Video: Mark Levin Goes Nuclear On Obama, Reid, McConnell Over Filibuster Vote

I kinda figured Mark Levin would treat his audience to a world class rant following today’s events.

Here, he fisked Obama’s idiotic but totally predictable comments following the Senate Democrats’ naked power power grab in the Senate. I scream at the TV when I hear him, too.

More cathartic than entertaining because the deadly serious subject matter:

Levin criticized Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for allowing himself to be played by Dingy.

“Do they understand that they look like a bunch of buffoons and cowards. Do they understand that they actually have power but they keep surrendering it upfront. It is absolutely unbelievable to me.”

After ridiculing what the Republicans said on the Senate floor, today, he offered his advice on what they should have said: “You go ahead and do this Harry Reid…..let me tell you what we’ll do when we retake the Senate. We’re going to eliminate the filibuster rule altogether, and by a simple rule, we’re going to eliminate ObamaCare….”

I suspect that Republicans were worried that by being that explicit, (they’ve made vague threats like “Dems will be sorry) the hostilities would escalate, and Reid would expand the simple majority rule to legislative votes, as well as judicial radical nominees.

NRO: Nuclear Fallout:

The Democrats here are helping themselves to ill-gotten gains. Using the filibuster and other stalling techniques, they kept judicial vacancies open by closing them to Bush nominees. Miguel Estrada was kept off of the D.C. Court of Appeals by a filibuster; Democrats refused to process John Roberts’s nomination to the same court (to succeed James Buckley, the gentleman previously known in these pages as the sainted junior senator from New York). Later, when Roberts was named to the Supreme Court, Democrats blocked George W. Bush’s nominee for his replacement, Peter D. Keisler. Roberts’s earlier nomination advanced only after Republicans took control of the Senate, something that Harry Reid in his hubris seems to think will never happen again.

Charles Hurt, Big Government: THE NUCLEAR OPTION: OBAMA MOCKS THE CONSTITUTION:

Disgraced. An embarrassment. Utter disregard for the law.

Toronto’s crack mayor, Rob Ford?

No. President Obama.

This is a man who was granted the extraordinary luxury of attending one of the most prestigious universities in the world. He went to law school. He told us he was an expert on constitutional law. He taught students about the U.S. Constitution.

He is now our president and fills a rather large role in executing that Constitution.

And it is as if he has never read the actual Constitution. Or, as if he read it and found it all so confusing that he simply could not comprehend one of the most basic tenets of it — that the legislature writes laws, which then go to the president for either his signature or veto.

Presidents do not get to write laws. They do not get to ignore laws they do not like or make up new ones on a whim.

Presidents do not get to refuse to negotiate with Congress on financial matters because the president doesn’t like what Congress has been urgently instructed to do by voters. He doesn’t get to make end runs around Congress.

  1. Ya gotta love Levin!

    I’m betting that after the dims manage to place several radical Judges to the Courts, especially to the D.C. Circuit Court, that they may have had blocked, they’ll rescind their own rule before the next election. That way the republicans if they win the Senate will have to do their own change to the rules in order to get even with the dims.

    Once again the repubics get out maneuvered and taken to the cleaners by the dims. {standing around scratching their heads wondering what the hell just happened} Anyone wanna bet how long it is before they are bending over backwards trying to make another bi-partisan {a McLame, Graham, Flake, Collins, Cornyn, Corker, Alexander} deal? You know the ones that think the real enemy is Cruz, Lee & Paul, a.k.a. whacko birds.

  2. Solution: Turn about is fair play. Ignore the appointments made under this rule once you come into power. Treat the “occupied” judicial seats as vacant and allow the new administration to appoint individuals to fill the vacancies.

    Improperly appointed public officials are not ever truly or legally appointed at all. Apointments under this “law” are VOID AB INITIO.
