@Roland And it is disgusting hearing Bill O'Reilly pretend his "work" is of any value. Let`s see, he has the #1-rated cable news program in the country; he generates $millions in ad revenue for his employer; his advertisers are getting their message to millions of potential customers every night; he provides high-payig jobs for dozens of people; he currently has four best-selling books on the NYT list; and he raises $millions for more than 2 dozen different charities.
So, tell us, please, what "work" have YOU done that`s so much more valuable than that?
"If the Dems had the 60 votes to pass "cloture" then they had the same 60 votes to pass the Bill, unless I'm horribly mistaken?"
They didn`t have 60 votes, or they had it for a small amount of time. I`m on my phone so i`m not looking it up. Correct me if i`m wrong.
"In the "old days" (pre-Obama) the two sides would *gasp!* talk and come to a compromise!"
Remember when I first jumped in and said I was pointing to two factors mconnel`s quote and cloture votes? The senate minority leader said his main goal was defeat the president. Then cloture votes skyrocketed. So you take that as being Obama`s fault? The dems don`t need cloture votes to stop discussing they need them to stop filibusters because the senate republicans have stated quite clearly that they Errol block any legislation the president tries to make.
