How Stupid Does He Think We Are?

At yesterday's "Summit" Harry Reid assured nervous Americans that the Republicans were the only ones who had mentioned reconciliation as a method for passing Obama's health care proposal. He not only chastised Lamar Alexander for his request that Democrats take the reconciliation process off the table, he insisted that Alexander was entitled to his own beliefs, "but not his own facts."

Some of us distinctly remember that it was just last week that he chastised Republicans for opposing the possibility, by telling them to "stop crying over reconciliation."

Way back in the Bush administration, both the media and the Democrats called it the nuclear option. That was when it was to be used just to approve of judicial appointments. Now that it's a take-over of 17% of the economy, it goes by the innocent sounding term, "reconciliation."
