Harry Reid Retiring
#1
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid announced Friday he will retire at the end of his term, closing a long and controversial career in Congress that spanned four decades.

The five-term Nevada Democratic senator announced the decision in a YouTube video message.

Appearing with bruises on his face from a recent at-home exercising accident, Reid, 75, said the injury has allowed him and his family to have a "little down-time," giving him time to think.

"We've got to be more concerned about the country, the Senate, the state of Nevada than us. And as a result of that, I’m not going to run for reelection,” the senator said in the video.

Reid, ribbing his Republican counterpart, added: "My friend, Senator McConnell, don't be too elated. I'm going to be here for twenty-two months."

I can't believe he posted that on youtube with the comment enabled. I can't believe no one has commented yet.

Nobody has used their office for more personal gain then Dingy Harry has...Its a black eye {no pun intended} on law enforcement that he's been given basically a license to steal all these years !!

Well that's one snake oil salesman gone...I'd like to see more of these life long govt. check cashers to resign as well...Including a few republicans...

My list, not necessarily in order..

Charlie Rangel
Chuck Schumer
John Mccain
Dick Turbin
Orin Hatch

This POS knows he had no way of ever winning another election. The casino unions in Vegas were going on strike because the casinos were dumping the workers into Obamacare and the Las Vegas Review Journal made sure everyone knew who was responsible for Obamacare.

This douche needs to go home and beat up again by his thigh master.
