    you mean the GOP will expand the Sen. Frist option to include SCOTUS Justices and whatever the **** else they want..Now you know why the fight over voting rights and PPACA is to the very bitterest end--to get the Senate..Repubs were fully exposed to the American people today .

    Hmmm, if that's true, and it doesn't sound right because Clinton had the same trouble, could easily be that points to Obama being ****ty where it comes to making judicial appointments.

    Ok, are you TOO asserting 'ALL OF THEM'?

    I didn't think so...
    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!

    ... I don't mean to nitpick, but your list only shows the ones which have been appointed. It doesn't show which ones have been filibustered. One can be filibustered and still be appointed once the filibuster ends. The weight is on him to show that ALL of them have been filibustered - you showing which ones have been appointed does nothing to contradict his claim.... or maybe I'm wrong about filibusters.

    That use of the word under is common parlance going back centuries when speaking about a national leader.
    I would use the same terminology for any president.
    Read into it what you will,... If you must but navy Pride used the term "under Obama" as well.
    Eh, no. He is the leader of a government in a country I happen to reside. To be someone's leader means that one must follow. I turned my back long ago.

    No, no... no need in explaining your word choice, it was just an observation...

    Enjoy it my friend. One better hope come 2016 that the Republicans do not retain the house, gain control of the senate and the presidency. If they do, you can count on them to use the Senator Harry Reid Option or Precedence to repeal Obamacare, to cut taxes on the rich, to do away with the EPA and so on. Mark my word, the Republicans will use the Senator Harry Reid Option to the max. When they do this, no Democrat at all should complain or holler, after all this is exactly what they wanted. Hurray.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    What kind is that?

    Reagan? I already stated he was not a favorite of mine.

    Oh, hehehe, were you pulling out the race card?

    Good lord...

    Yeah, I dislike both Reid and McConnell. Both put their party way ahead of country and anything else. If Mitchell and Dole were in charge of the senate, this wouldn't have come to a vote, it wouldn't even have been threaten. Heck, even Daschle and Lott wouldn't have let it get this far. I tell you this, I never seen this coming.

They've probably never even heard of Shalamov or Solzhenitsyn and have no idea how a political concept that starts with noble intentions becomes warped into tyranny.
    I am not so young that I don't remember the tyrannical nature of many communist states and there are lots of tyrannical states that are not socialist in nature today. But social democracy does not have to lead down any path ...it can be an end in itself.
    Look at modern Germany.

    But he hasn't been able to due to unrelated events, like two dozen phony scandals..
    The filibuster was wrong, but what happened to day was ten times worse.
    It is about nominees but play your "worse" games if you must..
    What Senator Reid has done is to abolish the rights of the minority party.
    Reid has temporarily stopped the "wrongs" of the minority party, not their rights..
    Perhaps this may be the only time Reid will use it, may be he will use it again and again on different nominees
    he must continue to use it again on nominees held up due to TEAparty primaries back home--at no time has he brought up SCOTUS nominees--please clean this noise up
    then on to legislation.
    No Dem., especially Sen. Reid, has ever brought up legislation..please clean this up also..And, you can be sure McConnell will push this legislative filibuster to create another crisis .
