    No recess for Bush

    In six years, Bush made 167 controversial appointments while Congress was not in session.

    Not this time.

    Nice. Typical of the Dems to accomplish something by doing nothing.

    Are you taking over for walty's unabashed BDS?


    'The Constitution gives a president the power to fill vacancies without the Senate's confirmation when the legislative body is in recess.'

    So due process was followed all of those 167 times.
    Nice to see the dem congress earn that raise it gave itself.

    The laugh about due process is a laugh at reid (white gflag surrender monkey that he is )

    [SIZE=2]But that progress can’t be made if the President seeks controversial recess appointments and fails to make Democratic appointments to important commissions.

    As Democratic leader, I recommend nominees to the President for many important commissions like the Federal Communications Commission, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

    These independent agencies are required by law to have Democratic representation.

    As a result, the President has a statutory obligation to honor my recommendations and move on them in good faith. [/SIZE]


    The bold portions of reids statement are pure unadulterated bullshit.

    Walt is inimitable.

    There is no mystery here.

    In the early days of the country, Congress was not in session for long periods of time. Constitutional scholars tell us that the purpose of recess appointments was not to circumvent congressional oversight.

    Now we all know Bush is not fond of the U.S. Constitution, ("just a piece of paper'), but some of us do care about it, and putting a stop to Bush's end run around it can only be a good thing for us.

    See? No controversy here at all for Americans.

    "White flag surrender monkey"--what horseshit. We know where the chimp is. Where is bin Laden?

    no mystery correct, GWB is following the constitutional law. Seems like you have a p[roblem with that. No surprise.

    Reid has been preaching surrender from the beginning as well as slandering the troops in the process, but, hey it's OK right?
    The chimps are the dems in congress that promised to get things done, well except fort he raise they gave themselves they've done absolutely nothing.

    The chimps are those who follow lockstep with the "defeat for America is good" crowd, you know the left.

    Congress is seeing to it that the Founders' intentions are respected. You have a problem with that?

    c'mon, bh, you're really fishing on that one. If what you say is true why didn't reid mention that? Because that's not why reid is calling for the pro-forma sessions. His reason, as he stated, is solely to block recess noiminations because he says bush won't appoint democrats.
    Congress especially the dems are strictly oppositional, defiant and confrontational. No more no less.
    Well maybe expect for the rare Feinstein action.

    If it were true, then, no I wouldn't. But it's not, so yes I do.
