6. Yup! That's it in a nutshell! If the President is not pleased,
they have to eat cake.

81. That's A Pathetic Statement
That bugs me. The president is not an emperor. The attorneys serve at the pleasure of the prez, with the oversight of the over two branches. It doesn't say "pleasure of the president" anywhere in the constitution. That means the appointments must pass the same muster as every other branch to branch relationship.

It's going to be Exhibit #1 for the Cons to hold up that all Democrats are loony, far left fringe from the "mainstream" of America.

I'm not afraid of being tagged a Liberal, a Democrat, or on the Left. But, I'm tired of having to fight strawmen arguments that get thrown out from antics like these.

66. I cannot believe he's trying to frame himself as an altruistic public servant.
A willing cog in the Republican machine that is George Bush's GOP is more like it. Now that he's danced and has to pay the piper, suddenly, it was all about humble public service.

112. Leahy said they worked it out with Reid that all the votes would be
as early as possible, and once done, there would be no more interuptions the rest of the day.

109. I missed Sampson's statement, though. I only turned it off because of Leahy's "break".
