  •  ok: the question is WHY DON'T THEY? (1+ / 0-)

    When the Repugs were in charge of the Senate, they were complete @$$h*les.  For years, they were complete jerks.

    Then, when the Dems are in charge, they let the Repugs have all the conveniences they want, allow them to slow down bills, put holds on candidates, whenever they want.

    WHY?

    I think I know the reason - Tom Daschle's still influencing the Senate, because he's still advising Obama.  In my view, Obama's admiration for Tom Daschle is the single worst mistake Obama ever made, and it is responsible for the disaster in 2010 elections.

    Daschle is the worst majority leader we have ever had, but his tactics continue.  For some reason, Obama took a liking to him or admired him - for some godforsaken reason.

    Daschle's influence on the Senate has to stop.  God what a mistake to let the Daschle method still go on.  It has taken the Dems 12 years to understand what a f*ckup Daschle was, despite the way he frittered away a Democratic majority in the 90's and then was unequivocally disgraced by losing his own Senate seat.  Most Americans were disgusted by Daschle's utter spinelessness and wanted him gone.
