“Statesmanship,” “civility,” “compromise” and “bipartisanship” are ALL defined as agreeing with the Left — period.

In comments of another thread:  “Joe” just stated this:

And with that last comment, James confirms what we on the Right have known for some time:

“James” replied with this:

“And with that last comment, James confirms what we on the Right have known…”

And with his last comment, Joe confirms how little that many on the Right actually know–but how much they rely on kneejerk hyperbole.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Leading Democrat of the U.S. Senate, as reported by The Washington Times, here.

Reid moves to limit GOP filibusters

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he will try to push through a change to Senate rules that would limit the GOP’s ability to filibuster bills.

Speaking in the wake of Tuesday’s election, which boosted Senate Democrats’ numbers slightly, Mr. Reid said he won’t end filibusters altogether but that the rules need to change so that the minority party cannot use the legislative blocking tool as often.

“I think that the rules have been abused and that we’re going to work to change them,” he told reporters. “We’re not going to do away with the filibuster but we’re going to make the Senate a more meaningful place.”

Republicans, who have 47 of the chamber’s 100 seats in the current Congress, have repeatedly used that strong minority to block parts of President Obama’s agenda on everything from added stimulus spending to his judicial picks. A filibuster takes 60 senators to overcome it.

Leaders of both parties have been reluctant to change the rules because they value it as a tool when they are in the minority.

But Mr. Reid said things changed over the last few years when he repeatedly faced off against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, who had said his chief political goal was defeating Mr. ObamaMr. Reid said that led the GOP to abuse the filibuster.

He did not say what changes he would support, though colleagues of his have proposed several.

Senate Republicans, though, said the real problem is that Mr. Reid too often tries to limit the amendments they can offer to bills on the Senate floor. Left without the chance to debate their own priorities, the GOP sees little option but to filibuster.
