    From the article....


    Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.) locked Republicans out of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee room to keep them from meeting when Democrats aren’t present.

    Towns’ action came after repeated public ridicule from the leading Republican on the committee, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), over Towns’s failure to launch an investigation into Countrywide Mortgage’s reported sweetheart deals to VIPs.


    Nice to see such adult behavior.

    We really need to elect less idiots. Just sayin'.

    You must have been really pissed when Sensenbrenner locked the Democrats out, forced them to meet in a basement, turned the electricity off during their meeting.

    So much for the argument by some on the left that the republicans have nothing to offer. How would they know they dont even give the republicans a chance :rolleyes:

    Ugh. This is pathetic politics no matter which side would do such an action.

    What a circle jerk. The GOP tries to play politics and the D's play politics back and we are all dumber for it.

    Well, this isn't exactly offering a plan on anything. The republicans on this particular committee just want to investigate Democrats.

    Firstly, despite insistence to the contrary...... two wrongs do not equal right. It is just two wrongs.

    Childish behavior really needs to stop - we are in a tail spin - despite what the Obamanation would have us believe - and it is high time that we all (left and right) demanded that our politicians stop the fucking idiocy and start solving the problems.

    I agree that two wrongs don't make a right....and I'm quite sure that when the Republicans did it to the Democrats a few years ago, you were complaining about foul play back then too, like I was.

    Actually, yes. I did call foul on it back then. And I call foul on it now. Two wrongs etc. Childish behavior by those who are supposed to lead is pretty fucking pathetic, in my opinion.

    I thought I'd made that clear in my post but obviously I need to put it more simply for some. I'm perfectly at ease calling both sides a bunch of fucking morons who aren't capable of running a tap without supervision, yet alone the country.
