This is VERY unlike Reid. The man is a wonky transactional leader who rarely demonstrates emotion, and I had a professor in grad school that had worked for him at one point and described him similarly off-camera. Him exploding at a news personality just shows how bitter Democrats are that the Republican strategy is working. They're targeting the horridly unpopular Obamacare so they actually have quite a few people on their side of the fight this time; and the Dems keep trying to focus on their tactics but those piecemeal funding bills are derailing all that and making Dems hold things up just as much. So much so that even the Dems' own pet media like CNN has no choice but to question the Dems over it. Face it Harry, this time you lose.
