    must have shit himself when the decision to blow Obama's labor board nominees out of the water, and severely limit Obama's ability to do recess appointments that the GOP doesn't approve of first, came down from the College Republicans for Life in Robes immediately after his bad faith non-deal with McConnell.

    Not because he was shocked at the bad faith screwjob and his deal proving to be a joke only a fool would think was worth a damn. He's been in the US Senate too long not to know that the GOP was going to go back on its word of "honor". It was a sham, he isn't stupid or naive, he knew they would blow it up.

    What Harry Reid didn't know, couldn't know was the timing would be so fast that he looked like this much of a simpleton and a castrated fool. Harry Reid shit his pants because of the timing.

    Instant pie in the face.

    As soon as he cut one of the worst "gentleman's handshake agreements" of his entire political career in DC, the pie flew up in his face on a hairtrigger while he could still smell McConnell's sweaty hand stank on his own palm.

    The problem for Harry Reid is that the GOP gave him no grace period to come up with some bullshit to save face before they bit him on the ass and made a fool of him.

    My theory has been for a while now that he is not running for that Senate seat again. Or else he wouldn't have either talked all that shit about Romney to get Romney and Fox News freaking out during the election, or cut this stupid, stupid deal on taking the reform out of reform when it comes to GOP obstructionism. He had to see the deal fallin apart coming. Just down the line.

    But the GOP has put Harry Reid in a place he can't get out of without doing something in retaliation. They spit in his face. And they keep spitting in his face.

    If he doesn't do something, he might as well hand over the gavel to somebody else.

    Nobody in DC is going to even show him face-saving faux respect if he doesn't act.

    •  Both Harry Reid and Senator Levin (0+ / 0-)

      should be ashamed of themselves.

      Reid for being a sucker, and Levin let the GOP play their "where are the old speeches" game as if it was a legit good faith action when it clearly wasn't.

      I think Harry Reid better think of something to do, and something harsh, in retaliation or he's going to be in hell until this Senate is up.

      If they get away with the shit they have pulled since "the deal", Reid's going to spend most of his time getting punked with Freeper level shit from the GOP.

      I don't see how Obama gets a Supreme Court Justice on the bench if somebody unexpectedly dies or retires. Even one of the court's non-Conservatives. If the status quo is what stays in place now.

      Nothing is going to be out of bounds.
