In responding to comments on recent Juice posts I illustrate a point by stating that when driving a car your rear view mirrors are smaller than your windshield for a reason. While it is important to see where you have been your focus should be on where you are headed.
Using the same illustration let me remind readers of a series of comments made by some very angry US Senators which dates back to May of 2005. At the time their angst related to the number 51. A simple Senate majority to avoid filibusters in that elected body. Think about that number and president Obama’s current efforts on the health care debate.
We thank Breitbart TV and Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report for providing the video from which the following one liners can be heard and viewed at the link provided below. This is a partial listing. We often hear that a picture is worth a 1,000 words. These video clips are priceless.
Senator Joe Biden. “I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the same kind of naked power grab you are doing.”
Senator Obama. “Absolute power of either side and that’s not what the Founder’s intended.”
Senator Clinton. “Mr. President. That’s a bridge too far. We can’t go there. You have to restrain yourself Mr. President.”
Senator Schumer. “If you get 51% of the vote you don’t get your way 100% of the time. It’s amazing. It’s almost a temper tantrum.”
