Reid Remembers Who's Commander In Chief

Yes, I know people on the right side of the political spectrum double talk all the time, too. I'll leave it to the people at at Koz to cover that though.

Not that a clear message about Iraq has ever been Harry Reid's strong point, but:

Directly following the election, promising the Democrats would take control and fix Iraq:

"The days of the do-nothing Congress are over," declared Democratic Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, in line to become majority leader. "In Iraq and here at home, Americans have made clear they are tired of the failures of the last six years."

- Washington Post, November 9, 2006

And, today, post-Democratic victory, dropping Iraq responsibilities squarely back into the lap of the President:

"The president has the ball in his court now. It is up to President Bush to implement the recommendations of this commission," said Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada.

Some things in politics never change. Some related advice to those with political aspirations from McQ over at Q&O: be careful what you run on.
