When the Democrat party, just a few years ago, was the minority party, and talk of executing this very option was brought up, Harry Reid was absolutely vehement in his opposition. Calling it as undemocratic and unAmerican an idea as has ever existed. Now, just a few years later, when Harry Reid and Barack Obama’s Marxist agenda is in danger of completely melting down, Harry Reid invokes what he himself called the unacceptable nuclear option.
After years of threats and warnings, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and his Democratic majority on Thursday executed the “nuclear option” to eliminate the filibuster for executive branch and judicial nominees, except for the Supreme Court.
Fifty-two Democrats voted against upholding the filibuster rules after Republicans again blocked cloture on the nomination of Patricia Millett to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Democratic Sens. Carl Levin (D-MI), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Mark Pryor (D-AR) voted with Republicans to sustain the filibuster rules.
“Republicans have routinely used the filibuster to prevent President Obama from appointing his executive team or confirming judges,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “We’re burning wasted hours and wasted days between filibusters. I could say instead we’re burning wasted days and wasted weeks between filibusters. … It’s time to change. It’s time to change the Senate before this institution becomes obsolete.”
Let’s make this 100 percent perfectly clear to everyone reading this. Harry Reid did this so that he could pack the courts with his fellow Marxist travelers so that when the Democrats lose control of the Senate next year, their Marxist agenda legislation will be protected by Marxist activist judges who will do everything they can to prevent those various Marxist agenda legislative items from being over turned.
This ladies and gentlemen is an attempted HARD Marxist coup.
