    Angry BULLSHIT!!! - Harry Reid: "Immigration is going to have to wait until we get a new president and a new Congress"

    Senate immigration bill fails; issue "is going to have to wait"

    By Seattle Times news services

    The Associated Press

    WASHINGTON — The political battles that helped bring down sweeping immigration legislation in the Senate are sure to rage on, although the bill is all but dead until after the 2008 elections.

    "Immigration is going to have to wait until we get a new president and a new Congress," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said after a 46-53 procedural vote Thursday derailed efforts to move the bill toward final passage.

    The House also is almost certain to dodge the issue, with leaders of both parties hoping to spare members the fractious debate that dragged on almost three weeks in the Senate.

    Sidebar:

    Only 13 percent of those in a CBS News Survey taken this week said they supported passage of the Senate's immigration bill. Almost three times that number, 35 percent, opposed it, while 51 percent said they did not know enough about the legislation to say whether they supported it.

    The Senate's three Democratic presidential hopefuls — Hillary Rodham Clinton, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden and Barack Obama — voted to advance the bill. Among Republicans, John McCain voted to keep the measure alive and Sam Brownback did likewise before changing his vote after defeat was obvious.

    Harry Reid is the biggest bullshit artist I've seen in in a long time - Why the hell can't the enforcement parts of this issue be passed now? Let the damn Congressmen work overtime like the rest of us.

    How long can it take for a copy/paste and fastrack the bill through to a vote?

    It'd be great if the Democrats started running on the promise of renewing the amnesty bill. Go, Harry, go!
