McConnell Offers Alley-oop to Reid Again and Again
Daniel Horowitz shows how McConnell has once again eased Reid’s control over the Senate by refusing to block the IMF package, which doubled our contribution and weakened our influence within the body.
We’ve witnessed this dynamic throughout the past few years. Ideally, Republicans should have more leverage than Democrats because they fully control the House, while Democrats lack a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. As such, McConnell’s job is to block bad legislation in the Senate, enabling the House to jam Democrats with the only viable alternative. Yet, with issue after issue, we have witnessed the opposite dynamic. McConnell hands Reid the requisite 60+ votes and allows him to jam the House.
It’s always the same with McConnell, he talks the talk but never ever walks the walk. He sidesteps his own repertoire of power as Senate Minority Leader, instead opting to allow the Democrats leverage they should not have. Then, as usual, he bemoans the nasty Democrats and infers that his Republicans would never do such a thing.
Maybe not, but they just let the Dems do it without a fight.

I Don’t Deny Global Warming ExistsI don't deny that global warming exists. It does not exist. There is not a pink elephant in my kitchen. I'm not denying it. It is not there. If I denied that there was a pink elephant in my kitchen, it would have to be there, but I would be lying to myself and everyone and walk around it to cook. But it is not there, therefore, I am not denying that it is.

- I can find neither solace or comfort in government. I cannot find hope nor light among those pretending to take my best interest to heart. I cannot worship or revere another human being because there are none alive that can instill my faith. Give me the One God; the One Who had created the heavens and earth and had purposefully breathed life into me. The One Who dwells in the secret place and watches over me and always keeps me company when all others abandoned me. But for Him I would have no purpose in this life; thank you Dear God.

- Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things. -Winston Churchill
