  •  I have a question for Harry Reid (8+ / 0-)

    After caving yet again to McConnell over filibuster reform last month, what does he get but a newly-empowered McConnell threatening to filibuster the nomination of Richard Cordray as head of the CFPB, where he currently serves as a recess appointee (which could be thrown out due to a recent DC district court ruling), unless Dems weaken the CFPB. No doubt this will be the first of many such hostage-taking schemes McConnell intends to pull to get his way.

    My question to Reid is, and apologies for its crudeness, but:

    Leader Reid, how many time are you willing to have your manhood mocked in full public view by Mitch McConnell, before you finally man up and do something about it? Have you no self-respect?

      Can Harry get any lower?

    •  Kovie, you apparently are laboring under the (4+ / 0-)

      misapprehension that the "leadership" of the Democratic Party is somehow substantially different from the Republican Party.

      It's not a question of "manhood," "spine" or any other part.  Harry Reid and the rest of the DNC know exactly what they want and how to achieve it.  

      And there is little, if any, congruence between what the DNC wants (the retention of their own power and perquisites) and what the majority of the country wants.
