November 6, 2008: (Referring to the at-that-time-embattled senator Lieberman) “It is highly unlikely that Democrats would act against the wishes of Majority Leader Reid.”

November 18, 2008: “Asked what it would mean if Lieberman kept his chairmanship, one Senate Democratic aide said bluntly: “The left has been foiled again. They can rant and rage but they still do not put the fear into folks to actually change their votes. Their influence would be in question.”

November 20, 2009: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: “We all can throw all the barbs we want at the three people who fly down here on their corporate jets. But we’re concerned not about them, we’re concerned about the hundreds of thousands and millions of people who are involved in the automobile industry who want these jobs and who need these jobs, we want them to have the jobs. We want them to work and come up with a proposal that we can get through here by Dec. 8. ”

November 20, 2008:These idiot [auto industry] CEO’s [SIC] are not helping themselves and they need to change their King Maker mentality very fast or they will go down in flames. Asking for a rescue package while flying in on private jets is freaking ludicrous.”

It looks like someone has to “change their King Maker mentality” and something tells me it’s not going to be “these [or any other] idiot CEOs.”
