Ths isan amazing collage of Democrats arguing the death of Democracy if reconcilliation is ever to be used. It is very eye-opening. A must watch.

Reconciliation is one thing, but the only way to pass their bill will be to go to the nuclear option to end debate. I would hope half the country will go ballistic if that happens.

This post is smoking gun proof that the dems are wilfully destroying American Freedom if they use Reconcilation as they seem to want to. Obama is clear on his views here. Joe Biden even invoked God.

So, now, everyone knowes where they stand.

Yes, pathetic hypocrites is right. Dangerous hypocrites may be more like it.

Speaking of hypocrisy, I don't know where you yourself stood on the issue years ago, but I do remember where I did.

I was against the "nuclear" option, as it was termed.

I took some heat for it too, right here at FR. So what I mean to say is, if these same folks are against it now, but were for it then...well, you do the math. The trouble is, I can't recall exactly who my protagonists were. The better news is that there were a few others here who dared to oppose the option openly on this forum. So not all here are hypocrites, but on this issue, we have more than a few who in the least, should be eating their words (of five yrs ago).

Wasn’t used. This was the birth of the “Gang of 14”, spearheaded by election-time conservative McCain, and ultimate rule-changer Sheets Byrd.

It was referring to judicial filibusters of Bush’s nominees. A majority wanted to approve them, but the Democrats insisted on 60. Now that it’s reversed, the Rats want to change the rules...again...if I recall, their wanting to change the rules to fit themselves is the reason the number is now AT 60, down from 2/3 (thank you, Sheets Byrd).

No, to the Republican's credit they DID NOT go nuclear!!! The Dems were going on and on...and this was concerning Presidential appointments...not the bigger stuff, which is legislation.

'So as it stands now, the Dems want to GO NUCLEAR with the biggest, most far reaching legislative change since Roosevelt.

Present Democrat Party hypocrisy know no bounds! It's off the charts.

I remember this, and felt Bush was violating conservative principles of Government restraint.

The “nuke” option should never be used to bypass the Representative form of governing.
That is tyranny.
Interesting that the Dums hold majorities in Both branches of Government YET they find it necessary to FORCE their c/f/s agenda on the PEOPLE.
11-2010 can’t wait.

Biden making the comment about when they are back in power is hysterical....

What a bunch of buffoons...

and of course, Obama has bypassed the Senate over and over again with his appointment of Czars.

I think I like 2/3 better, myself. It forces both parties closer to reality, and can put the brakes on populist demagogue sourced, buy-me-some-votes-with-taxpayer-money legislation originating in the lower chamber (House of Representatives). Hopefully.

Requiring 2/3 vote to pass the Senate --- it better be good --- or we can do without it --- or sorry charlie, clean it up and try again, etc.

The folks in the Senate who talk the most about wanting "bi-partisanship" should be made to put their real votes where their mouth is, and push for the 2/3 rule to be brought back.

Thanks! I’m kind of glad they didn’t go throught with it, maybe it will help with their cause. By the way, I just found a list of bills that reconcilliation was used for and posted it, if you are interested.

I didn’t mean it that way, the “cause” I spoke of was getting rid of this healthcare monstrosity. I think on this issue we can all agree. Sorry if I didn’t make myself clear.

AND plagerizer.
From Slate no less:Unfortunately for Biden, more revelations of plagiarism followed, distracting him from the Bork hearings. Over the next days, it emerged that Biden had lifted significant portions of speeches from Robert Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey. From Kennedy, he took four long sentences in one case and two memorable sentences in another. (In one account, Biden said that Pat Caddell had inserted them in his speech without Biden’s knowledge; in another account, the failure to credit RFK was chalked up to the hasty cutting and pasting that went into the speech.) From Humphrey, the hot passage was a particularly affecting appeal for government to help the neediest. Yet another uncited borrowing came from John F. Kennedy.

....
Lying comes natural to Biden!

See my profile page. Biden took to lying (by omission) when he slammed Justice Thomas in his OPENING REMARKS at the Thomas appointment hearings.

I remember that!

He is the worst kind of speaker.

He lifts other peoples thoughts. selectively quotes others writings etc. And cobbles together a lie.

This is evidence of sheer ignorance? Laziness? or outright practice of deception.

I submit he is guilty of all three.
