  •  You know, I've been saying since the Speaker's (0+ / 0-)

    response the other night that one could tell as he spoke that he did NOT have the votes for this in the House.

    Oh, he soldiered on and finished his assignment as quickly as he could get the words out, but clearly there was a gun to his head and nowhere to run.  I was thinking he might burst out in "leg tears" at any minute.

    Now, after putting the vote off once already, he is forced to put it off yet again.  And, I can only guess that if he somehow manages to conjure up something overnight that he can actually pass in the House tomorrow that it is going to be such a convoluted mess that he won't be able to recognize it himself.
