Video: Biden, Dodd, Feinstein and Schumer Attack “Nuclear Option”February 24, 2010
This video (H/T Drudge Report) captures an important piece of recent history, when the GOP controlled the White House and the Senate. The Democrats repeatedly attacked the Republicans for attempting the “nuclear option.” Senator Reid described the Republican strategy as an arrogant power grab.
Senator Dodd said he has never in his time in the Senate passed any bill of any importance that did not have both a Democratic and Republican leader. Then Senator Biden said “I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing.”
The out-takes from this video will make some great 30 second campaign ads if the Dems try reconciliation.
