    Did the Dems ever take Bush to Court over EOs ?
    No, the SCOTUS has not business in getting involved in the nuclear option. The senate can set their own rules per the constitution. But usually rules are not changed in mid stream, they are agreed upon prior to any session and last the whole session, except this one. No SCOTUS, but I would be find placing Reid's nuts in a vice and twisting it in a nuclear fashion.

    The use of the nuclear option has made recess appointments moot. At least IMO.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Comparing obama to Nixon is justified when discussing ethics and political connivance.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    The question at issue is who gets to determine if the Senate is in recess. Is it the Senate or is it the executive? If it is the Executive, then the Senate has ceased to exist.

    What do you feel should have inspired this action?

    Contrary to democrat belief, democrat presidents ignoring the constitution can be challenged. Shocking, right?

    I'm glad to see you've mellowed on Harry since I was gone the weekend.
    I'm sure Mitch will be glad to extend the nuclear option to the ACA if the GOP takes the Senate.

    This is another decision to prove Linc is correct on his prediction that Sotomayor has joined Roberts and Kennedy in a 3-way.
    I don't think she's very happy with the SCOTUS right now and will make a statement, crossing over .

    If you're gonna get ridiculous and compare Obama to Nixon, you may as well compare Christie to Nixon while you're at it.
