Who's angry now? Does Senate spat reflect frustrated national mood?

, ,

Washington (CNN) - An emotional debate on the Senate floor Thursday night is putting a microscope once again on the political games in Washington that Americans overwhelmingly detest.

In a rare, direct exchange between Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic Leader Harry Reid on the floor of the chamber, both senators vented frustration during a testy debate on the China currency bill.

    It's about time the democrats began calling these obstructionist what they really are. These modern day extremist, and borderline facist republicans are holding the country hostage for their own political gain.

    The Senate doesn't "reflect" our mood, it is one of the primary causes for our mood. In particular, the GOBPbaggin' obstructionists hate government so much they want it to fail.
