“Revenge” for what exactly, Mr. Obama? Not to mention your right hand gal has been overheard threatening “Payback time” for anyone who opposed you all during this election … should you win this election.
For all the complaints and excuses the democrats and the media have been spewing that Obama has not been successful because the republicans have refused to work with him, let us remember Obama insisted “The election is over”, in other words he could do whatever he wanted … and has done just that mostly through executive order and circumventing Congress and the Constitution. Never mind his first two years his party held both houses of Congress, and what they did shove through has been rejected by the American people, most especially in the 2010 mid-term election. But now comes one of those who led the charge that the republicans were do nothing and were refusing to work with Obama and are to blame for the nation’s troubles. Harry Reid is forecasting he will not work with Pres. Mitt Romney (which tells me Reid might at least be seeing Obama losing in four days)…
Five days before the election, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has ruled out trying to work with Mitt Romney should he win next week.
“Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his ‘severely conservative’ agenda is laughable,” Mr. Reid said in a statement on Friday, trying to puncture Mr. Romney’s closing election argument that he’ll be able to deliver on the bipartisanship President Obama promised in 2008 but has struggled to live up to.
Mr. Reid, a Nevada Democrat and a Mormon, like Mr. Romney, has become the Republican presidential nominee’s chief critic this campaign, at one point accusing him of failing to pay taxes — a charge that Mr. Romney has refuted.
With Democrats appearing poised to keep control of the Senate, a President Romney would have to be prepared to work with Mr. Reid, who would set the upper chamber’s schedule and determine what bills make it to the floor.
Mr. Reid flatly ruled out following Mr. Romney’s agenda, saying he and his colleagues have already voted down many of those proposals, including House Republicans’ budget, written by Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan.
“Mitt Romney has demonstrated that he lacks the courage to stand up to the tea party, kowtowing to their demands time and again. There is nothing in Mitt Romney’s record to suggest he would act any differently as president,” Mr. Reid said.
Republicans retorted that Mr. Reid appeared to be preparing himself for a Romney win, and prodded the Democrat, pointing to all the things Mr. Reid wasn’t able to get done even when he did have a fellow Democrat as president and Democrats in control of the House.
“While Senator Reid might want to continue Washington politics as usual, I’m confident that there are many Democrats who value balancing the budget, reducing burdensome regulations, investing in U.S. energy resources and will be willing to work with Governor Romney to help grow our stagnant economy,” said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.
Mr. Romney has argued over the last week that his experience in Massachusetts working with a Democratic-controlled legislature has left him prepared to work with Congress. He has also vowed to hold regular meetings with congressional leaders to let both sides talk through their issues.
“He asked his supporters to vote for revenge — for revenge. Instead I ask the American people to vote for love of country.”
The right tone …
