reid's not quite the milquetoast he seems. he can play hardball when he needs to.
 
2012-09-20 06:06:06 PM
Reid's mild-mannered persona seems like a front to me. His claws are sharp (when angered).

I like him when he's angry.
 
2012-09-20 06:16:16 PM
Good for him. Now we'll see if Brown has the balls to show up and get shut down by Warren.
 
2012-09-20 06:32:59 PM
Well, this is nice. Warren seems pretty quick on her feet and should be well prepared. I hope Mr. Brown didn't try to bail because he didn't do his homework, he'll get a nasty ass kicking.

It doesn't matter what actually happens, Fox News will call it a Brown victory - just like the Palin/Biden debates.

If he ditches the debate for other than Senate purposes it is going to do serious and lasting harm to his campaign.

"Don't test me. Is Harry Reid gonna have to choke a Brown!?"
 
2012-09-20 10:44:09 PM
What I caught of the debate (the end) was pathetic. Each had talking points they just kept repeating and repeating. I could be wrong, but I don't think there was a winner.

Warren seemed too defensive and Brown seemed too dickish.

I hope I'm wrong.

Where was this Harry Reid from 2008 through early 2012?

I can only assume he's saying fark it this is my last go around in the Senate, I've got nothing to lose let's go for the jugular.

UNLEASH THE MEGA-REID!!

Eh, so what happened? Did Brown show up for the debate, or what?

aaronx: Reid's mild-mannered persona seems like a front to me. His claws are sharp (when angered).


No, they're not. It's worse. The man's a mormon biship. He is truly and utterly internalised on the ideas of kindness and forgiveness and niceness that the Mormon church has so thoroughly dispensed. Reid knows there's a time and a place for righteous rebuke, and so the time he uses it, the time he wields it, is when he's been pushed, and the rest of the time, all he uses is that most toxic of religious weapons - intense passive aggression. He didn't need to raise his voice - he didn't need to do tricks on this one. Just... make a simple statement that wasn't about to provide outrage or sound or fury.

It's like boxing fog.

Ha. It's funny. I can't really get into the thought of banging Elizabeth Warren. Every time I think about it I imagine her looking away, as if to some camera, with that expression that asks 'Is this guy serious? Is anyone really this stupid?' as I try to please her.
 
2012-09-20 11:49:05 PM
I haven't gone looking for video of the debate yet. But I think that is what will get me through tomorrow's all-meetings-all-day day, knowing that every time they call a break there's more video waiting.

The Democrats, via Obama, are learning that if they want a future they have to fight against every single thing the Republicans do.

And the Republicans, being pussies, can't deal with it.

Since when did any Congresscritters consider actually being around to vote a priority? For some, it's like cutting class in high school.

And considering how they act, they still think they are in high school.

yeah, because he has the patience and demeanor to do so while romney starts losing his shiat.
and he will just do a half smile and nod, then plot the next public disembowelment of the evening.

Obama is going to be calm, cool, and professional as always. Romney is going to be jumping back and forth between lies.

At this point I'm wondering when he will ditch Ryan and go for some insane right-wing VP in a final attempt to curry favor with the Base.

Fixed. I am not delusional enough to think the Dems have even a 1% chance of winning the House but I think the Senate is pretty much a done deal right now. That is incredible because the Dems started with such a structural disadvantage (having to defend so many seats).

Why would he put Paul Ryan as VP in the first place? Why would he back outrageous statements alienating half America's population? Why would he refuse to release his tax statements? There is no logic in Romney's head. At this point, he's doing what 'feels' right, and it's working as well as a number of other Republican policies that have destroyed this nation.

Romney is desperate as hell.

I don't know why he picked Ryan (thus the giddiness of liberals when he did pick him). I figured the whole campaign would be about Ryan since then but nope, Romney is such a shiatty candidate he has to put the spotlight on his own dumb ass.

itll be a fun sobering up if it happens. i still pretty much expect a level of infighting that will split the party after this blowout, as i have been hoping since the mccain palin disaster, but that hasnt happened yet.
but mainstreaming the crazy has had its impact on indies and it wont get better until they get their heads out of their asses with the tea party crazies.

Nice that Reid is working hard on that budget. So hard he can take extra half days. Life was so much easier when candidates like Obama could vote present to avoid the tough choices.
