Pathetic Little Weasel

Harry Reid is again proving his childish hatred for Bush.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has announced that he will call the Senate into pro forma sessions every several days during the upcoming winter recess in order to prevent President Bush from making recess appointments.

Reid explained that he and Josh Bolten, the White House chief of staff, were not able to reach an agreement to prevent Bush from giving a recess appointment to Stephen Bradbury, the actiing head of DOJ”s Legal Counsel, and without that agreement with the White House, Reid refused to allow the Senate to recess for three weeks.

As it stands now, Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) or some other Democrat will come in every couple days, gavel the Senate into session, and then immediately adjourn. This will block Bush from using his recess-appointment authority.

That'll show him, Harry! This is nothing but a tantrum thrown by a little man with a little mind. I hope there's a way around this little fit, and I hope Bush uses it. No wonder Congress has approval numbers in the basement, with its "leadership" pulling stunts like this. Way to get things done, Harry!
