Uncivil Rights

A BLOG rife with wit, sarcasm, and the endless joy which comes from taunting the socialistic and unpatriotic liberal left. Logical thoughts and musings ONLY need reply...unless you're really, really funny. You have the Uncivil Right to be an IDIOT. "Give me LIBERTY, or give me DEATH!"

More Democratic Hypocrisy (Does it ever end?)

The Nuclear Option

Let me get this straight.

The constitution presupposes 51 ayes to confirm a judicial nomination.

It takes 51 votes to enact a Senate rule.

If one party wants to delay or eliminate a vote or discussion on a particular topic or nomination, that party utilizes a filibuster.

Robert Byrd changed a Senate rule in 1979 with 51 ayes. That rule changed the needed votes to end a filibuster from 67 ayes to 60 ayes.

A filibuster is a Senate rule, and it takes 60 votes to end a filibuster.

Therefore, Democrats are, in essence, making Bush’s judicial nominations receive 60 ayes for confirmation.

Democrats are, therefore, violating the constitution.
