Not as bad as the other article.
Quite frankly, as long as Barack Obama is President, the filibuster rules are meaningless to a Republican majority.
“But in a speech in January he indicated that he would aim to focus on areas of consensus”
Also known as across the aisle bending over.....
Did he also say he would POWER SHARE with Harry /
The liberal republican party must be destroyed.
Like any doormat, Mitch McConnell’s olive branch will be gladly accepted, and then it will be used to whip his fat turtle face until he cries and offers to do Harry Reid’s homework for him all semester long.
If the ,Rats are going to regain the Senate in ,16, why does he need to be re,elected in ,14?
Does anyone really think that Harry Reid is not going to change the filibuster rules back to the super majority rule in the lame duck session, if and when he loose the speaker-ship?
Mitch is assuming an awful lot here: 1) He will be re-elected; and, 2) the Republicans will take the Senate.
Right now, I don’t see either happening.
Is he counting his chickens before they hatch?
And the 'pubs will love it. They'll have cover for not passing constitutional conservative issues.
Remember when Boehner pledged that all bills would come to the floor for a vote? He lied.
Mitch is lying. If he becomes Majority leader he will not give the Dems an even break. Count on it.
Yes and I think Mitch is saying whatever he can think of to get a few Democratic votes in the general election.
Hairy and Mitch, two fools.
It really does not matter what Mitch says.
He will be applying for a job at Trent Lott’s Lobbying Firm after the
He has pissed off every conservative in KY.
The Bushites in KY will show up in full force at the polls.
However, don’t expect KY conservatives to crawl over glass to send
McConnell back to congress. Even the help of McConnell’s
Mini-Me, Rand Paul, won’t be enough to get enough conservatives
to the polls.
As McConnell remains behind in the coming polls, look for the GOPe’s
in DC to force McConnell to announce he will not seek re-election to
his leaderless post as a final desperate attempt to save that GOP seat.
Will it work? That depends on what KY conservatives decide to do.
I know I won't be voting for Cornyn in the general election. His key cloture vote that allowed Reid to remove the debt limit proved that he won't govern conservatively.
In addition, I’m sure he’d like to “reach out” to the democrats in order to give them an equal representation on committees and as chairmen, just like his mentor Trent Lott did. If the Senate goes to the GOP, watch for the demands from Reid’s mob, just like Daschle orchestrated, and look for Mitch to cave.
Mitch doesn’t have to cave. He agrees with the Democrats.
