Congress to create good new laws out of Congress, and he's confirmed the long-running rule of 'Me, me, me!'. It's all about him, him, him. He's pathetic and he's ruined his reputation. I look at him now, and I don't think basketball, I think 'tubby, tubby, tubby in a bathtub', in other words, he's a joke. Now in the future, when he wants to act on truly something serious, he's not going to be viewed that way, he's going to viewed as a big joke, which, IMHO, he is.

I wonder about his stupid comment about prior approvals by the Congress in approvals of promotions, and how they were enacted before his stupid hold/actions in holding up promotions. Considering that it wasn't a big deal before, until he made it an idiotic reason for an issue (aren't there lots of ongoing issues?), what happens when a truly serious issue happens in the future?

Good God, what happens if we really have a serious issue in the future, and someone like him is there? Congress, and America can't afford such a distraction, such a method to hold up critical bills.

I also wonder if he's going to apologize to these people who's been in limbo land waiting for their promotions, and if whether he's going to pay them the difference in pay that he alone, owns them? He should. I hope that my Congressperson sponsors a resolution that he alone, tubby, will pay all of these people their pay difference? To be honest, I hope that all of these people jointly sue him. Sure, being a member of Congress probably will absolve him but still, they need to send this POS a message.

I agree, Schumer should go ahead with the temporary rules change anyway. patphil Nov 28 #14
If Tuberville actually backs down, it's unlikely Schumer would have the votes to push the change. tritsofme Nov 29 #25
