    "I was against this. Didn't do anything to stop it, but I was against it. What could I do? My hands were tied. I followed orders. It's not like there was a discharge petition i could have signed to force a vote and stop this frontal assault on democracy. Not like i could have blocked the resolution that put our fate in the hands of the evil Cantor. There was nothing i could do. Nothing."

    But now, now, i go on tv and sound all snarly and brave.

    Post facto bravery. NOW he wants to go after Cruz? NOW?!?!?!?! Where was he three weeks ago? Two weeks ago? Last week? What the hell did he do to stop this, to end this?

    If he had had the balls to sign the discharge petition this crap would have ended before the ink was dry. He had his chance to be brave, he cowered.

    I call bs. Preening on tv means nothing when you walk into a caucus room and do nothing.

    The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis

    Peace on Earth was all it said.
