Skip to comments.Live Thread: Senate Amnesty Debate (CRITICAL 2ND CLOTURE VOTE TODAY!) Woo hoo!! It's DEAD!!
Posted on 06/28/2007 6:25:57 AM PDT by truthkeeper
Here we are again my friends, hopefully for the last debate thread on this particular monstrous legislation. Proceedings are supposed to begin at 9:30 a.m. EST, with the cloture vote being taken at 10:30 a.m.
On a personal note, you've all been wonderful in your passion, vigilance, and commitment to the principles on which our country was founded. If I have to be in a foxhole, I want to be in it with you guys.
Debate won't continue- Reid will remove the bill from consideration, effectively killing it. There are other bills the Senate needs to consider.
Sen. Smith [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
I’m told has decided to switch his vote to pro-cloture.

Remember this, Oregon.
He is a liar.
I am SO angry right now. I just can’t believe this. If this goes forward, I just don’t know what I’m going to do....
Arlen Dumpster is asking senators to vote for cloture and then vote against the final bill. This was the tactic preferred by Jorge Bush’s gang in the WH.
Hopefully, senators know that the rest of us see through this nonsense.
Breaking news. NOT. Dingy Harry is speaking on the floor.
“Revolution is the Solution”!!!!
The hardest he ever worked was squeezing out of that sinking, ‘69 Oldsmobile...
Anyone know how Lieberman will vote?
“Senate phone system has CRASHED due to influx of calls!!!!”
I got through on my second try just now.
Every Democrat I personally know is against this bill. Haitian immgrant, left wing feminist -- against amnesty. Christian teachers union member, against amnesty. Wealthy Jewish Democrat and mommy, against amnesty ("C" school -- Florida grading system -- two blocks from her multi-million dollar home ruined in part by kids that don't speak English). Etc. Etc.
Little Harry Reid taking us back to his little small town roots...booooooo
Spector thinks he’s talking to kids!
He said: vote FOR cloture then vote AGAINST the bill LATER!
Every child in the country knows the difference by now!
I am referring to calls to credit card companies, stores, etc. You get an automatic menu of numbers to press for various things. It usually begins with whether you want English or not. And if you want English, you have to press “2”. I have been offended by that for some time.
Jeff Sessions was on C-SPAN with Susan Swain this morning taking phone calls. We couldn’t have a better spokesman. People from all over the country were calling in and praising him.
I’m not too familiar with them being a SAHM, but I know the Senators are always using them. However they communicate.
Exactly. Why are asians, who actually create a lot of wealth in this country due to their dogged ambition and self reliance, be ignored.
Maybe you shouldn’t use the word “shot”. Someone might take you seriously.
On the other hand, Lord Spectre DOES look shot. Death warmed over.
At least 41 nos. But that includes Cochran, who is under intense pressure.
Reid sounds senile. Hey Harry, how’s the investigation of your land deals coming?
He is still better than the alternatives.
All these “teach them a lesson and vote for democrats” people remind me of the scene from Blazing Saddles when the Sheriff first comes to town, “Back off or I will shoot the.....”.
I can’t breathe I am so nervous about this!
Reid does more for the country just stealing money with his crooked land deals than he’ll ever do in DC.
Hey wait... I’m now in favor of this bill now that I just found out it will help Reid’s little friend ‘Tommy’... /what a freaking moron
Only corporate America and a lot of politicans seem to be in favor of it.
I try to watch this mess but get gut sick now. Spectre on and I just have to leave the TV. He says that he knows that the majority of Americans are the silent majority and they are not the ones against the bill and that those speaking up are the minority. What an idiot.
Specter was born in Kansas but has been leeching (sorry, lawyering) in the hellhole of brotherly love since the mid-50’s.
The rest of the state generally dislikes him, and I doubt he will ever come out of his cubbyhole to visit again.
Liar and a bum (and those are his good qualities!)
Why? They are two peas in a pod.
He voted yes before...
Me too... and I have a BAD feeling about this.
Does Reid still call illegal aliens “undocumented Americans?”
Specter says that voting for cloture will allow the bill to be improved. LOL. The small band of “grand bargainers” bypassed the normal senate process, no committee hearings and no cost analysis, and drafted this abomination in secret. They have done everything possible to limit debate and the voices of those who oppose the bill. And now they want to pass a bill that only 26% of the American people support. Is this the US Senate or the Soviet Politburo?
I need to watch that movie.
Appears to be their theme for today...we (the LOUD voices in America) are filled with hate and venom.
I voted for Jorge twice, also. I agree with you. Either Gore or Kerry would have been far worse.
Maybe covering his ass. His abscence is a no vote on cloture but won’t get the dog house treatment from wifey!!!
My Favorite Liberal (Mrs. Gridlock) is even against this bill. It is the first thing we have agreed on in years.
Reid fears for his life:)
saying that a Mexican should go into the “witness protection system” because he’s working on the immigration bill.....and that he gets HATE mail on this.
Yes you should “do something positive that effects everybody in America”: BOOT OUT THE ILLEGALS!
