Perhaps you can illuminate what impact this would have? The first guy wasn't able to, as yet anyway. Did you get your talking point email yet?

FYI - Bush isn't the current POTUS. If you want to travel back in time to sue him go for it, otherwise your comparison is meaningless. Let's stay on topic.

So, essentially the President was calling their bluff, since they were showing up(even though the chambers were empty) just to deny him the appointments he wanted. This whole little issue will die, fortunately, and the comments section on that 'Washington Times' piece was hilarious!
