Juggle ideas国会共和党人在权衡自身的回应,从政府关门的负面想法到反对奥巴马参议院提名。这是我的理解,请各位大侠看看,哪里不妥,欢迎提出建议!

Congressional Republicans are weighing their response, juggling ideas that range from a government shutdown to holding up Obama's nominees in the Senate.原文 juggling ideas,holding up 关键这两个词组的理解,理解好了,翻译就不难了

My comments:

The juggler is the person who can keep more than three, say, balls moving in the air, something very difficult to do for most people.

It takes great hand and eye coordination, to begin with, for anyone to juggle with balls or plates.

Or jobs, for that matter. Ask any woman who juggles household chores with the demands at the office and she’ll tell you so.

Juggling ideas?

Likewise, if you have ideas to juggle, you have more thoughts going through your head than perhaps you can easily manage. You have to keep assessing the pros and cons of each and every idea – before making up your mind as to what exact course of action to take.

And, like it is with juggling plates, it’s no easy task.
