    All that term limits would end up doing is putting people that are not experianced at politics into the game, possibly against people that do have experiance.

    Besides, term limits on Congress is nothing more than a pipe dream. No one in Congress will ever seriously consider such a bill. Oh they might put it up for a vote on occasion in order to up their reputation with The People so that they can gain more votes...but it will never ever pass.

    Well, what do you mean?
    It sounds as if they are withing the Senate rules. The division of power is intended. It slows things down. That is also intended.
    The filibuster rules were never intended to be used the way that Republicans are using them. There was always a gentlemen's agreement that they should be used sparingly and only for the most serious matters.

    I regret to say that I believe this is the most likely scenario. Men (and women) with guns will decide the issue. I will be very sorry to see it. But I know it is coming.

    And there was also a gentlemans agreement that each side would work with each other. That imo completely ended when they drew up Obamacare behind closed doors while keeping the republican's out and then voting on it ASAP. The democrats really screwed the pooch on that one.

    What you say is in all probability going to happen, after which we can look forward to a Totalitarian Government.

    I love this sentiment. The nation may be safe once again when a substantial majority believe this to be true.

    I was thinking more of his spirit than his appearance. Although I do find his blue lips to be just a bit, uh, well, ugly.

    Usurped, nevertheless, is the wrong term.

    Calling for Mommy might be better.

    There was no pro-forma session in the Senate the day Obama made those appointments, which means they were in recess.
