And how did Pete Sessions use his time? Lorelei Kelly of Democracy Arsenal watched 6 hours of the debate, and offers this summary of Pete Sessions' statement:
Pete Sessions kept saying "the Democrat" party (um, Pete, everybody is onto that one)
Time Magazine pulled this quote:
Countered Pete Sessions, a Republican from Texas: "What this resolution is all about is to politically neuter the President of the United States. It is about trying to do something that is politics, not policy."
I guess that's one area where our Pete is an expert, resorting to politics when you can't think of a good policy. His plan? Stick with the President, even when he's wrong, (as long as it's a Republican president, of course), and keep using that poll-tested, gramatically incorrect phrase "Democrat Party."
The final vote is scheduled for Friday.
