    The "other side" has been obstructing for 4 solid years, under cover of a compliant media which has neglected reporting on this story during that time. Complaining that obstructed vacancies are being filled too fast would point out the obstruction in the first place. Elections have consequences. Fighting Executive appointments has zero utility after the Executive wins reelection, unless the appointments being considered are truly ideologically unpalatable to one or the other side. So thank you Mitt Romney for running the worst national campaign in the history of the Presidency, and perhaps saving the nation in the process.
