The Odious Harry Reid: Republicans Made Me Drag a Sick Old Man Out of His Deathbed for One of Their Silly Partisan Filibuster Votes

Odious.

Claiming “the power of an extreme minority now threatens the very integrity of this institution,” Reid then talked about McCarthy’s committee vote and the role of late Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.).

...

“Frank Lautenberg was dying — I called Bonnie and I said, ‘We have to have him here.’ And he, literally on his death bed, came down here — unhooked the stuff that was keeping him alive — came down here from New Jersey and walked in to make a caucus out — everybody was there for the Democrats on the [Energy and Public Works] Committee,” Reid related.

“We shouldn’t be doing stuff like that. That isn’t what it’s all about. You can’t reward bad behavior over and over and over again.”

Reid claimed he’s on a quest “to save the Senate from becoming obsolete, to remain relevant and effective as an institution.”

This past March, the Democratic-held Senate produced its first budget -- required by law each year -- for the first time in four years.

Reid suddenly remembers this tearful incident as he threatens the so-called "nuclear option," in which Democrats will change the rules of the Senate so that presidential nominees cannot be fiibustered, but can be confirmed with a mere majority vote.

They seem to want this especially because of the NLRB -- Obama illegally, unconstitutionally made fake "recess appointments" to that board, and then the board (without constitutional authority) made a raft of holdings. The Supreme Court has ruled this unconstitutional-- making the previous holdings without authority and therefore nullities.

I think Reid and Obama are especially keen to have these three unconstitutional appointments confirmed for realsies this time, to avoid the problem of their unconstitutional holdings. Once confirmed, they can re-hold everything they previously held and therefore give it all a sheen of constitutionality.

The Republicans do not want to confirm these appointees.
