That’s what happens when you (in the collective) get tired of faking it! (Oh, and also when you are so sure that you’re replacement for the outgoing is a shoe-in . . . )
I can’t believe I actually agree with Tom Daschle on something.
Daschle must be on his death bed or something, telling the truth for the first time in a half century.
The lowering of the threshold can be laid directly at the feet of Nelson Rockefeller. He set out to wreck the filibuster, and largely, he did.
Rockefeller was, well, a Rockefeller Republican. That was back when the term meant something.
That is my thought - he’s having a ‘come to Jesus’ revelation.
Can you imagine needing 67 votes now??
Well, a short stopped clock is right twice a day.
I think it’s less of you agreeing with Tom daschle and more of Tom agreeing with you
The Dems are certainly responsible, but not in the sense of that Daschle is saying it. The Dems in the Senate simply decided that they would support NOTHING that helps the Republicans, or even permits Trump to run the country...so that is the problem - not tactics, but HYPER-partisanism on the part of the Democrats.
And Daschle was extremely partisan when he was the majority leader. Even Bill O’Reilly who doesn’t ordinarily say he prefers a candidate said it was a good thing when Thune defeated Daschle.
What was it that Rush Limbaugh used to call Tom, “Pit Yorkie”?
Is this some semblance of hon...honesty?
He failed to mention his own dirty hands (Estrada).
The original Earth Whore speaks. Guess he doesn’t like the poisoned fruit from the trees he planted? Too f***ing bad.
Learn to love em, pal.....like Aunt Bee’s pickles : )
That show is still in the top 60-70 most viewed shows in the USA today, decades after it was cancelled.
I was stunned to read it, but it’s true.
Guess there’s still a clamoring for “The Real America”.
No, that was the House Democrat Whip David Bonior.
