First, think about what Harry Reid and the Democrats just did to shove ObamaCare up our collective wazoos, along with what Mitch McConnell and the Republicans DIDN’T do.
Then hearken back a few years when the shoe was on the other foot.
Harry Reid was in the minority and used every trick in the book to block confirmation of a number of conservatives to the federal bench. Republicans could have legitimately used the “nuclear option” to break Reid’s filibuster, but then Majority Leader Bill Frist wouldn’t pull the trigger.
Instead, John McCain and the Gang of 14 sold out and a number of high-quality conservative judges never even got a fair hearing, let alone an up-or-down vote.
And Republicans wonder why so many conservatives have left the GOP and gone “independent”?
Hey, guys. We don’t mind you losing the fight. We mind you not fighting the fight. Will you ever learn? Will you ever grow spines? Will pigs ever fly?
