Leave it to the Dems to turn the lights out in DC.
Anything on Fox yet?
CSPAN always did lean left just not as far as the old networks.
Hey, wait a minute. Isn’t CSPAN OUR channel? You know, as in our access to our gov? How dare they? (Oh, they’re prolly just ticked cos GB and his daddy and bro called Rush today!)
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?????????
I wish I lived close enough to take them some storm lamps...
LOL! Call the WH too and encourage President Bush to call an emergency ‘special session’ of Congress!!
AND GIVE OL Nancy a shout too:
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 CANT AFFORD!!
Re: Leave it to the Dems to turn the lights out in DC.
That is their energy plan.
Get out the cots!
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.
Republicans actually acting like Republicans bump!
They’d BETTER not back down again!
It’s Vacation Time Baby!
CALL THE REPUBLICANS AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO STAY AND KEEP RAISING CAIN!!!!
THEY NEED OUR SUPPORT!!
THEIR STAFF WILL GET THEM THE MESSAGES IF WE KEEP CALLING!!!
I would prefer " going to the matresses!"
They actually TURNED OFF THE LIGHTS!? As in, it is dark in the chamber?
WT ever-lovin’ F is going on? HOLEE SH*T!
Na, if the Dems where doing this, DNC-SPAN would be covering it.
HOUSE REPUBLICANS RAISING CAIN!!!
Yeah, with all the rage of a caged mouse.
GO TO THE MATRESSES, AND SEND IN THE PIZZA!
President Bush 43, President Bush 41, and Governor Jeb together called Rush to wish him a Happy Anniversary. W made a nice push for drilling. No-Drill Dems—no beach for you!
Here are some helpful links:
Get to it folks!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
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!
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.
Any chance we could please get this placed into, “Breaking News?”
No mention on Drudge (yet)? Is this for real?
That was how I got this info
I have been calling DC ALL morning urging them to STAY!!!
it would shame the DEMS!
they all loved the idea....
it looks like they meant it when they said it....
I am NOT the ONLY one with this idea— I am not the ONLY one calling!!
KEEP ENCOURAGING THEM FOLKS!!!
YES!!! (best movie ever)...
House Votes on Recess, but Is It Enough to Leave Town?
Friday, August 01, 2008
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.
Just talked to Boehner’s office. They said that the SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE is responsible for turning off the mics and the lights!!
CALL THE SPEAKERS OFFICE!!
Take a gander at what C-SPAN is showing now from earlier today. Senators talking about a compromise, and it ain’t sounding good.
Maybe you should arrange weekly meetings :)
QUICK!! Somebody Nancy Pelosi that Botox is made from oil, and unless the price of oil drops soon, she can’t get any more Botox. The lightbulb would go off soon enough.
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.
Is this really true?
I would send in Pizza if it is. I’m serious, call a Washington Pizza delivery and send it in.
Is it true?
Told them, get those lights back on, stay and FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!
I called and they put to a recorded message to LEAVE A COMMENT!
I called back and told them to turn lights on before he could transfer me...
he said the “the lights are on here in the office.”
I said the HOUSE FLOOR LIGHTS!
He transferred me to the COMMENT LINE again!
THE ARROGANT $#%@!!!!!
So- they are showing earlier press conf from Rep senators -on the HOUSE CHANNEL.....LOL- they have shut off live coverage in the House.
