    And I don't mean Obama.

    For fucks fucking sake people, put your god damned raging Id away for a fucking second, stop the selective outrage and get back to being the Reallity Based Party.

    This site has become a god damned embarrassment lately with the OHNOEZ WE R BETRAYED BY TEH TYRANT!!!1!!! fucking lowbrow shit.  This looks like FreeRebublic written in an orange font.

    Grow. the. Fuck. Up.  If you are interested in politics, please join in the discussion.  If you have no fucking clue what you are talking about and just want to rant go back to lurking or get the fuck out.  Fucking hell.  LOOK AT THESE THREADS LATELY!!!  FUCKING LOOK AT THEM!!

    The NLRB is a five member board of appointed members serving five year terms.  It has ALWAYS been bipartisan with a 3-2 partisan makeup, the majority and position of chairman being held by the party of the sitting President of the United States.  It has been this way since the 1940's.

    This is why Bush nominated democrat Dennis Walsh.  This is why CLinton nominated Republicans Charles Cohen and Robert Brame.  This is why Ronald Reagan appointed Democrats Patricia Diaz Dennis, Mary Cracraft and Dennis Devaney.

    This is how it has ALWAYS been.  This is why Obama is doing this.

    Once again he is acting responsibly within the traditions of how the Executive Branch has operated for generations and once again the people that think politics is some derivative of Human Cockfighting and KNOW NOTHING about what they are basing their indignant opinions upon look like juvenile ass clowns.

      In all your fanboi enthusiasm to defend this Administration's appointment of labor hating Republicans (and btw, the two Democrats aren't for Labor either) to the NLRB, you end up being just wrong in your frothing ranting.

      There's been plenty of non 3-2 NLRB's, I believe there was even a 4-1 (Republican favor, of course) in the 50's.

      It's not a matter of law, the President can pick whoever he wants for the NLRB, of whatever party.

      One would HOPE a Democratic President, who was endorsed by all major unions, would pick labor supporting candidates for the board.  But he picks Republicans, and the Democrats he picks worked for the friggin' U.S. Chamber of Commerce or were big time CEO's themselves.

      You've rather embarrassed yourself in this entire thread, insulting people, ranting, raving, and throwing HR"s around.

      Maybe some time spent in contemplation would help?

        And if you can find one HR I have handed out in this thread please point it out to me, you liar.  Also, you should learn the rules of the site before you start handing out retaliatory HRs.  Or don't.  I don't care really.

        Go play in your hashtag poutrage-a-thon diaries... showcase your leftier-than-thou whatever you want to do Rick.  I have no ability to stop you nor would I give a shit to do so if I did.

        You are exactly the kind of person I was referencing.  I am more than happy to be an embarrassment to you because the feeling could not POSSIBLY be more mutual.  I'm glad we can agree on this.

        If you log in to this site everyday to yell out clouds and root out the sycophantic Obama cabal then go do it on someone who either cares, will join in the puerility or, at the very least, does not consider you a joke.  I do not fit any of those categories.
