I grinned like the Cheshire Cat when I read about the Democrats’ latest tantrum over President Bush’s use of recess appointments to avoid Democratic obstruction of his judicial nominees. Enjoy these samples:
Senate Democrats threatened to stop all of President Bush’s judicial nominees until the White House agrees not to appoint any more judges while Congress is out of town.
“Stop, or we’ll shoot ourselves in the foot!”
I’m sure the Bush-Cheney team will be delighted to play clips of your threats in an upcoming campaign commercial. Please keep spluttering.
“The president’s use of recess appointments to circumvent the advise and consent process puts a finger in the eye of the Constitution,” said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.
Unlike your use of filibusters to prevent nominees from ever reaching the floor of the Senate for a vote, Chuck?
