Responding to a question from the audience, Wilson said Obama's call for Congress to raise the debt ceiling by $1.2 trillion next month is "disingenuous."Nice find. But Neil didn't stop there; see the comments in the above posts, but there were several others, including one by Michele Bachmann. Granted, none of them are in a press release slamming the president for the appointments, as is the one that I had yesterday, but still, nice catch!
"He wanted us to approve it before Jan. 15," Wilson said. "Congress doesn't return from recess until Jan. 17."
Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC), Dec. 30
Congress isn't in recess? You lie!
And in a related development, the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel's opinion about the recess appointments is out. I'll have more to say about the substance of it later (still reading), but via Nick Baumann the OLC is apparently a late entrant into this little contest, listing entries from Senators Inhofe, Thune, Sessions, Hatch, and Cornyn.
So the CotD goes to Neil K., but for all of us, a hearty: Great catches!
