Thoughtful Senators Should Stop Reid

February 4, 2013

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid already is well on his way to making that house of Congress a rubber stamp for whatever he, often at the behest of President Barack Obama, wants to do....

When Obama was a senator, he and Reid were both on record as supporting filibusters since they were in the minority and it was a procedure to protect the minority from the tyranny of a slim majority. Obama and Reid attacked the Bush-era budget deficits as extravagant and unpatriotic in that they caused the debt ceiling to be raised. Obama/Reid deficits are 3 times those of Geo. Bush. The stench of hypocrisy is overwhelming in this administration's policies. If the Dems do get rid of the filibuster, the Republicans MUST return the favor in spades when they inevitably regain the majority.

The republican filibusters have been 3 times as many in four years as the democrats were in 34 years! That is why Reid wants something done. Yes, if republicans gain control then they get those rules as has always been done. Nothing new said here, FedUpL8ly. Obama/Reid deficits are NOT 3 times those of Bush! You probably are not counting the two wars as Bush never had them in his budget.

Hmmm..the dems controlled the congress for so long they forgot it wasn't their personal property. In 96 hey were traumatrised by Gingrich and again with Boehner. They're just hypocrites.

I've always been of the opinion that when the president and senate majority leader are from the same party, they tend to agree on issues. Especially true when the re-elected president was elected in a landslide vote, and rejection of the opposition.

Stay tuned for whaty's coming up next during the sequester battle. Then we'll seem what Uncle Harry and Obama are made of. Oh and madman, in case you didn't notice the House was won by the good guys by a wide margin.

If the Republicans were not abusing the use of the filibuster, this wouldn't have happened. Our founding fathers did not intend that the threat of a filibuster was to be used on every vote. Why shouldn't Harry Reid and the Democratic senators support the policies of a president of the same party? More sour grapes from the Party of No.

so--are we finished with this topic, now that it's been determined without argument, that this "cover-up" was all a right wing and fox supported scam? And the accusations from fox and fans directed at hillary were baseless and failed miserably.

Gravelpitt, why don't you tell that to the families of the murdered victims. And just wondering, do you really believe the video being taken by the droan was recorded on tape? It has been acknowledged that individuals were watching the live feed. Maybe Obama was playing golf, and Hillary had cramps?

Washington (CNN) -- Thanks to testimony and "real-time" video, lawmakers said they got their clearest picture yet Thursday of the deadly attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya, though questions and tensions remain as to how President Barack Obama's administration handled the matter.

Gio- First off, the only place your statements are agreed upon are in your head (OK,maybe Howard's too) but your "landslide" is a joke. What is your response to Obama's popularity when he got 9 million fewer votes in 2012 than 2008? If Romney had run a good campaign, he would have won despite the flagrant voter fraud. And Howard, you and Donkeyboy can't seem to figure out the cause and effect relationship between Harry Reid's bypassing committees and debates and then filling up the amendment tree. THEY are the reasons for so many filibusters! And if you don't understand the historical way of passing a bill in the Senate or what the "amendment tree" is, please ask and I'll be happy to explain it to you.

Also to Gio, I have a nephew (software engineer) who worked side by side with a pilot to fly drones and I assure you a "live feed" is necessary to fly drones.

Fedup you are hysterical. You still can't get over the fact your boy Mitt got his arse kicked in popular vote and in electoral vote. WHO CARES how many less votes President Obama got in 2012..he still comfortably won the election because your party dismisses any minority group as being important. And you, and you pal Sean Hannity can make as many excuses as you want. As a matter of fact, don't change your way of thinking, or don't change a thing for the 2016 elections. And you will still be here come 2016 making excuses when your boys Rubio or Ryan get their butts kicked. You just don't get it, nor does your party.

I asked before but will ask again. What is not a real time video? Real time video sounds like an oxymoron to me. Can a video take pictures of something that is not in real time? You must be talking about the stars. I guess that would not be a real time video.

Howie - your question "Can a video take pictures of something that is not in real time"? I believe a video camera RECORDS the events taking place. For the slow thinkers like gioallie (gravelpitt) and you - let's change the term "real time video" to LIVE STREAMING video which means from camera to video screeen so individuals can WATCH the action as IT HAPPENS.

Madman - I find your term "your BOY Mitt" offensive. Imagine the outrage if a conservative had used that term about Obama. Once again the left loves "do as I say, not as I do".

If that's offensive, how do lyhou explain pulling my "there is no evidence Obama haas ever been ahything but an organizer"? You have real thing skin for somebody with such vocal opinions.

Hero is a great description of someone gravelpitt, or so I thought. Such as the winner of the Congessional medal of honor was a HERO. And what's wrong with "the prince"? I hear about Prince Henry all the time? Here's a few more you might like - the ONE, the Second Coming, King and Chief, God, Leader and Ruler of the Free World - want me to continue?

2 more examples of why they lost and were rejected by the electorate, and will continue to be rejected by the "people." But, please continue.

I am a slow thinker because you keep referring to real time video as if there is an alternative. You believe that President Obama and Hillary Clinton were watching the live feed of the attack. There is nothing that will ever convince you, Seadog, of that conspiracy theory so live in your world and have fun with that - I really mean it - it is your heart and soul to love all that is conservative and hate all that is liberal and you should pursue your desires as this great country with it's constitution is set up for everyone to do. Those that may have been watching in real time - would they be able to tell exactly every detail and answer all questions correctly within seconds of the attack as you insist upon knowing? Maybe, but I seriously doubt it.
