"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

The Failures of Senate Majority Leader Frist

Robert Novak writes how Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) has effectively dismantled Republican leadership despite having a 10-seat majority. In essence, Reid has taken control of the Senate, demonstrating Frist's inept leadership role. Novak writes:

Just before the [Easter] recess began, Reid blocked immigration reform legislation scheduled by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist. Earlier, the minority leader had torpedoed asbestos litigation reform, also put on the Senate floor by Frist. No minority leader has so dominated the Senate since Lyndon B. Johnson in 1953-54.

Actually, Frist had turned over floor management on both immigration and asbestos litigation to the Judiciary Committee chairman, Sen. Arlen Specter. That makes Specter one for three against Reid, who lost out on the two U.S. Supreme Court confirmations.

Reid has absolutely no leadership qualities, he is the master of flame throwing and blame. It's unfortunate the Republican side is so weak and unable to speak up and sink Reid's ship of aggression. Reid's attack machine runs full throttle, has gained steam and resulted in forming a majority this country didn't vote for.

Frist wants to be President, as Senate Majority Leader he is the Emperor Without Clothes!
