    Finally, White Flag Harry is showing some signs of common sense

    After a string of losses, Reid has decided to cut his losses and not bring up the amnesty bill, unless the votes are there

    If only Reid would have done that for the Dems surrender bill and no confidence bill of the AG




    Reid presses Bush over GOP votes
    By Stephen Dinan
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES
    June 12, 2007

    The top Senate Democrat said yesterday that President Bush must prove he can deliver more Republican votes before Democrats will put the immigration bill, which collapsed last week, back on the Senate schedule.
    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told Mr. Bush that the only hope for the bill is if he delivers the votes of more than 20 Republican senators to break a filibuster and pass the measure.
    The Nevada Democrat had a frank assessment of the bill's prospects, saying the 51-member Democratic caucus was "about maxed out" at the 38 votes they delivered on a test vote on the bill last week 22 short of breaking a filibuster. They were joined by just seven Republicans one-third of the number Mr. Reid says the president must deliver.
    "It's the president's bill," Mr. Reid said, adding that if Democrats are being counted on to supply the additional votes, "it won't happen."
    Mr. Bush, who will visit with Senate Republicans in a closed-door meeting today to try to rally support, is optimistic, even to the point of sounding jaunty.

    Well now, that's good politics. Next thing you know, Reid is really going to make GW 'own' amnesty, with Democrats coming out with tougher ideas for amendments to the bill than the Republicans are.

    It is a chance for the Dems - a huge majority of the voters are opposed to this insane bill

    I have to agree - but Dems were for before they were against it

    Bush is wrong on this bill - I was glad to see the folks rise up and call the elected representives

    Now, If Reid would be this smart on the surrender bill, the no confidence vote on the AG, and other issues

    Most of the Dems in Congress agree with GW, both of whom are acting against the will of the people on this issue.
