Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is already saying that he will refuse to work with Mitt Romney if he is elected president, the Washington Times reported.

"Mitt Romney's fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his 'severely conservative' agenda is laughable," Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, said in a statement on Friday.

Romney has pointed to his record in Massachusetts as evidence he can work with Democrats and Reid. Romney has been campaigning on the idea that he will be the post-partisan leader that President Barack Obama failed to be.

If elected, Romney would have to work closely with Reid, who determines which bills make it to the floor.

"Mitt Romney has demonstrated that he lacks the courage to stand up to the tea party, kowtowing to their demands time and again. There is nothing in Mitt Romney's record to suggest he would act any differently as president," Reid said.

Seth McLaughlin previewed the idea of Reid’s intransigence recently, writing in the Times:

". . . Spinning that campaign rhetoric into a legislative reality will be easier said than done — namely, because anything that Mr. Romney wants to accomplish will have to go through Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the biggest Democratic power broker on Capitol Hill, if Mr. Reid's party retains control of the Senate in next week's elections."
