Bush berates Senate's success

By Libby

The holiday break is over and as the Beltway gets back to business, our Commander Guy is whining that the Senate spoiled his fun.

“In a political maneuver designed to block my ability to make recess appointments, congressional leaders arranged for a senator to come in every three days or so, bang a gavel, wait for about 30 seconds, bang a gavel again, and then leave,” Bush said. “Under the Senate rules, this counts as a full day. If 30 seconds is a full day, no wonder Congress has got a lot of work to do.”

Can our Deceiver-in-Chief get any more ridiculous? As far as I'm concerned, this is the best work the Senate has done since we put them into power in 06.

Clearly, if he's so unhappy about it, Bush had intended to circumvent the confirmation process again with some sneaky recess appointments. I'd suggest the Democrats use that trick again during the Christmas break. It seems to have worked rather well.
