Harry Reid took advantage of the betrayal of GOP RINOs led by McCain, Lamar Alexander, Corker and Graham in the party as they became loyal to the Obama agenda and using the Obama’s media to attack the Tea Party. In fact, the spineless cowards GOP RINOs led by John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Suzan Collins, Corker and Alexander were going blind since 2009 to approve Obama's agenda and Obama liberal communists and Maoists nominees to become Judges and assuming top positions in the government. Therefore, there will be no real change in the approval of Obama radical nominations after the change in the Senate. John McCain and Lindsey graham that went blind after the Obama agenda during the recent five years found that they become worthless GOP RINOs that Obama does not need any more for quick passing of nomination of the most radical America- hating liberal communists to the courts. What will John McCain and Lindsey Graham do now as unemployed by Obama other than continue to besmirch the conservative Senators of the GOP led by Ted Cruz? Nevertheless, if the American people wake up to save America from falling under the Stalinist dictatorship 4regime that Obama is pushing forward and will vote out the liberal Democrats from the Senate in 2014 elections, Obama will have major problem to get nomination approval for his America hating radicals by more than 51 GOP Senators assuming the usual traitorous RINOs will not stab the American people in the back as they did time.

Say none thing and do another.

Like Reagan promising to balance the federal
budget in his first three years and then tripling the deficit instead.

You just can't believe what they say.

After becoming Senate majority leader in 2008, Harry Reid swore that as long as he was leader, he would never turn to the nuclear option, saying it would be a “black chapter in the history of the Senate.” In his book published that year, he said a rules change weakening the filibuster “would be the end of the United States Senate."

The Republicans couldn't have written a better Mid Term scenario if they tried. They are acting all upset like Brer rabbit after he was thrown in the briar bushes. How could the Democrats have been so stupid? Do they really think they will reign forever? Yes, they will get what they want in the short term, but they played right into the Republican's hands, and now when the Republicans have the House, Senate, and Presidency they will get nothing. We don't want the dictator, and we will see to it he only smashes, and grabs for the next 13 months. He cannot stop the elections.

4 out of 5 Americans would say the Nation has awaken, and that is evidenced by the 7% favorability rating of the Republicans their politics and vision for America.

The Republicans are hated and despised in America today, the fighting in Congress is a result of the cannibalizing of Republicans by Republicans.

Members of your own party hate each other..... That's an internal issue for the Republicans to cure before they lose all relevance.

That's pretty much taken from a post in Oct 2010, and look how the Republican Majority in the House turned out for the nation...... Now the Republicans are the most despised and hated in Washington...

You're inline to be singing this same toon or the next 30 years, the day of a Republican in the White House is 30 plus years away......

No matter who the Republican candidate is in 2016, It can pretty much be guaranteed another landslid victory by a margin of no less than 112 Electoral Votes......

Never underestimate the stupidity/greed/arrogance of the lie-berals. The videos fron 2005 are being played on every news station,showing their hypocrisy exhibitted yesterday. I'm laughing my azz off and counting down the days until election day. I want to hear Reid piss and moan when HIS party is the minority one and HE wants to filibuster a vote/nomination.

They want us to forget the Gulf of Tonkin. 58000 American soldiers dead. Hundreds of thousands more coming back home less then whole and many more living reduced lives even today. Millions of Asians were killed during that time frame. The debts are still being paid off. That LBJ. A nasty evil man who helped to set the course of our destruction as a republic to democracy to tyranny. Well done Lyndon. Well done indeed...

Why, because the Democrats in the Senate stood up for Democracy? Voting is fundamental to democracy, right?

Reagan spent $2.7 Trillion on Defense in 8 years, Ask Tip O'Neill what exactly?

The National Debt went from $880 Billion to $2.9 Trillion after all those social program cuts.

What exactly should anyone ask Tip O'Neill concerning that mushrooming of the National Debt under Reagan?

Pipe dreams boy,pipe dreams. Harry Reid,in his grab for power has sealed the fate for the demonrats. Even CNN are saying adios to a substantial number of lie-beral Senators and Representatives. Reid has insured the demise of the demonratic party in the Senate. Lie-beral pundits and talking head on TV cannot save either Obama OR the demonrats in the Senate.

Stop the Alinky crap. 99% of the whole media in everything heap scorn on anything Republican. The false RINOS are put up with until they get in the way. What there is...is a few people who believe in freedom. And to varying degrees is decreases. And when it comes to freedom, progressives threw that out many years ago. If the Repub party goes down, then it is better that way then to keep electing sniveling wimps or liars. Because many people who vote for tea party(if they are not co opted by the elitists) candidates are the only ones who at least think about our lost freedoms. Worry about yourself. Because tens of millions of people could apply for government benefits who don't collect even now. We can bring this government down just by doing that.

What other options did Reid have in restoring democracy to America. The GOP was using the Filibuster to nullify the 2008 and 2012 Presidential Elections which were landslide victories. There was no honest debate but the filibuster was used only as a measure of obstructing and avoiding decision making, preventing issues from coming before the senate for legitimate up or down votes.

Representatives voting is fundamental to a democratic republic.

WE are not a democracy. We are a Republic. NOWHERE in the Constitution is the word democracy mentioned. Democracy= mob rule. A fine explanation of the situation we saw in the Senate. Calling oneself a "democrat" does NOT indicate a preference for democracy.

Maybe from within the bubble you reside you're not receiving the national polling updates, the Republicans have a 7% approval rating in America, close family and associates back their politics and vision.

By a wide margin typical Americans hate the Republicans and everything they stand for in congress and their chosen strategy to obstruct and delay on issues to move the economy forward.

As much as you hate Obama, typical Americans hate your politics. Obama at his worse favorability ratings is more than 7 times more favorable than the Republicans and their position on most things American.
