  •  Not making it a major political issue -- (7+ / 0-)

    after all, they are literally crippling the functions of the Executive and Judiciary with this, actually threatening the well-being of the nation -- doesn't help either.

    On the true bipartisan issues held dear by both Party's leaderships: trade agreements which hand over even more power to Corporations; the Eternal War on Everywhere; the primacy of Wall Street, there's no threat to that kind of unity if the President were to attack the Republicans on their appointment obstruction.

    This "blame the republicans for fighting, when we don't" thing is getting a bit old. Why Reid hasn't been read the riot act for letting the filibuster go on, by the President and the House and Senate Dem caucus.... there's no convincing, and honorable, explanation for that.

    You don't bring a chessboard to a gunfight.
