I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing

I’m guessing that when Joe Biden said that in 2005, that he actually forgot to pray the prayer or he didn’t really mean it. I’m guessing, though Biden wore his ashes on Wednesday, he’s really not a praying man and he’s a greedy politician like all of Congress.

But now when the Republicans are objecting to the nuclear option, we get Harry Reid telling the Republicans to stop crying. Yet back in 2005 the Democrats whined even more.

But back in 2005, it was Joe  (the gift that keeps on giving) Biden who asked the Republicans to not use the  nuclear option — to compromise.

Ladies and gentlemen, the nuclear option extinguishes the power of Independents and moderates in this Senate. That is it. They are done. Moderates are important only if you need to get 60 votes to satisfy cloture. They are much less important if you need only 50 votes.

… I do not want to hear about “fair play” from my friends. Under our rules, you are required to get 2/3 of the votes to change the rules.

… It is the one thing this country stands for: Not tilting the playing field on the side of those who control and own the field. I say to my friends on the Republican side: You may own the field right now, but you won’t own it forever. I pray God when the Democrats take back control, we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing

Apparently the Democrats didn’t have the same sentiment. Naked power grab is the definition of the Democratic Party now.
