Sen. Reid represents all that is wrong in the U.S. government [along with his compatriot Rep. Nancy Pelosi]. They pander while being the most two-faced specimens imaginable.
Vince Flynn's book quoted Thomas Jefferson:
"Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends [i.e., securing inherent and inalienable rights, with powers derived from the consent of the governed], it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness." --Thomas Jefferson: Declaration of Independence, 1776. ME 1:29, Papers 1:315 [source]There is little doubt that Thomas Jefferson would have been speaking directly about Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi had he had the chance. He would have approved of term limits for them.
“This is my last political campaign…I’m term limited,” he said Saturday at Centreville High School in Clifton, Virginia in remarks that were similar to others he’s delivered in recent weeks. -- President Barack Obama [source]I suspect Vince Flynn's fictional Rep. Michael O'Roarke might have felt comfortable with term limits for Harry and Nancy. But we would be happy if they simply didn't run again. Fat chance. Still too much pork to barbecue.
