The 53-38 vote to move the resolution to full debate fell seven short of the 60 required.
Will someone please explain to me how the minority party is capable of blocking the Gonzales no-confidence vote from going to full debate when the majority party was incapable of stopping the Republican escalation bill will no benchmarks. How is it the Republicans are capable of getting 60 votes for their Iraq War escalation bill, but the Dems are powerless to get enough votes for a simple symbolic declaration.
Maybe its not the senate rules, the Republicans, or even King George. Maybe, just maybe the problem is the dumb dems.
