Lindsey Graham: Harry Reid Ate The GOP’s Lunch
Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about the lame duck session is how successful it’s actually ended up being. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal, the impending ratification of the START Treaty, the confirmation of about half-dozen judgeships that had been tied up for most of the year, and a plan to extend the Bush tax cuts. Yes, the Democrats suffered defeats in the failure to pass the DREAM Act and an Omnibus Spending Bill, but as South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham acknowledges, Harry Reid has pretty much won the month:
“When it’s all going to be said and done, Harry Reid has eaten our lunch. This has been a capitulation in two weeks of dramatic proportions of policies that wouldn’t have passed in the new Congress.”
Things will obviously be different after January, but, still, who would’ve thunk it?
