Hopeless Harry Reid Has To Go

By: Thursday January 8, 2009 4:30 pm

By: Wednesday July 18, 2007 2:45 pm

#1: The Republicans aren’t filibustering: it’s the Democrats.

#2: Arlen Specter didn’t vote against the Webb Amendment because he doesn’t support downtime for troops, it was because he objects to SPECIFIC AMOUNTS of downtime for troops. Oh, so that’s DIFFERENT. I get it now.
