I seem to recall the Democrats keeping a senator in the Senate chamber 24/7 during the recess in order to prevent Bush from making a recess appointment.

I imagine our GOP Senators do not want to be bothered by such trivial pursuits.

Didn’t this happen after the democrats took control?

It’s a completely different situation when you don’t have control.

It is not a matter of the Senate Republicans not wanting to be bothered. When the Democrats kept the Senate in session, they had a majority and could legitimately take that action.
