I hope cjb, lowstudent, etc. who all railed about the pork in the Sandy Relief Bill take a look at who put that pork there:


"Pork Holding Up Senate Sandy Relief Bill Funneled Into The Troughs Of GOP Deficit Hawks? You Betcha."

WHo runs the Senate?

WHo has stymied anything they do not approve of coming out of the Senate?

The Republicans are veritable Gods, they rule Harry Reid and have been the impediment all along

Unlike libs, I do not think that the Republicans are good guys, just less bad guys than the Dems

You don't believe it, look at ObamaCare -- one group put together something that totally sucked and the other group didn't even read it and passed it through

Please, do not be a total tool. NOTHING gets out of the Senate that is not approved by Reid.

You are going to forward this telling me that Reid was afraid of a Republican filibuster of a clean aid bill? Seriously? You are going to actually tell me you believe that? Come on, no one is that blisteringly dumb.

This was Reid's handiwork. The pork? I do not know what it bought or why it was in there, but the Republicans would not have filibustered a clean bill -- that would be suicide. That is just ridiculous.

Again, I do not pretend Republicans are good.

But you have to be a complete idiot to believe that Reid could not have gotten a clean bill through had he wanted. What were his motives and why ? Who cares Republicans are evil because Reid passed a dirty bill down to the House.

YEs I believe the Republicans took pork. It is what politicians do. Why did Reid offer it? To beat a filibusterer? Please don't act that stupidly.

Did the House do the right thing in rejecting it?

Find the good guys if any, what party are they from? The Dems who rejected the pork in the Senate?? The Dems who rejected the pork in the House?

Once again, you ask it I see? Yes, I see as clear as day what I always see.

Republicans bad, Democrats worse at every single instance. If you would open your eyes you might see that too
