Never underestimate Reids ability to not only totaly bankrupt his state, but the entire country as well. That ass hat should be in a mental institution for the criminaly insane. Basically Reid is a Batman villain.

Don't blame him, blame his asshat constituents for continually reelecting him. Nevadans have to be the stupidest mofos on the planet. Hardest hit in this economy (which is almost ENTIRELY due to Reid and a few other key players shilling for the banks) yet they reelect the man time after time after time. Las Vegas and Nevada in general deserve every bit of real estate devaluation and unemployment hardship that is coming to them.

Agree, and the Senate can hector Boehner and the House Republicons all they want, but in the final analysis, Boehner is gonna have difficulty getting his own proposal(s) through the House, nevermind the Senate spew from the Decepticrats!

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Can we line-up mainstream-media types against the wall right after politicians once the Revolution starts? Please?

I would love it....but their will be no revolution as the American public does not have the stomach for it.  Exhibit A: Some AZ congress critter who has contributed to the ruination of America gets shot, and their is an enormous outpouring of grief.  Plus the public has American Dancer Idol to be concerned about sheesh

If this senile senator was running against anyone besides Sharon Engel in the last election, he would have lost. He only won by about 20,000 votes. Anyone. He is so hated in Nevada. Needs to go to a home where they have assisted living. Nevada is in a depression, but Harry keeps the casinos alive.

Welcome to the jungle.

No longer a nation ruled by laws.

No longer laws.

No longer a nation.

The murder of Hajis, and occupation of foreign countries is a structural outlay of the US Government according to Reid and Schumer.

Only under Reid's brilliant leadership can the US extradite itself from this course of warfare and carnage and brutality.

The Reid 'plan' is this:

We don't have any real particulars, but we double dog promise to redouble our efforts to cut spending of at least $1.2T. Seriously.

In what reality is that the adult approach? In what boardroom would that 'plan' gain any kind of traction, other than the motivation to kick the presenter squarely in the ass on their way out the door?

This is precisely the "adult approach" in the "reality" where the NY Time, the WaPo, ABC, NBC, SeeBS, CNBC, CNN, MSNBC and all the rest provide air cover for you.

And when you have The Party of Stupid as your political opponents.

Does that mean no compromise like Obama asked for? I just find it funny that compromise is a one way street. Harry Reid and the democrats are being Obama's veto.

I hope the Republicans hold the line and force the treasury to print. If the treasury tries and borrows, I hope the House will send federal marshals and arrest Timmy. Section 1, article 2. Only Congress can authorize borrowing. The funniest thing is that neither plan is worth the paper that it is written on. But it would be funny if Turbo Tax Timmy was arrested...

I'm happy to see he has no real solution.   The debt ceiling needs to stay right where it is.  Then we can really "face facts," prioritize our debt service payments, and cut from the rest of the budget as needed.
