Senate Democrats: Work Is Too Hard So Why Bother?

Yesterday I mentioned that Senate Democrats were punting on producing a budget for the 3rd straight year. Now, via Ed Morrissey from Guy Benson comes this photo

Ed explains

This picture comes from yesterday’s so-called “mark-up session” of the Senate Budget Committee, a meeting which chair Kent Conrad helpfully promoted by declaring that he wouldn’t allow any votes to be taken on budgets. That turned the meeting into nothing more than a discussion forum, one that Conrad’s colleagues decided to skip. The picture, taken by a Republican staffer at the meeting, shows all 11 Republicans sitting on the far side of the table —and almost no Democrats in their chairs…

Apparently, even pretend governance is hard.

    So, I guess we don’t have to wonder any longer how and why the Roman Republic failed. We are watching it happen right now, in living color. So long as they are fed and paid, the lawmakers will be more than happy to blather to themselves self importantly while dictator Obama rules. Make no mistake, it is both the republicans and the democrats who have abdicated all power to the executive.

  2. Damned right, W.C., both are at fault (some more than others, but, few are innocent). This Republic’s government has become a sham.

    Oh, I’m certain, certain! that this was just a demagogic ploy by the mean ol’ Republicans, and the Democrats were actually all there, and this picture was just taken when they got up for a group bathroom break.

    Exactly Dana. It is a Republican ploy to destroy the good image of Democrats by keeping them from doing their Constitutional and legally binding duty to produce a budget for the United States for the last 3 years.

    Heck, I bet those aren’t even Republicans in the photo. I bet the photo is photoshopped flipped.. such that we are really looking at the solidly dedicated Democrats trying to do their Godly jobs. But, as we know, Republicans don’t even like college women working\talking at the capitol.
