    yes, they have shown their utmost disrespect towards the Senate & democracy.

    don't have enough votes to pass a bill? that's ok, all you have to do is abuse the filibuster rule & make believe you're in session when you're really on vacation, thereby peventing Recess appointment and keeping an entire federal agency from functioning.

    real patriotic stuff.

    While we are on the point, it was Harry Reid legitimized the concept of filibustering judicial nominees with Estrada in 2003. The lame hypocrit Democrats start all this stuff, and then when it is turned on them, they squeal like stuck pigs. Or just plain violate the Constitution.

    They were just doing the Democrat jig, and following the bill as written. And the Law.

    Yes, we know that you consider the demo's to be imperial in their rule because they hold one house of Congress, and the Presidency (for the moment)...You've already been shown in this thread to be wrong on several occasions, and in several postings.

    Give up while your behind.

    so, you see no difference between filibustering a judicial nominee, and threatening to filibuster ANY & ALL nominations for director of an agency, thereby preventing the agency from functioning?????????????????

    you have a problem with the system our Founding Fathers created?

    you think the Republicans should have their way...even if they don't have the votes to get their way?

    sounds like you're pushing for a Republikan dictatorship.

    Not at all, I wish you progressives would follow it.

    It has already been pointed out that the very so called "agency" may be unconstitutional....Next!

    This is priceless, both parties complain about the filibuster and then refuse to allow for up or down votes. Its like a political carousel.
