Stephen Kruiser

For the moment, anyway.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday starkly warned Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) not to eliminate the filibuster on presidential nominations, threatening to end the 60-vote threshold for everything, including bills, if he becomes the majority leader.

“There not a doubt in my mind that if the majority breaks the rules of the Senate to change the rules of the Senate with regard to nominations, the next majority will do it for everything,” McConnell said on the floor.

There are two problems here.

One-the Senate has to be taken back and that actually is a possibility next year but the GOP will have to get out of “OMG 2012!!!!!!!!” hand-wringing mode and start focusing on that soon.

Two-like his Republican counterpart in the other chamber, McConnell has a history of talking a bigger game than he plays.

Baby steps…

The republican "leadership" and the dems are united against true conservatives (Cruz-Lee-S.King-Gowdy-et al) because they know how popular the message of LIBERTY is and also how damaging it is to the status quo....all of their actions (votes) are on the recor and video/audio places all of them in an untenable position. They are blowhards playing "chicken" and if the conservatives stand their ground, they will win a massive victory.

Too late. He needed to get a spine decades ago.

Obama has pretty much completed the left's long march through the bureaucracy. Now, when a Republican, or better yet, a Conservative attains the presidency, it won't matter what he tries to do because the statist dominated civil service will thwart him at every step. At most he will be able to slow down the Collective until the next election, when it will ramp up again in earnest.

The only thing Orwell got wrong was the year.

Proof that the Senate GOP "leadership" is only interested in protecting their minority privileges, not in becoming the majority. A spine transplant in that particular patient is a waste of a good donor.
