The link doesn't say what is the deal but the poll question came up at the same time. It asked if I approved of McCain's deal. That is all I needed to know to vote no. Too bad Hell No! wasn't an option.
Bad I've decided. Extraordinary circumstances are going to be when there's a judge that is deemed to right wing.
Well the Republicrats have caved and have thrown at least 2 judges under the bus. I do hope that these moderates are defeated for re-election.
Somebody help me out here. It looks as though all the Rats succeeded in doing was preserving the filibuster until the next time they decide to use it at which time Frist can make a cloture motion and it can be gotten rid then if necessary.Am I right or wrong? Bush's nominees will get there mup or down vote. Right?
I do believe we have been betrayed by those we elected to
represent us. We have been handed over to the enemy for the
sake of "senate" tradition. I hereby pledge to withhold
monies from ANY republican group however far removed from
this act of treachery. I certainly hope that we will not be
further insulted by some self serving pile of excrement
posing as an elected representative whining that we simply
don't understand the intricacies of the "revered senatorial
Cowards have no place in the role of leadership and we are
unfortunate indeed to be led by just such a miserable lot.
BAD, BAD, BAD!!!! The specter of filibuster for any judicial appointment is a clear defeat for the Constitution and the American people.
I looked up Moderate Republican in the dictionary, it was listed as a synonym for Democratic tool.
Republican Senate does what it does best ... fold tents.
It's always bad to be a wimp, it just encourages the bullies more.
It appears this deal just kicks the can down the road. What will the Senate look like in 06 or 08?
