    The fact that all those people are too stupid to blame the Republicans who actually shot it down is proof of . . . what, exactly?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    i haven't blamed anyone, friend, i've merely reported reactions, ie, i've merely observed

    I sure hope the Republicans get a filibuster-proof majority, or it's going to suck to be them when they fail to live up to their mandate.

    Prof,

    No Super Majority means no progress for Republican positions. Not only can they not get 60 votes in the Senate, but they also can't get Obama to sign off on them. The next 2 years are going to suck for Republicans a great deal. They won't be able to do ****.

    yes, this was purely a political ploy

    and it exploded in the speaker's perplexed puss

    unfortunately, leadership is simply clueless

    Gay rights groups were upset that the process Reid employed may have undermined progress in repealing the Pentagon’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy prohibiting gays from serving openly in the military.

    Hispanic groups were disappointed that they couldn’t even get a vote on a narrow piece of comprehensive immigration reform — an amendment known as the DREAM Act that would have enabled citizenship for illegal immigrant students in exchange for government or military service.

    And Democrats on both sides of the Capitol are unhappy that a debate on gay rights and immigration distracted yet again from issue No. 1: jobs.

    I will say whatever the **** whenever the **** I want and however the **** I want.

    I hope you enjoy your party's wins because they don't matter worth **** now. They have been stalling economic recovery in order to get re-elected, well maybe it is time they get a taste of their own ****ing medicine.

    We should just change the constitution to say 60 votes in the senate already. That's the point we've come to anyway, thanks to the idiotic filibuster rules the Senate has.

    I think what you must have meant to say was these two can get the credit for stopping the attempt to pass the Dream act cloaked in the Military spending Bill and all it is, is a stealth Amnesty Plan. All the Left has done is lie about who it covers for days.

    By the way Reid actually did vote against his own Bill so he could try to bring it back in the Lame Duck session. With any luck it will fail again then.
