Reid praises ‘good’ Republicans

Speaking to liberal activists at Netroots Nation last weekend, Senator Harry Reid, reminded progressives that good Senate Republicans exist. Two of them.

“Remember also, don’t badmouth all Republicans, because the Senate Republicans do not represent mainstream Republicans throughout this country.” Reid said, “We have two moderate Republican senators and I will always respect and admire, and do everything I can to recognize that they are good senators. (Sens.) Snowe and Collins from Maine.”

“I just hope I don’t get them into trouble for saying nice things to them here.” he added.

Looks like Sen. Scott Brown didn’t make the cut, even though he joined Snowe and Collins, voting to move the controversial financial bill forward.
