Let’s go to an alternate universe for a brief moment where Democrats hold a nearly 10-seat majority in the U.S. Senate, Chuck Schumer is the majority leader and Mitch McConnell is his minority counterpart.

Is there anyone who believes we would be hearing the following from Schumer in that universe?

Back to reality. Schumer needs to remember the damage done by his predecessor, Harry Reid, to the minority’s ability to wield power in the Senate.

He would also do well to pay attention to the kind of treatment the Republican minority in the House is enduring at the hands of Democrats.

Sen. Schumer can blame the current predicament in which he finds his caucus on Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Harry Reid, Barack Obama and other Democrats who helped set this tone.
