  •  I am still waiting for another 200 appointments (0+ / 0-)

    GOP obstructions is one thing. The other is if Democrats can actually govern. I think it is time to fill positions and govern.

    •  according to CHuck Shumer on MTP there are 77 (0+ / 0-)

      positions that remain in limbo. He pointed out that if the Republcians, the party of 'Hell, no' would act on bringing them to the floor for vote the President would not need to make recess appointments. This is is not the failure of the President to make them it is the failure of the opposition to allow the Senate to operate as it is supposed to.

      IT makes little sense to make them for a few months only to lose them if the 2010 elections change the balance of power. Another reason for the voters to make sure that doesn't happen.

      THis President understands the concept of moving on.
