  •  Because they are scorpions (0+ / 0-)

    I'm thinking we need to start using this or something similar to refer to Republicans. The derogatory names we've used are inadequate.

    •  I agree (0+ / 0-)

      but I still don't understand on what basis the recess appointment was struck down as unconstitutional

      •   They weren't in formal recess............... (0+ / 0-)

        they had all left town except for one Rethug, on a rotating basis, who would gavel the body into order every day only to gavel it closed again. So they were not completely in recess.

        My argument is that since the Senate did not vote reverse BHO's appointments the next day, it was an actual recess. Of course, I was not arguing the case in court.
