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.
tell it to governor christie in new jerseyI 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.
don't get down, be strong

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
Harry Reid?s botched battles - Manu Raju and Jonathan Allen - POLITICO.comGay 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 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.
One of you will end up here next!
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.Quote Originally Posted by TacticalEvilDan View Post

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.
