RINO McConnell is just as worthless as RINO Boehner.

Well, golly gee, Mitch, maybe if you’d stop reading from your one sentence per page speeches in that pansy tone of yours and instead, stand up and shout and fight, maybe you wouldn’t get rolled over so often.

But of course, we all know you like being rolled, because you have a nice cozy position. Why rock the boat.

Sen Sessions has already said the GOP will shut the Senate down completely if Reid does this.

Well then, Mitch, figure out how to make the price too high for Reid. Consider everything, both inside and outside the Senate.

I believe the purpose for this is to make it harder for Rs to keep and win Senate seats in 2014, by forcing them to vote or make a show. And it might work.

Thus telegraphing his eventual capitulation.

“Irreparable Damage”...does that mean the RinoCrats will have to give up the 2-Party Pretense and just all caucus together?

Or What Mitch?

WOW, who woke Mitch up from his nap?
He's been sleeping for years.

I have heard that since the Senate is in continuous session because members' terms overlap, that any such rules change would take a 2/3 majority. That would require quite a few RINOs to reach across the aisle to change the filibuster rule. The House does it differently because every member is officially starting a new term at the same time so they set up new rules with a 50% vote at the start of the term.

Reid either thinks that there will never be a future time when republicans have a majority in the senate,
or he thinks that the MSM will have selective amnesia when they try to change the rules back after a republican majority.

I’m betting on the former. They know that this is it. It’s over, and very soon.

Let them do it. The senate has the right to make its own rules. Let’s see if Boehner sticks to his DOA threat.

McConnell just doesn’t understand that there is only one way to work with Democrats . . . surrender.
