OK ... NOW I believe it.

I said I would not actually believe Reid "would" do it, until he actually fucking DID it.

Harry made a believer out of me today. Woot!

1. Good. apparently he WAS keeping his powder dry. Because he's going apeshit in 2013

 

Declaring war on Republicans and it is grand to see.

3. I think he realizes 2014 will be the deathknell of one party or the other -

And wants to ensure its not going to be the Dems.
Business as usual won't keep seats in this climate.

4. I believe he wants to get as many crucial appellate appointments done

 

As possible because you never know what the future holds. The house will prove a major problem for Dems which is why there was no need to worry about taking away legislative filibuster. The house would reject any sensible legislation.

If, for some horrible reason, the Dems lose both houses in 2014, Obama is going to be a veto machine.

20. I agree. This is called "safeguarding the future."

We absolutely must have good judges on our courts. The future will be dim and miserable if we don't. Too much is at stake. Hopefully, one of the repuke justices on the Supreme Court will need to be replaced during Obama's term and we'll get back our judicial sanity...

2. I'm going to pretend my chicken cooking in the roaster is a Crow.

And enjoy eating it. Took him long enough though.

6. Me too

I've pretty much had "I'll believe it when I see it" set up as a macro so I didn't have to type the words everytime.

It's nice to see this.

9. Reid said it, the POTUS said it. They are DONE being treated like crap by the GOP!

The shutdown by idiot clown car leader Cruz was the final straw imo.

19. It's just not cool to muck with the full faith and credit of the United States.

You may be onto something.

11. People say Harry Reid is one tough son of a bitch behind the scenes.

I'm starting to believe it. I'll take some of that dark meat please...

13. I don't doubt that Reid CAN be tough

I've never bought his mousy frail veneer for a moment, but in past I've
felt he often talked a tough talk, but then didn't follow through; especially
during the Bush nightmare.

14. Understood.

But he also leads some shrinking violet Senators. He still needs 51 votes - and some of our Dems are DINOs for sure. So thank goodness for whatever had to take place to get to today - at least now the President has a chance to be President and enact his agenda.

15. We indeed have good cause to celebrate this, as hopefully a turning point

in the left direction for a change.

16. I'll take dark and white please but I don't feel I need too large a portion

due to the staggering amount of Dixie whistled over the years.
