They want to do it by changing the rules for filibusters. Just think, the Democrats will be able to pass legislation without the input of any Republicans whatsoever! Joy and merriment flows throughout Lefty land. Now they will be able to get things done!!!
Have they any cognizance of a period of time when they are not in control? How long has it been since Democrats were in the minority? It'll never happen again can it? And yet, in two more years, our own Jon Tester will be replaced along with about ten more Democrat Senators, leaving the present majority leader who once said
"Some in this chamber want to throw out 214 years of Senate history in the quest for absolute power," he said then. "They think they're wiser than our Founding Fathers. I doubt that's true."Good old Harry, always available for a laugh. Even if he doesn't intend it. I am sure that he will regain his reverence for the founders after January of 2013. So, go ahead and muscle through the change in rules. just be aware that what goes around comes around, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may begin his acceptance speech by noting: "I couldn't have done it without Harry."
