if this is Reid's idea of compromising in the spirit of bi-partisanship, of being cooperative, then I can only surmise that his idea of a benevolent, non-partisan leader was Josef Stalin.
Pelosi and Reid are banking on the notion that the American public is too fickle, too ensconced in the SAS mentality to remember a scant six-months back to a time when they were the leaders of a Democrat Party better identified as the "Party of No," when their only game plan for "government" was obstruction, denial, obstruction and deflection. They are betting that the SAS so prevalent in American culture will allow them to re-write even their most recent history of deception and deceit, of their placing the well-being of their political party and their political longevity before good government and doing the work they were sent to Washington do.
If we prove them right, if we allow them to get away with dodging the blame for being obstructionist, do-nothing leaders of a politically power-hungry party willing to do anything including shirking the responsibility of government to gain power, then shame on us, shame on all of us.
When he had that stroke, it destroyed that last tiny brain cell, he claimed to have had. Reid needs to be throwed out of the white house, by force. He has proved over and over that he is very mentally ill.
