    When his argument is "trust me, I know Sen. Collins!", I tend to discount it.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Senate Democrats, under pressure from a White House arguing separation of powers, rejected a GOP attempt Thursday to provide greater transparency and congressional oversight of 18 czars appointed by the Obama administration without Senate confirmation.

    Democrats employed a procedural tactic to kill the GOP proposal that would have withheld federal funds for the creation of any new, unconfirmed czar positions until the administration agreed to allow the individuals to testify before Congress under "reasonable" requests.

    The proposal also would have required every czar to produce a detailed "public, written report" biannually of their actions and involvement in the creation of policy, rules, and regulations.

    But Democrats used a Senate rule that prohibits legislating on a spending bill -- something that is often done by both political parties despite the rule -- to kill the measure.

    Sen. Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from Maine who sponsored the amendment to a spending bill that funds the Interior Department, decried the move on the Senate floor, saying she was "deeply disappointed" in her Democratic colleagues.

    "My amendment has been carefully tailored to cover officials that the president has unilaterally designated for significant policy matters," said Collins, who is the top Republican on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

    "It would not have covered the president's chief of staff, for example, and it would not cover less senior White House officials, despite some misinformation to the contrary," Collins said, noting that her staff had worked with White House officials Wednesday night without agreement

    Far from it you have no idea what your talking about. The White House has made a very large tactical mistake on this one. What ever support Susan was going to give to this White house was blown.

    She voted for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which Piss Off most of the Consv. Republicans and Children's Health Insurance Reauthorization Act of 2009.

    Plus she has been one of the very few Republicans that have said they are in favor of some sort of Health Care Bill and has offered up some riders for the varoious Health Care Bills.

    Oh, and we're now more liberal when it comes to climate change than Europe.
    So you have proof that "our Leader" has been palling around with "leaders of Venezuela and Cuba" or is this the same old partisan crap pile of false accusations that you are adding to ?

    So very little. If stopping stupid attacks on presidential advisers means she will get pissy and put politics ahead of doing what is right, I got no use for her anyway.

    Actually I don't care who Obama appoints (well almost don't care..) But I do care about transparency. I think that everything that is done by our government, with the exception of military movements and technologies, should be open to the public. And I do mean EVERYTHING.
