    Thats pretty much what I was referring to in the "scorched earth" approach. If thats the case, Reid is pretty short sighted as this could very well cascade and turn the Senate into a simple a majority voting body. Personally, view that as a bad idea as in its current form, its a stabilizing force for the House. Who knows, time will tell.

    Reid will not "go nuclear".
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    I just hope the GOP doesn't put up another candidate like Angle in 2016 so we can finally get rid of him in Nevada.

    Oh DAMN. I thought Reid had been involved in a lab accident and accidentally caused a criticallity incident with some left over Uranium-239.

    That said, one of Obama' Nominees is Mel Watt. Talk about the Fox guarding the Hen House.

    What goes around comes around. If Reid wants to set this as a standard so be it.
    In the mean time, democrat policies in action continue to fail like its cool.

    What's the nuclear option? - CNN.com

    I seem to remember when this was considered before the Democrats were in charge (8 years or so ago) that this was a big deal, reading this from CNN and its presented as no big deal at all. "shocking"

    You know with these volatile times, it was only a matter of time I guess. I had the hope that the Dem/Rep would come to a compromise, but it seems that time has come and gone. The whole issue with this is not what happens now, but what happens in the future.

    This doesn't block filibustering of policy, just filibustering of judicial appointments other than SCOTUS appointments sooooo...... what are you talking about?
