It is interesting how when it's a liberal that dumps on it's own base, the headlines say nothing about Reid being the head liberal of the Senate. This headline if it had been McConnell would have read; the cowardly republican congress and its refusal to protect children.

I am waiting for them to blame McConnell - after all, the Dems do not take blame for any of their actions - it is either "Bush done it" or it is the Reps fault.

That's only because in the liberal party, you are either of the 1%, or you're the low information voter being herded to the voting booth.

Sad day for the progressive liberals when some in their own party decide to keep their oath and uphold the Constitution.

You guys whine alot!

No, dear friend, we would like to see the votes on this issue - from all sidesof the aisle, and why they voted.

Reid - yes dear friend - has been a disappointment.

You know what is sad about liberals.

There WHAT DOES IT MATTER, sounds so much like ALL THIS FOR A FLAG. The clueless don't care, because nothing matters except if its about them. They know the low information voters are sheeple and will do as directed. They know they won't engage in patriotism, they are too busy getting another latte.

Interesting comment because there is alot of spouting about MY second amendment/MY rights to own a gun/MY safety from the boogeman/tyrannical government/paranoia du jour who are coming after ME, ME, ME - you know that typical paranoia.

But what matters are those guns hurt/kill others - whether it is in a school, mall or a movie house. So it is about THEM, THEM, THEM.

That is what "matters", n'est-ce pas?

let me see, there are Democrats up for election in Montana , Iowa, New Mexico, South Dakota, Arkansas,Alaska, Louisiana , and North Carolina to name a few. Harry Reid trying to protect his job first?
Here a map showing Senate Seats up for 2014 election. Outside Maine, the Republican Seats are fairly safe, same cannot be said for the Democrat seat.

I am sure any gains the republicans expect will be nixed by anti woman comments candidates make. All the democrats will have to do is say "remember it is almost impossible for a woman to get pregnant from a legitimate rape". Until such time as the Republicans get out of bed with the religious right trying to control peoples personal lives they will never regain power in Washington.

It is not cowardly to stand up for the second amendment which they swore to uphold when they were sworn in.

This country's gun deaths are not funny, our gun culture is not funny, our country's gun*ugger paranoia is not funny and the histrionics of those who believe guns don't kill only people do is not funny and you guys who believe every man, woman and child (you folks probably believe babies should carry them in their diapers?) should have a gun down their knickers or bras is not funny.

Dear, the taxpayers have never funded a single thing in my life - though I use public buildings like libraries/public roads etc.

The Democrats you describe are hardly liberals. And it has nothing to do with keeping an oath, and everything to do with keeping their jobs.
