LIVE THREAD: Senate Coverage AND Senate Foreign Relations Committee vote on Bolton nomination
C-span

Posted on 04/19/2005 11:07:48 AM PDT by ken5050

OK..here's what we know..Senate is in recess for the weekly party caucus luncheons. Supposed to resume at 2:15. on C-span 2.. The Foreign Relations committee is supposed to meet at 2:45 to vote on the Bolton nomination. Lugar has refused requests for a delay. Just before the Senate recessed, Reid objected to Frist's UC request for the Froeign Relations committee to meet today. Frist withdrew his request..

When the Senate convenes at 2:15..the Dems are supposed to move to adjourn..without enabling the FR committee to meet..

Soudn to me like the Dems figure since Frist is gonna go nuclear..they should start screwing up the place now...

Follow along here as it plays out...

I tentatively believe that "Play Ball" Frist, even, has had enough of the Dems and thinks the time is right to blast 'em. I don't care much for Frist but I think even he is fed up.

Well, IF this Bolton hearing takes place, I think Frist will be happier, BUT hopefully, the shenanigans that the dems are up to today, will convince him to REALLY get tough!

We might as well just neutralize the Dems now, they aren't interested in cooperation, off with the gloves is what I say. Let's clear Bolton and start in on the judges tomorrow.

Frist has just recessed the Senate until 4:15 today--Babs Boxer objected---

He said it again--Boxer asked for absence of quorum!

I KNEW THE DAMN DEMS WOULD PLAY THIS GAME!

The demons know that the media will paint them in the most favorable light and condemn all things republican.

They have nothing to lose, so they think.

Talk radio and the pajama people will be making sure that everyone learns of their obstruction.

I don't like Bolton.

So, for the benefit of Dem lurkers I give this advice to rouse up the people to your side:

Stick with your strategy exposing the fact that Bolton had arguments. Emphasize that Bolton is contrary and will not appreciate our "allies" in the UN enough. Specifically mention France and Germany. Mention France a lot, and that our ally France disapproves of Bolton. Don't be shy.

I don't think Obams, or Durbin, are there today. They missed both votes today.

OOPSY, Frist has just called for the Sargent at Arms to go and gather Senators in order to have a quorum---

They are voting on it right now---

I have never seen this---are we having fun yet?

Shermy--what do YOU have against Bolton?

You know...when the nuclear option is invoked..these judges will be confirmed with votes in the high 50's..even some will get 60..as the 6 Dems in Red states up in 2006 will vote for most of them. It will therefore be a hard argumen for the Dems to make that the minority had a right to block votes on them..They've painted themselves into a bigger corner..

I think though, with the actions of the dems today, that Kyl's bet that a bunch won't make it to the judiciary committee meeting on Thursday for judicial nominee votes is pretty good!!!

"When"? More like "if" (after all, we're dealing with Senate RINOs here, not Republicans).

They would do much better with a transverse cut - get both the radial and ulnar vessels.
