Harry Reid - He will teach you a lesson

Several Senate and House Republicans are planning to skip President Obama's address tonight to a joint session of Congress, in part because they believe he will be showing them nothing new when he unveils his big job creation proposal.

But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has found a way to keep those pesky Republicans in the building, or at least in his chamber.

Reid on Thursday scheduled a vote for after Obama's speech, and it's not one many in the GOP will want to miss. As soon as Obama is done talking, the Senate will proceed to a measure to disapprove a $500 billion increase in the debt limit.

Reid's move means that Sen. David Vitter, R-La., has to skip the party he was planning back home to celebrate the opening night of the NFL season, which will feature the Louisiana Saints.

"Typical Harry Reid," Vitter wrote in a letter to those invited to his party as well as the media. "Pens in those who would have skipped speech, like me. So now I'll miss my own Saints game party at home." More here:

LOL ... You people thought you were going to get away with ignoring the libs? Think again, jackasses. I love it when politicians push others around just to show their power ... it shows how they're smarter than you.

Harry Reid is an asshole and I will never step foot in Las Vegas again.

Really? What on earth will that accomplish except to demonstrate that you think you're far more important than you really are? Not only will your purported boycott of Las Vegas only exist for as long as it's convenient for you, nobody in the world will give a rat's ass whether you "step foot" there or not. Spare us all the dramatics and shut up, Sandy.
