Why Are So Many People Mad with Harry Reid?

hreid.jpg

Sen. Harry Reid has never been really popular but his negatives are dangerously, some say even terminally, high. Republicans say he is no longer the independent Nevadan that he was when he was sent to Washington, but has become a major force for the liberal agenda in Washington. But is that enough to generate all the anger that is now focused on him? Has he been victimized by the circumstances of the recession and historically high unemployment in Nevada? Or has he simply failed to deliver what he says he has?
