Politics is just high school, but with bigger egos.
Those Democrats, you’ve just got to hand it to ’em. Being two-faced is a hard job. Just ask any catty bad-girl cheerleader. Not only does it take constant attention to remembering all the lies you’ve told, but keeping up with what you said to whom. Just like the mean-girl back-stabber next door, but with a government expense account, government provided health care and military air transport at your beck and call.
Rewind a bit and remember how upset the very same Democrats with Republicans over “the nuclear option.”
In 2005, the Senators were piling shame on Republicans for using Reconciliation, also known as the Nuclear Option. Note that Republicans DID NOT use Reconciliation. The video follows some history on Reconciliation and the Nuclear Option.
Maggie does an excellent job of explaining it all. Watch the video here (sorry it won’t embed.) And be sure to notice that first guy in the video along with Joe Biden’s telling quip,
“I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing.”
True to form, while the nation was distracted by fluff and bother, the CIA was weakened. Which weakens us all.
And just as the bell rings, we see Newt is just the same big flirt he’s always been. Make up your mind already.
