Translation! We get screwed!
So it would leave the 60 vote threshold for Supreme Court appointments stand?
Just how did I know McCain would be the traitor selling us down the river again. Wake up Arizona.
Let me guess. The Republicans have decided to win the war by “honorable” surrender. Wave them through with no protest.
Major breakthrough is one way of looking at it,I call it capitulation to evil.McCain again,as expected.
Aren’t these the appointments the SCOTUS ruled illegal. Why is Reid trying to confirm people the court said aren’t eligible?
What is the difference between rolling over and giving them what they want and letting them go “nuclear”? At least if they go nuclear you can say you went down fighting.
They’ve avoided pulling their heads out of the sand, much less going nuclear, for 6 years now.
We have been sold down the river one more time.
Strength through weakness. Winning by losing.
McCain is a fool. He always makes a “deal” to give the Democrats what they want and then is surprised when they break the deal. McCain always plays Charlie Brown while Lucy Reid snatches the ball away at the last minute. The old fool falls for it every time.
The GOP May Have Just May Have Bent Over Far Enough To Avoid Going 'Nuclear'
Thanks. I feel better now.
Face it. If the RATS don’t get their way, they will go ‘nuclear.’ And the Republicans will stand by with their proverbial thumbs up their you-know-whats looking like so many Alfred E. Neumans. The Republican Party has no guts, no onions, no saavy, and simply doesn’t know how to fight. I have given up on them.
Anyone here believe the Dem’s WON’T go nuclear the next time it suits their agenda?
McLame. One of the many reasons the GOP FAIL!
Short version = GOP collapsed and caved.
“Everything you want now plus two more later”
More from BI:
“...would allow five of Obama’s nominations to go forward nominees that include Richard Cordray to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Gina McCarthy as EPA administrator, and Thomas Perez as Labor Secretary.
Obama, who has not agreed to the deal, would then swap out two nominees to the National Labor Relations Board Sharon Block and Richard Griffin. His two replacements would get votes quickly before a deadline in August that would render the board inoperable.”
There’s a scene in a movie or tV show where a buyer offers more than someone wants and says later he was ‘haggling’...
McCain again. Traitor again!
What a surprise...not!
Time to change parties, McLame.
McCain again selling out.
