As much as it is a naked power grab, that is what you get when you lose big time in elections GOP. When you win, you get to make the rules. When you lose, they get to make the rules.

Apparently it was wrong for Republicans to make news rules to boost their power in Congress, but not for Democrats. I find that interesting.

Wait, Pelosi full of crap? A politician lying? I don't believe it. Utter nonsense.

I bet Pelosi and Reid play "naked power grab" during lonely nights on the hill.

Opposition tactics could include offering motions to adjourn and walking out of the House chamber.

Ummm, ok. And to all those who bought into "hope and change", waiting for the new brighter, shinier America? We just tell them too bad suckers, you should have known better?

Congress has a long, distinguished history of suck, we know this. But again, instead of nanny nanny boo boo, isn't everything supposed to be different?

Pelosi's power move leaves House Republicans fuming.

You know what else leaves Republicans fuming?


Doors on the stalls in men's bathrooms.

Congressional Pages who refuse to sit on their laps.

Voters that refuse to reward them for running up the deficit.

Presidents that use the military to protect the United States rather than to deal with daddy issues.

Women in comas that refuse to wake up.

3_Butt_Cheeks isn't everything supposed to be different?


it is. pissant republicans can no longer offer motions to recommit demanding that some appropriations bill for a road should actually be a declaration that abortion is bad.
 
2009-01-07 03:29:25 PM  
We shouldn't rest until term limits are established for congress. We have to get rid of these career politicians and get some new blood working through the system.

The idiot mentality of voters to re-elect incumbents would change there would be more involvement and interest in congressional elections. Case in point: you re-elected most of the idiots who voted in the whole Wall Street bailout. WTF??? (I didn't vote for anyone who supported that fiasco).

Even reasonable democrats should realize having power completely lopsided on one party isn't good for the country. Gridlock = balance.

theigorway: Good for Pelosi -- it's about time she showed some muscle.

I think this is about changing the rules so Congressional Democrats don't have to show any muscle.

"Oh no, we might have to take politically difficult votes. We might have to actual stand up for the values of the people we supposedly represent. Let's change the rules so we can continue doing things half-assed."

Congressional Democrats need to grow a spine and actually stand for something once in awhile.

Congress, Pelosi Reid and company, used the same mantra as P.E. Obama. You cannot separate the two when they use the same platform. True, Obama does not direct congress, but they sure as hell aren't going to go against his wishes after this election.

What's the point of having House rules if they are so damn easy to change? Just get rid of all the rules and let's have some good ole anarchy.

World's smallest violin.

After the way the Republicans ran congress (poppers) they're lucky Democrats even let them have offices. They've already been treated much better than they deserved after being complete asshats while they were in the majority.

Hey don't you guys remember, election have consequences.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Seems like there was a lot more obstruction just to be whiny tools by the right, so I can't say I blame them. In a perfect world Pelosi wouldn't do this but then again who are we really kidding here? The Republicans don't have any intention of trying to work with the Democrats and everyone knows it. Do we really need to re-hash Boehner saying they wouldn't vote for the bailout because Pelosi hurt their feelings with a "partisan" speech?

I wasn't aware that Obama's "post-partisanship" meant "partisan retribution." Granted, only an idiot would have bought that BS during the campaign.

Thanks for making the point all the BS of the last campaign year was nothing but that. You are more concerned about getting your perceived "revenge" than anything else. Well done.

Just because they latched on to his successful formula doesn't mean he should be held accountable for their d-baggery. And if you don't think they're gonna be at odds with each other, you haven't been paying attention. Reid and Pelosi have made it clear they're not gonna let Obama control them like Bush did. Which makes no sense whatsoever, but then again, Pelosi and Reid are idiots.

Reid: I don't work for Obama (new window)

In talks with Emanuel and others, sources say, Pelosi has 'set parameters' for what she wants from Barack Obama and his White House staff (new window)

umm...Republicans put this rule in place during The Contract with America when they took power to increase bipartisanship and allow the whipped Democrats a voice.......
 
2009-01-07 03:47:02 PM  
If she went bipartisan, fine.

If not, FARK YOU, REPUBLICANS. You didn't even attempt to try when you were in power. There is ZERO chance that you will try to be bipartisan next time you are in power, regardless of what the Democrats do.

I don't give a crap about "breaking the cycle". It never actually happens. Turnabout is always fair play in politics. You will screw the Dems regardless, so might as well get some lube out, it's gonna hurt. The only one who will prevent it from becoming a bloodbath is ironically Obama. Your savior is a secret muslim. HAHAHAHAHAA.

Maybe if both sides actually tried. Neither one is willing to sacrifice when they're in power, and all it does is crew over the common voter. Also, you sound insane
