Good Cop/Bad Cop. That's wtf is goin' on.

If you look at what's been happening at the federal level of our government at least as far back as W's two terms, you've been wtf'ing yourself silly for over twelve years. You keep asking yourself, "Why do Democrats keep allowing this nonsense to happen?" Seriously, stop a second and take note of how many times you've been bewildered and befuddled, enraged and outraged, not at what the Republicans have done, but at what the Democrats have allowed to happen, in the last three Presidential terms.

Always it's the same excuse, "Those big mean Republicans won't let us x, y, or z." "Those big mean Republicans forced us to a, b, or c."

Over and over and over.

Then, when Harry Reid has the chance to fix the filibuster so it finally works as intended; one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington can obliterate the Republican's #1 tool of obstruction, he doesn't. He says he trusts the Republicans to behave more responsibly.

The reason you feel that rising tension in your chest right now is that you know this is bullshit. You know there's something very wrong with how the Democratic leadership is doing business.

Here's a clue, you are confused because you believe in a false paradigm. You believe in the left/right, Liberal/Conservative, Democrat/Republican view of politics.

And you, and everyone else on this site who thinks likewise, are dead freakin' wrong.

And that's why this Sequester bullshit makes absolutely no sense to you.

Reid is hesitant to change the filibuster rules because he's cognizant of the fact that Democrats won't control the Senate in perpetuity. Use of the filibuster was supposed to be the exception and not the rule. Filibustering legislation is one thing, but, filibustering judicial appointments is quite another. If Republicans don't allow judicial nominations to proceed, Reid might have no choice but to change the rules. If he doesn't, then we're looking at a long term problem. Specifically, if the Republicans are allowed to continue this record use of the filibuster, then the Democrats will feel justified to use the filibuster to deny the next Republican President his entire legislative agenda and judicial nominations. I don't believe that this behavior is a good thing for this country.

I think the solution is to just elect me as President, for one month.

I’ll change everything I don’t like, by fiat, then leave town carried by the little people. Same thing as Obama, I’ll just do it in a month.

Oh there's someone who needs to be tarred and feathered and carried out of town on a rail alright, and that would be Obahama.

Believe it, or not....there are Dems....typically, from the Yuppie-herd....who, as usual, (also) wanted to look like "real Americans".

Quote:

"We really told them phony-baloney Democrats today. What a great day for patriots, for Real America, for Real Americans. We voted for real change, not for that phony hopey-changey.

We finally took our country back. We really cleaned their clocks. We threw the bums out."
