Harry’s Reid’s Senate is Dysfunctional, Says … Tom Daschle

Posted by on Oct 15, 2012 at 9:06 am

This one’s going to leave a bruise coming from one of the most partisan Senate majority leaders in modern times. Almost sounds as if Tom “Puff” Daschle is recommending Harry Reid get the boot.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is about to take some unwelcome friendly fire from former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle who uses his new textbook on the Senate to slam the chamber he left in 2005 as a poor example for emerging democracies.

“If we’re the standard by which other Democracies and republics judge themselves, we’ve lowered the bar,” he writes in The U.S. Senate, adding, “it’s vital for us to do a better job than we’re doing today, and that must begin, as much as anywhere, in the Senate.”

Daschle’s book, provided to Secrets and set to publish in January, is an in-depth and well-researched explainer on how the Senate works. But it also includes several chapters on how the chamber has become much more partisan, graceless and white since he was ousted from his South Dakota seat by Sen. John Thune, a riser in GOP leadership.

Yes, it has actually become more white since the only black Senator became president. I guess that’s somehow racist.

    Ain’t it great how even in a ‘textbook’, leftists play the race card? Would that gift hiding clown care to explain why the Seante was so lily white when he was ruling the roost? Did he realize that his chair was occipied by a Person of Pallor?

    3.5 years (and counting) without a budget and his party controlled BOTH houses of Congress (as well as the Presidency) for the first two of those years. If this bum were a cab driver, you’d be still sitting at the curb with the meter running. We wouldn’t tolerate this in a tradesman or a store clerk, but somehow as the “leader” of the senate, this hack merited re-election.
