Senate Votes For Nuclear Option

WASHINGTON -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) pulled the trigger Thursday, deploying a parliamentary procedure dubbed the "nuclear option" to change Senate rules to pass most executive and judicial nominees by a simple majority vote.

The Senate voted 52 to 48 for the move, with just three Democrats declining to go along with the rarely used maneuver.

From now until the Senate passes a new rule, executive branch nominees and judges nominated for all courts except the Supreme Court will be able to pass off the floor and take their seats on the bench with the approval of a simple majority of senators. They will no longer have to jump the traditional hurdle of 60 votes, which has increasingly proven a barrier to confirmation during the Obama administration.

Reid opened debate in the morning by saying that it has become "so, so very obvious" that the Senate is broken and in need of rules reform. He rolled through a series of statistics intended to demonstrate that the level of obstruction under President Barack Obama outpaced any historical precedent.

Half the nominees filibustered in the history of the United States were blocked by Republicans during the Obama administration; of 23 district court nominees filibustered in U.S. history, 20 were Obama's nominees; and even judges that have broad bipartisan support have had to wait nearly 100 days longer, on average, than President George W. Bush's nominees.

"It's time to change before this institution becomes obsolete," Reid said, before citing scripture -- "One must not break his word" -- in accusing Minority Leader McConnell (R-Ky.) of breaking his promise to work in a more bipartisan fashion.

McConnell responded to Reid by changing the subject to the Affordable Care Act and accusing Democrats of trying to distract Americans from the law's troubled rollout. Getting around to fidelity, McConnell noted that Reid had said in July that "we're not touching judges," yet he was now choosing to do so. Reid casually brushed off his suit coat and sat down.

McConnell compared the alleged duplicity to another Democratic piece of rhetoric. "If you like the rules of the Senate, you can keep them," he quipped, as the GOP side laughed heartily, which encouraged a pleased McConnell to turn directly to his colleagues and repeat the joke.

He then turned to the Democratic side and said he understood why inexperienced young members who'd never been in the minority might want to change the rules. "The rest of you guys in the conference should know better," he said.

Obstruction, McConnell said, began with the Democrats when they decided to filibuster Circuit Court nominees under Bush. "They made it up. They started it," he said, arguing that Republicans were only following their lead. His argument, though, raises the question of why eliminating the filibuster on such judges, if it was never used before 2000, should be seen as an historic development in the first place.

"Stop trying to jam us," McConnell said, warning that it would come back to haunt them. "You may regret it a lot sooner than you think."

CONtinued:

Normally rules changes in the Senate need 67 votes, but the majority can challenge an existing rule, and if the presiding senator rules against the challenge, the majority can then ask for a vote on the chair's ruling. If a simple majority votes to overrule the chair, it sets a new precedent.

Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) broke with their party and joined Republicans in opposing the move. Pryor is in an uphill reelection contest, which may explain his vote, but Sens. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Mark Begich (D-Alaska), who are also top GOP targets in 2014, backed the rules change.

Levin, a Senate traditionalist, has long been the most outspoken opponent of rules reform, and led a successful effort to stymie the movement earlier this year. Manchin, meanwhile, has great reverence for the late Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), a fierce champion of Senate tradition, likely explaining his vote.(Byrd did make several attempts to change the rules himself when he served as majority leader.)

Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), who has long been skeptical of changing the rules, cast a critical vote very late in the process supporting the move.

That left Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), a recent convert to reform, to cast the 51st vote, with Reid casting the 52nd.

The move marks a significant win for the newer crop of Democrats -- like Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley, the lead proponent of going nuclear -- who have grown increasingly frustrated as McConnell expertly employed parliamentary procedures to stall Democratic nominees and initiatives. Sens. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) and Tom Udall (D-N.M.) have also been longtime champions of filibuster reform, with Harkin's effort dating back more than two decades.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who chaired the Judiciary Committee back when it was Democrats trying to stall Bush's nominees, echoed McConnell, suggesting newer Democrats such as Merkley, who have never been in the minority, were not taking the long view.

"They're -- I want to say this the right way -- they're rustling their inexperienced feathers," Hatch said, calling the historic move a "charade just to try and get off Obamacare."

"It's raw power that they're exercising, that, like I say, is a very dangerous thing for them to do," Hatch said. "They're going to rue the day they do it."

But Merkley disagreed, arguing the reform is "about clearing the decks of the Senate so we can actually spend time on legislation, we can actually address the cost of college, actually have job-creation bills on the floor, that we can address issues related to retirement security."

"I feel great," Merkley said. "Since I came here in 2009, I've been absolutely appalled by the dysfunction of this body."

Old turtleman is a real comedian and dreamer isn't he? hahaha Nip their little game in the bud. I love it and Merkley got it right, they are dysfunctionable and have done nothing but block progress. THEY are the ones who are going to pay come election. Watch for it. haha

Charlie Crist Leads Rick Scott In Florida Governor's Race: Poll

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has a 7-point lead over incumbent Gov. Rick Scott (R) in the 2014 Florida gubernatorial race, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday.

Forty-seven percent of registered Florida voters supported Crist, who was elected as a Republican before becoming an independent and then a Democrat, compared to 40 percent who backed Scott.

That's down slightly from two past Quinnipiac polls in March and June, when Crist led by 16 and 10 points, respectively.

Cocaine-Using Tea Party Rep. Demands Drug Testing For Food Stamps, Then Goes To Rehab

Tea Party Congressman Henry “Trey” Radel, R-Fla., pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine in a Washington, D.C. court on Wednesday. The case puts the spotlight on some interesting issues to be examined by a cynical public. Although his arrest on drug possession charges occurred on October 29th, not even Radel’s caucus leader, House Speaker John Boehner, knew about it until the day before he appeared in court.

According to Wikipedia, the freshman Congressman was elected by “one of the most Republican districts in Florida.” Although he’s been in office for just 10 months, Radel quickly became known in D.C.’s drug scene and was set up by his dealer to buy cocaine from an undercover officer. Court documents revealed that the October cocaine purchase was just one of several incidents.

Radel gets caught with cocaine and charged with a misdemeanor.

The first issue Radel’s case raises has to do with the disparity in sentencing for drug offenses. For getting busted with cocaine, he was given what appears to be the extraordinarily light sentence of one year on probation and a $250 fine. Although Washington, D.C. law classifies possession of any drug for personal use, other than PCP, as a misdemeanor, Radel could have been sentenced to 180 days in jail and a fine of $1,000. If the arrest had happened in his own home state of Florida, he would have been charged with a third degree felony. The sentence could have been up to 5 years imprisonment and a fine of $5,000.

In an interesting move for a Congressman with a conservative voting record, Radel has supported legislation to get rid of mandatory drug sentencing and to allow leniency for non-violent offenders. A self-serving position, perhaps? But it may also be part of his argument for softening the image of the GOP to broaden the party’s base. Whether he can sell his Florida constituents on any of the above remains to be seen.

At a news conference Wednesday night, Radel pledged to take a leave of absence from Congress until after the December break. During that time, he will enter treatment for addiction in Florida and will donate his salary to charity. He said,“I believe in forgiveness and redemption … I hope southwest Florida can forgive me for this. I’ve let them down.”

Average Americans suffer from hypocrisy on drug issue.

As long as he’s looking at who he has let down, in view of his current cocaine troubles, Radel might also want to re-evaluate his support for the farm bill currently being negotiated between the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. The version the Florida Congressman voted for allows states to require — get this — drug testing for all food stamp recipients. Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) argued against the drug testing amendment as degrading. Ironically, he asked the chamber,“Why don’t we drug test all the members of Congress here. Force everybody to go urinate in a cup or see whether or not anybody is on drugs?”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sees the timing of Radel’s cocaine conviction as rather fortuitous. She expressed hope that his drug problem might “humanize” the food stamp issue for the GOP. Dream on. The sponsor of the amendment, Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), quickly issued a statement through a spokesman that he ‘remains committed’ to the proposition of drug-testing food stamp recipients and that Rep. Radel’s situation has ‘nothing to do with’ the merits of the policy.

It’s bad enough for Republican Congressmen to insist that needy people must ‘pee in a cup’ in order to prove themselves worthy of eating. But the law is being finalized the same week that one of their own clearly couldn’t pass such a test himself. The continued insistence on demeaning an already distressed population is the height of hypocrisy.

Anti-Obama ‘Revolution’ Fizzles As Only About 100 People Attend

Radical Obama-hater Larry Klayman called for a revolution to remove the president. That revolution started today, and drew about 100 people.

What if you gave a revolution and (almost) nobody showed up? That’s the question that deranged Obama opponent Larry Klayman has to answer now.
In October, Klayman called upon “millions of Americans” to march on Washington, D.C. The goal? To remove “usurper” President Obama from office.

Today, November 19, 2013, is the date Larry Klayman picked for his “revolution.” Did the millions he forecast to descend upon the city arrive in planes, trains, and automobiles? Are the Obama’s hastily packing and preparing to sneak out of the White House under cover of darkness?

Hardly. Larry Klayman’s revolution was not quite what he predicted it would be. Right Wing Watch estimates that “no more than a hundred people” attended today’s event.

The Tea Party Exists Mainly Because Many Rural Whites Just Don’t Like a Black Guy Being in Charge

The Tea Party Exists Mainly Because Many Rural Whites Just Don't Like a Black Guy Being in Charge

I’ll be honest, I really don’t like to talk about racism as it pertains to President Obama. Not because it isn’t there — I actually believe it’s rampant throughout the Republican party — but because it’s just an argument that rarely gets us anywhere.

You can’t “prove” racism. Sure, you can use a few examples, but most will be dismissed as the exception and not the rule.
Hell, I can throw up a map showing the states of the Confederacy, the states which supported segregation and the “strongly Republican” states today (nearly all of which are identical) and these people will continue to deny racism has anything to do with their hatred of President Obama.

And I always love how on an anniversary like Martin Luther King’s birthday, his “I Have a Dream Speech” or the Gettysburg Address, Republicans suddenly pretend to be some representative of equality and civil rights.

Because, you know, it was southern Democrats that were the real racists. But what’s actually more believable:

Entire regions, and generations, of Americans magically switched their system of beliefs on equality and race relations, or…
The two major political parties simply swapped ideological beliefs over a few decades.

For that answer, you can just refer to the “Southern Strategy” as evidence of exactly what happened.

Watch, 50 years from now Republicans will be deny that they ever stood in the way of homosexuals gaining equality.

But now Republicans have the tea party. Quite possibly the most hateful, vile, ignorant collection of people to garner mainstream attention in decades. And of course, they deny racism has anything to do with their opposition to President Obama.

But let’s be honest, shall we? It’s a reality almost every liberal is already well aware of. The main reason the tea party exists, and has grown to be as popular with hardcore conservatives as it has (especially rural, white conservatives), is that many of these rural whites really don’t want a black man telling them what to do.
That’s it.

Sure, he’s a Democrat, so many Republicans wouldn’t have supported him anyway. But their hatred of President Obama goes well beyond what political party he represents.

And trust me on this. I live in Texas and as I’ve said several times, I hear President Obama referred to as some derogatory term for African Americans far more than I do by his name or as “the president.” You can almost hear it in the voice of many of these white conservatives. They detest the idea of having someone who’s black telling them what to do.“He wants to tell me I have to buy health insurance? Who does he think he is? He’s not my president.”

Their tea party rallies are almost mirror images of protests decades ago against interracial marriage or the ending of segregation. Groups comprised almost entirely of white people, claiming they’re preserving the “American way of life.” But of course they are—for white people.

Hell, I’ve been to a couple tea party rallies. The openness at which racism was embraced stunned even me. I figured there would be some, but the fact that most people didn’t even try to hide it was what caught me off guard.

So what it really comes down to for me is pretty simple. It’s a bunch of conservative, rural whites resenting the fact that a black man is in charge.

And at the end of the day, that’s where most of the communist; socialist; Muslim; anti-Christian; not a real American; show us your birth certificate propaganda comes from. Just a bunch of angry, rural white people resenting the black man in the White House.
