were politically motivated. Sometimes I don't think poor Harry knows what he is saying as his special interest masters lead him around like a circus pony.
In private as well as public, Reid and Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., who heads the party's campaign effort, said they did not want to expose rank-and-file Democrats to votes that would force them to choose between border security and immigrant rights, only to wind up with legislation that would be eviscerated in future negotiations with the House.
