We don't believe you, you need more people...

Harry Reid flexes:

Reid, who lambasted the GOP-led Congress for being a rubber stamp for President Bush, indicated that he will not bow to the Obama administration.

Reid stated, "I don't believe in the executive power trumping everything... I believe in our Constitution, three separate but equal branches of government."

"If Obama steps over the bounds, I will tell him. ... I do not work for Barack Obama. I work with him," he said.

Harry Reid needs to take his baby moms advice. Seriously, you want a majority leader who's going to hold the president accountable. But after watching Reid get waxed by Blago, I don't think he's the guy to do it.
