Skip to comments.Live Thread: Senate Amnesty Debate (CRITICAL 2ND CLOTURE VOTE TODAY!) Woo hoo!! It's DEAD!!
Posted on 06/28/2007 6:25:57 AM PDT by truthkeeper
Here we are again my friends, hopefully for the last debate thread on this particular monstrous legislation. Proceedings are supposed to begin at 9:30 a.m. EST, with the cloture vote being taken at 10:30 a.m.
On a personal note, you've all been wonderful in your passion, vigilance, and commitment to the principles on which our country was founded. If I have to be in a foxhole, I want to be in it with you guys.
He’s flipping to yes?
Does Gordon Smith realize he is up for re-election in ‘08?
WTH...his grandmother??? Is he an anchor baby??? Deport him!
Now we know Bush supported him so hard — they wanted his support on immigration. 2004 is when Rove started getting involved in elections for people that supported immigration and against those that didn’t. He used the money in DC to hold over their heads.
THE RACISTS/ILLEGALS/SOCIALISTS/COMMUNISTS AND THE POLITICIANS WHO SUPPORT THEM are in plain sight you idiot! http://www.mayday2007.org/
Ole Harry is about as "simplistic" as they come.
“””””””””””””Reid fears for his life:)””””””””””””
Do we have to listen to his bull crap.
Shut up Harry.
He has three sons who are lobbyists. His other son is on the LAs Vegas city council.
Shut up Harry.
At least one more cloture vote after this one.
Reid is mentally defective. This is disgraceful!
So, what’s King Harry’s explanation for why so many Democrats and Liberals (people, not politicians) are against this bill?
Anal Sphicter is the biggest pay to play artist in the northeast after Teddy.
No need to feel for him. He’s been on the dole and living high his entire adult life.
>we both agree with Sheets on this issue...<
Well, you know what they say about stopped clocks.
Heck, I’ll agree with Big Daddy Byrd if that’s what it takes.
What in the world is Reid talking about??? “I knew my grandmother...”
What?? HuH?? LMAO!
What does the House vote look like?
Exactly! Since this one can't hear the people, we need to get a Congress who will.
IF Harry doesn't quit his whining, I'm going to hurl. LOL
The Left and their media have changed our language again. No one is uttering the word “cloture.”
All of a sudden the phrase has become “motion to proceed.”
I ask why every political news outlet all of a sudden has stopped saying “cloture”?
Because yet again they are carrying the water for the Left, and hoping to fool the semi-attentive American people into thinking this is not what people are expecting today.
Reid is on now “wrapping up.” What a pathetic stumble-bum he is, Searchlight, Nevada’s favorite son, raised in a cat house, and he never let’s us forget it.
Reid .. you slimmy lizard MOVE to Mexico! He is just a disgrace.
Spectre on and I just have to leave the TV. He says that he knows that the majority of Americans are the silent majority and they are not the ones against the bill and that those speaking up are the minority. What an idiot.
Disgraceful....absolutely disgusting! This is so wrong.....
That’s the best strategy I’ve heard yet!
Sounds like he’s been taking speech lessons from KKK Byrd.
C'mon...they promised us a 10:50 vote!
Oh that's right....they never keep their promises!
JUST RUN THE VOTE!!!!
Harry, walk away from the microphone!
Reid up spouting sob stories. Blames talk radio for “hateful” talk. More sobbing about his own family, his father-in-law who died in 1952; now trying to great sobs; pure bloviating in front of the cameras. His allies in the AFL-CIO are not going to be pleased with Reid if this cloture vote passes.
He's pointing out blacks and hispanics.....THESE ARE LEGAL PEOPLE IN THAT ROOM, DUMMY
Oh good Lord, Harry!! Jeez!! I don’t give a rats a$$ about your immgrant relatives. Did they come here legally? Hrmmmmm?
"My skin is white..."
That's enough...I'm going to be sick...
DEMS PLAY THE OBAMA CARD IN THE FINAL MINUTES. That’s why he’s chair today obviously.
Well said....Complete TUNE UP needed asap...Now he’s talking about skin color...Due any of these crooks have mirrors in their homes...
The other meme is RACISM.
>>This is confusing. Sen Stevens said voting for cloture would allow the amendments to be considered, which would continue the debate.
Debate won’t continue- Reid will remove the bill from consideration, effectively killing it. There are other bills the Senate needs to consider.<<
If they voted for cloture, debate would continue for a little while, and then the POS would pass.
Has anyone brought up the cost, who does the health screenings and where are the monies alloted, what will happen with the rest who come in after, the UN treaty sections on pages 388-89 that ties our hands in our country, the end of sanctuary cities, the allowance of child molesters, gang members to apply, who’s taking care of the families of seasonal workers (btw, this kills H2Bs) the rest of the year, the end of bilingual ed and monies allowed and repayment from countries for what’s been paid out for their citizens in this bill... along with cutting off aid to said countries? I thought not.
How about job security (not according to the rigged unemployment index), for Americans... as in 100% employment for citizens first (kill welfare except in serious medical issues), then only bring in specific people for occupations.
Oh, and that there’s no mention of helping legal immigrants?
Except for doubling and tripling their costs... I wonder why?
Who will hold Mexico accountable instead of enabling them, sending them aid and millions on water projects there while we pay for the birthing, schooling, medical, social services, law enforcement, prisons, tuition here.
As for as the stories... Ellis was an island for a reason.
People were quarantined and others sent back when necessary... and they came legal. No comparison.
...why not? he stole from american indians...
How recent is this news? Cochran just spoke a 1/2 hour ago on the Senate and said he’ll vote NO. Please confirm this news.
If he has changed his mind again, we’ll call him and let him know.
Why is he going OVERTIME?
Reid has white skin-—yes, truly the world’s greatest deliberative body.
That’s right. I hope I can hold up if that is the case. Gonna go take a chill pill now.
Never in my entire life have I witnessed something so pathetic.
He complains that he got "hate" mail and "threats" which he turned into the police.
take special note of the buzz word "hate"
I got vomited a little bit - Im am so disgusted, suddenly the thought of Civil War 2 does not seem so impossible.
SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP!
That's the spin -
Cloture means debate ends and a vote (not requiring a 60 vote majority) takes place. The 'bipartisans' are NOW claiming that passage on a simple majority vote would encourage debate, presumably when the Senate and House bills met in conference.
There is? I didn't know that. At what point in the process will it occur?
The more Reid blathers on the more he hurts his cause. I hope he talks to next week.
Forgot the tissue. Find a straight jacket!
Like Bus’s characterizastion of those who disagree with him? He can call us racists and every other name in the book, but we must not become emotionally invested in this?
Not too sure about that. When Clinton was president, the republicans actually acted like conservatives. There is no way that No Child Left Behind, CFR, Medicare Plan-D or any of the other insane programs would have been passed if Kerry or Gore were president.
Dumb ass Reid thinks he’s Knute Rockne giving an emotional touchy-feely pep talk to the team. “Win one for Jorge boys”.
All the big DUmbos are pulling the race card now!!
It won’t work, it’s dead, Jim.
Explain please..I don’t think so..if cloture fails..the bill is dead..no more votes
