President Obama’s success rate with nominees is actually higher than that of his Republican predecessor.

Here's hoping Boehner will get this message out. Not holding breath, just hoping.

Very simple, if Reid pulls this then the GOP needs to filibuster everything else that gets put up.

Unfortunately certain traitors like MCcain and Grahamnesty will side with Dems., Rubio on immigration too.

Harry wants to get the camel’s nose under the tent. Once he gets filibuster overturned on this minor issue, he can try to expand it to larger issues, like cloture.

Someday, there will be a GOP majority in Congress (even if we never have a GOP president after immigration/amnesty changes). The Dems won’t like the situation then, but in their unprincipled way, will forget how they created it.

If Reid does this,the Senate GOP should filibuster everything else for the next two years .... or until the rule is changed.

I’m thinking Dingy-harry will be not go through with this. Those dems behind the scenes know this is a double edged sword, that once released will cut both ways.

Oh, Dingy-harry will bluff right up to the door, but won’t turn the handle. This is more about intimidation than immediate results. Nobama and Dems have a long record of hollow threatening and harsh over-reaching “trial balloons”. This could be more about their reactionary base than our reaction.

Reid's pretty confident he'll stay majority leader. Probably because with the current level of fraud and their attention to detail in districts, GOP will never win another election.

Not to mention the plethora of imbeciles on the Republican side who are so lame they couldn't win an honest election (sigh)
