30. no thanks.
I'll continue to post on any thread I want to. And when Leahy does something I think worthy of criticism, I'll criticize him. I don't because I think he's truly one of the good guys, and does display political courage. I don't spend time criticizng Feingold, Sanders, Kennedy, Kerry and others who are actually fight to restore the Constitution either.

You don't seem to have a clue as to the realities of the Senate.

And I actually supported his holding hearings for Mukasey and thought it was a big mistake for him to say he wouldn't hold hearings unless he got the subpoenaed material. I knew that wasn't going to happen and I knew he wouldn't get any support for NOT holding hearings.

Yes, I and most of my fellow Vermonters, think a lot of Pat Leahy- and we have good reasons for it.

        - He does control the committee though. And if it isn't voted on,  MiniMe   Nov-04-07 07:22 AM   #18 
        - And then we get to hear the "up or down vote" whine.  MADem   Nov-04-07 10:22 AM   #22 
        - Uh, Leahy controls the JUDICIARY COMMITTEE hearing  rateyes   Nov-04-07 07:27 AM   #19 
           - Well, DUH. But he doesn't make the decision as to when the full Senate advises and consents.  MADem   Nov-04-07 10:20 AM   #20 
              - Well, the rules it has to be voted on in the Judiciary  rateyes   Nov-04-07 12:56 PM   #23

                    - You do realize that without a vote in committee, there is no  rateyes   Nov-05-07 12:23 AM   #25

                          - you make an important point that most on this board seem to  paulk   Nov-05-07 01:20 PM   #28
