    I guess then the Dems could borrow all the old Republican speeches while threatening to revive the "nuclear option" to force an up or down vote. Personally, I think that the Dems should pursue judicial appointments with the same single minded zeal shown by conservatives over the last eight years. They will not be able to balance out what GWB has done, but they need to make an effort.

    Looks like Rep Emanuel was a director at Fannie Mae during scandal.

    Many scientists hold the belief the warmer climate/warmer ocean waters have a direct impact on the number and severity of hurricanes.

    There was a discussion on this subject some time back. It seems that those who profess the theory of "global warming" are directly dependent on that pimping for their livelihood.

    I have read nothing or know of no credible individuals who subscribe to the theory of "global warming" as fact. But why is it that you don't hold the head pimps to the same standard they want the rest of us to live to? Oh, they buy ficticious "carbon credits".

    It's a normal climate cycle.

    How many of those scientists say as RFK, Jr. that global warming did cause Katrina in fact and not theory?

    None? Thought so.

    His legal mind was considered sub-par with the sole reason for his "success" being traced back to his loyalty to the President.

    Despite general thoughts, I think that AG Ashcroft, in the end, had the courage to stand up for the American people and that is what lead to his departure.

    Wow, if a conservative said something like that about a minority in a Dem administration he'd probably get called a racist. Good thing Clinton hardly had any so we didn't have to worry about it.

    You are suggesting that President Clinton hardly had any minorities in his administration? Is that correct?

    I think you have a man-crush on me, Danny. I can send you a signed 8x10 glossy if you would like.
