Republicans vs. The Constitution: "We have the votes" 

As WaPo reminds us (under the truly lovely headline, "Unexpectedly, Capitol Hill Democrats Stand Firm"):

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee's decision last week to postpone a vote on Bolton for at least three weeks -- after the chairman said there were enough votes to endorse him -- was the most dramatic example yet of Democrats' persistence and resilience.
(via WaPo)

Republicans said they had the votes on Bolton, too, and they didn't.

So we would believe they have the votes on the nuclear option why, exactly? Because they said so?
