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

Life is full of colorful characters and sometimes it´s not until someone has died their true qualities are recognized. William ´Freddie´ McCullough , a Bloomingdale, Georgia man died last week at the age of 61, however his spirit is living on in an obituary published in the Savannah Morning News. One thing that becomes evident from reading the tribute is Mr McCullough was a life-loving ladies’ man. ´Freddie adored the ladies. And they adored him.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
