Reid: Both parties need to compromise in Senate
Google ^ | 11/3/10 | ap

Posted on 11/03/2010 5:22:51 AM PDT by mdittmar

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says lawmakers of both parties need to start working together now that Republicans have reduced the Democrats' dominance in the chamber.

Reid said on NBC's "Today" show that he planned to speak Wednesday with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on ways to "build a consensus and move this country along."

Senate Democrats lost at least six seats on Election Day, but narrowly held their majority.

any chance we can replace McConnell with DeMint as the Senate Minority Leader?

DeMint can “school” Dingy Harry properly but I have little confidence in McConnell

“build a consensus” equals letting the left have their way.

Maybe there are enough new R faces coming into the Senate to counter McCain, Graham, Collins, Snowe, etc.

It is going to be more difficult, even with those Cross-over Republicans, to get 60 votes for cloture.

You have to assume that Nevada deserves what it gets. 17% unemployment Obama policies, abject stupidity. The same goes for California. If they want to be the bastion for socialism and decay while the rest of the country strives to get out of this democratically-induced depression, so be it. Conservatives should be heartened by the 63+ seat pickup in the house, the Senate and governorship pickups as well as the massive state legislature pickups.

I thought of taking a trip to Las Vegas this fall since I have not been there for several years. Now I don’t think I want to. Maybe I should email the visitor center there and tell them I am “boycotting.”

I hope the word filibuster becomes a household word, and Mcstain, Gramnesty, Snow, and Collins, don’t ruin everything.

I don't want to hear ONE COMPLAINT from the people of Nevada EVER!

You have the highest foreclosure rate and highest unemployment rate in the country and you just re-elected the man who had a lot to do with both of those things.

Consensus?

No, thank you.

The Democrat definition of consensus is: give us liberals what we want and we won’t trash you in the press too much.

If conservatives are going to be trashed by the LSM anyway, they might as well do what’s right.

I still cannot believe that this many Nevadans are this stupid.

Hell, looking at the map, I can't believe this many Americans are still this stupid.

I thought I'd feel some glimmer of hope this morning that the Great American Experiment wouldn't be dashed on the rocks in my lifetime, but I truly don't.

This guy, like the POS in the whitehouse, is a partisan POS.
If his mouth is moving, you know he is lying.

(o)bama will be saying the same thing today, they are probably programing the Tele-prompter to have his say just that. When either of they utter that phrase, the first question out of a fair media would be, where do you see areas of compromise? The answer, well, er, ah, you know, there are too many of them to answer.

This was set up by both POSs that is they have removed any dems from both the house and senate who might have compromised, all that is left are the extreme hardliners and true believers. We purged their problems is the way they look at it.

Watched a few other news shows, of the libtard ilk... they were all saying the same thing... “now we’re going to have to come together and work together to get things done”, was the gist of it. Well how about when you libs had complete control, no need to work together then I guess, huh? FU!
