The Democrats threatened something similar over the “nuclear option” on judges that the GOP was seriously contemplating at one time.
utterly the nuclear option was ginned-up by Bill Frist in an attempt to end Dem filibusters over W's nominations.
also, what do you call the GOP's desire to filibuster EVERYTHING, if not abuse of the Senate rules? there is no Constitutional requirement that every bill needs 60 votes to pass; that requirement has come about because the simply GOP threatens to block everything. go look at the numbers of filibusters previous to the GOP becoming the Senate minority, compared to after.Comment Posted By cleek On 20.08.2009 @ 07:22
"...the first of potentially dozens of votes of that day and every single day as the GOP would force the complete reading of all bills and amendments, constantly notice the absence of a quorum, force votes on trivialities, object to all unanimous consent requests and voice votes, and generally wreak havoc to the point where no real business could be done."
and is this not also abuse of the Senate rules ?Comment Posted By cleek On 20.08.2009 @ 07:16
how could there be any doubt that he's not a liberal? just read his manifesto. he HATES liberals (and Jews and Marxists, and lumps all three of them together into "LIBERALISM/MARXISM/JEWRY" whenever he mentions them.Comment Posted By cleek On 13.06.2009 @ 08:22
i'll give you post #3. but would you care to explain why you deleted the first two? (in which i mentioned that it's a shame Marcotte wasn't a wingnut because, as a blond bombthrower, she'd make a good replacement for the aging Ann Coulter)Comment Posted By cleek On 7.02.2007 @ 16:23
So, how many comments have you deleted today?
I know you've whacked three of mine so far.Comment Posted By cleek On 7.02.2007 @ 15:56
If the press, like Reuters, from whom we get the news, is caught lying, then who can we go to when we need to know the news?
let me guess... Rush, Malkin and Hanitty ? maybe O'Reilly ?
and, no, Reuters wasn't "caught lying", they found out that one of their employees was breaking the rules, so they suspended him. Reuters only mistake was in hiring him - a mistake that's only visible via the magic of hindsight, of course.Comment Posted By cleek On 8.08.2006 @ 13:48
the fact is that the doctored photo was done to elicit a greater emotional response from the reader
so, you're a mind-reader, too ? what a fabulous talent!
What does concern me is that you have become the unwitting propaganda pawns of Hizbullah when you ignore what Reuters has admitted doing; they have pulled every single one of Mr. Hajjâ€™s photos from their archives because he has apparently been doctoring photos for weeks. The implications are staggering. It is now impossible to trust any â€œnewsâ€ coming from Reuters.
so, they do the absolutely correct thing in pulling the photos, and this proves that they can't be trusted. is there any action they could've taken which would've proved that they can be trusted? apparently no. sounds to me like you're just looking for a reason to whine.
shocker!Comment Posted By cleek On 8.08.2006 @ 07:43
