    Democrats are not willing to use the filibuster to wreck the country the way the GOP is.
    And looking specifically at appointments, Democrats are not willing to use the filibuster to block a Republican president's appointments simply because the appointees are Republicans.  

    When the bu$hco mal-administration was in power, I heard some rethug senator bray, "The President deserves his nominee".  I'm not going so far as to agree with that, but I do definitely say that the President deserves an up-or-down vote on his nominee, in a timely fashion.
