Quotable: Harry Reid on the Republican opposition

comment

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tells the Huffington Post that his Democrats are in pretty good shape to hold the Senate in the fall elections. In Hawaii, Montana, Wisconsin and Massachusetts, the Democratic candidates have pulled ahead, Reid says.

And then he added—

"We feel comfortable in the Senate," [Reid] said. "Where the problem is, is this: Because of the Citizens United decision, Karl Rove and the Republicans are looking forward to a breakfast the day after the election. They are going to assemble 17 angry old white men for breakfast, some of them will slobber in their food, some will have scrambled eggs, some will have oatmeal, their teeth are gone. But these 17 angry old white men will say, 'Hey, we just bought America. Wasn't so bad. We still have a whole lot of money left.'"

"So that's the only problem we have with our candidates," Reid said.

That, and there are more than 17 of them, Harry.
