Watch: Harry Reid Tells GOP Time for 'No' is Over


Senator Harry Reid, who defeated Tea Party challenger Sharron Angle last night, said it was "one of the toughest" races he's had to fight. Reid called it "the start of the next round."

He told the GOP this morning, in a statement, that it was time to stop saying "no":

"The time for politics is now over. And now that Republicans have more members in both houses of Congress, they must take their responsibility to present bipartisan solutions more seriously. Simply saying 'no' will do nothing to create more jobs, support our middle-class and strengthen our economy.” 

Watch Reid's victory speech from last night, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Ok, Harry, so show us you aren't a dirtbag and repeal DADT in the lame duck session.

  2. I know he wasn't at all popular but I am so glad we didn't have to see Sharon Angle's smug annoying grin winning.

  3. @Paul: I'm with you! Please, Dog, let us have seen the last of that ugly smile.

  4. If Republicans are against workers rights and are in favor of outsourcing American jobs, how can anyone think that they would want to create jobs? Republicans are a tool for corporate greed and have a platform of homophobia & racism, but I must admit that they do make great spitoons to target your spit.

  5. Let's hope Harry's colleagues in the Senate vote to give him more time to spend in his home state and elect someone else majority leader for the next term.

  6. Thanks Harry. It's also time to stop saying no to a public health option, equal rights for lesbians and gays to marry, and to serve in the military. Practice what you preach.

  7. A new day for America, but what will it bring?

  8. This spineless milksop is really lucky that his opponent was batshit crazy. He's already talking about all the compromise he's going to do with the Republicans. Saying how we can't rule from the "far left or the far right"--guess what you broken lawn chair--we've never ruled from the "far left".

  10. I love the fact that the Dems are now crying about the need for compromise and bipartisanship. Those two words were the farthest thing from their mouth when they were in total control.

  11. He is indeed very lucky that his opponent was incompetent, both intellectually and pathologically. He wouldn't have triumphed over someone who was more savvy and grounded. Chucky was chompin' at the bit for the driver's seat, but too bad, huh...that he could kick some ass (not really what senators do,'s not the house, and they don't take names and hold hostages...) compared to reid isn't really a a rag on a stick could achieve much of the same. And yes, nothing will advance in congress on gay rights for quite some time...time to look to the judiciary...but we already knew that, yeah?

  12. Hard to compromise and be bipartisan when the other half just sits in the corner with their thumbs up their collective asses doing nothing.
