Harry Reid might be finally growing a pair. He did something very sneaky tonight:
The handful of Republican members who had planned on skipping President Obama’s jobs address to a joint session Thursday night might have to think again.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has scheduled a vote for Thursday to proceed on a measure related to the country’s debt – a can’t-miss vote for most members.
The timing of the vote? Right after Obama’s 7 p.m. jobs speech.
But hooker using, still Republican Senator David Vitter is having a little hissy fit over it:
Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), who had sent an e-mail to supporters Wednesday trumpeting his decision to skip the speech and host a New Orleans Saints party instead, said Thursday that he would remain in Washington for the speech and vote – but he was not pleased to be doing so.
In a second e-mail to supporters and in messages on Twitter and Facebook, Vitter accused Reid of playing politics by scheduling the debt vote for Thursday night.
“Typical Harry Reid,” Vitter wrote to supporters in a message with the subject line, “More Scheduling Hijinks.” “He’s now scheduled votes that should’ve been held this morning for right before and right AFTER prez’s speech. Pens in those who would have skipped speech, like me. So now I’ll miss my own Saints game party at home. Always knew Harry was a Dirty Birds fan! Don’t worry — only strengthens my Who Dat resolve. On to the Super Bowl!”
You know what? If Vitter doesn’t want to work, then find someone else that will work and earn that $174,000 a year. I don’t know about you, but I am getting sick and tired of these Republicans in Congress having hissy fits over having to do their job.
Do the fucking job that me and millions of other taxpayers pay you to do. If not, then get the hell out of office. It’s that simple!
