  •  The obvious question here... (0+ / 0-)

    I haven't seen anyone present a reason why the GOP is holding up these appointments.  There has to be something big besides just being assholes or pulling Obama's/democrat's chain.

    If these are held up long enough, would there be a chance that if the repubs got in power in the Senate or recaptured the WH, these appointments would be null and void?

    Not sure how this works, but seems there has to be a reason the repubs are doing this other than just being a bunch of crazies (not saying they aren't, of course :-).

      the same one the entire GOP is using now: "this isn't the time to talk about such petty things when the economy is in a crisis".

      At which point the media just move on to the next question.

      When America makes better buses, they'll buy them.

        But....one has to wonder, y'know?

        They have to have some sinister reason for holding up these appointments other than just being obstructionists.

        But, then...hey, maybe not.

        •  It gives them two advantages: (0+ / 0-)

          it makes the dems look bad. "They never get anything done".

          And, when they retake the reins, they get to nominate the crazies they prefer.

          How far to the right do the Dems have to move before you stop calling them Dems?
