(Jarrod Agen) – When President Obama joins Harry Reid in Las Vegas today, Barack is looking into his future…and it is not good for him.
Harry Reid is the closest thing this election to Barack Obama’s name being on the ballot. Reid and Obama are the most powerful men in Washington. They are responsible for just about every piece of legislation that has been passed over the past two years and, therefore, it is impossible to separate them.
The outrage that has helped surge Sharron Angle ahead in the polls and fueled an influx of $14 million into her campaign, is an outrage at President Obama and Harry Reid together.
Despite his Washington power, Reid is staring at defeat from an insurgent grandmother from Reno.
President Obama knows that two years from now, he very likely could be standing in a similar position – fighting for his political life before a frustrated electorate who are angry that the change they had been promised was nothing more than empty rhetoric.
Harry Reid is the “Ghost of Elections Future” for President Obama. It is for this reason that the President is trying desperately to prevent Harry’s demise. But Reid’s fate has likely already been sealed and every vote cast against Harry Reid is also an early vote against President Obama.
