Video: Reid celebrates “big day in America”

If Harry Reid wasn’t already finished in politics, this clip would absolutely bury him. As it is, it suffices as an example of the blindness of Beltway living. Celebrating the loss of 36,000 jobs in the American economy in February may be one of the most clueless political statements ever seen:
We lost 26,000 in January, which means the rate of job loss per day went up rather significantly. That qualifies as a “big day”? Is this what Democrats see as an improvement? It certainly speaks to the expectations they want to set with the American people, and should win the George Orwell Award.
