Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D- Nevada) beat Republican candidate Sharron Angle in a close race last night. In his upcoming memoir, President George W. Bush reportedly has some harsh words for the Congressional leader.
The New York Times examined a leaked copy of Bush’s memoir, Decision Points: “He takes Senator Harry M. Reid of Nevada, the Democratic majority leader, to task for saying during the worst of the violence in Iraq that the war was lost, calling that ‘one of the most irresponsible acts I witnessed’ in Washington … He also recalls sharp exchanges with other officials.”
Following Republican victories around the country, everyone will look to Bush’s memoir next week for clues about the tumultuous 2010 election. Reid published a statement this morning urging leaders to search for “shared solutions to our shared problems.”
