    of course he will block Romney Harry Reid in the Democrats are obstructionist. they have not even passed a budget, which is a violation of the Constitution in itself. Harry Reid is making the best case right now for why the Democrats should all be voted out of office. the Democrat Party is heavily influenced by international socialist and communist. they have links on the web sites. hopefully in a few days we will see a landslide victory like we did in 2010 and get rid of a bunch of these bums who call themselves Democrats

    The party of revenge is already making plans to keep the american people down.Romney talks about working with both sides and Reid is plannig to block the return of employment for people if it is a republican initiative. The democratic party has become little more than gangsters. Chicago is alive and well.

    With President Romney, Harry Reid is assuming that he will be senate majority leader. This is wishful thinking on his part. Come Senate inaugural day January 3, 2013, Reid, like Nancy Pelosi before him, will be reduced to minority leader status.

    And on Presidential inaugural day January 20, 2013, Reid and Pelosi will have to deal with a Republican President and a majority in the House as well as the Senate.

    They can kick and scream all they want but like any bully, once you stand up to them, they aren't so tough, especially Reid who appears to be a wimp but acts tough when someone has his back.

    Romney has Ronald Reagan like qualities and when the congressional Democrats drag their heels Romney will appeal to the American people and together we will rebuild America.

    With this outcome I predict some Democrats will retire from Congress.

    @TheLoneRanger Sen Reid only becomes minority leader if the GOP retakes the Senate' and that, thanks to Akin, Mourdock, and Brown, is very unlikely. Additionally, with those insane Senate rules requiring 60 votes for approval and allowing a Senator to place anonymous "holds" on bills, it doesn't take a majority to block legislation, as Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul have repeatedly demonstrated.
  • #80
    @marine1 -- While I don't condone Reid in his intention, I can understand. Mitch McConnell, in a 2010 interview, stated in no uncertain terms that the GOP's ONLY goal was to prevent Obama from having any success at all and keep him from being elected to a second term. It was their only agenda, regardless of what we, the people, needed them to do. Also, on the evening of Obama's inaugural in 2009, Paul Ryan held chair over a meeting of House Republicans, the purpose of which was to strategize on ways of blocking any Obama-backed legislation that came to the House. You want thugs and gangsters, look to the GOP.

    But wouldn't Harry Reid want a Romney Administration to be successful? Is Reid already planning 4 years of obstructionism? 4 years of gridlock?

    Why does Harry want America to fail?
  • #19
    Great post. This is the exact argument the Dems had while holding the Oval Office, House and Senate. During that time they had all the cards and couldn't quit arguing amongst themselves long enough to pass a budget.

    Amusing to me that once the Republicans came into power in the congress they started blaming them for obstructionism.

    Now the vile Mr. Reid has, in no uncertain terms, promised to obstruct Mr. Romney every step of the way.

    That's great for America!
  • #26
    I guess what goes around comes around. I remember when Obama was elected, some Republicans vowed to block everything he did and make him a one term President.
    Both parties are equally guilty IF Romney wins and Reid follows through. Moderates have become almost extinct. No wonder nothing gets done. Global warming originates with all the Congressional hot air!
  • #29
    @CanisCanemEdit-- It's even more interesting considering how the Left responded to a similar comment by Rush Limbaugh. Imagine that... The Senate Majority Leader... Leader of the Democratic Party in the Senate... hoping that America fails all because he hates Romney and republicans... That's the line of reasoning right? ;-)

    On a completely unrelated topic... having nothing to do with bias of any sort... has anyone noticed the absence of any stories on this site about a certain hurricane other than Nanny Bloomberg recognizing the bad political optics of sacrificing lives in order to keep up a facade of a perfect hurricane response by a perfect FEMA and therefore we should give Obama four more years.

    "“It’s so bad here, a lot worse than how its being portrayed by the media. They are finding bodies left and right..."

    "“Red Cross is here with hot chocolate and cookies. We need blankets, we need pillows, we need clothing. We can get hot chocolate and cookies, we need help!” resident Jodi Hannula said."

    “This is America, not a third world nation. We need food, we need clothing,” Staten Island Borough President Jim Molinaro said today.“My advice to the people of Staten Island is: Don’t donate the American Red Cross. Put their money elsewhere.”

    @Keyjo Now,now, now, how many times have we explained that what you wrote is just not true? ONE man, Mitch McConnell, after the 2010 election BTW, said that they would make him a one term president UNLESS he worked with Republicans and that if he crossed the aisle they would be happy to work WITH the president. This has been proven by no less than the Washington Post. The Presidents rhetoric and your post has been proved to be a lie. Go to the website provide, again, and read it.

    "There is no doubt that McConnell said he wanted to make Obama a one-term president. But he did not say it at the start of Obama’s term; instead, he made his comments at the midpoint, after Obama had enacted many of his preferred policies.

    Perhaps, in Obama’s memory, McConnell was always uncooperative. But that does not give him and other Democrats the license to rearrange the chronology to suit the party’s talking points.
    Two Pinocchios "

    Reid is just one man, too. Both parties suck and both are equally responsible for the stagnance in D.C. Congress is a marriage made in hell !

    When Obama won in 2008, the Republicans vowed to make him fail. Now the Democrats are vowing to make Romney fail if he wins. I'd like to fire them all and get some people who want to make things work.
  • #13
    well I agree in principle with your last statement, I think the beginning was a little misleading.
    some people knew when o Bama was elected that his radical agenda was not right for America. and you can see from the record every opportunity to work with Republicans to get things done have been blocked by the Democrats.

    they had complete control for 2 years and all they did was push more socialist more big government programs forcefully down the throats of Americans who overwhelmingly rejected those plans..
    that style of governance is better suited for a Central American tyrant, not a president of the United States.
  • #21
    @bsking So what you're saying is that "the Republicans had a reason to to obstruct but the Dems don't. The Dems think they have just as much reason as you do. This is the problem in America today. Both sides put all the blame "on the other side". I agree with Dan. They're all corrupt and they're all criminals.
  • #49
    @bsking I don't believe that the Democrats had complete control at anytime. They may have had a majority, but the Congress couldn't even get a budget passed without the government being threated with a complete shut down.

  • #6
    What Harry meant......if Romney does somehow steal the election.......Bush tax cuts will still expire, the estate tax will stay firmly in place, abortion law won't change, and the wheels of government will come to a screeching halt for Romney's every Supreme Court nominee. Though that is very reassuring......I still prefer Obama.

    You must enjoy paying $4.00 a gallon for gasoline. It does not effect me, I can afford it. If Barry is re-elected the price will continue to rise, projected at $10.00 a gallon. Again, I can afford that but how many democrats can? I might not like high gas prices but I can afford it, can you?

    I am amazed at the completely unified position of the left on this subject. All based, BTW, on misinformation or an outright lie.

    #1. No, no one in Congress vowed to make Obama a "One Term President" right after he was elected.

    #2. ONE man in Congress, made the remark AFTER the 2010 election and it one reads the entire quote, one will see that the remark was that Obama would be a one term president if he didn't try to work with Republicans to get things done and that if he did the Republicans would work with the president.

    #3. This is the link to the Washington Post article where the lie was put to rest.
  • #23
    Thanks Reid, vote out the dems, now and in the future, simple enough. You work for the people, Harry, not Barry!

    Ohio for Romney/Ryan 2012!

    Republicans when Obama was elected "our goal is to make his presidency fail"
    Republican voter response-yeeeeaahh

    Democrats on a possible Romney presidency- we will continue to oppose policies we have opposed even if the president disagrees.
    Republican voter response-obstructionist!!!!!!!
  • #35
    Nope, didn't happen, that remark was made AFTER the 2010 election. See my comment to Keyjo above for the link and the truth.
  • #86
    @Tralee -- On the very evening of Obama's inaugural, Paul Ryan, the current VP candidate, chaired a meeting of House Republicans to plan how to block any legislation coming through the House that was backed by Obama. Just because the Democrats had a majority at that time doesn't mean there weren't ways for a large enough minority to cause gridlock. It wasn't just Senator McConnell in 2010, it was the GOP in general, determined to make Obama a one-term president at any cost, even if said cost was on our shoulders.

    You couldn't show them a time stamped video and they would still swear it isn't true. So why bother.

    Yes, and what is new about that? The Dems have had control for 6 years now, I believe, and nothing was done in the first two of those (blocking W)- and damned little (that didn't skirt on being illegal) has been accomplished with them AND a Democratic POTUS. Just what is the Democrat's agenda in D.C.- just there for the thrills?

  • #110
    Harry Reid has more hate in him than I have ever seen and IT WILL DESTROY HIM.
    He will be defeated because of his hate. I long to see him out of his job. He is an evil man and the mormans should put him out of their church.
