has been reached. 14 Senators in all will attempt to undermine the Senate majority.
Any Republican or Southern Democrat who reached this compromise should be targeted for opposition when they come up for reelection. I am sick and tired of these flavor-of-the-month politicians that constantly place their own career ambitions for what's right.
UPDATE: The Associated Press
is reporting that in exchange for promising not to end judicial filibusters, the Democrats promised not to support any filibuster unless for an "extraordinary circumstance". The AP also states "there is no guarantee" to allow the up and down" votes. That's a crock of bull.
However, Reid said on CSpan 2 that Henry Saad will still be filibustered.
Frist is speaking on the floor of the Senate. The Republicans have been railroaded. Only Owen, Pryor, and Brown get votes for sure, Myers and Saad are guaranteed to be filibustered. The others are still "up in the air". I wouldn't hold my breath on those.
I WANT TO KNOW WHO THE 14 SENATORS ARE!
Let's see em.
Michelle Malkin: "With this pathetic cave-in, the Republicans have sealed their fate as a Majority in Name Only."
That's what their new name should be: The MINO's.
