Republicans pounce on Landrieu’s Keystone defeat

November 19, 2014

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) said Tuesday that the Senate’s failure to pass a bill authorizing the Keystone pipeline doesn’t undermine her reelection efforts.

But Republicans were quick to argue her primary argument for returning to the Senate has now been demolished and that the outcome could further boost Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.).

In a press conference immediately following the vote, Landrieu was asked if the bill’s failure blows a hole in her argument that Louisiana voters need to return her to the Senate because of her clout, experience, and seniority on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

    If it was 59-14 in favor, it would have passed dufus. It failed 59-41, so the Republicans can do math, unlike you.

      I’ll be really nice and not call you a moron. Why don’t you go back and read the news story. Come back and respond here when you have, please. If you continue on the same track, then I’ll call you a name. It won’t be “dufus”.

    The Senate vote was 59-14 IN FAVOR OF the bill. How can the Republicans call that a failure?
