This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Taking His Ball and Going Home

The secondary title is "Whiner Reid".

I watched the Reid Pajama Party...the whole frivolous thing. KNOWING, like Spree says, that THEY. DON'T. HAVE. THE. VOTES. to pass their very UnAmerican amendments and their UnConstitutional amendments, as Saxby Chambliss so stated, they went ahead and did this total and complete embarrassment for the entire world to see...including our enemies...anyway. I was watching CSPAN2 as I live blogged it at Spree's and you can rest assured that so was the enemy...hello?

After it was all said and done, and cloture lost...again...ReidCo picked up his ball and went home saying, and I paraphrase, "Fine! You aren't playing nice (after getting MITCH SLAPPED AGAIN) so I am taking the bill off the floor." Phffttttttttttttttttttttttt! Moron.

The Hill:
Reid pulls defense authorization bill

Senate Democrats surprised Republican leaders Wednesday by pulling a major defense bill from the floor, prompting a fresh round of partisan attacks and casting doubt on whether the Senate will be able to reach consensus on Iraq.
It really shouldn't have been a surprise there. That is what most children do when they don't get their way. They take their ball and sulkingly walk away.

“This is a commentary on the lack of comity in the Senate,” said Armed Services Committee ranking Republican and presidential aspirant Sen. John McCain (Ariz). “It’s a commentary on where the priorities are of those who brought down this bill.”
What it boils down to here is that ReidCo didn't like getting slapped around for 30+ hours.

The move came after a rare overnight session in which Democrats sought to dramatize overwhelming Republican opposition to an amendment that would have required most troops to leave Iraq by next April. That amendment, offered by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and Jack Reed (D-R.I.), failed 52-47, falling short of the 60 votes needed to shut down debate and move toward final passage.
"Overwhelming Republican opposition"...in whose wet dream? This is yet ANOTHER example of the democrats believing their own lies and rhetoric. When will they learn that just because THEY say something, it doesn't mean that what THEY say is correct, does it? No. It doesn't.

Four Republicans voted for the cloture motion to end the debate, including Susan Collins (Maine), who is up for reelection and facing intense backlash in her home state. The senior Republican senator from Maine, Olympia Snowe, who cosponsored the amendment, also voted for cloture, as did anti-war Republican Chuck Hagel of Nebraska and Gordon Smith (R), a cosponsor who faces a tough reelection battle in Oregon.
RINOs all. Big woop. THAT is their "overwhelming Republican opposition"? Please.

Collins, however, does not support the amendment, and said she only voted for the cloture motion because of her opposition to a Republican filibuster blocking the measure from receiving an up-or-down vote.
Ya. Sure. Sounds like Kerry and Clinton..."I was against it before I thought about being for it after I figured out that the wind wasn't blowing in the direction I wanted so I was against it AND for it just before the wind changed so I had to vote for it........................."


In the narrowly divided Senate, Democrats have been pushing Republicans to relent on their demands that all Iraq-related measures require 60 votes for adoption. But Republicans say all controversial votes must pass the 60-vote test that has become the norm of the Senate.
As usual, when the loser democrats are LOSING, they want to change the rules. When the shoe is on the other foot,that is just too damn bad, as it were. Morons. WAH! [HIC-HIC] WAH!!

“It’s obvious to the American people that the war in Iraq has gone the wrong way, and all of a sudden now, seven months later, after the last defense authorization bill, they’re saying you need 60 votes,” said Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). “That’s a new math that was developed by the Republicans to protect the president. That’s what it’s all about.”
Uh. Reid? Wasn't it DEMOCRATS that came up with that rule many moons ago? Hello? What is OBVIOUS to the American People, Reid, (don't know which American People Mr 14% Approval Ratings is referring to here) is that the Leftinistra are more useless than a sack of frog lips. The MAJORITY of the American People are "tired of the war" due to the OLD ROE that was installed by LEFTINISTRA JAG morons. Hello? WE WANT TO WIN AND WE KNOW WE CAN IF YOUR GENRE OF FOOLS WOULD SFTU!!

Reid could not resolve the procedural snag over several other bipartisan Iraq amendments, and decided to set the bill aside and move to a bill to cut rates on student loans.
He took his ball and went home to whine and sulk and skulk around like the reptile he is.

Reid said he plans to bring the defense bill back up, but only after Republicans agree to a timeline for troop withdrawal. The measure could resurface in September, when Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, reports to Congress on the status of the war. Many Republicans have urged lawmakers to wait until that report before pushing to change course in the war.
The Republicans are NOT going to set a timetable, you idiot!

Dear Chief Moosetwit ReidCo and fellow dweebs: listen up; YOU. DON'T. HAVE. THE. VOTES.

Reid during his closing whining.

52-47 — Republicans block Levin-Reed amendment

After an all-night debate session, Republicans succeeded Wednesday in blocking an amendment that would have required President Bush to begin withdrawing troops from Iraq within 120 days.

Four Republicans, Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Chuck Hagel (Neb.), Gordon Smith (Ore.) and Olympia Snowe (Maine) voted with the Democrats to support the withdrawal. But supporters of the measure fell short of the 60 votes required to overcome a GOP filibuster.

Republicans had called the overnight debate political theater and a stunt that was aimed at appeasing the Democrats anti-war base more than anything else.

Democrats had asserted that it is clear that the troop surge in Iraq had failed to produce the desired results of getting the Iraqi government to move closer to reconciliation. They argued that the country should not have to wait until September, when General David Petraeus is to report on the progress in Iraq, to change course.

Independent Democrat Joe Lieberman (Conn.) was the sole defector from the Democratic caucus.
