    In all fairness, it was Sgt. Rock who said that. Which, if you consider his posting history, was comparatively lucid for him.

    Except that we all know there WAS a recess and Republicans were playing a little game pretending that there wasn't.

    Kind of a weasly thing.

    As noted by another, I did not say it. When I did make a joke about it, I referred to it as "dick-tater", specifically also noting that I meant as in "penis potato". Now, if you can't manage to appreciate a little humor and sarcasm without blowing a gasket, how about going back to the kiddie pool, as you have no business in the tall weeds with the rest of us.

    BTW, I own everything that I say. And then I own libs.

He's an arrogant, inept, narcistic putz. But he has his lemming supporters, and they are a greater threat to the Republic than Obama, as Obama will be out of office, sooner or later. But the lemmings will still be lemmings.
    Given your wealth of resources, perhaps you could link to something indicating that the Republicans were actually interested in vetting the candidate, as opposed to twisting the advice and consent process in an illegitimate attempt to force an amendment to an existing law?

    You mean like the recess that Harry Reid said would not allow to take place during Bush when he wanted to appoint Estrada? You libs are real pips....You screamed bloody murder when Bush's people were telling him to end run congress with appointments due to pro forma's being enacted, but with Obama it's all good eh?


    nuff hypocrisy for the night...c-ya in the morning.

    That is why we have courts. Let's wait and see what evolves, eh...?

    Yep, exactly like that. The difference is that Obama had the balls to call Republicans on it. Finally.

    And we also know that the current day "Recess Appointment" is a game. And we know that Reid played the game 4 years ago. And that Obama's solicitor generals's office argued to same game to SCOTUS. All linked earlier in the thread.

    So the question is ... why do you ignore the rules of the game, and now give Obama a pass to go nuclear ? You are endorsing the erosion of the Republic, and of principle, for cheap political gain.

    Is this some bad joke ? Really bad joke ? I and others linked to letter the Republicans sent to Obama, laying out the deal exactly. They had the courtesy, and political professionalism, to put it all exactly in writing.

    What do you think politics is ? A set of statutes, like speed limits ? WTFU for chrissakes.
