Chris Hayes and his three guests just had a whine on his MSNBC show over those nasty Republicans blocking Obama's nominees for Federal judgeships. The repubs did this. The Repubs did that.
IT'S NOT ABOUT THE REPUBLICANS ANYMORE. WE ARE BEYOND THAT NOW.
It's about the spineless, pathetic, Democratic Senators who refuse to change the rules and move this country forward. The guilt is theirs.
One of Hayes' guest - and ex-aid to Invertebrate-in-Chief of the Senatie, Harry Reid - made the case that if the Repubs get into power it would mean the Dems as a minority would lose whatever leverage they might have to stop the Evil Ones from having their way. Does anyone with two neurons to rub together actually think the Repubs would hesitate for one second to change the rules if the Dems were getting in their way by filibustering? Could anyone be so stupid or delusional to think that? Apparently so.
I am so sick of hearing how bad the Repubs are. It's a fucking given already. Who needs more convincing, especially on MSNBC, for crying out loud. (Maybe if the Dems screamed about it on mainstream media it might change a mind or two, but they don't.)
The obstruction in the Senate is the Democrats' problem and their fault. The Repubs are what they are just like predators are what they are. Predators kill. Republicans obstruct. Unfortunately, Republican obstruction also can kill. And it's the Democrats' fault that nothing is done about.
Rave on, not over.
