Harry Reid: Senate cooperation with President Romney ‘laughable fantasy’

Just when it seemed like the tag-team of President Obama and the Democrat-controlled Senate was getting so much done, Majority Leader Harry Reid has warned voters that the locomotive of progress will come to a screeching halt if he has to deal with a President Mitt Romney next year.

“Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his severely conservative agenda is laughable,” Reid said in a statement today — the same day his Twitter account bemoaned the lack of bipartisan cooperation in the Senate and blamed Republicans for stalling the recovery.

Reid’s presumption that he’ll still be Majority Leader after the election seems plausible, but do his comments mean he’s expecting a change-up in the White House? Either way, his statement seems to have awakened quite a few Republicans to the importance of all Senate races this year.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus quickly released his own statement in response:

I am encouraged that Harry Reid recognizes Governor Romney’s momentum and is joining the hundreds of millions of Americans who are preparing for a Romney Administration. While Senator Reid might want to continue Washington politics as usual, I’m confident that there are many Democrats who value balancing the budget, reducing burdensome regulations, investing in U.S. energy resources and will be willing to work with Governor Romney to help grow our stagnant economy.

So is this the new tone today?

    No big surprise. The senate was barely capable of working with Obama. Anyone remember the 97-0 vote on Obama’s budget?

      Please have that nurse take Diane Feinstein with her. I am so incredibly tired of this women being a senator from my state.

    My senators were on board with the Cornhusker Kickback in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. They not only wanted me to pay for Medicaid expansion in my state, they wanted me to pick up part of the tab for Nebraska in order to buy Ben Nelson’s vote. Is that what Reid means by reaching across the aisle to get things done?

    I am in Missouri and voted yesterday as I will be out of town on business Tuesday. Todd Akin is a worm – an absolute worm. His “legitimate rape” comment was stupid on several levels, too many to list here actually. For me, the thing that was disqualifying about Akin was his absolute refusal to leave the race when everyone was making it clear that they hated him and wanted him to go. He would risk control of the Senate for his own gain – to me, that is a greater sin than any stupid comments. That said, I voted for Akin yesterday. I think people under-estimate the hatred that McCaskill generates among many, and the absolute hate that many in MO have for Reid. And, “hate” is not too strong of a word. This may end up helping Akin. As I said – Akin is an absolute A-hole of the first order for his selfishness in not dropping out – but as much as I hate Akin for being just another Congress critter of no principle other than their own election, I hate Reid and McCaskill worse. I’m glad Reid did this today – further proof I voted correctly and hopefully others in MO will do this as well.

    • Zane Henry

      I’m no fan of Akin, post-gaffe, but if you review his record, he’s a fairly solid fiscal conservative. (at least what passes for one, in this day and age)

      I’m a big “L” little “r”, and this is the first time I pulled the lever straight ticket Republican, because this election is FAR too important for the protest vote.

      • eveh

        Amen!

      • JimmyNeutron

        I guess where I’m at is this – He does have a relatively conservative (fiscally) voting record…but in MY ideal world there would be term-limits – politics would not be a career – so he’d already be done anyway. The primary thing about Akin that turned me from being mildly disgusted at his stupidity and lack of basic scientific knowledge into pure, unadulterated disgust is his inability to sacrifice himself for the good of the nation (i,e. leaving the race for Sarah Steelman or John Brunner – both of whom would easily beat McCaskill and ensure a Senate gain). That said, a selfish dolt is significantly better than McCaskill/Reid.

        • Zane Henry

          agreed. The longer they stay in there, the more smoothed off their edges become.

          Sure, in a perfect world, he would have folded up the tent, and rightfully so. But, since he didn’t, it has to come down to a seat being a seat. We desperately need to depose der Fuhrer of the Senate, and get back to sane legislative practice.,

        Agree. sometimes we do what is distasteful for a greater good. I admire you for that. i thought he was a stupid A-hole as well

    • Tigre57

      Hey, Mourdock is a bit of a dufus too, but I’m pulling the lever for him all the same. At least the Dem, Donnelly is even worse. We can’t get rid of that Lying POS Harry as Senate Leader if we don’t put in R’s. And we can’t get rid of Obamacare if we don’t get Harry out of the driver’s seat in the Senate.

    • irishgirl91

      I felt anger at Akin’s comment, but later heard that many older healthcare workers had heard the same thing in school. It boggles the mind anyone ever thought that. I pray Akin honestly now knows better. To believe something that is incorrect is not a crime so long as you are willing to learn when you find the truth. I wish he hadn’t been so prideful and stayed, he is lucky McCaskill is so corrupt.

    Harry is what is laughable. Dear Harry – I totally embrace and am unbelievably OK with ANY politician who disagrees with you on every level. You call congressional Republicans “obstructionist”? Hilarious. Reality check Harry – after what we saw for the first 2 yrs of Obama’s term and the train wreck record spending, we purposely put those Republicans in control of the House and gave them more seats in the Senate for the exact purpose of obstructing you. You call it obstruction, we call it job well done!

    • http://twitter.com/Hi_Rise2012 Now the Senate!!

      Very well said! Exactly what I thought after Election day 2010. At least we can block more damage. Until the EO’s came into play.

      • Sol Robinson

        Right. And yet when WE see what YOU are doing, we won’t pull a 2006 on your, asses. No. Because in 2006 we actually worked with your guy.

        Trust me, if you win the presidency (you wont) but if you do, 2014 will just be the flip of 2010. Maybe you shouldn’t write new political rules of how a party operates, if you aren’t willing to see them used against you.

        You guys are damned if you win, damned if you lose.

        AHHH IT’S GOOD TO BE BLUE!

        • Michelle

          srobins – History speaks for itself. Clinton is widely remembered as a good and effective President in large part due to the fact that he worked very well with a 100% Republican congress. And yes, for the most part, Dems who took control in 2006 worked very well with Bush. Also of note, when Romney was Gov. in MA (my Gov since I lived there are the time), he worked well with a 100% Liberal state legislation. We have two previous Presidents who did fairly with congresses from the other party, we have a former Gov. who accomplished good things working with the other party. Obama has done NOTHING to work with the other party, nothing. He wants it his way, all his way and no other way. I’ve already seen firsthand how Romney can work with Dems and STILL get his goals accomplished. Harry Reid will be no match for Mitt Romney, I assure you.

          • Sol Robinson

            Do you not understand that it wasn’t Obama that refused to work with republicans, but the other way around?

            “Our top political priority over the next 2 years should be to deny president Obama a second term”

            “I certainly think bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view.”

            If you really think that the GOPers have been working to appeal to Obama, and he has just been ignoring them, you are wrong.

            The entire idea was to just deny him from getting ANYTHING done, so he would look bad. But it’s not working.

            My point is that you jump on Reid for saying this, but applaud any effort to hamper the president from your side.

            I’m just saying that if you win, it’s not like we forgot that. Any of us. Theres not a democrat in the senate right now who is too happy with the way the house has been stopping any legislation from moving forward. Still waiting on those tax cut extensions btw, but the house is holding the bottom 98 percent hostage, and refusing to vote separately on them and the top 2 percent. How’s that for priorities?

            In 2010 you guys dropped all pretenses of bipartisanship, and declared war on the white house. Just because you get back into that white house, it doesn’t mean the war is over.

            Don’t start shit you can’t finish.

          • Tigre57

            You forgot the really famous one Obama said to the Republicans during the Obamacare BS. “We won”. Pretty much says it all, and it’s how he has run things for 4 years. When they played every dirty game in the book to push through a bill that more than 70% of the country hated, it was time to say no more. Hense the 2010 landslide for conservatives. The house has sent 20+ JOBS bills to the Senate that Harry Reid won’t even let come to a vote because he’s afraid they might pass and actually create jobs. Yeah, he really cares about people. What flavor is that Koolaid you’re drinking?

          • Sol Robinson

            If you honestly believe all this shit, then good luck to ya. But as I said, paybacks a bitch. The 2010 congress made it clear that you aren’t willing to compromise on ANYTHING, and that the only goal was to get rid of Obama. I see NO reason why we shouldn’t do the same.

          • TundraThunder

            I have an IQ of 164, but I don’t have a need to tell people, nor do I care about the “paperwork”. You have just belittled yourself by puffing out your chest and bragging about something not worth boasting about.

            I’m certain there are many on this thread with higher IQs than yours, and even mine.

            We are all in this together and it’s going to take all of us to get this country back on track to prosperity.

          • Sol Robinson

            Unless you have factual evidence to support that claim, I doubt it.

            I only bring out my documented high intelligence when I am called stupid.

            And anyone can see that we are on track to prosperity, all economic measures are trending towards positive.

          • elijahzabmom

            It’s strange when people post things online that others can’t confirm. How are we to know what your IQ is and why should we care?

            No thank you. Using context clues it’s very easy to assume how educated internet users are.

          • Sol Robinson

            Uh huh… I see you have some sort of training in writing analysis? Or are you just magic?

            If you want to call me stupid fine. If you want to refuse evidence to the contrary then that is fine too. I just feel that it is important to provide actual facts in all contexts, whether they are convincing to the audience or not.

          • Guest

            In context? You have no concept of how to use that phrase or idea. If you did, you wouldn’t be a liberal….geesh!

            Really? Then why am I paying $3,192 more this next year for health insurance? Obamacare, perhaps? And if you are as smart as you say you are, you wouldn’t need to bring your ‘documented’ high intelligence out at all. Your posts, your life, and your choices would reflect that.

          • Sol Robinson

            Right. So clearly there are NO smart democrats. It’s not like liberals are on average higher educated. Clearly that is not true. I mean that’d be like 68 Nobel Prize winning scientists endorsing the democratic candidate for the presidency.

            And:

            context [ˈkɒntɛkst]

            n

            1. the parts of a piece of writing, speech, etc., that precede and follow a word or passage and contribute to its full meaning it is unfair to quote out of context

            2. the conditions and circumstances that are relevant to an event, fact, etc.

            Here is an example sentence:

            It will also explore aspects such as the nature of strategic decision making and strategy dynamics in differing contexts ( e.g. public sector ).

            “First of all, I have a documented iq of 142, with the paperwork to prove it.”

            I was merely refuting an attack on my intellect, with a documented fact. If you would like a copy of the testing results, I’d be happy to mail them to you.

            This is your major problem: you seem to dislike objective data.

            I wouldn’t bring this up if someone hadn’t specifically called me stupid. And the iq that I have is in the genius range.

            I’m not saying i’m the smartest person ever either. I can guarantee that George Will has my IQ or higher, because we went to the same high school, a public university affiliated underfunded school for, basically, nerds.

            I’m not an athlete. I’m not an artist. But I am smart, and it’s just not something that I’m ok with people baselessly attacking.

          • Guest

            Starting a sentence with “I was merely…..” is condescending…it makes seem as though the listener/reader is a not-quite-bright child and needs to have something ‘dumbed down’ for them to understand. I swear, I’ll bet the letters on your keyboard are worn off from all the stomping and snorting you do. If it’ll make you feel better to have the last word, then please do…I’m sure the people on this board have better things to do than to read every little comeback that you are obsessed with posting…either that, or get a teaching job in some liberal college where people will hang on your every word…you obviously have diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain!

          • Sol Robinson

            Right. So lets break this down.

            I make a point.

            Someone calls me stupid for making that point.

            I COUNTER that accusation with proof that I am not stupid.

            People insult my intellect more.

            I respond to those statements.

            The people become offended/insulted by my responses, and claim that I am trying to have the last word. And then further insults.

            If you don’t want a response, don’t comment. Simple as that. You don’t get to decide what I talk about or where I do it. If you don’t like it, don’t pay attention to it.

            But I LOVE the victim mentality that allows you to interpret the way I started that sentence as an insult. In your mind, does that make me the bully, and therefore a valid target for more insults?

            Or are you just naturally angry at people that don’t agree with you?

          • Guest

            I’m not an angry person…I’m normally quite a tolerant person…however, you do drain an enormous amount of energy from a person. You’re not a bully…you just have to have the damned last word all the time, and it’s incredibly tiresome. You remind me of a person who used to be my friend. It was always about ‘their’ opinion, ‘their’ way of thinking, etc., and they had to constantly parade it around because they felt insecure and needed approval of other people, and if we didn’t ‘get it’ the first time, they went on and on and on ad nauseum. I don’t care whether you’re smart, stupid, a genius, a liberal, or whatever…I’m simply too tired to listen to or read your drivel posts anymore…you seem to be incredibly OCD about making sure that EVERYONE knows you’re not stupid…and your comment about ‘you don’t get to decide what I talk about…blah-blah-blah…’…of course I don’t, but I had hoped that maybe you’d realize how ridiculous you’re coming across and maybe stop posting your exhausting behavior traits with a little grace…

            Edit: …and any future posts of mine that you may respond to will go unanswered…you will hear crickets…I’ve wasted enough time and energy on you as it is.

          • Sol Robinson

            Insulting people doesn’t really have a corrective effect on their behavior. If you don’t like the way I am coming off, you should say that in a way that isn’t just being an asshole for no reason.

            “In context? You have no concept of how to use that phrase or idea. If you did, you wouldn’t be a liberal….geesh!”

            “Like a liberal wouldn’t doctor up any important documents…laughable!”

            “I’ll bet the letters on your keyboard are worn off from all the stomping and snorting you do”

            “Geesh, srobins6, please get over yourself.”

            You are the one who chose to respond to me. It’s incredibly childish to make a post, and when you get a response to say “oh you just have to have the last word don’t you” or something.

            If you are really done with a conversation, you don’t make multiple passive-aggressive claims that you don’t need the last word, and then still respond.

            It really comes back to what I said about what Reid said: Don’t start shit you can’t finish.

            If you want to be an adult, and say the conversation is finished, then fine. If you responded “I have really had enough of talking to you, I will not respond anymore” then I would have left it alone.

            Instead you have to yet again throw an insult in the middle of your rant about me, while yet again saying you are done talking to me. If you find my unwillingness to take an inaccurate insult in stride as exhausting, I guess that is understandable, but then simply don’t engage with me, and don’t do it repeatedly. It’s like the kid who keeps calling time out and then punching the other kid. You wanna be done?

            Fine. Then stop.

          • Guest

            Anyone notice that in all the quotes of mine that this poster has included in his diatribe of my ‘behavior’ and responses to his posts, he forgot to include the one about the cost of my medical insurance going up by 4 figures? Convenient…and before I get any flak about my responding to srobins6 after I said I wouldn’t do it anymore, I’m only responding to the post so that the thread stays intact. And finally, just to appease this poor, tortured soul, I will use his words “I have really had enough of talking to you, (and) I will not respond anymore”…now let’s see if he’s a man of his word and will leave it alone.

          • Sol Robinson

            Oh I’m sorry, did you WANT to continue the conversations? I would be happy to discuss the premiums, if that is what you would like.

            Well I’m beginning to better understand the mindset that I am dealing with here. You do understand the mind blowing lack of self awareness it takes to respond to my post about how you repeatedly have said that you wanted to to stop discussing this thread. And if you had wanted to talk about the health care bill, why didn’t you just say so?

            In terms of the health care rising costs, a couple of questions: has there been any new coverage to go along with it? Do you have children who are in the applicable age? Or with preexisting conditions?

            The goal of the bill was to make healthcare more affordable to those that couldn’t access it, but also to lower costs for other citizens. While hopefully this would be a direct dollar value lowering of the premiums, other increased benefits also have to come into consideration.

            I am under the opinion that the ideal way to handle this problem is through adjusting the terms of the legislation, rather than simply striking it down. I had a couple of thoughts on that.

            Perhaps a tax credit to the companies if they keep their premiums the same rate, or lower them, to offset the loss of revenue? And maybe the loss of revenue to the government that this would cause could perhaps be offset by some spending cuts. In terms of where and what, I think that the best way to do that is rather than simply cut things we can’t afford, we streamline them. One area where this is a particular area of redundancy is something that isn’t talked about a lot: the intelligence community.

            According to the washington post, there are 1,271 government organizations that relate to the intelligence community. While I’m sure there are a large number of them that are other organizations that just deal with the intelligence community, this is an absurd number. Simply because of different bureaucratic practices, the amount of inefficiency here is probably pretty high. Why not at least combine 15 organizations that among them do 7 different things, and then split them back into 7 new agencies? This isn’t only applicable to this section of government obviously, but it’s the best example I could find. I mean obviously we don’t want to diminish the capacity of our necessary intelligence gathering network, but the idea would be to centralize groups that have most likely arisen due to compartmentalization of larger groups. Institute of blah needs a research division, which becomes research library blah. But also the something bureau needs a research division, so they have a separate one.

            Think about it: if you give lets say 50 million dollars to this network, by the time the specific groups who use the money for research and equipment (or even salary) purposes get their hands on it, it has gone through at least a dozen layers of separate chains of command.

            Not only would this have economic benefits because less interdepartmental liaison type people would be necessary, but in this case it would have really strong national security applications as well. A lot of the warning signs that led up to 9/11, and potentially even what happened in libya, were never shared because the individual pieces were held by different intelligence agencies, who are competitive in nature.

            Now I know classified secrets obviously complicate the issue with this example, but it also provides another unique indicator of how well this could work.

            Why not try to make some organizations completely non-confidential? Surely there could be a single research department for non classified work, like civilian applications of no longer cutting edge military tech.

            Despite the length of that example, the most important thing to take away from this is how much it could do if applied to other branches of government. Now despite the fact that this would displace many workers into an already struggling economy right now, this pitfall could be avoided if this was done gradually, merging organizations a few at a time, and over years.

            But think about this as well! The people who would be entering the private sector would be those who have been working their whole lives in a field, without a proper framework for potential creative exploration. AND THAT is where the private sector shines.

            Basically, this is the liberal argument against government inefficiency: how about instead of LESS government, BETTER government?

            Sorry that this was a bit of a run on, but I thought of this as I was considering your point about the healthcare, and wanted to write it down as soon as possible.

            If you don’t want to respond to this, I understand, but I wouldn’t mind input from a conservative viewpoint.

            @srobins6: Book smarts does not = common sense or logic.

          • Sol Robinson

            Not entirely. Common sense isn’t necessarily implied by high IQ, but logical proclivities are. That is primarily what it measures, not rote learning. Solving logical puzzles quickly, involving short term memory and mental math/logical deduction skills is the entire test.

            This is why it’s not a perfect measurement of being smart. Because it isn’t an all encompassing metric. However, it IS important for logical reasoning and debate skills, and it doesn’t decrease with age. It also indicates your ability to make logical and well reasoned decisions.

            Common sense decision making is much more practical in every day life, but terrible for determining important decisions. Because it can be flawed.

            There is an excellent example of this involving a game show, where you are shown 3 doors. Behind 2 of the doors, there is a goat, and behind one of them there is a car. The host asks you to pick a door, and then reveals a goat behind one of the two you didn’t choose.

            Then you are offered a choice between sticking with your first door, or switching to the remaining one. Which do you do?

          • Sol Robinson

            Well THAT depends on your definition of smart and stupid. The problem is that they are both subjective, each of us prioritizes different skills that all fit under an umbrella we call smart. For example, Einstein was obviously extremely intelligent, but he wasn’t very conscious of his surroundings. According to stories, he would forget to put on his shoes and socks and go to work, not realizing it.

            Actually, the Republican-led Congress has been working on passing jobs, spending and budget bills with bipartisen support.

            It is the Dem Senate, led by Harry Reid which has refused to let over 25 jobs bills even come up for a vote. Bad bills? Vote ’em down, but to not even let them come to the floor for discussion?

            It is the Dem Senate which has refused to work on or pass a budget for the last three years.
            It is the Dem Senate which cast NO VOTES- not one- for Pres Obama’s last three budgets.

            Who is doing the obstruction?

            If you honestly believe all this shit, then good luck to ya. But as I said, paybacks a bitch. The 2010 congress made it clear that you aren’t willing to compromise on ANYTHING, and that the only goal was to get rid of Obama. I see NO reason why we shouldn’t do the same.

            You forgot the really famous one Obama said to the Republicans during the Obamacare BS. “We won”. Pretty much says it all, and it’s how he has run things for 4 years. When they played every dirty game in the book to push through a bill that more than 70% of the country hated, it was time to say no more. Hense the 2010 landslide for conservatives. The house has sent 20+ JOBS bills to the Senate that Harry Reid won’t even let come to a vote because he’s afraid they might pass and actually create jobs. Yeah, he really cares about people. What flavor is that Koolaid you’re drinking?

          • Dana P. Dutcher

            We knew what Obama was before he was elected. That’s why we did what we could to destroy him.

            When you honestly believe that O was going to destroy your country, you should stand against him. “Charter of negative liberties” That is a view of the Constitution that runs counter to what those of us on this side (and I believe most people) believe. BTW, O couldn’t get ONE of his budgets passed and that was also during the first two years when there weren’t enough Repub. to hold a knitting circle much less stop any legislation. The Dems had EVERYTHING and still claim they couldn’t get anything done because of the “evil” Repub. The American people voiced their opinion to the Dems and they knew the people they represented wouldn’t accept the radical changes O had in mind. In the 2yrs since the repubs gained the House, they couldn’t get anything through the Reid Senate so you can hardly say that repubs have undone anything O has gotten through.

          • Sol Robinson

            Right. Obama CLEARLY spent 2 years working on the health care bill because he wanted it to be perfect, not because he needed some GOP support to get the necessary number of votes.

            But this is besides the point: I see your guys as destroying our country too, but that is how politics has always been. It’s just that when a majority was elected, they were given a chance to rule for the greater good. And you guys decided in 2008 to fight the president, and you did. And you were, instead of punished for that, REWARDED for it with a sweep. So if you think we aren’t going to take the same hardline stance, that is:

            LAUGHABLE

          • cheezqueen

            Do you fail to realize it was the AMERICAN PEOPLE who elected the more conservative representatives we sent to Congress and Senate in 2010?

            It was not the “evil Republican Party” who voted- it was the folks. Same folks, for the most part who elected Obama in 2008, and then realized they had buyer’s remorse.

            Those folks corrected their error as they were able in 2010, and have another opportunity to make their wishes known on Tuesday.

            And FYI, that quote you libs love from Mitch McConnell about seeing Obama is a one-term pres dates to 2010- not 2008.

          • Sol Robinson

            Right. That is my point. You spent the first 2 years fighting health care reform, and then used the lack of progress to elect a completely partisan, and politically motivated house. Which then spent the next 2 years refusing to even attempt to work with the president.

          • MizDi

            Robin, do you still think that Obama Himself “crafted the Obamacare legislation”? As with everything else he does/has done, he farmed the work out to others so he could continue campaigning (as he as since 2007)

            Your party had total control of the White House, house, and senate the first 2 years of Obama’s presidency, and they did what with it? Hence, the 2010 elections. Your parties’ policies are losers and your ilk will just not accept that fact. Socialism, multi-culturalism, and redistribution DO NOT WORK! Never has, never will. If republicans take back control of the senate this election, the contrast will be undeniably blinding. I thank your party and Obama for handing America republican control for the next 16 years.

            I don’t fault the GOP for voting NO when that is the reason they were elected. “Obamacare” was opposed by the right and left. The left wanted single payer and the right felt the 2000+ page bill was bad policy.

          • https://twitter.com/justoneblackman JOBMO

            @Srobins6 well said. Payback is a bitch. Republicans will complain about how low the political discord has sunk, when they are the ones mostly responsible for lowering it.

          • Cain

            You are seriously ignorant. Obama had a super majority and when he lost that Harry Reid refused to even bring up over 30 jobs bills passed by the house.

          • Sol Robinson

            First off, never a super majority, because it wasn’t filibuster proof. And you guys, in the senate, filibustered a veteran’s job bill, and in the house are refusing to extend the bush tax cuts for the bottom 98 percent. The senate has already approved it, but you are holding it hostage for the top 2 percent.

            The thing is, you guys can pass all the bills in the house you want, but we have the white house, and we don’t like your bills. There has been NO effort to try to get the president’s approval, because that would require compromise. Which when we have offered it, has been thrown back in our faces.

            Remember simpson-bowels? of course you do, you always complain about how the president didn’t follow it.

            Of course you neglect to mention the fact that it was voted down by the gop house, including your beloved Paul Ryan.

          • Michelle

            srobins – First, I’m not on any side, I’m an Independent. Second, I disagree with your entire comment. Obama and the Democrats have NOT worked with the Republicans at all. Many folks read in the news things like, “House Republicans voted no” and they run with that, calling them the party of No. I’m a person who makes an effort to go further – why did they say no? And when a person looks beyond the misleading news headlines, they find common sense answers.

            I’ll give you just one example (there are many, you are welcome to do your own homework.). People like me helped hand the House to the Reps and gave more seats to the Reps in Senate because for 2 solid years all the Dems did was spend, spend, raise the debt ceiling, spend some more. At the time I lived in MA and am very I was part of putting Scott Brown in the Senate. Back to “The Party of No” and an example… When Congress voted to extend Federal unemployment benefits, the bill was unfunded. Meaning, the money to pay for the extended benefits added to the deficit and the Dems refused to compromise by way of cutting spending on something else in order to pay for the unemployment benefits. It wasn’t paid for, it was simply more money out the door adding to our debt and deficit. The Reps asked for it to be paid for, Dems said no. So, Reps voted no on extended unemployment benefits. So the reality is, Reps are not the Party of No and neither were they against extending the benefits (as MSM widely reported and would have you believe), but rather – they wanted to extend the benefits, they just wanted them paid for by cutting spending on something else. In other words, they were trying to be fiscally responsible like we expected them to, like we elected them to do, like most Americans have to be with their own budgets.

            And yes, absolutely it has also been a matter of Obama refusing to work with the Republicans. Don’t think any of us have forgotten how the Affordable Healthcare Act was passed – Dems completely refused to debate, compromise or negotiate with the Republicans on the bill. The Dems, Obama included, wanted what they wanted and only what they wanted – they wouldn’t include Republicans in the matter, wouldn’t even let them talk. If you want to act like the Dems are these open-minded, willing to compromise lawmakers, you’re choosing to live in a fantasy world. They listen to NO ONE but themselves – and again, that’s why the House was given to the Republicans and more seats in the Senate. You can spin it any way you’d like, it doesn’t change reality.

          • Sol Robinson

            Are you kidding me.

            If that was true, then they would have done it in a WEEK. Instead it took 2 years.

            The fact that you guys are now trying to blame the party that has the house and senate for not bending over backwards to fit the house’s whims, is ridiculous Name ONE thing that the republicans have been willing to compromise on. Anything. Because we have offered spending cuts, in exchange for a 1/10th ratio in revenue increases, and it was shut down.

            American Jobs Act? Shot down.

            There’s been no offer of anything from republicans. No offer of higher taxes for the rich, no offer of defense cuts, nothing. What is your proposal that isn’t just pure republican ideas?

            I mean I know why. Like mourdock said, you guys think that bipartisanship is that we should come across to the republican point of view. And now, after this much shit, you think that if Romney pulls off a miracle and he wins, just yelling about how it was really the dems who were the obstructionists, THAT is somehow going to convince us to be bipartisan?

            Truly LAUGHABLE.

            And if one party controls the presidency and the senate, that means they are the majority party, and the minority should be trying to appeal to them. It’s what we did up until 2006, we didn’t hold everything hostage because we were more concerned with party than country.

            And you DON’T show bipartisanship by showing up and starting efforts to repeal a bill that was just passed after a long debate. That is a declaration of war, and if you think that the american public is stupid enough to blame the Democrats for that, you are sadly mistaken.

          • elijahzabmom

            Read Bob Woodad’s book. Obama never intended to work with the other side of the aisle. As an independent that bothers me.

          • Sol Robinson

            http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/09/05/speed-read-juiciest-bits-from-bob-woodward-s-book-price-of-politics.html

            “In Obama’s first meeting with Democratic and Republican House and Senate leaders, just two weeks after his inauguration, he told the group that he wanted to hear everyone’s ideas and come to a bipartisan solution—words he had run his presidential platform on. He told those assembled, “If it works, we don’t care whose idea it is.” But the next day his tune changed when Rep. Eric Cantor, then House minority whip, passed out a draft of a potential economic recovery plan that essentially met only the Republican demands. After reading the one-page spread, the president responded: “I can go it alone but I want to come together. Look at the polls. The polls are pretty good for me right now.” He then told Cantor, “Elections have consequences and Eric, I won.”

            I read that as Obama saying he wants to deal, then republicans returning with “fuck you,” and Obama overreacting.

            I don’t think that ONLY republicans are to blame. But yet I still haven’t seen one thing that the republicans were willing to compromise over, and he offered up some medicare and social security reform, despite how much that upsets us.

            He was willing to anger his base in order to deal with the GOP, and yet what was the republican’s offer?

          • elijahzabmom

            He went to the GOP and told them that elections have consequences and that “he won.” I told you I am an independent and that is why I voted for Gov. Romney. He is NO right wing nutjob. Most of the GOP base accepts that he is bi-partisan and pragmatic. They know Romney will do things they oppose. I am very cynical and know that politicians as a rule are silver tongued liars. The best thing a voter can do is look at the relevant record. Before 2008 Obama had a thin legislative and non existent executive record. I am okay with Romney’s record as Gov. and business owner. I hypothesize that Romney’s main focus as president will be the economy. If he fails we’ll vote him out in four years.

          • Sol Robinson

            And if there is anyone who can stand up to Mittens, it’s Reid. Because he takes so much offense at how Romney represents his religion, he’s willing to do anything to stop him. Even play by your guy’s rules, and when you find out what the receiving end of that is like, you are going to wish you had voted for Obama.

            This IS all hypothetical of course, because all polling analysis still shows a clear Obama victory.

          • Tigre57

            If there is anyone who should be ashamed at how he’s represented the Mormon religion, it should be Reid. I’d like to know how he can say he’s a good Mormon and support abortion. The two don’t mix. While Reid is a lying POS, who will say ANYTHING to stay in power, Romney is a good, decent and faithful man, who puts others before himself at every turn. Enjoy that Koolaid Srobins6.

          • Michelle

            OK srobins – I’ll play. How is Romney representing his religion? Romney was my Gov. for 4 yrs, didn’t once see a single display of his religion in the course of doing his job. Have watched him closely as a candidate – again, haven’t seen him practice his religion or even bring it into his campaign. So help me understand – what exactly has Romney represented about his religion that is offending Reid? (and Mittens, really? That speaks volumes for your level of maturity.)

          • Sol Robinson

            I honestly have no idea Michelle. I’m talking about what REID thinks, these are things he has expressed.

            And I hate to admit this, but… I actually like Mitt Romney more than most of my fellow democrats. Most of us see him as a sneering plutocrat, I just think he doesn’t really know what life is like when you aren’t a rich white male. I see it time and time again: He’s really a nice guy, with just no understanding of how the rest of the world works.

            Even the thing with the red cross recently, while most people on my side called him just a jerk for how he gave the red cross something they didn’t ask for, I think in his head he just didn’t get that it wasn’t helpful.

            I think that if he had stuck to his principles that he had shown when he was governor, where he wasn’t loved but wasn’t totally hated either, he would have been a fine candidate, and a return to sanity for the GOP. Instead he swerved far right.

            Most democrats use mittens as an insult, but it’s my nickname for him. It’s like he’s a spoiled housecat, still lovable, but no idea what life is like in the wild. Maybe if he learned how crazy the jungle can be, he wouldn’t turn his nose up at the rest of the cats in this odd, political cat based scenario.

          • Sol Robinson

            He obviously understands how to run both a government entity and a private company. I’m not saying I would have voted for him of course, I’m a strong Obama guy, but when he was nominated, I felt like I did in 2008 about John McCain, which was that, if elected, he wouldn’t be like bush.

            But then they sold their souls to the far right, and it made me bitter, sad, and angry.

            And then there is of course the non stop lies, that hasn’t helped either.

The became worse than everything they say they hate about the Right. They lost me and countless others. Don’t sit there and pretend the Dems are perfect angels and everything is the Republican’s fault – Dems divided this country during Bush’s terms, have furthered that divide (even The One participates – calls voting an act of revenge) and I will never forget it or forgive.

    That day back in November 2010 when Harry Reid won re-election I actually cried a little bit. He needs to go away and live his life off his ill-gotten millions and leave the rest of the country alone. Asshat.

    • michael s

      if you remember sharron angle was leading everywhere,until Joy Behar ragged her on the view for 3 days thus tipping the election for reid.

  • r_coplin2001

    Only way to weaken Harry Reid power in the Senate is to make him the minority leader and that is to get a few more Republicans in the Senate.Harry did you and then house speaker Nancy Pelosi try to work with the Republicans on anything in the last 4 years.

  • Sam G Jr

    Apparently the irony that he hasn’t brought up a budget in the past 3+ years, with his own president, is lost on him.

    • Adela Wagner

      On purpose. If they passed a budget they might have to at least look at it, they certainly would not stick to it. Why have a budget when your spending money like you stole it…oh wait, they did.

  • tessaprn

    He hasn’t worked with the Democrats. So what makes this old senile fart think anyone believes he is working with anyone else? I do believe we need to get a caravan together, travel to Nevada and slap everyone in the face for this POS.

  • G.

    I can’t wait for Harry to pop up and state that: “This Senate is lost…”, much as the traitorous b*st*rd stated: “This war is lost…” while our troops were still fighting and dying in Iraq and ‘Stan. Typical Dem POS in Congress.

  • Martin2717

    Reid is an idiot. Why would he say this, now, before the election? It would have been smarter for him to say this after the election, assuming his party holds the senate. If the GOP has half a brain, they should make an ad on this and run it all weekend until Election Day.

  • Gallatin

    President Romney I say the first executive order that you issue should cut all funding for cowboy poets.

  • ked5

    honestly, I don’t understand why anyone is surprised dingy harry won’t put what is best for the country ahead of partisian politics. really, whatever gave anyone the idea he cared about anyone or anything other than his power and bank account?

  • edward cropper

    If you look up scumbag in the dictionary you will see a picture of Harry Reid and a comment telling you to see Chuck Schumer.

  • tomtom1983

    Which is why you won’t be in office another term you obstructionist hypocrite.

    That proves who is really obstructing the federal governments progress. We already knew, duh.

  • poljunkie♪

    Harry Reids remarks are the perfect example why we need term limits.

    He expects the Republicans to compromise and if they dont he calls them obstructionists. If the Democrats wont work with Republicans he praises them for sincerity.

    • EEKman

      All he said is that if Mitt thinks he can pass ‘severely conservative’ agenda it’s not gonna happen. It’s not really a threat it’s just reality. Your policies don’t have widespread support. It’s the liberal constituency that will laugh The Teapubs off the political stage.
      even if Romney had a snowballs chance of winning at this point (he doesn’t) He would have to pivot to the center, ignoring the Teapubs. either way Teapubs lose.

      • elijahzabmom

        Is Mitt Romney a “severe conservative?”

        • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

          Not really.

          • Michael Morris

            In fact, there’s been some doubt as to whether he’s really a conservative at all. Which is why R enthusiasm didn’t pick up until he announced Ryan as his running mate.

          • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

            Maybe he’s just a regular Republican then. 😛

        Oh Romney has every chance of winning. Just because your beloved CNN, PMSNBC, and whatever else children like you watch says the opposite doesn’t make it true. You’re scared sh*tless Romney might win.

  • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

    Awww Harry… we will miss you when they put you in that little padded cell. They won’t allow us to visit or anything.

  • tomtom1983

    Time for Reid to go. He is threatening the American people with collapse and attempting to intimidate voters. Typical liberal. Bye bye!!

    • goldwater89

      He was as good as gone in 2010 until the Tea Party nominated Sharron Angle.

      • EEKman

        For the record, I wish we had more Goldwater republicans. My hat is tipped to you sir.

  • tomtom1983

    He needs to be investigated because that sounds like a threat against voters. Its against the law to intimidate or threaten the peoples right to vote.

    Issa, we need you to check this out now.

  • dyardley

    It’s been stated by others before me but I have to repeat it because I think it is so apt. Harry Reid IS the face of everything that is dysfunctional in our Government. There are unfortunately many like him but because of his position he just magnifies the problem. Please God Mitt Romney will be our 45th President which will take Harry out of the leadership role. Then its up to Nevada to vote him completely out.

    • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

      We’ve been trying for years, but for some reason he won’t budge!

      • EEKman

        It’s like people like him or something!

        • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

          Funny how I’ve never met anyone who liked Harry Reid in all my years living here in Nevada. So, your assumption people like him, must be false since he’s the biggest joke we have going in my city. However, there is a thing called tampering with voting machines like we see with Romney votes going to Obama.

          • EEKman

            I see so If a liberal politician wins that you don’t like, it’s fraud. Only liberals commit election fraud. Got it. (eye roll)

          • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

            It’s only fraud if they tamper with the voting machines, sign up dead people to vote, have illegal aliens voting, etc. etc. Rolling your eyes? Make sure you catch them before they roll too far.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Harry Reidiculous is breaking the law by refusing to pass a budget so if the libs happen to luck out and hold on to the senate and this continues perhaps We The People should consider a lawsuit to force deadbeat Harry and the Dooms in the US Senate to do their job or else be expelled. It’s time for some major “house”cleaning in both chambers of Congress anyway. We need to take the senate now bcuz dingy Harry’s around for another 4 years still.

    Is this Harry’s way of admitting Romney will be the winner?

  • http://profiles.google.com/sanddog Ms Anonymous

    IF Romney wins on Tuesday, it’s time to start the Harry Reid investigations. God knows there’s enough to bury him politically until the end of time.

  • Sol Robinson

    Oh yeah. This is TOTALLY the new tone. It’s not like you guys said that the “number 1 political goal” of your newly elected congress was to make sure Obama didn’t get reelected. I mean this is just so NEW.

    DId you REALLY not see this coming? Are you TRULY shocked that your rabid anti Obama congress’s actions caused this response?

    I’m laughing too.

    In a banana republic (which reid and his ilk are trying to reduce us to.) he would have been executed for treason by now.

    We need to get rid of all these politicians who “don’t play well with others”. We hired them to do a job. If they won’t do it, there are hundreds of thousands of Americans standing behind them in line, who are at least willing to TRY. Enough of the partisanship. Time to fix this country. Tired of the lazy, mean, pension heavy politicians who suck the life out of our country.

  • libysnow

    Senator Reid spends more time on Twitter than he does on passing a budget.

  • jorgenfleisterman

    Wow. Talk about misleading headline. The summary contradicts it.

    “‘Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him *to pass his severely conservative agenda* is laughable,’ Reid said”

    “lack of bipartisan cooperation in the Senate…”

    There’s a significant difference between bipartisan cooperation to pass necessary legislation and just rubberstamping the president’s agenda. If Mitt became president and asked for crazy things, there’s no obligation for the Democrats to bow to his agenda. Bipartisan cooperation means compromising on both sides.

  • http://www.facebook.com/michael.derby.3998 Michael Derby

    How funny. Now the republicans are getting mad because the democrats may stage their own revolt to Romney. Why aren’t you all mad now? Hmm.

  • Danny Wheeler

    Hopefully come Tuesday, we’ll have the last laugh!

  • http://twitter.com/independenttom Independent Tom

    What is truly laughable is how the GOP will take the Senate and rubber stamp everything conservative despite Harry’s infantile temper tantrums. Run along now Harry, that’s the good chap. The adults will be in charge very soon.

  • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

    Lol, Reid is right. Democrats aren’t going to work with Republicans. Here’s what Romney wants to do: more tax cuts for the wealthy, higher taxes for the middle class and lower class, double the interest rates on federal student loans, abolish Pell Grants and other govt. grants, end Medicare and Medicaid and turn it into a voucher “every man for himself” lottery, allow insurance companies to deny everyone with a pre-existing condition, ship every job possible to China, give incentives to said China-shipping companies, mandate all states cut the number of teachers, police officers, and firefighters in half, end the public school system, edit the BOR so it only protects the religious freedom of Christianity, close down Veterans programs and hospitals, get rid of the department of education for more unnecessary military spending, get us caught up in an unnecessary war, alienate America’s allies, end disaster funding, abolish women’s rights, bring back the voting laws of Jim Crow, force LGBT community into “pray the gay away” camps, and much, much more. If Romney wins, bye-bye America the Beautiful.

    think about it for a moment,Harry Reid has done nothing for Navada they have one of the highist unemployment rates in the nation, makes you wonder why his state keeps him in washington,just like pelosi she is certifiablely nut’s and her people don’t see that….say’s something about the two states.
