Harry Reid's new excuse on the 60 votes in the senate, "..we cannot bulldoze anybody.."

It just can't get any better than that.

Again, we do have 60 votes for the Democrats, but with leaders like Harry Reid, I am here to tell you, NOT FOR LONG.

Reid has been notorious for making up any excuse for not pushing legislation through, but now faced with the fact of a 60 fillbuster proof majority, he still doesn't get it.

“We have 60 votes on paper,” Senator Harry Reid, the majority leader, said Wednesday in an interview. “But we cannot bulldoze anybody; it doesn’t work that way. My caucus doesn’t allow it. And we have a very diverse group of senators philosophically. I am not this morning suddenly flexing my muscles.”

Indeed, becoming the first party in 30 years to reach the fabled plateau of 60 could create as many political problems as it solves, raising expectations sky high and potentially causing a backlash should Democrats falter on energy or health care.

“The American people are going to say, ‘Look, we have given you the authority to make changes on health care, go ahead and do it,’ ” said Senator Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent aligned with the Democrats. “No more excuses.”

Senator Reid, President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, the public DOES expect you not to falter on health care and energy, along with the other things that the Democrats were put in charge with.

If you don't understand this, can't figure it out, or out of touch, let me tell you this, "You better get in touch and with a quickness." Change was what this country voted for and with it you got a mandate.

Now do your jobs and deliver.
