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

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
