    What an asshole.

    Reminds me of another speaker who liked to point his finger

    Interesting maneuver by the Democrats on this one. They made it a suspension so no amendments could be added to it, but which require a 2/3 vote.

    So its true they can blame the Republicans for stopping its passage on the vote, but if they really wanted to pass it they would have brought it up as a regular rule, and limited the amendments that could be added. Or they could have voted down the amendments, or swallowed a few that were annoying but not deal breakers.

    This was posturing pure and simple. Remember this will probably only play negatively for the Republicans in the NE and maybe the west coast. Most of middle america and the south won't be bothered by this and thats where the Republican base is now.

    Does this mean that some of the right-wing is just like Hitler? They like to point fingers at Obama and blame him for everything.

    weiner is the next robert byrd... it's good to see some good ole fashoned yelling and screaming and carrying on, on the floor.
    why can't they just let rangle go and forget about it. they should pass a law where it's ok for members of congress to just steal and cheat and lie about stuff, it would save time and money in the end. no rules, they could sell their votes for a secret amount of money, however much they wanted. let them keep expensive gifts, use jets for their own pleasure, put all of their friends on the government payroll, lavish trips to anywhere, you get the idea.

    Says a great deal about the general dishonesty of the Democratic leadership that they would set something like this up. Weirner gets to put on a histrionic show, the measure fails, (which was the desired outcome) and the Republicans catch the heat.
