… Now that Dingy Harry is Going [#next Dem leader]..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 14th,2016

.. well , who is up next ?? …

.. my guesses are between Sens. dick Durbin [D-IL] , the Senate DemoCrap Whip , and Chuck Schumer [D-NY] …

.. Durbin is by far the more aggressive partisan . To be a good whip , one has to be one . Durbin acted as acting leader at the beginning of the year when Dingy Harry was out on the bench because of injuries suffered in a New Year ‘ s Day execise equipment injury . Once Dingy re – emerged , it appeared that the injuries were far more serious than anyone had realized …

.. Schumer is the more liberal of the two , however . Schumer is , though , somewhat less partisan . One is his ties to Israel and his fierce advocacy on behalf of the Jewish state . POTUS ‘ treatment of Netanyahu obviously cannot and has not helped . The other is Schumer ‘ s extensive rolodex among the commercial and investment banks in the big Apple . Those folks end up having an influence that makes Schumer far more willing to listen to the GOP in general and conservatives in particular …

.. Ironically , even though Durbin is the whip , Schumer is the better lobbier and vote – counter …

.. originally , I thought Durbin would get the job . It appears now that the Dem leader ‘ s job is Schumer ‘ s to lose …

… I think the DemoCraps forgot how to Count [the Budget Deal] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 15th,2013

.. you need 60 votes in the Senate to invoke what is known as ” cloture ” to move legislation forward . It generally needs this amount in order to forstall any possible threat of a filibuster . So far , there has not been one , as of yet .

.. The problem is that the DummyCraps forgot how to count . You need 50 votes (+ VP Biden , if needed to break a tie) to pass a bill . The Democratic leadership assumed that they would pick up a couple of GOP votes to pass the bill , also assuming that they would lose some of their own people . They just did not think that they would lose very many people . They were wrong  .

.. Big Oops . Both of them . Nice going on the assumptions , tricky Dick Durbin (the Senate Majority Whip , for now) . He is supposed to know how to count to either 60 or 50 . Durbin generally does not admit that he is short of the mark , unless he really is . Doing it in public on a Sunday show [wrap up] is probably his way of creating some form of pressure on the GOP to produce some votes . Evidently , they are short of the mark .

.. Nice going , dummies …
