4. Way to play it, Mitch!

This will be Exhibit# 1 as to why Reid has to change the organizing rules of the next Senate.

Thanks for playing, Mr. Minority Leader!

5. It must be a real pain to be on such a short leash......

First you're masters pull you this way. Then you're masters pull you the other way. You end up filibustering you're own bill and looking like a total fool.
But you're masters don't want to end the uncertainty. You're masters don't want a recovery. It would hurt their bottom line.
Such is the life of a Teapublican. I wonder how they sleep at knight.
Oh wait don't Bohner drink a bit?
I wonder what turtles do?

They are all likely to end up like McCane, with a one head at each end of their body.
I guess we all know what makes 'em so mean.

8. Truly INcredible!

Obstruction and obfuscation for the single purpose of detouring the will of the people. McCONnell is SO non-effectual. I wonder just how much tea he really consumes in the course of a day!

He is a pathetic old racist white man. Kentucky born and bred. Pretty much sums it up.

13. Change the rules

so cowardly hypocrites like Mitch at least have to stand up on the Senate floor and talk if they want to filibuster. The GOP are nothing but a bunch of monkey wrenchers.

16. The Dems don't have the votes to stop a filibuster, and the Repubs

oppose the bill -- so McCon thought he could embarrass the Dems by calling up the bill, forcing the Dems to either waste time only to end in defeat or forcing Reid to pull some rules maneuver to avoid wasting time on a floor fight

But Reid, rather than being forced to stop a bill he wanted, turned the game around and forced McCon to filibuster a bill he had just called up

17. Proof they don't care about the country. They can't get past their hate of Democrats.

Why people vote for these fuckers is beyond me.
