Blue-on-blue: Libs slam Sen. Harry Reid for agreeing to filibuster reform

In two votes tonight, the Senate approved modest reforms which are intended to help break the gridlock in Washington and move legislation through Congress more quickly.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? The move was applauded by President Obama.

Other liberals weren’t so happy with the Senate Majority Leader. For once, Speaker John Boehner wasn’t the one on Capitol Hill being accused of caving.

Don’t look at us … we didn’t vote for him.

  • SpinMeNot

    Wait, is that a crack in the solidarity of the left?

    • journogal

      New promises of “free” money and other tangible freebies will get them back in line.

  • Vennoye

    Nope, they just take their cue from MSM. When Harry is back in good graces with MSM they will love him again. Talk about mindless lemmings………………

  • SuperFash

    As usual, they demean & use filthy epithets.

    • Elaine

      What disgusting posts from liberals. Seriously.

    • Bookthief

      lol – like tea bags don’t?

      • SuperFash

        There you go, proving my point.
        God watch over you.

        • Bookthief

          And Santa watch over you.

  • Kindaconservative

    Do the democrats want the republicans to make these longed for filibuster reform changes when they are the Senate majority? Or are they just a bunch of unprincipled a-holes that want to make a power grab, repercussions be damned?

  • GTJessop

    Lol, I checked out Gizmo’s TL, over six thousand caps-lock profanity laced pearls of wisdom. The Democratic voter at it’s finest, America…

      I did the same thing…amazing that someone his age would need to stoop to that in order to get his point across.

    • Sean Minturn

      He looks like a typical old union goon to me.


    THIS has their panties in a bunch?????????

    Their base is insane….

    • $21367552

      Well I’d rather “get my panties in a bunch” about gridlock in Congress than about the president’s birth certificate or gays getting married or whatever it is that gets your panties in a bunch.

      • TocksNedlog

        Do you have any comment to make that is actually ABOUT the subject of this thread?

        • Joe W.

          Nope. Trolls NEVER do.

    • VineyardSmahts

      Of course their panties are in a bunch–this means they won’t be able to ram down our throats whatever ill-conceived reactionary nonsense legislation they are shown by their tree spirit guides.

  • Jack Deth

    Gun control is still a loser for the Democrats. Especially those Democrats representing predominantly red states. And are up for reelection in the 2014 mid terms. They want to back away from Reid’s, Pelosi’s, Feinstein’s, McCarthy’s and Obama’s lunacy and hope this all goes quietly away.

    Reid saw this as the lesser of two evils, even though he did get took. And Feinstein’s bill will NEVER get the sixty votes needed.

    • Bookthief

      Yeah, rest easy Skeeter – while you were buying up guns right and left to beat down this Socialist Government, the USM has been buying up a few things of their own that will make you dust in 1 to 2 seconds.

      Keep making those gun manufacturers rich, Skeets, like all your DA buddies. No one of substance will notice you’re gone.

    I think Wesley from Star Trek ought to put on his Obama pajamas and get a good nights sleep.

  • Lou Ploch

    AN OPEN LETTER TO HARRY !!!Dear Harry. At this point I feel that your filibuster vote is what you deserve. I really hope that the Republicans FILIBUSTER 100% of every meaningful legislation that is brought to the Senate. YES 100%. That way the right wing stations and moderators will blame you for the stalemate that we will see in the Senate. They will wipe up the airwaves with the do nothing Democratic Senate and you will be the laughing stock of the Senate. You deserve it… you caved… or did the lobbyists grease your palm. YES, MY HOPE IS THAT NOTHING GETS DONE IN THE SENATE so you can understand what you did. The senate will probably get an approval rating of 5% and its all your fault.

    Ooooooh.. Careful! Tough guy Will Wheaton’s angry.

  • HARP2

    Look for barry to start using the pocket veto.

    A bill can also become law without the President’s signature if, after
    it is presented to him, he simply fails to sign it within the ten days
    noted. If there are fewer than ten days left in the session before
    Congress adjourns, and if Congress does so adjourn
    before the ten days have expired in which the President might sign the
    bill, then the bill fails to become law. This procedure, when used as a
    formal device, is called a pocket veto.

    Same as voting present.

  • TocksNedlog

    Gee, libs, I wonder if maybe — just maybe! — Reid is doing this in anticipation of the Dems losing Senate seats in the 2014 mid-terms. #TwoDimensionalThinking

  • rinodino

    Good healthy debate is ok

  • stuckinIL4now

    If all they cared about was the gridlock in the Senate, all they had to do was just drop-kick Harry Reidiculous outta power. Dembeciles.

  • therantinggeek

    Awww, a bunch of virtual sadfaces on Twitter, predominantly from the Left since Senator Reid refused to play ball. Here, allow me to add this little touch to each of them: :(

    Happy Friday!!! 😀

  • Jonny Red

    I am not hugely surprised that Harry Reid would walk the razors edge on this. He has already voiced timid opposition to the gun grabbers, and he helped finance one of the best shooting clubs in the world. I think if a different issue was at stake he might have voted more on party lines. Libs need to remember that Blue Dog Democrats believe in gun rights just as passionately as Republicans do.

  • mike_in_kosovo

    Filibuster reform? So, dingy harry isn’t going to be filling the amendment trees on bills anymore? He’s not going to call for cloture as the first action after the bill reaches the Senate floor as a way to block discussion/amendments (and incidentally run up that false ‘filibuster’ total) anymore?

  • Guest

    Comrade Reid showing no signs of retiring,
    covering his ass by not going more extreme.

  • papa bear

    I think that Nancy Pelosi stole Harry’s balls and keeps them in her purse. Harry clearly let down the Progressives with his so-called “agreement” with McConnell.

  • Tom Lund

    my favorite part – “Don’t look at us … we didn’t vote for him”.

  • BeeKaaay

    Please let the leftwingwackos eat each other. This requires the right wing to actually have power.

  • TocksNedlog

    You’re lost, little girl.

    You forgot:

  • rinodino

    Good stuff, at least you have gotten over the denial part, there maybe hope for righties

  • Jack Deth

    Oooooooooooooh…. Burn!

    Eleven whole comments to your name!

    Any up votes from your pathetic drivel?

    Things that slow over at DU and Kos you decide to light here?

  • rinodino

    Trust me you will get use to me. I tend to grow on people 😉

  • mike_in_kosovo

    So does jock itch – doesn’t mean we like either one.

  • rinodino

    And that’s ok but ill still be here unless you conservatives don’t like dissent??? Or is that just a trait of the big bad left???

  • mike_in_kosovo

    Deleting posts and bannings for dissent are the milieu of sites like Huffinglue Post and (non)Think(ing)Progress, not conservative sites.
