That Hard Slogging Harry Reid!

You know, this is one of those things that makes me say “WTF!”

Senate bracing for a ‘hard slog’ on stimulus bill –

On Thursday night, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, said it is going to be a “long, hard slog” with “late nights” after the $900 billion bill comes to the Senate floor Monday night. “It is up to us how long this takes,” Reid added. “We hope we can work things out.”

The full Senate will vote on its version of the bill Wednesday. Should the Senate and House pass different versions, the two bills would have to be conferenced together. Then both chambers would have to vote on the conference version.

Is it time to just box Harry Reid’s ears, or perhaps replace him with someone with gonads?

Yeah, there should be a lot of work to get it right, and make sure they’re not wasting too much taxpayer money. But “a long, hard slog”? “We hope we can work things out”????

Maybe he’s not aware that Republicans only have 41 seats right now, and that it’s unlikely that they’ll even attempt to filibuster. If they TRY to filibuster, it’ll do more to damage the GOp than anything they have done previously, and that takes some doing.

Here’s a clue, Harry. You have the majority. You have a president that is more popular than the last president ever thought of being (except when the country was in a 9/11 stupor), and the people want something done NOW, and screw the deficit. The only thing to “work out” is to make sure that as much stimulus as possible is passed, so that we can get the economy moving again.

We gave you the backbone, Harry. We don’t REALLY need 60 votes; 59 will work just fine. Now get out there and do your job.

34 to go: The solution to nearly every problem we have: fewer Republicans

Let me put this simply. Even if you don’t plan to vote for a Republican on November 4, you’re not off the hook. Unless you are prepared to do whatever is necessary over the next 34 days to make sure Democrats win every election possible, you are a fool. Likewise, if you believe that …

Mr. Obama went to Washington, and he and the Democrats want you to help them!

Many progressives love to look at old movies from before the TV era and cite them as examples of how America should be. One of their favorites is “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” It’s commonly cited as their ideal political movie, and they like to use it as an example of what …
