I hope he scraps it, we will own the Senate again some day and it will be VERY handy not to have to deal with this then.
Besides we control the house.
“we will own the Senate again some day”
Wishful thinking. We been through two election cycles where the Republicans should have captured the Senate. A combination of poor candidates and candidate gaffes kept Harry Reid in place. Why would we believe 2014 will be any different? Is GOP suddenly going to get smart in its candidate selection? Are candidates going to get smart and refuse to take the bait when talking to the media? Somehow I think not.
Looking at my own state of North Carolina, Democrat Senator Kay Hagan should be vulnerable in 2014. She is very ambitious and votes almost 100% with the party elite as instructed by her mentor Chuck Schumer. The Republicans should already have a candidate in waiting to pick off this seat, just as the GOP should have beaten Bill Nelson in Florida. However, if the party waits until 2014 to select a candidate and start campaigning, Kay will be going back to Washington in January 2015.
“I hope he scraps it, we will own the Senate again some day and it will be VERY handy not to have to deal with this then.”
Do you reallly believe that these rule changes will not be unmade during a lame duck right before republicans take over? And media outrage will occur if the new republicans try to put them back, causing the new republicans to cave?
