View Diary: Your help needed! Boehner denies national honor to "the last doughboy" (139 comments)

  •  Assume he's being buried at Arlington anyway (4+ / 0-)

    Without subtracting from a burial at Arlington, lying in state at the Capitol building is a special honor, well deserved in this case.

    Disgusting, but not surprising that Reid would support Boehner.  Reid is such a sad creature of the DC bubble, completely out of touch with reality.

    •  Reid doesn't support the Orange Boner (0+ / 0-)

      Reid pulled the resolution from the Senate schedule because it has to pass both houses to succeed. It's simply a waste of time for the Senate to vote on anything that won't be passed in the House because Boner refused to put the resolution on the schedule. He can do that, the asshat.

        has to vote on it.  Let the public see who supports it and who doesn't.

          If Boner comes around, Reid will reschedule.
          I haven't reviewed today's Senate schedule, but a typical Friday schedule is as light as possible so that everyone can leave asap.

          Congress works 2 1/2 days a week tops and takes 4 months off.

          Then they lie about teachers leaving work at 2:30, taking 3 months off, and getting paid as much as a Congresscritter as they tee off during their afternoon round of golf.

          Boner is a  black hole.

            If you changed that around to:

            It's simply a waste of time for the House to vote on anything that won't be passed in the Senate

            The House, under the leadership of Speaker Pelosi, should have just played tiddly winks or golfed or something.  

            But they passed over 250 bills, I think, that never passed through the Senate.  They were right to take those bills for a vote, don't you think?
