On the Senate floor this afternoon, minority leader Mitch McConnell asked for a vote on President Obama’s craptastic proposal for averting the fiscal cliff. Harry Reid swiftly shot him down:

Reid’s own little stunt proved McConnell’s point: that the president’s proposal is lousy.

Moreover, Reid insisted that the Obama and Geithner’s plan wasn’t even real:

Is that so?

So what does it say when the Democrats won’t even touch The One’s idea with a ten-foot pole?

Oh. You mean like this one?

Good question.

Of course.

Sen. McConnell’s response:

  • NumbuhOne

    If the proposal isn’t real, why is Tiny Tim all over CNBC and Bloomberg promoting it?

    • Zefal

      This is the ghost of budget Bullshit. We will be visited by 3 more budget ghosts.

        Ha ha! Now,that’s funny!

    Unbelievable. The Dems dare us to act on the “fiscal cliff”, and as soon as we do, they call it a “stunt”. On their own bill, no less! Obama and Reid are the leaders of the Gang That Couldn’t Govern Straight.

    • ZoriahShepard

      They must’ve truly believed that the GOP wouldn’t call them on their dare. Now they’re scrambling.

      • Zefal

        They truly believe know that the msm will cover for them when Republicans hoist democrats by their own petard.

          They know it, because it’s true. The media will most definitely keep the Dems away from their own mess.

    Harry Reid is a heinous piece of human garbage. He is a pathological liar and corrupt as politicians come. If the GOP had any real leadership they would destroy him until he was radioactive and afraid to open his yapper, but somehow its the Republicans that always end up looking stupid.

    Im tired of it, and i know im not the only one.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Harriett is an angry old man with a dwindling mental faculty who one day soon will find himself stumbling around an old folks home trying to remember who he is, who he used to be, and why anyone would care. Oh happy day!!!!!!!!!!

      It’s a shame the so called party “leadership” only seems to be interested in obstructing the actual conservatives that inconsiderately got themselves elected.

    At least McConnell is pushing back, Boehner seems to be capitulating. Hey McConell, how about we have the House vote on it? See how many dems vote against Obama’s “plan”.

    • r_coplin2001

      How about the Republicans in the House vote Boehner out as Speaker of the House.

      • http://twitter.com/MDMorris_1707 Michael Morris

        Why not do both?

  • ceemack

    Would voting on an actual budget be a “stunt”?

    • http://twitter.com/MDMorris_1707 Michael Morris

      Of course, why do you think they stopped doing such things after the eminently sensible Democrats wrested control of the senate from those stupid bullies in the GOP.

    Dang bunch of RACIST !! How dare y’all expect to actually vote on the Lord and saviors plan, Just who do you think you are mister?
    Hey you, get off of my cloud.

      Hey, you don’t have a cloud. That’s Obama’s cloud!

  • GaryTheBrave

    O/T but thanks to DesertLover’s blog, I am reminded that TODAY is the 1800th day without a budget. Twenty-five more days will be exactly five years.

    Racist White Male Republican Harry Reid Blocks Messianic Messiah’s Last Best Hope For Change. –The Headline if the mind of the average 0bama voter.

  • detroit19

    Dingy Harry is officially demented; send the ambulance and white coats.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    because it doesn’t play into the narrative that the republicans are the ones holding everything up.

  • r_coplin2001

    Have you noticed that not even Harry Reid wants a vote on President Obama debt reduction plan even he knows its a piece of garbage.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Good for McConnell, but Harry Reidiculous and the Dooms will never be held accountable for their obstructionism.

  • http://www.righthook38.com righthook38

    Our federal government is a joke. Other countries are laughing at us. Both Republicans and Democrats are taking us for fools, and I suppose we are, since we voted their useless behinds back into office. Reid, Pelosi and Boehner for that matter all need to retire.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      I agree but I’m perfectly willing to let the die in office as long as they do it tomorrow. =P

  • Zane Henry

    Barry’s plan would receive the same support as his budgets. No democrat in House or Senate would want to make themselves radioactive by supporting his nonsense.

    I get the mental image of a child bringing in his crayola scrawls to his parents, who lavish praise on him for his artistic prowess, only to toss it in the garbage after a couple weeks of display on the fridge.

  • People Corporation

    Convicted pedarist Harry Reid. Anyone inspected his crawl space lately?

    I have always said that liberalism is a mental disorder, this proves me right.

    This comes from the uber-wealthy Reid who fussed til he got to eat popcorn & snacks while viewing a free movie screening of “Lincoln” in Washington, D.C.
