It is a normal trait of effective leaders that they find points of agreement between disparate viewpoints. Otherwise attempts at progress end in pointless wheel spinning as the factions go at each other with ferocity.
Especially bad is when the leader himself joins in the mud-slinging.
It’s a sign of anything from immaturity to imbecility. At the very least it shows they aren’t up to the job.
Enter Harry Reid. Ham-handed at best, he’s stooped low even for his own standards and equated those against the biggest boondoggle in the history of government with those against the abolition of slavery.
Yep. That’s right. A member of the party of the slave holders called people who are against the government taking over a 6th of the US economy the equivalent of slave holders.
Ironic, isn’t it?
Mr. Reid, it’s about time you got on the right side of history.
