CSPAN always did lean left just not as far as the old networks.

If energy and economic problems and such as such big problems, why does Nancy Pelosi allow the House to adjourn then? I know Congress likes their vacation, but, if these issues are that severe, wouldn’t Nancy want her people to stay and do the people’s business?????????

My letter to Pelosi last night:

(feel free to copy and paste it...LOL)

“How dare you hold this entire country HOSTAGE to your left wing environmental marxist ideology!

75% of this country wants to Drill NOW and have access to our OWN RESOURCES!!

We demand an up or down vote on The American Energy Act before you fly off on a vacation that the REST OF THE COUNTRY CAN’T AFFORD!!”

C-SPAN is probably acting on the theory that the session has been gavelled to a close and that the House is not officially in session. Just a guess.

Yeah, this is kind of the freakiest thing I have ever seen or recalled. I’m sure some crazy stuff went on before I became politically aware, but I have never heard of this type of tantrum.

Maybe over in Japan where they wack each other around. I’d bet they do that here too, but only in local governments.

According to your link, they voted 213-212 to adjourn, with 17 Democrats and 0 Republicans breaking ranks.

We lost by one freaking vote!

Here in Texas three years ago or so there was a rebellion in the legislature regarding redistricting (if I remember correctly) and half of them actually left the state so the vote could not be called ...etc.

If the Republicans stay there and continue to call for action ... it will make news and cause much attention be focused on the process and how the democrats are attempting to force their way without hearings.

POWER TO THE LEGISLATORS STANDING UP FOR ONCE.

House Votes on Recess, but Is It Enough to Leave Town?
Friday, August 01, 2008

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,395702,00.html

The House of Representatives maybe have voted Wednesday to approve its August adjournment, but now, they have to do it again — and that could be a problem for House Democrats.

Republicans threatened to hold the House in session over the August break since Democrats never allowed them to have a vote on offshore drilling. And the adjournment resolution passed Wednesday by only one vote, with 17 Democrats voting with Republicans.

But the rub is that Senate hasn’t passed its adjournment resolution yet, and the Constitution requires the House and Senate “agree” on what they’re going to do when lawmakers leave for any extended period of time.

Lately, the Senate has not been adjourning, only meeting every couple of days. That prevents President Bush from making “recess appointments” of controversial judicial nominees the Senate wouldn’t otherwise confirm. The President can bypass the Senate when it adjourns for longer time periods, such as the August recess.

The House wrote its adjournment resolution in a way that might not synch up with the Senate. So, the House may have to take a mulligan on the previous vote to adjourn and agree to meet every couple days — for only a few minutes usually — as the Senate will do for the month of August.

The vote in the House again could be close. But a senior House source tells FOX News that the Democrats have the votes to get out of town.

Take a gander at what C-SPAN is showing now from earlier today. Senators talking about a compromise, and it ain’t sounding good.

The senate will do absolutely nothing about drilling in this term. It just won't happen until AFTER the elections. Pelosi will not allow her Man, Obama, take a stand with the environmentalists and against the American people. This would devastate his campaign. With his Marxist statement today, taking from the rich to give to the poor, will appease the American people until they find out it isn't for people who pay taxes but is paid by people who pay taxes.

I used to look forward to the August recess. It was the only time I could drive the Capitol Beltway without a hassle. However, special session is in order. If for nothing else, to expose Dems for what they are: Empty suit politicians who would rather debate and obfuscate issues than solve them.
