Harry Reid:
´We Are Not Going
to Do Anything´

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:Redneck In NY, 12/20/2012 2:13:22 PM

Senate majority leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, made his "fiscal cliff" position clear in a press conference today. "We are not going to do anything," said Reid. Reid added, "We are not taking up anything they are working on over there." The top Democrat in the Senate was explaining his inaction on the House plan, the proposal put forward by Republican John Boehner, the speaker of the House of Representatives. Boehner´s plan is being referred to as ´Plan B.´

Comments:
As expected, Harry says no vote, and watch as the Repubs get the blame...

There should be a way to arrest this incompetent idiot for fraud, taking government money as paycheck while doing nothing for it. No Budget for four years, not bringing up legislation produced by the House and let the reconciliation process work. I ask you, who is the party of NO. Again, Nevada must be so pleased and proud of their "son." A monkey would have been a better rep for Nevada.

God cop, bad cop. Reid plays the bad cop while Obambi rides to the rescue. And the Kneepad Media will eat it up. Oh look, the Messiah saved us again! This is way too predictable to anyone with more than a 3 synapse brain.

An example of what Democrats mean by compromise. The idea is that Republicans compromise on their principles and programs, while Democrats courageously stick to theirs.

It actually makes sense once one accepts the a priori assumption of Democrats that they are always right and have only the best interests of the nation in mind.

Come, let us reason together. Let us do it MY way.

Harry already dropped over the cliff or he would allow the vote.Since he won´t that´s proof Obe doesn´t have the mandate and could face a veto override.
It´s the dems who should bring about harry´s demise from the Senate majority leader or they will never go forward to glorify their Dear Leader.

Well this pretty much proves Krauthammer right. The Democrats are more interested in crushing the Republicans than the welfare of the nation. They want to go over the cliff so that they can blame the Republicans. Of course, the Republicans like Charlie Brown when Lucie always snatches the football away at the last second, are happily obliging.

If only Obama and the Democrats would play hardball with our true enemies the way they play hardball with the Republicans.

A Missouri bar owner hit with a cease and desist order from Starbucks responded sarcastically and even proposed a mock settlement. The sarcasm-filled letter was sent from Exit 6 Pub and Brewery owner Jeff Briton to lawyers for the coffee giant demanding he change the name of one of his in-house brews from ‘Frappicino’ so it was not confused with a the chain´s popular ‘Frappucino´ drink. Mr Britton referred to the beer as ‘F Word’ throughout the letter, mockingly apologized for ‘any damage’ caused and cut a check for the $6 in profit earned from the three beers sold under

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
