Media Showdown and conventional history meets metaphor

CNN runs a special called “The End” as Fox starts a daily show called “first 100 days.” Does anything highlight the contrast more than that? The beginning and the end.

On one hand Liberals are in mourning. They look back at radical nostalgia ending while the rest of us, thinking people, are in mourning for what Obama has done to this country.

Conservatives, Republicans, and normal people look forward to Trump coming in to fix some of the many problems — created or magnified by Obama, called accomplishments.

This brings up another thought nicely illustrated by that photo of Obama visiting the Henry Ford Museum, sitting on the bus Rosa Parks rode on. (look it up here )

The picture shows Obama sitting alone on an empty bus from a bygone era, which was famous for what took place on it. Namely Rosa Parks making her stand for civil rights and changing or challenging culture. That was the picture. But it is also a powerful metaphor for Obama and his legacy. Let’s see how much mileage I can get out of it? None of this applies to Rosa Parks but to Obama, who is caught in the nostalgia of it all.

In the end, Obama seems to be alone, surrounded by his failed legacy, staring out a window seemingly oblivious to what all took place. He wanted a coveted spot in the public and he got it. He started off wanting to “fundamentally change” America and our perception of it, only to himself become the chief symbol for what is rotten in Washington. In effect, there was a backfire, like those old buses were prone to do.

Then the big one. Obama’s finale of two terms and his legacy gets derailed and replaced by the newer Trump Train — a popular uprising of disgust from the people. They have had enough, finally, and sent a messenger to demonstrate their conviction. They beat back the status quo rules and establishment to get there. A David vs. Goliath story.

Obama argued that this movement, or man now leading it, was unqualified and ill-suited for the job, and not to be trusted. Trump deserved no seat and his movement was to be blacklisted by putting every label on it the left could, including racist. That further fueled resentment and resistance to the self-serving establishment — government run amuck.

After it all, there sits Obama alone on an empty bus staring outward. Alone on his own bus. He will now have to single-handedly defend his legacy, with help from his allies. But he is the only one who could make the case for his radical legacy. All the others will be just cheerleaders. He now leads his parade of one to secure and protect his legacy.

A moment of history illustrated, metaphorically, by a simple photo of Obama sitting on Rosa Parks’ bus in a dated backdrop. Obama rode on the past racial history to propel himself. He extorted every circumstance to usher in his radicalism as America’s cure, rather than the disease. How’s that for milking a metaphor? (more could be said)

Boycotting America: the infertile resistance breeds

The week of hypocrisy and double standards, and here we go.

The hearings were one thing, emphasis on race and Russia – not necessarily in that order — but dialogue and media are another which got progressively worse, right on script.

We finished the week by having the self-anointed civil rights leader, John Lewis call Trump’s election and his presidency illegitimate. Anyone NOT see that coming? These people certainly are predictable, if nothing else.

“I don’t see this President-elect as a legitimate president,” Lewis told NBC News Friday. “I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.” – NBC

No, unfortunately, Lewis was not a lone voice. Predictable. He did it intentionally on Friday before MLK Day — which I guess is now ensconced as the day of hate.

Now you would think that Lewis making this statement would be like a bomb going off, and the shock of it from a sitting senior Congressman would outrage people. You would think immediately people would distance themselves from his remarks, en masse. The condemnation would be fierce. And you would think a media outcry would demand every single Democrat condemn his remarks or be condemned. Nope.

Actually, Michelle Obama kicked it off on Oprah saying “we’re feeling what not having hope feels like.” She was praised for saying we have no hope. They cheered her on.

One Democrat pundit said on Sunday, “this is the resistance; this is just what it looks like now.” Ah, “what it looks like now” is short for this is the way it’s going to be. No, it’s actually going to be worse. They know it and so do we. And then their shadow Obama government will be adding to the resistance.

What you would think should be a normal response, in their racist political correctness, now is reversed. Rather than blanket condemnation, the praises for John Lewis came from everywhere: media, Congress, the black community, the public. Hard to find anyone who does condemn his statements.

Remember Joe Wilson, the SOTUS “heckler”? He had the audacity to make a public disagreement with Obama. He got a good talking to from the Republican leadership. And Mitch McConnell, all he said was that job #1 was to make Obama a one-term president. Democrats turned that into a giant insult and classic racism. Justice Alito shook his head. People were called racists for asking questions about Obama’s birth certificate or records — since he really had no trail. Just questioning Obama was blatant racism.

So it was way more than Obama ever received, even before Trump takes office. Now resistance is celebrated. Calls for obstruction ring from every corner of the Left. Respect is out, Resistance is in.(lockstep of course) In fact, the Left even says, proudly, it is following the model that worked so well for Republicans. (choke, gag) Get that, they even blame us for their radical resistance. They blame Russia for the election results. And they blame Trump for the condition of America which preceded any thought of his to run. Now they are trying to even make us own Obamacare.

Well, the total fallout of John Lewis is wide agreement with him. In fact, 23 members of Congress are boycotting the inauguration. It’s the cool thing now to join the resistance. They will institutionalize it, celebrate it, take it into schools and claim it as righteous.

All this deception won’t work. The people have been awakened and are not going to take their eyes off this, We survived their decade of decadence and aren’t happy. Sorry, Dems, don’t even try to out anger us. It ain’t happening. The blame projection won’t work. But they have the towers of media carrying their water, and soon will have every one of their shadow operatives opposing Trump. Exactly the way they did in the general election. Almost as if the election never happened because, to them, it didn’t.

Protests are highly overrated. Respectful protests were fashionable toward Obama, disrespectful protests toward Trump are now in. When Tea Party protests were born, the IRS and media assailed “speaking truth to power” using their big-gov firehouses, under a black president. It was Democrats in the sixties who opposed Lewis and their ‘civil rights’ agenda. Now they blame Republicans but no one is supposed to know the truth.

Now their resistance stuff is all the rage. Resisting what? – doesn’t matter. On the IRS Tea Party scandal, blacks and Democrats stood on the side of big government fire hoses. They stood up and walked out. Eric Holder was in contempt and they stood up for him, who was standing up for Obama. But now they see illegitimacy as the cause de jure.

So the answer, my friend, ain’t blowing in the wind. No, their answer to nothing is to boycott Trump and whatever he does. Take that Mitch McConnell. He let them beat him up for eight years for a benign statement. Then people bent over backwards for Obama. Republicans stood there like deer in the headlights, as radicals ruled the White House and administration. That really worked?

The boycott of Trump takes full shape before the parade or swearing in. What will they do when he’s in office? I think we know. (whatever was not done to Obama) Can’t you smell what the boycott is cooking? It means de facto protesting America and what it stands for, the rule of law. So civil rights or justice are excuses, the real boycott is against America.

And happy MLK Day, for what that’s worth.

Unwelcome sign to Obama from golf course

Obama snubbed by golf course.

‘Not Welcome’: Members at DC country club take swing at Obama over Israel stance

Members at an exclusive Washington-area country club think President Obama is a real duffer when it comes to foreign policy – and the fairway furor could cost him one option for a post-presidency home course.

Though it’s unclear whether the outgoing president would even seek membership there, some at the Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, Md., are preemptively trying to keep Obama out of the predominantly Jewish club amid complaints about his stance on Israel, according to reports. The members have sent a barrage of emails to club President Barry Forman and General Manager Brian Pizzimenti saying Obama is “not welcome.”

The pushback stems from Obama’s decision last month not to have the U.S. veto a U.N. Security Council resolution criticizing Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank and from Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech two days later accusing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of undermining the possibility of a two-state solution.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/01/13/not-welcome-members-at-dc-country-club-take-swing-at-obama-over-israel-stance.html

Obama, how’s that BDS thing working out “fore” you , Barry?

See you on the back nine. Oh, that’s right, no I won’t. Get you some of that boycott.

Stranger than fiction, looks like a series

We have now entered that special place called the Twilight Zone.

I think we need a memory enhancement therapy for liberals Something needs to bring us back to reality.

The Whip for the minority in the House, Steny Hoyer, went to the floor ranting that everyone, every person in America will be negatively affected by a repeal of ACA/Obamacare. Everyone will be harmed! Read, absolutely no exceptions.

I guess he was not listening or paying attention to all those lies in the passing of ACA, when Obama declared if you like your plan you can keep it; if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. In fact, they promised it would not affect you if you had other care. Now we know it did. By design, everyone paid the price.

So Hoyer now declares every man, woman and child in this country will be impacted by the repealing of the Act. His emphasis on every person, no matter who, would be affected just broke the hypocrisy meter.He yelled “everyone” to the House floor.

If only they had thought of all those compounding, ‘every man,woman and child’-effects before.

No Russian love — the affair is over, flexibility has turned frigid.

The media now got a bad case of Russia-phobia. Who knew they could catch that, after all that flexibility awarded to Russia. For all the criticism MSM had for Trump over birtherism or other issues Trump took on as wild theories, they now see a Russian monster everywhere.

For all the talk of Obama about talking to our enemies, now the entire left says we should have nothing to do with Russia. I even wrote my concerns, for years, about dismissing Russia as irrelevant. Now they found a deep-seeded fear of anything to do with Russia.

CNN now gets the stupid award. A dossier surfaced about Trump. But where it came from and how it got there adds more questions to the mix. It is filled with sordid details about Trump. CNN credits itself with breaking the story, though refusing to publish the thing — which is not classified. So CNN runs a talkathon thing about the nature of the accusations without saying what they are.

Then Clapper comes out in an official statement to say the dossier was not a product of our intelligence community. Ya think? It seems McCain had gotten a copy of the info earlier and took it to the FBI. Then in the high profile briefings that were occurring, they bundled the information as an addendum giving it to POTUS, the VP and Trump and Pence. Now that seemed to add more legitimacy to it because they handled it. Hence Clappers’ not-ours disclaimer. Some members of Congress were also briefed on it.

CNN is left with egg on its face because they wanted credit for not releasing or publishing the report, but yet takes credit for breaking the story. Buzz Feed did publish it, which caused CNN to blame them. Then Kellyane Conway goes on CNN to be bashed for blaming CNN as part of the public release. CNN denied it. CNN’s Carl Bernstein called Conway a propaganda minister.

Wolf Blitzer, the following day, said CNN did “very precise reporting on our part”. CNN said they stand on their story. And two days later, they are still continuing their “story”.

Meantime, Trump has a press conference and CNN disrupts the whole thing trying to ask Trump a question on the unsubstantiated “story.” He called them fake news refusing to take their question regarding their story they broke while not publishing the report. How exactly do you break a story on a report without divulging the report. It wasn’t classified.

At least other media did criticize publishing it. Since it was published, CNN jumped to take credit for the story. Er until Kellanne Conway came on when they refused credit for the story. Got it? CNN actually calls itself legitimate top news organization.

So the Fourth Estate is now morphing into a fifth column.

Now news breaks that the IG will investigate the FBI and Comey’s statements on the Clinton server investigation. Dems applaud it. However, much like the failed recount rollout, where does it stop…. and what might simple inquiry reveal about Democrats? Careful, it could be inconvenient time. What else will we learn? (Blame Russians)

Of course Dems see this as a way to investigate the election, whatever the IG says. They are not done politicizing things yet. And they’ll want full breakout investigations into Russia conection. Robby Mook accused Trump of treason. No rhetoric shortage. But investigating all that is only part of the story. We should have an investigation into media’s role in the election too.

Libs, thanks, you made a complete mockery of our process any way you could.

Confirmation hearings…hashtag Russia. Nearly every nominee was plastered with questions about Russia. In the Sec of State hearings for Rex Tillerson, they upped the ante to any threat around the world. They tried to get Tillerson to label all their countries of concern. Call Putin a “war criminal.”

Obama sends troops to Poland in a defensive posture to set the stage for Trump’s inauguration, while making a show of force to Moscow. Add that to the dialogue about Russia from a president who promised to be more flexible with Russia. Obama wants to create a confrontation between Trump and Putin.

Obama’s reset has gone to Red Scare.

Back to Tillerson having everything thrown at him all at the same time. No hearing on foreign policy would be complete without a hissy fit from Marco Rubio, and he did not disappoint. He attacked Tillerson for not labeling his list of countries. Tillerson said he would base it on the facts and information and Rubio balked. Then Rubio left the hearing to have an impromptu press conference about it, which stopped CNN from covering the hearing to cover the Rubio presser. So you can expect the Sunday shows to include Rubio, in dissent of Tillerson, and McCain for his tale with the Russia information.

It’s a little surreal to see and hear Carl Bernstein back fiercely attacking Trump after swimming in the Left’s sewer. Do they have any cred on ethics? Even better Robert Reich is back and attacking Trump. (old Leftists never go away) So you want to run for president or elected office, give up your business and your assets. It doesn’t end there.

The family members need to give up their business and livelihood too. Do we ever see that on the Left? John Kerry is married to Teresa Heinz, one of the richest women in the world. With her foundations and influence, and these people want to look at Rex Tillerson’s ranch and financial records of his family. And we know what Hillary did, and got away with.

Not to be too liberal, they bring on Richard Painter, ethics guru under GW Bush, to rail almost daily against Trump on ethics. And they sure use him. According to Painter, he has to sell of everything he has, screw the kids, and lock all his money away. That’s paraphrasing it but that’s the simple view. If he wants to be president, he can’t own anything. So we have the full spectrum of problems from everywhere. It’s a minefield. Cut….

 

Yes, we have entered the Twilight Zone: that special place where all laws seem fungible and meaningless, especially if you are in disagreement with “unpopular” power. But a place where you make one undesired move and all the elite ethics police are all over you, if you support it. Four years ago, none of this mattered at all. Now ethics governs everything, except the corrupt. You’ve got a one way ticket. Enjoy the ride.

Update: I think I found a name for their new series, “Days of Our Pathetic Lives.”

Soros’ ship skipped the port of call

According to the WSJ, “George Soros lost nearly $1 billion as a result of the stock-market rally spurred by Donald Trump’s surprise presidential election.”

Obama Exits To Go Nowhere

So what do you call a Farewell Address when you don’t actually leave? Just asking.

No, it’s not a trick question.

Obama has said he is sticking around Washington and not going anywhere, and may be frequently speaking out. Yet he had the need to have a farewell address.

Do traitors make a farewell address now? Times, they are a changin’ I think. What if Benedict Arnold had got to make a farewell address. What would he would have said? Would it top Obama’s self-centered soliloquy? He even quoted a fictional character.

I’ve already heard now that Obama — the great orator he is was — is leaving, we won’t hear anything like this for a long time. I sure hope not, or ever hear BS piled that high.

His exit is just as radical as his two terms in office was. He’s not leaving, you morons out there drinking Obama juice. He’s ousted from the Oval Office — not gone.

Lay off the stuff… it will kill you if it doesn’t eat you from the inside first.

Not gone, not forgotten… just ____________ (there)

The man of No Hope n No Change reflects on his factor of “Me”

“The next phase and this is part of what I’m interested in doing, after I get out of the presidency, is to make sure that I’m working with that next generation so that they understand you can’t just rely on inspiration,” Obama said.

Washington Examiner

Taking “some responsibility” for the losses suffered by the Democratic Party during his eight years in the White House, President Obama suggested that his lack of presence on the campaign trail was a decisive factor.

I think it is high time. Obama clearly needs an intervention to stop him. Will he get one?

So “you can’t just rely on inspiration.” This guy makes me sick. Don’t tell that to all the drones who got you to the White House. Obama didn’t even have much inspiration either.

The real problem is Obama did show up… boy did he — in 2008-2016, everywhere.

Little people’s info doesn’t matter

This is to all the people who have had their personal information hacked, stolen, pilfered or used by foreign state hackers. My sympathies to you. (including anyone who worked for the federal government.) You’ve been used and abused in more than one way.

Now we know the real truth. Your privacy, security and personal information mean nothing to Obama’s administration or even Congress. Let’s be honest, you are not Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, or the DNC. Your shit doesn’t matter — only theirs does.

They proved this with the hacking narrative they and the media have elevated to the top national security issue. Obama called for an investigation of Russia on the election.

When did they call for an investigation, let alone consequences, for those who did the hacking of all that government and personal information? Where is that national debate and outrage? Where is all the media coverage about it? Where are the demands to do something? They didn’t want to acknowledge the story or comment on it when the hacks happened. Where is the CIA and FBI reports, and 17 intelligence agencies? — MIA

From the bowels of media coverage

First, the story is the beating and treatment of the white teenager by 4 black Chicago Trump-haters. Everyone probably heard the story by now. Exhibit A for disgusting.

They discuss the crime on CNN and what happens? All hell breaks loose? No. Someone labels it an evil act but no, again, Don Lemon has to take issue with that term. Hate crime? No, they don’t like that term either.

Tied up, tortured and beaten…. just some bad rearing. Really?

Don Lemon on horrific Chicago torture: ‘I don’t think it’s evil.’ You’ll love his alternate theory.

The Blaze

In the wake of the horrific torture of a white man with special needs by four black suspects — which was live-streamed on Facebook — a panelist on Don Lemon’s CNN show called the act “evil.”

“You just try to wrap your head around evil,” Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller told Lemon on Wednesday night. “That’s what this is. It’s evil. It’s brutality. It’s man’s inhumanity to man.”

But Lemon took issue with that assessment.

“I don’t think it’s evil. I don’t think it’s evil,” Lemon responded. “I think these are young people, and I think they have bad home training.”

The host continued:

And I say, “Who’s raising these young people?” I have no idea who’s raising these young people, because no one I know on earth who is 17 years old or 70 years old would ever think of treating another person like that. It is inhumane. And you wonder, at 18 years old, where’s your parent? Where’s your guardian?

http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/01/05/don-lemon-on-horrific-chicago-torture-i-dont-think-its-evil-youll-love-his-alternate-theory/

Don Lemon takes the award for journalism bias. He’s trying to keep his stellar record going. “Where’s your guardian?” They are 18 yr-olds and older. Where’s yours, Don?

That was not even the whole problem on CNN. He had another guest besides Lewis. A black woman who insisted this should not be considered a hate crime, as if we don’t know and can’t hear for ourselves what they did. She argued with Lewis.

She went on to state that it is different for black people, who suffered a long history of abuse etc in America. She complained it is wrong to overuse that term and charge.  Well, maybe there is another award for her. Does being black excuse what they did? Does it disqualify them from being charged with a hate crime? Lewis called it evil.

Then Lemon chimed in with the “I don’t think it is evil” line. The same people who see “structural racism” everywhere, and an inherent evil in it, cannot see or at least define evil even when watching it take place on a video, which was streamed live.

But they just can’t get there to this hate crime and evil thing.

Schumer recruiting Trump

Cheesy Chuck Schumer declared that the only way Democrats could work with Trump is if he abandons his Republican base and joins Democrats, instead.

Well, I guess he already forgot who won the election. See their idea of bipartisanship?

Take note McCain — it is going to get increasingly lonely on his pedestal. But then he probably already made that choice.

A Tale Of Two Terms

Two terms I heard in the last week jumped out at me: ‘intellectual atheist’ and ‘intellectually honest.’ Both struck me as very odd.

The first was used in a Christian apologetic, the second was referring to Obama as “intellectually honest.” I think you can imagine why I had a problem with the second. Obama will give his farewell address in Chicago while his allies prematurely billed him as being “intellectually honest.” Really? Calling Obama honest is dishonest.

I thought the first was very strange way to say someone is an academic intellectual while also an atheist. A person who is an atheist has made a choice not to believe in God. The reasons for their decision may vary, but they made that choice.

If it was an intellectually based decision, then it sort of questions intellectual acumen itself. We know that God is the source of wisdom and good, so why would it be intellectual to deny the existence of a Creator? Solomon wrote a lot about his own extensive quandary in Ecclesiastes. He finally determined, after much deliberation, he held a reasoned and obvious belief in a Creator. Using intellectual capacity for the reason of disbelief seems dishonest. Could that person believe in evil?

As to Obama being intellectually honest, I find that illogical and laughable. He has not been honest. That Obama, in his elite arrogance which taints everything he does, is intellectually honest is ludicrous. When radical political ideology determines one’s actions, is that honest? If one is as bitter as Obama when not getting his way, how honest is that? I guess he is true to his arrogance and narcissism, first.

He spewed out so many twisted lies about Trump in making a case for Hillary that he can not stand on honesty. He strategically lied to pass his agenda. Gruber admitted they could only get ACA past the people by lying. Their arguments were intellectually dishonest.

Of course, they don’t want to call him intellectually dishonest. But why try to call Obama “intellectually honest;” a man who sought out the most Marxist of professors in school, and used racism as the basis for any opposition to him? (it’s a lifelong pattern)

So the common denominator in both terms is “intellectual.” Is Obama now going to make the case that the reason for all his arrogance and shortfalls is his intellectual ability? (his intellectual ability to lie) When intellectual ability is used to deceive and undermine truth, is that an honest use of intellectuality? A person can still be an academic intellectual, but if it is used in that way it certainly cannot be honest.

I don’t know if anyone else sees a little similarity between those terms? Just a thought.

The Year of Whining Liberals

After much thought, I am going to declare 2017 the year of Whining Democrats.

And they are off to a great start setting the narrative. Post election, their incessant whining began and it won’t stop, over anything and everything .

Thus, the year will go right from one whining Democrat bitch into the next one.

There are not enough crying towels to go around. It will be a non-stop crying fest.

That will go nicely with Obama’s shadow government running the opposition department for the DNC right down the street from the White House. Obama, The Shadow Whiner.

Jarrett continues the Scandal-Free lie

From the you’ve got to be kidding section of fake news.

Valerie Jarrett: Obama’s White House Has Been Scandal-Free

Breitbart via NYP

The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself.

Jarrett said of both the Obamas, “I think that they behave as the people who they are. What you see in public is the same thing I see in private. Do they feel responsibility because they’re historic figures? Yes, they do. But I don’t think it has made them be different than who they are. The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself. That is not because he is being someone other that who he is. That’s who he is. That is who they are. And that is what really resonates with the American people.”

http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/01/02/valerie-jarrett-obamas-white-house-has-been-scandal-free/

What really resonates with the American people:

The manure is really getting deep. The king of scandal, next to the Clintons, has not a modicum o of honesty. The fruits of the Obamas don’t lie — but they sure do. From Benghazi to the “not a smidgen of corruption” IRS, to his DOJ scandals. Legacy of lies.

Obama has politicized every department, including intelligence. It would be impossible to even get a clear audit on it all, since his administration was so corrupted. If these were not scandals, then why did they spend so much time trying to blame Republicans for it?

They elevated “racism” to their excuse de jure for everything.

What was not a scandal in his administration starting with the stimulus and his signature Obamacare (lying) bill, to EPA and election meddling around the world? He went MIA on the second 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi. He promised Russia more “flexibility after my last election.” Putin collected. Even worse, Obama was never held accountable for any of his scandals. (that’s what she should have said, never accountable.)

Actor James Woods, who recently rejoined Twitter with his conservative posts, slammed Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham for joining Barack Obama in his desire to punish Russia with further sanctions over unproven allegations that Russian hackers interfered in the U.S. elections.

Referring to a story by The Hill newspaper, Woods criticized GOP Senators McCain and Graham for joining Obama and a list of Democrats who want even tougher sanctions on Russia.

Congressional Review Act, Thanks Harry

Law backed by Harry Reid will haunt Dems in 2017

By Susan Crabtree | 12/16/16

One of outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s greatest legislative achievements will come back to haunt Democrats early next year.

President-elect Trump has promised to repeal two federal regulations for every new one issued, and the Congressional Review Act, which Reid co-sponsored in 1996, will give him a running start.

The law gives Congress the power to rescind any unwelcome late, so-called “midnight” regulations from an outgoing president through a simple majority vote in both chambers of Congress.

Since its passage as part of House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America in 1996, it has only been successfully used once, but Republicans are promising to leverage its full power in January to kill rules the Obama administration has issued in its last months in office.

In his 77-minute farewell address on the Senate floor last week, Reid included the Congressional Review Act as one of his top accomplishments in the Senate, along with passage of Obamacare, the 2009 stimulus bill, a taxpayer bill of rights and several other measures

Republicans, with the help of the Congressional Research Service, have compiled a list of roughly 50 regulations they could go after early next year.

“I know some of my Democrat colleagues say, ‘Why did you do that?'” Reid said during his final speech on the Senate floor. “Here’s what I did. I worked with Republican Sen. Don Nickles from Oklahoma … Don and I talked about this. We knew that the administrations would change and it would affect every president, Democrat and Republican.”

CHRISTMAS EVENING

I still believe in Christmas Eve
That Santa Claus tonight will pause
And bring good cheer like every year
A gift he’ll leave on Christmas Eve.
I still believe in Christmas Eve
We know it’s when good will to men
Is sung aloud in every crowd
So this conceive on Christmas Eve.
I still believe in Christmas Eve
Sing Auld Lang Syne for those of mine
And those of yours gone through the doors
Their lives perceive on Christmas Eve.
I still believe in Christmas Eve
When peace and love come from above
The truths are told, our arms enfold
May two hearts weave on Christmas Eve.
