    I'll not try to change you mind. My beef is not with Obama, it is with Reid.
    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.

    There are 93 judicial openings that Obama can now fill..You only have McConnell to blame for pushing this one over the cliff..McConnell could have allowed a few here and a few there..Now he will get 93 shoved up his ass where they belong .

    And 93 more to come to break the overall 390-390 tie..RepubLies will rue the day they pushed this too far, and that doesn't take into account the very lengthy times involved in approving, another stage of nullifying Obama.

    Enjoy it Linc, I just wonder what is down the road when someone like McConnell become Senate Majority Leader if he won't pull this option out of his hat time and time again. Like it or not, the precedence has been set. As to the future, it is all open game. This was just the first bomb, missile what ever to be dropped or fired, how many more to come? I do not trust Reid or McConnell, apparently you do.

    Schumer would have pulled the plug without Reid around, probably sooner..ReoubLies got exactly what they deserved today..When would you have filled the 93 openings on the Federal Courts??They will now be filled toot sweet .

    Someone...if it was you I apologize for not remembering... mentioned earlier that they were wondering why Reid would make this move now, at this particular time? What's coming up to be voted on that might not have made it under the old rules? It just seems odd since we have another debt ceiling confrontation looming that you would think would be on everyone's front burner, not appointees to District courts.....Time will tell us, I guess.

    Your fears of the US becoming a communist state because we may adopt a few socialist programs are ridiculous.
