  •  So, you would propose that to fix this... (0+ / 0-)

    ....  we just need to get rid of Harry Reid, then?

    And people wonder why we never make any progress.

    Sure, get rid of Harry Reid, he's a friggin' joke.  But replacing him with another of the DNC's picks among the Democratic Party's leadership will result in the same exact problem.

    And then there you'll be railing against, I don't know, Dick Durbin and trying to get him primaried, and when he's out then you'll still be in the same boat because the NEXT guy will be just the same on this subject.

    Yes, Harry Reid is a dickhead who should have brought all of the proposed filibuster reform ideas to the floor for a vote.

    He didn't, and that's not just because Harry Reid didn't want them to get a vote.

    It's because the DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADERSHIP, from the White House to the House Minority Leaders didn't want it.

    It's because the DEMOCRATIC Senators didn't want it.

    It's because the Democrats, as a party, did not want it.

    Don't sit there and waste your efforts just blaming Harry Reid when he's only part of the problem.

    Getting rid of Harry Reid, alone, won't solve the problem.

    And that's my point.
