Rachel Maddow’s Anger At U.S. Senate: ‘Game Over’ For Support From Obama Base?
by Colby Hall | 10:22 am, December 17th, 2010

Last night the U.S. Senate voted on a bill that will extend the current Tax Cuts first put into place by President Bush after Senator Harry Reid appeared to capitulate to the threat of a Republican filibuster. This appeared to frustrate, if not anger MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow last night, and not only because it messed up the rundown of her show. It understandably irked the self-described progressive because it was just another example of, as she put it, “this phenom of passing bills in the house only to see it die in the Senate.”

Maddow ran trough a litany of examples where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was successful in moving legislation consistent with both Obama’s and the progressive agenda forward through the House, only to see it die in the U.S. Senate. Then Maddow made very clear the stakes put forth by Senator Reid’s consistent surrender to the GOP:

With the endless obstructions and delay tactics. The margins that Democrats have over Republicans has been equal. Things have died in the Senate, not because Democrats didn’t have the votes. They had the votes. The senate broke. Without President Obama recognizing that is the U.S. Senate and acknowledging it is a broken institution that may be should be fixed, it’s sort of game over in terms of the rest of his agenda. It’s therefore sort of game over for his support from his base. Especially with a whole slew of Republicans on their way to Washington in January.

Rachael, the Senate "may be should be fixed" in November 2012, and so will the White House. Just hang on.

I guess that should also apply to the SCOTUS and any other constitutional entity that doesn't serve her agenda....

Yeah, I hear ya. They can bitch and moan all they want but lord knows that they aren’t voting for any Repubs in his place. Just say two words to a lib and it will send them back into Obumble’s waiting arms: Sarah Palin.

I am saying this as a huge Palin fan who plans on only voting for her, whether she is on the ballot, or not.

No, it will still be all the atheists, union pinky-rings, welfare grandmothers, abortion enthusiasts, condom-throwers, Boy Scout-hating lesbians, hand-wringing college professors, Hollywood drunks, and all the rest of the America-hating parasites, losers, "victims", and goofballs who comprise the Democrat party base.

I’m sure Madcow would be in favor of Barry packing the Supreme Court with another three members of his choosing as she considers it broken too.

"Yeah we are not going to support Obummer anymore Blah, Blah, Blah......Yawn."

Broken record. This guy is going to get his buddies on the bandwagon again in two years.

I like this guy Madcows haircut, does anyone know his barber?

Where can they get someone further to the left than Obama?

Mao is dead. And Fidel Castro is too old. Hugo Chavez is Obama’s buddy, so I don’t think he’d relocate.

I like this Maddow fellow. He is really out front and center with his lib silliness. I've heard he's still single...here's hoping he'll find a nice girl to settle down with.

I dunno. Guys that angry tend to do poorly at the local watering hole. Maybe a little Prozac, clean him up a bit, introduce him to a couple of really tolerant, understanding girls and hope for the best.

More idle and empty threats -

Until The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) runs more viable candidates, lefties like Rachel Madcow won’t have anyone other than democrats to vote for.

Watch out, this dyke is a Rhodes Scholar in the fine art of throwing feces at a wall and hoping it sticks, or better known as a "Master" in soft sciences.

On a serious note however, she has some excellent studying skills (Being a Rhodes Scholar is nothing to sneeze at) but her world view is sadly skewed (Maybe geared towards how she gets her genitalia "off" and an illogical bleeding heart). Prayers for her and the rest of the blinded "progressives"...

It’s a start. Maybe Maddow can convince her viewers to stay at home in ‘12. All six of them.

Her grammer is terrible.

Subject does not match the verb.

Also, she may be intelligent, but she has no wisdom, only snark.

Er..Ah..I don’t think “give her a licking” means the same to her as it does you.

There are exceptions to any rule or generalization, but have you ever noticed the connections between lesbians and the progressives? I would venture to guess that there is an inverse proportionality between lesbianism and theism, too. It seems that you have to be a homosexual in order to full grasp the worldview of a liberal or progressive, which is why heterosexuals and Christians have a difficult time in understanding how someone can be a liberal/socialist/Marxist/progressive.

And altogether that’s about 35% of the voters (mostly because of the hugely bloated government unions).

Yep... and the affirmative action president Ubama got 53% of the vote... which means that it was normal, working, traditional American families who ultimately tipped the balance. There is no antidote for brazen, malicious stupidity.
