Posted on 11/22/2013 6:11:00 AM PST by VeniVidiVici
Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) ripped Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) on the floor Thursday for his hypocritical role in bringing about the nuclear option, quoting directly from a Washington Free Beacon article during his impassioned speech.
Reid said in a 2008 interview that, so long as he was the party leader, there would not be a nuclear option effectively stripping the Republicans of their ability to block President Obamas judicial and executive branch nominees. However, on a near party-line vote Thursday, the Senate voted to approve the measure, 52-48.
Reid previously called such attempts at a nuclear option by Republicans when they controlled the chamber a black chapter in the history of the Senate.

Well, why didn’t he form a new “gang??”
He’s fooling nobody. He loved to keep power from conservatives (Bush) and loves going along (or at least doing nothing to prevent) giving power to democrats (Obama).
McSucker....Reid uses and abuses him, but don’t worry, McSucker will bend over and sing, “Thank you sir, may I have another?!”
McCain’s been virtually caucusing with the other party for years, and he JUST NOW has figured out that they were using him? He cannot be that stupid. It is ENTIRELY TOO LATE for him to “come to Jesus”. He needs to retire pronto.
When we take the Senate, McCain will lead the charge to be “reasonable” and go back to the old rules.
Will his eyes finally be opened to this fact? Sadly, I doubt it.
NO, he is too much of a block head.
Where are his gang members now....they put him out on a limb and sawed it off. Too bad John, you should have quit while you were ahead after the Keating matter.
When we take the Senate, McCain will lead the charge to be reasonable and go back to the old rules.
Yes, we have seen this movie before. It has a bad ending for conservatives. As soon as the Dems take a nasty beating at polls the liberal GOPers will rush to their defense with cries of “bipartisanship”.
Crud, now I gotta put on rubber gloves and a mask in case I pick up that same copy.
I don't suppose Republicans want to quote Harry Reid.
How's that bipartisanship working working for ya know, you old fool!
Lol who the Hell cares what or who McCain slams?
Is that supposed to hurt Harry’s feelings or something?
At least he didn’t call him a Wanky doodle. He saves his most vicious attacks for Repubs.
Pray America is Waking
Pray Arizona is waking
What’s the matter Johnnie, your buddy from across the aisle finally stick the shiv in your back?
Maybe you can go cry on Ted Cruz’ shoulder and beg forgiveness.
I don’t respect his service anymore. He has burned us one too many times. Besides he was a misfit in the service anyway.
Mccain goes over and bitch slaps the little geek then I’ll be impressed.
