Democratic pollster Pat Caddell was visibly upset at the response Sen. Harry Reid gave after Republicans swept to victory Tuesday night, ensuring that Reid would lose his status as Senate majority leader.
Reid issued a statement saying, "I'd like to congratulate Sen. [Mitch] McConnell, who will be the new Senate majority leader. The message from voters is clear: They want us to work together. I look forward to working with Sen. McConnell to get things done for the middle class."
Fox News anchor Eric Shawn asked Caddell how Reid could make such a statement after he had spent his leadership blocking amendments from both parties.
"He could be on the Chicago Bears," Shawn suggested, prompting Caddell to respond, "Actually, he should be in the Chicago mob."
Caddell said he is upset that the GOP has not taken on the fact that Reid "became a dictator," allowing only 19 amendments in the past session.
"The man is a disgrace to democracy," Caddell said. "I want to say this as a Democrat: I think at some point you should stand up for your country as an American."
