Reid vs. Reid: Political hypocrisy documented on video

What a difference seven years and the leadership of the Senate can make. The Republican Senate Conference has released a video showing Democrat Senator Harry Reid contradicting himself in changing the rules of the Senate pertaining to filibusters.

In 2005, Republicans were the majority and proposed filibuster reform. Reid is shown saying to “break the rules to change the rules is un-American.” But now, he refers to the proposal as “minor changes…that wouldn’t affect anybody.”

While in 2012 Reid said the measure was a “partisan political grab,” today he says “to do what is right for the country, is to change these rules in the Senate.”

    Horrible Harry at it again, the man has NO conscience. Another reason for term and AGE limits for congress!

    Just more double talk. Like my dad says" liberals talk out of both sides of their mouth". That's not the only place they talk out of. I guess after over 60 years of listening to these socialists he knows exactly how they are. Harry Reid is an ignorant puppet. He hasn't made an original point in his career.. As for Nancy Pelosi ( yes I had to go there ) she is just plain insane!
