    These are the statements both men made when asked about Bush's recess appointment of Bolton to the UN.


    "At a time when we need to reassert our diplomatic power in the world, President Bush has decided to send a seriously flawed and weakened candidate to the United Nations. It's an unnecessary result, and the latest abuse of power by the Bush White House. ... Bolton arrives at the United Nations with a cloud hanging over his head." — Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.


    "The abuse of power and the cloak of secrecy from the White House continues. ... It's a devious maneuver that evades the constitutional requirement of Senate consent and only further darkens the cloud over Mr. Bolton's credibility at the U.N." — Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (news, bio, voting record), D-Mass.

    The other Dems in the list parroted eachother nicely...but these two were certainly my favorites. You'd think some of the "finest minds" in the nation would be able to get together and work out some different talking points to avoid embarrassing overlaps like this...

    Wonder why we didn't hear them using the term "abuse of power" when Clinton made all his recess appointments? They were both serving in the Senate at that time. I guess when a Republican President makes a recess appointment, to Senators Kennedy and Reid, it is "abuse of power"; when a Democrat President makes a recess appointment, it isn't.

    Not embarrassing to them at all - just another example (one of thousands) of the liberal politburo commissars dictating the agenda :huddle: - and them following it - like good little comrades.

    Just mouthing the Talking Points that they were sent by their Dem Leadership who payed some people to sit in groups and listen to different pitches. This was the one that seemed most effective.

    "Cloud over his head". We're going to hear a lot of this. Just wait until it starts showing up in News articles, at the same time as the Libs are attempting to make it seem that the Left doesn't own the news airwaves.

    An image comes to mind of the Hallmark commercial with the woman who has a box of greeting cards, with at least one for every possible situation. Well, I see them as having a box full of speeches in their offices, sent straight from the DNC. Sure, they mix the speech up a bit to make it sound original, but it's still the same thing.

    I loved that little puffed-up phrase, too. Senator Kennedy surely was audacious to use it to describe Bolton when it applies far more to Kennedy's "public" escapades than it does to Bolton's.

    So then you seriously believe that Reid and Kennedy DO share a brain? :D

    spouts whatever tripe the dnc can grind out every day. What more proof is needed that the left is totally "clintonized". That being, use "poli-speak" (ala George Orwells 1984 "Newspeak") to react to everything. They've their little cohort of Ivy League lie makers spinning verbage to selected groups and choose the lie that sounds the best. They are propangandists in the most evil spirit of Goebbels and Pravda. As we say here in the Southwest "Just a worthless bunch of lying sons-of-bitches".
