Lying, back-stabbing, dishonest: Guess which Senate party leader those words more aptly describes -- Republican Bill Frist, or Democrat Harry Reid?
If you guessed Reid, you're right!
The signatures of 14 Senate centrists, seven from each party, spilled across the last page of a hard-won compromise on
President Bush's judicial nominees. But whatever elation the negotiators felt, the Senate's Democratic leader did not share it.
In the privacy of his Capitol office last Monday night, Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., asked for commitments from six Democrats fresh from the talks. Would they pledge to support filibusters against Brett Kavanaugh and William Haynes, two nominees not specifically covered by the pact with Republicans?
Some of the Democrats agreed. At least one, Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska, declined.
If you read the entire article, you find that Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu also claims that she declined Reid's request.
This must not stand. Nuke Reid. Nuke him now.
A question for GOP senators Lindsay Graham, Mike DeWine and John Warner -- do you feel like complete morons now? You should. Good faith? With these Senate Democrats? If anyone ever wondered if it was possible to fail an IQ test -- you three have answered it in the affirmative.
