What a difference…

…a few years and a transfer of power makes.

I haven’t heard Democrats been so eloquent—and make so much sense—in quite a few years.

[Via the geniuses at Breitbart TV.]

    Can’t wait to see this clip on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN…

  2. Steve Says:

    Don’t hold your breath, Dave.

    Am I turning blue yet???

    The people counter with our own nuclear option. A 40 foot wall all the way around DC an fill it with water.

  5. J.J. formerly Jimmy J. Says:

    Can. Not. Believe. It. I agree with all those democrat Senators! Hell may have frozen over.

  6. stumbley Says:

    Notice how “articulate” Senator Obama is…and how he seems to be reading a TelePrompTer even then…

    Isn’t it amazing that he learned to read so well but managed to miss things like adding and subtracting, positive and negative numbers, and compound interest?

    Personally, I cannot recall the last time I heard a Marxist of any flavor tell the truth. To tell the truth would cause all of their supports to flee, as if exposed to the Black Death. Truth is a variable commodity, to be sold or bartered by our beloved anti-American Marxist (aka Socialist, Liberal, Progressive, etc.) leaders, as the need arises.

    Thanks, Neo-Neo.
    There’s something about Feckless Harry Reid that gives me an impulse to slap the living shiite outta his simpering face. If I could do it in 3-Stooge harmony with Dodd and Chuck-You Schumer as the other recipients, my early 2010 would be Bliss.

    But they still managed to be full of it at the same time. :) They’re talking about filibustering nominees and not legislation. Something that didn’t really have the same precedent and might (depending on your opinion) actually be an abuse of the Senate rules.

    He didn’t really learn to read all that well (“corpsman” ). Whoever loads the Messiah’s speeches into the teleprompter – i.e., the true leader of the free world – needs to start spelling phonetically to obviate the risk of future gaffes.

    Can. Not. Believe. It. I agree with all those democrat Senators! Hell may have frozen over.

    Same here. I don’t feel so good…

  12. Count to 10 Says:

    Given that the “nuclear option” was only going to be about judicial nominees, not actual bills?

  13. Moderate Islamist Says:

    The Breitbart clip falsely claims Democratic leaders were criticizing GOP use of the reconciliation process, and accuses them of “hypocrisy” for currently supporting the use of reconciliation
    to pass healthcare reform.

    In fact, those Democrats were criticizing a 2005 Republican proposal to change Senate rules that was unrelated to reconciliation, which is a procedure that is part of the Senate rules.

    Conservatives, led by Fox News have now redefined reconciliation as the “nuclear option”
    “Nuclear option” was coined by the GOP to describe a process to change Senate filibuster rules. The term “nuclear option” was coined by former Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS), one of the leading advocates of a 2005 proposal to change the Senate rules on filibusters for judicial nominations. After Republican
    strategists deemed the term a political liability, Republican senators began to attribute it to Democrats, and Fox started repeating the Republicans’ false attribution of the term to the Democrats.

    Is anyone surprised?

  14. marine's mom Says:

    The most ironic thing I have seen in a long time. Bet they don’t see it though.

  15. neo-neocon Says:

    miderate islamist: yes, that is the liberal meme du jour. The problem is that the filibuster had not been used before to block judicial appointments—the Democrats were extending it where it had not gone before, and the Republicans were against that. Now, the Democrats are trying to stop the filibuster in a case where it has never been stopped before. Reconciliation has never been used for a bill that is not more generally budgetary in nature, never been used for legislation so enormously sweeping, never been used for a bill which is disliked by a strong majority of the American public. So the analogy works against the Democrats’ actions, not in favor of them.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
