    without a filibuster vote?

    What I was trying to point out is the Republicans are bitter assholes who have ginned up excuses to hate everything. In the case of blocking confirmations the specific issue is likely (though probably not exclusively) tied to Robert Bork.

    What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

      for a Defense Secretary nominee.  There are still people in the Republican party who believe he got a raw deal.  The country got a really lucky break when that man's confirmation for SecDef was defeated.
