2:00 p.m.: Convene and resume consideration of the motion to proceed to S.J.Res. 1, the Marriage Protection Amendment.
Friday, May 26, 2006
The Senate convened at 8:45 a.m. and adjourned at 3:03 p.m. Three record votes were taken.
If a hearing becomes available for download from C-SPAN.org, who would be interested in seeing a link to that hearing with a cue time for something worth hearing?
Good morning..do you think the Senate debate on the marriage amendment merits a LIVE thread this afternoon?
Thanks for the ping!
I saw a "debate" on Fox News a little while ago between ex-Senator Don Nichols, and a dem...about this Marriage Amendment.
I didn't get a chance to hear the whole thing...but the last line the dem said was "This is the most cynical move a President has made in the history of this country"...
So...that is the "talking point" of the dems. "cynical" is the word of the day, I guess.
Reid is already up to his dirty tricks. Doesn't get past McConnell.
I think what Reid is saying is that Frist's idea of attaching the immigration bill to the tax bill will mean that the dems will want to offer amendments to the tax bill and they won't be able to. The real effort seems to be to somehow embarras the House and prevent the immig. bill from going to conference. He did not give McConnell advance notice of this maneuver.
Now Harry is going to go into how talking about marriage is not what they should be doing.
should've been Toomey standing there...
Forgive me Jim---
Harry Reid is such a bastard.
Specter just quoted the "distinguised journalist, Andrew Sullivan." LOLOL
Yes, of course, Harry has had a week to make his laundry list of sins of the POTUS...
jeez louise, Specter is such lib!!
He must have spent all week finding quotes of Cheney, Sullivan, etc.
President Bush was right...the activist judges are going to overturn any of the State's bills...
Specter just said our nation's "tolerance" goes against this...
Tolerance is code word for "I am a lib and I want gay marriages".
As A.Hun just said on another thread, it isn't tolerance they want, it's approval.
Oh, terrific, Specter and Leahy getting together to gang up on Brownback...
How many speeches AGAINST this do we have to hear in a row???
I am NOT going to enjoy this debate.
You mean you don't like hearing the same things said over and over again. Other things are more important and this is just a compaign tactic.
Of course there is more important stuff...and I think they should be debated first..
but, I knew that they Senators would USE this time, to debate everything they hate about Bush...and say we SHOULD be debating this, or that.
BTW...I TRIED to go to ken 5050's thread about the marriage amendment...
but, the 3rd post was about immigration, and it went DOWN from there.
Leahy just said that there "are still people in America that can't vote because of the color of their skin".
They can just LIE, LIE, LIE...without consequence, right?
