Senate Considers Staying Open During Christmas To Block *?
What's to consider? Serious;y...have they still not gotten the message about him and his treacherous ways. If I had the say Harry Reid himself would be plunked in his senate seat until the holidays were over.?

1. they'd BETTER stay.
Anything less will give the Chimpenfuhrer a chance to dick around with his recess appointments.

2. No. Recess. Appointments.
De-fang the monster, and don't let him make any recess appointments.

8. IIRC correctly, it's merely one. they pick a Democratic Senator

6. Oh, I can just hear the Repuke Senators crying now...
"The Dem leadership wants to make us work during the holidays, which will take away from the time that we would spend with our families. This just proves that the Dems in the Senate don't care about families and that they HATE Christmas!!!"

7. Reid may strike a deal to confirm
the disputed nominees in exchange for an administration deferral on recess appointments.
