So now Donna Brazil says it’s a good and healthy thing for Obama to inject race into the campaign.

Brazil remains a racist at heart.

Then Gergan has to agree. Democrats have hidden agendas and claim they don’t.

Tommy slams Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld saying that Barry is looking for judgment and not experience in a VP. (Tommy, you are not fit to tie the shoes of these men.) Lindsey says that Barry is the worst prepared person to be C-in-Chief at a time of war (and Tommy starts laughing again). John will put the country first on this decision as with all his decisions.

That just the schedule of Senate pro forma sessions (all "recess" instead of "adjourn" simply means the Senate will stay on the same legislative day -- August 1 -- throughout), with a link to confirm that there will be no recess more than "X" days in length.

The objective of that is to prevent the president from making any recess appointments.

The Republicans (actually, any single Senator) have the power to object. There being no objection, the schedule was agreed to.

The Democrat leadership of the Senate has been filling extended breaks in legislative action with pro forma sessions (with the same purpose) for a year or more.

Lieberman is leaving cards on the table too...

The only plus in his column is that he's a staunch defender of Israel. Other than that... he's just another blood-sucking socialist.

Drilling in our own country involves more than just money.

Money is nice.

But it would be even nicer not to be dependent on oil from the middle east and to be able to tell those arabs to sell sand ... if they could. Florida might buy some.

I didn’t think this was new news.

((((

The point, Morgan, is that it did not make “the news” at all! Days of coverage of the intent of a McCain ad, and no coverage of the Senate’s lack of ethical behavior.

One of the reasons that the Republicans stayed in the House was because there is a ‘rule’? that both Houses have to agree on what happens when they leave a session, and since the Senate is going to continue to have sessions there was no ‘agreement between the Houses.”

True reporters of Congressional affairs should have at least mentioned this development.

Remember the scolding nasty media coverage of President Bush going on a month-long vacation in the summer of 2001!

Oh, I’m still watch Reliable Sources, apologize to Blitzer for earlier referencing his show, post 167;

LATE EDITION (CNN) :

here’s Reliable Sources (CNN):

We’ll never know the real reason Obama canceled his trip to visit the troops in Germany.

Who needs to know what a gutless man Obama is?

I’m with you Fish, regarding the Main Street Republicans, they need to choose sides. Made me really mad when Romney joined this group of pansies.
They are utterly lacking in conviction and courage!
Who is running against Castle, let’s give his R opponent some dough!
Wishful thinking, there probably isn’t anyone.

Palin is awesome, and she is doing great things in Alaska, but she also has a new baby with health problems.

Anna Marie Cox?, a pundit on with Howie Kurtz said “she has her own scandals in Alaska” as a reason to discount her for Veep. I HATE the way leftist just throw out slander as fact constantly.

I was impressed, thought she handled herself well along with taking care of 4 kids. She has to be one busy lady.

....................

Piglosi on Stephy did leave her self wide open with some pretty testy questions from Stephy who in all fairness did grill her pretty good.(she's having a bad makeup day as well)

When asked why she absolutely won't give a vote on drilling for the 8th time she finally blurted out "because the President won't do this or that".

That statement alone should kill her off. She is refusing a vote in the people's House of Congress not because of the merits or non-merits of the issue, stand alone; but because of a very political bias against GW. This should sink her credibility if she even had any. Key statement here, hope others catch it as well.

Understood, and I agree.

Being a Democrat means never having to say you’re sorry.

In this case the MSM helps them avoid blame, once again.

I have never heard so many lies, changing of topics, obfuscations,etc. Piglosi used every trick in the book to change the venue but still could not dissuade Stephy. guess he knows when to get straight and when to go back to the leftward leaning land of the DBM.

I think that in Juan opinion Barak Obama stands for a lot of stereo type issues that Juan feels should not define a black person in America in 2008.

I may not agree with Juan politics but I do believe he believes in them and also that there should be a level playing field and that in 2008 affirmative action in the form that many far left democrats support it does harm to the black population not help it.

Yeah but the key statement bu her on the interview was her blaming GW for her refusal to allow an up or down vote on drilling. She is toast if our side plays this one up.

She stated that since GW does this or that she won't allow a vote on drilling. sorry Nancy it doesn't work that way in the people's house.

-- ... both Houses have to agree on what happens when they leave a session, and since the Senate is going to continue to have sessions there was no "agreement between the Houses." --

Both chambers voted on and approved an adjournment resolution (H.Con.Res.398 - usually pass on voice vote, this one was 48-40 in the Senate), and this bit of multiple "pro forma sessions" by the Senate has been done at least 4 times (working from memory) since last year. Once in between the 1st and second sessions of the 110th Congress (Dec '07 - Jan 08), the break BEFORE that (Thanksgiving '07), and each break in 2008 (e.g., the 4th of July break).

Including being gutless about his REAL LEGAL NAME.

This is the week we should get the words "BARRY SOETORO" out there.

Here's a new article which interviews Barry Soetoro Obama's first grade teacher.

It concludes thusly:

Still, I'm drawn to the idea of an American president who can wear a sarong with style, and who feels nostalgic when he hears the call to prayer. And wouldn't it be fun if the White House started serving rendang and gado-gado at state dinners?
