The battle lines are being drawn. On one side are Harry Reid and the Democrats, who support their lawless president and his illegal dictates. On the other side are Ted Cruz, Jeff Sessions and other Republicans who support the Constitution and the American people. On the surface it seems that there would be no question which side would be victorious in such a situation.
Itâ€™s not so simple. Just beneath the crust of the surface lies a Democrat sewer of special interests and political cronyism, personified by Hussein Obama, Harry Reid, Eric Holder and Jeh Johnson. Itâ€™s very difficult for constitutional conservatives to get any traction in DC with the Democrat muck stuck to their shoes.
Harry Reid is asserting the official Democrat position, that Republicans hate government and just want to irresponsibly shut it down. In spite of the government being out of control and doing things that harm rather than help the citizens, Reid takes the position that it must always be fed.
Heâ€™s throwing obstructionist labels around loosely, as Reid often does, branding his political opponents in whatever manner he feels will bring the political result he is seeking.
Last year Reid, with the support of the complicit mainstream media, was able to label Cruz and company as obstructionists. This time it might be a little more difficult. That argument may have gotten old and people may actually see the Democrat gamesmanship for what it is.
The American people may also be waking up to the reality that their economic futures are at stake and the Republicans standing tall in the septic tank that is Harry Reidâ€™s Senate are standing for them.
