The Democrats majority in the Senate is on the line this election season, and if Republicans take back control, the GOP will need to decide on new rules for the new Congress in the upper chamber. Some Republican members are willing to go back to way things were before Harry Reid took the gavel.
In the wake of the recent controversial nomination of Judge David Barron, author of the memo which gave a legal basis to kill Americans abroad with drones, to the first U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Republicans became apoplectic after getting word that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid threatened to change the filibuster rules on federal nominees again to make the process favor the majority further. Don Stewart, spokesman for Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, told Breitbart News on Wednesday that McConnell has already made it clear that, should the Republicans take back the Senate, decisions on rules will be made among conference members.

ACT LIKE WINNERS.
Atomic melvins, noogies, swirlies in the locker room, screw their girlfriends, SCREW THEM.
Enough of this, “We’ll be GOOD winners, crap”, they UNDERSTAND bullying.
if elected, we expect YOU to fight tooth and bone and if that means using democrat tricks, then by God, use them....
When Republicans regain the majority in the Senate, I’m all for reverting to the pre-Hairy protocols BUT ONLY AFTER cleaning up some of the Shiite that the Dims have foisted on the country. AND WITH THE SIMPLE MAJORITY THE RULE, improve other protocols.
Set a target of January 1, 2018 as a good day to revert to the pre-Hairy protocols, but only a target.
Not surprising because most of them really are demorats.
Pubbies SHOULD NOT change a thing make them LIVE with what they
voted for PERIOD!!!!!!
They are making one hell of an assumption that they will get control of the senate..
With the crap they are currently pulling and their history of grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory..
I bet they can’t pull off even 50 seats total.
Jeez....Let’s see, Rand Paul, Juan McCain and Little Lindsey Graham. The three of them should jointly be known by the name “Pussy Galore”.
They’re ALWAYS ready to carry the DemocRATS’ water for them.
It’s like professional wrestling....sometimes the good guys pretend to be bad guys, and vice-versa. It’s all scripted, and only the lobbyists know who will be the actual winner at the conclusion of each match. And MSNBC and Fox News serve as “Mean Gene” the announcer...keeping you focused and all upset.
In 2010, we gave the Republicans:
* control of the US House of Representatives,
* dozens of new Representatives in the House with fire-in-the-belly,
* AND ALL THE HOUSE REPUBLICANS DID WAS TO BECOME CHRONIC DOORMATS TO DEMOCRATS!
I dunno about the R party even WITH the TP in control of it.
So it appears to me that America has a choice between two political parties:
The corrupt, insane D's or the stupid, pu$$y R's.
That's not a choice. That's national suicide.
What a bunch of losers. We win, we lose, we lose, we lose. Fight by the enemy’s rules, oh no. We need to be nice so the media will like us and we can get invited to all the best cocktail parties.
‘Atomic melvins’? Is that the infamous ‘birth control wedgie’ or am I off in the weeds here?
I will believe it when I see it, and when the first filibuster actually occurs, you know, a “real” one...
I’m sure it will get 100% Democrat support.
Which is why they’ll never again drink from that cup.
