Lame-Duck Filibuster!

Posted on | December 1, 2010 | 5 Comments

Proving my saying that “gridlock is our only hope,” Mitch McConnell throws a 42-vote Republican filibuster into the path of Democrats’ lame-duck agenda (see McConnell and Jon Kyl’s letter to Harry Reid in PDF format) unless Democrats permit a vote to extend the Bush tax cuts. Jennifer Rubin from her new WaPo blog:

Liberals scream “obstruction!,” but think about it. The government runs out of money in two days and a huge tax hike looms over the economy. But what are the Dems doing? “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” a settlement with black farmers and the DREAM Act. In other words, they are throwing the final crumbs to key Democratic special interest groups while the rest of the country’s business takes a back seat.

Democrats are the Veruca Salt of American politics, always throwing tantrums and shouting: “We want what we want and we want it now!”

Even after a monumental ass-whupping, they still expect everyone to kowtow to their every whim.
