Catch of the Day

House Floor today:

Greg Walden (R-OR): ...some of the conferees were not available to meet because they weren't exactly in the country. So that wasn't going to happen until we were both back in session. Now I believe the State of the Union was Tuesday night the 24th; I believe that's the day that the Senate came back...

Rob Andrews (D-NJ): Would the Gentleman yield?

Walden: Sure.

Andrews: Is the Gentleman asserting that the Senate was in recess until January 24?

Walden: I believe it was.

Andrews: That means the Senate...the Gentleman must support President Obama's appointments to the Labor --

Walden: Well, I reclaim my time. That's cute and clever. That's not -- you know and I know that's not exactly the same issue...

  1. Thanks for posting this. *IF* the GOP tries to make a campaign issue of the recess appointments, we can handily go back to these posts to refute them.
