Typical modern "reform," change a few trivial rules, ignore the main problem, and then strut around as if you'd done something.

The 'silent' filibuster should've been GONE. Natually that's one thing that Reid, McConnell, and others were on the same page on. No real changes to the arcane, outdated Senate rules.

Bleah!

Take your offtopic garbage and stuff it, rightie. Except for the "47%ers" BS, PLEASE keep using that right up to the 2014 elections so we can watch you lose control of the House, too!

Why does Reno send ATF after a child rapist????....local police and DPS informed her they could have had him anytime..he was always out of the compound in Waco. She overruled him becuase she wanted to impress her boss and people like you that she would "get the guns!"
87 innocent women and children......dead, burned alive. Al Queda still attacking all through clintons terms. Terroists pilots trained during his terms. You socialsts don't care how many children you kill to impress your voters. or sieze power. Stalin, Polo Pot, Mao, Il, Fidel........ DUH
The usual disjointed, offtopic, blustering far-right babble from you, I see. Even Waco somehow gets into the mix of furious, ranting nonsense you pump out daily on these boards.

Absolutely pathetic. You should be put out to pasture - or the glue factory.

Bush was 7 months in office on 9/11, bozo. Clinton was president for 8 years and al queda attacked us many times. What did ol slick do about it........attack Mt. Carmal and chased interns around the oval office. Well shyte, that really helped. The are more rich democrats than republicans, screwball.
More irrelevant, dishonest, off-topic ranting. You're the king of that on Topix, to be sure.

Bush was in his eighth month, FYI, and had received explicit warnings of an imminent al-Qai'da attack which he and Cheney disregarded. And we can assume that was deliberate since a day after 9/11, they were already discussing a future war with Iraq.

Clinton launched cruise missiles on al-Qai'da training camps in Afghanistan, dumbass. More than Bush ever did until he started the current unending war in Afghanistan AFTER the fact.

Please, stop embarassing yourself.

<quoted text>COURT TO OBAMA: ABUSE OF POWER
In a case freighted with major constitutional implications, a federal appeals court on Friday overturned President Obama’s controversial recess appointments from last year, ruling he abused his powers and acted when the Senate was not actually in a recess.
The three-judge panel’s ruling is a major blow to Mr. Obama. The judges ruled that the appointments Mr. Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal, and the board no longer has a quorum to operate.
But the ruling has even broader constitutional significance, with the judges arguing that the president’s recess appointment powers don’t apply to “intersession” appointments — those made when Congress has left town for a few days or weeks.
The judges signaled the power only applies after Congress has adjourned sine die, which is a legislative term of art that signals the end to a long work period. In modern times, it means the president could only use his powers when Congress quits business at the end of a year.
“The dearth of intersession appointments in the years and decades following the ratification of the Constitution speaks far more impressively than the history of recent presidential exercise of a supposed power to make such appointments,” the judges wrote.

The 47 percenters that help[ed Obama win the election: front line soldiers, senior citizens, and the majority being people who work full time at substandard wages.
