Bush's Summer Hires Targeted
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has a little trick up his sleeve that could spell an end to President Bush's devilish recess appointments of controversial figures like former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton. We hear that over the long August vacation, when those types of summer hires are made, Reid will call the Senate into session just long enough to force the prez to send his nominees who need confirmation to the chamber. The talk is he will hold a quickie "pro forma" session every 10 days, tapping a local senator to run the hall. Senate workers and Republicans are miffed, but Reid is proving that he's the new sheriff in town.Great idea, you don't have to worry about recess appointments if you never go on recess. I can just see Dubya stomping his feet and holding his breath until he turns purple. If Bush is going to act like an adolescent he should be treated like one.
