Definitely have to give the “D’s” credit.
They not only know how to play the game, they play it with vengeance and take no prisoners.
As noted in the article Reid had already been against this.
If, by some divine intervention and a miracle to top changing water into wine, the R’s WIN in 2014 and take over the Senate, one of the LAST things D’s will do is REVERSE this particular rule - AFTER passing every piece of trash bill that is pending.
THAT, sorrowfully, is the way the R’s are going to have to start playing the game.
This passiveness just makes them look weak and US foolish for allowing them to ‘represent’ us....
That's because the media, academics, and the entertainment industry have their backs. If Republican’s acted the way they do they'd label them Nazi's and say they are trying to kill grandma or babies. Look at the way they labeled Romney as anti-woman.
What's required is a viciously vigorous response and putdown of each and every criticism and false accusation these jerks make. Liberals were able, through their popularization of the term ‘McCarthyism’, to put all concerns about communist/socialist influence in a fluff/dismissive category. We need to label all of their ‘Republicans are coming after women and grandma's social security’ crap the same way, so that people automatically dismiss it out of hand. This can be done.
