    At this point ANY POLITICIAN trying to bring up that point should be laughed out of the room , I can see how that is a good process to pick nominees , but since senators are refusing to pick anyone , then the president is still obligated to do his job and keep the judiciary functional , it is not all about the DC bubble boys after all

    I stopped trying to figure out why obama and the dems cater to this foolishness  , I do not like referring to them as spineless sell out's , but what other verbal options do we have at this point?

    DO YOUR FREAKIN JOBS FOLKS

    THAT IS NOT TO MUCH TO ASK

    And in the process , embarrass the crap out of the GOP do nothing congress , either that or go down in flames along with them
     

    •  The Republican minority can get away with this (4+ / 0-)

      because the Democratic majority are willing to allow them to get away with this -just as Patango states.  The Majority Leader is compliant.

      Tradition.  Comity.  Deference.  Collegiality,

      In the face of outright and open obstruction it looks more like weakness, gullability fear, timidity, and fear.

      Goddamnit this is getting really old....about 1200-1300 days old to be more precise.
