It remains to be seen if this is that one special time he doesn’t pull the football away:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) declared Thursday that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “broke his word” when it comes to presidential nominations and kept the nuclear option on the table.
“Senator McConnell committed to end the constant Republican obstruction and return the Senate to a time when nominations were processed more efficiently,” he said. “Those were his commitments. Those were his promises. By any objective standard, they’ve been broken.”
A worked up McConnell responded shortly after, insisting that Republicans have been fair to President Obama’s nominees and vowing that Democrats will regret it if they change the rules with the nuclear option.
