    'negotiator' in the world, Mitch the turtle is simply evil, he would destroy the country just to discredit 'that (n word)' in the White house, screw him and the bigotry he rides on.

    •  I posted a piece from Bloomberg News, "Harry Reid (0+ / 0-)

      and Mitch McConnell: Public Enemies, Private Friends," which sort of spells it out.

      It says explicitly:

      Republicans oppose weakening the tactic, the minority’s most powerful tool. While Reid has expressed support for altering some Senate procedures, he has said he wouldn’t back changing the core of the filibuster -- the requirement that 60 votes are needed to overcome it.
      Here's the link to the entire piece.
