Today, Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the DC court with left wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.
“I was glad to see Dems in the Senate use the nuclear option. Republicans had used obstruction tactics to the point it had evolved into torment of American people.”

“No need to be sad Sen. McCain. People still remember your running for president and the elevator you had installed for your car.

PHOENIX — A new poll suggests that Arizona voters insist they're mad as hell and are ready to throw the current crop of bums out of Congress.

I have always been a conservative and, accordingly, have little common ground with either Republicans or Democrats.

I am puzzled, and quite frankly amused, at all the rhetoric being spewed out from the left about who’s to blame for the government shutdown.

The latest piece of extortion by the Republican House over the budget is getting scathing reviews all across the political spectrum. While it easy to blame the tea party for this nonsense the fact is that a substantial portion of the American electorate stubbornly cling to the notion that the intransigence it takes to ruin the nation will somehow save it. Although if you ask them by what practical mechanism is the Republic saved the hemming and hawing begin and finally end in an empty and vacuous rhetoric about freedom and the Constitution interleaved with anti-Obama hate speech. Specifics are hard to come by.
Q: Is the government too big and powerful? Does a one-legged duck swim in circles?
