Reid Enjoys Role of Attack Dog

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) "has adopted the role of attack dog with relish" repeatedly bashing Mitt Romney for not releasing his tax returns, The Hill reports.

"It's an unusual brawl from the standpoint that congressional leaders usually moderate their rhetoric and also because he and Romney are two of the highest profile Mormons in national politics."
 
"It's a reprise of Reid's tactics in the 2008 election, when he called Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the GOP nominee, "erratic" and declared he did not have the temperament to be president. Reid famously announced that year he could not stand McCain, a long-time colleague. It was a shocking statement in the clubby Senate."
