Harry only had 47 votes for a talking filibuster

Bernie said that on Ed Show.

Who are the Democrats that would not vote for this. We need names.

4. He could have

At least tried, even if he failed he would get credit for and attempt at least. The way it stands now he caved in without any real visible effort...

12. Also since we don't have the House

We couldn't really actually do anything with it in terms of getting legislation passed.

11. There is one thing you can count on for sure....

IF (and hopefully it never happens, but...) IF the Republicans ever gain control of the Senate and White House again, they will eliminate the filibuster before you can say "Harry Reid blew it"

13. So long as the vote was private, maybe.

Perhaps it shouldn't be private?

14. Stop, Stop, Stop!

with the "Harry" caving crap...I am so very tired of the pile on 24/7!

HE DID NOT HAVE THE VOTES!

Was he suppose to circumvent the rules of the Senate...make up a few regulations on his own. Come on people, Think.

16. Here is the picture, Cha!

Not enough votes to Pass. He had no Majority. Should we be calling out the Senate Dem's that did not vote? Nope... Let's just smack Harry!
I guess I must be one of those, stupid simpering women, that do not understand politics.Damn it, I guess I have to reeducate myself. I never knew that Harry could have pushed this along without a majority vote. My bad.

17. Perfecto, she! As far as what DU's doing.. but,

I think you have the right idea.. Let's see who didn't vote for it and why not?

Here's to Reality and dealing with it instead of pining away on what didn't magically happen.

18. I put ALL the blame on Harry he is the LEADER

 

and cannot lead and this is not the first time either.

Defend Harry if you want but becasue of his weak and poor leadership we get at least 2 more years of gridlock and most likey will LOSE the senate becasue of him and the handful like him in the Senate.

America does not like weak leaders and the Democrats are going to pay for it in 14 because of his weakness.
