Harry Reid to change Senate rules so he can be a dictator too


I am trying to get myself off the ledge and remain a warrior. Not a happy one, and feeling more like a Historian at the time of the Roman empire. That said, as they say, the higher the rise, the faster the fall.  Now it is Obama’s tenure. No longer can Bush be blamed. So here we go in the new bi-partisan approach that will bring us all together.

Looks like Reid is going to bore down similar to Obama. I guess the rule change regarding Obamacare wasn’t enough. Nothing like the taste acquired for those who chose power over the law. Forget that Reid refuses to let any of the hundreds of bills passed by the House ever see the light of day over at his venue, Forget no budget has been passed by the Senate. So here we go, let’s get this government dismantled and quick. First, a memory from Harry. He thinks we smell.

 

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) pledged on Wednesday to change the rules of the Senate so that the minority party has fewer tools to obstruct legislative business. (The GOP is so annoying-don’t you just hate having three branches)?

In his first post-election press conference, the Nevada Democrat said he wouldn’t go so far as to eliminate the filibuster, which requires 60 votes for the chamber to enter and exit the amendment and debate process. But in remarks meant to preview a more combative approach during the next session, he warned Republicans that obstructionism as a tactic won’t be tolerated — or as technically feasible. (Combative-now that is a new approach-Boehner, please don’t cry).

“I want to work together, but I also want everyone to also understand, you cannot push us around. We want to work together,” Reid said. (This is where you chuckle)

“I do” have plans to change the Senate rules, he added. “I have said so publicly and I continue to feel that way … I think the rules have been abused, and we are going to work to change them. We will not do away with the filibuster, but we will make the senate a more meaningful place. We are going to make it so we can get things done.”

    There is not enough time left in my life to chronologize the malfeasance of this democrat tool! This sorry little man serves no other purpose than to block any attempt to fix America and promote the left wing agenda to make America just another nation of rich (of which he is one) and poor…BASTARD… ALL hail obama….(Rich). I’m glad I’m old… it makes me sad & sick to see what is happening to our banana republic, oops did I say that?

    It looks like Reid is going to be Obama’s ‘mini me.’
    He saw Obama grab power and thought it looked like a good idea and now he is doing the same.

    • bunkerville Says:

      Monkey see, monkey do. Soon I will not be able to say that, so what the heck.

  4. TexasFred Says:

    Ya know, there’s no real point in complaining now… Who’s going to listen? And more importantly, WHO would dare to intervene in ANY matter involving Obama, Pelosi and Reid now??

    • bunkerville Says:

      One wonders if it is worth the time to blog. My regulars from Pakistan, UAE, Syria and Kenya might miss me. I am sure they are enjoying this.

    Remember we were concerned that there wouldn’t be an election at all? Rather than declaring Marshall Law it seems they devised the subtle ‘hack job’ of number manipulation, accomplishing the same outcome.
    Just as Reid has the Union thugs backing him, esp. in NV – Vegas – their definition of ‘change’ is “steal, rob and rape” under the guise of “the best interest of the Nation”.
    Pathetic Boehner is right there to be the waging tail – another waste – where he come from anyway! What ‘stinks’ is them and their twisted, perverted souls.
    Theirs is the socio-psyco path – hell bent and wanting to worm hole all they can as they go. Stay the Course Bunker – History shows there is a resurrection worthy of breathing sweet air!

      I only pray I live to see it.

    • TexasFred Says:

      Martial Law…

    Could be bluster at this point. Who knows? I do know the dictatorial democrats are tired of the republicans getting in the way and gumming things up, so I could see this happening.
    Welcome to Obama’s America!

    • bunkerville Says:

      The problem is they never had to deal with them the first two years and are stunned how it is suppose to work.

  7. Conservatives on Fire Says:

    They only have one political party in Cuba, too. Way to go, Comrade Reid!

      Here we go!
