House Republicans Want a Vote!
Posted by Ryan on August 1, 2008
After the Dems decided to start a five-week vacation, about 40 or so House Republicans, led by Mike Pence, stayed in the House chamber after the Dems adjourned to make a point about the Republican’s determination to get a drilling bill up for a vote. On her way out San Fran Nan had the lights turned off, the microphones turned off, and the C-SPAN cameras to be turned off as well. Classy broad, that Pelosi!
The House Republicans sent a letter to President Bush to call the Congress back into session until a vote is taken. President Bush was busy around 12:10pm this afternoon calling in to the Rush Limbaugh Show, congratulating Maha Rushie on 20 years of broadcast excellence. Bush 41 and Jeb also got on the line.
The House Republicans are showing leadership, demonstrating good politics, all while looking like the victim of Pelosi’s hard-handed tactics which are getting in the way of the people’s business. I hope they can keep this up until Election Day; this is good stuff!
