I remember when this happended like last year! Funnily, the GOP is still striving not to serve the country, but their one sided agenda of undoing anything that promotes the ideals the democrats hold dear: Labor, consumer protection, fair lending; wall street accountability; banking rules, conservation, ecology and the overall health of the nations 98%. “More for me, none for you,” say the GOP leaders. Over the cliff you will go.

This is pretty lame an argument when the vast majority of these fakes are people that were also blocked by democrats from positions and were also appointed during recess. The president has a right to do this. It is a common practice that becomes necessary when open positions at the various bureaus, boards and comities that are political appointees that the president gets to fill with people he wants. The fact that they are commonly hyper partisan is not usually a reason for denial, they don’t get appointed because the opposing party throws a hissy fit and won’t allow them. Give the democrats some credit, they at least only block those they know have a twisted political agenda.

Way to go GOP…..not that anyone pays attention to history anymore but you clowns will go down as the ultimate obstructionists to ANYTHING you cannot take credit for.

Just what this nation needs…….elitists protecting the uber rich while holding everyone else hostage to their narrow minded, selfish agenda.

They would rather see this nation completely broken as long as they can maintian their riches and never lift a finger to real progress.

They can stand in front of all the flags they want, wear all the lapel flag pins their $1000 suits can hold but they cannot hide the fact that they are the least patriotic of any group one can imagine.

They make a mockery of the nation’s symbol while invoking our ideals and goals. Hypocrites all, with a few exceptions. Olympia Snowe of Maine comes to mind.

Yesterday’s slap in the face to their former leader, Bob Dole, is a classic example. No respect for anything but the almighty $$$ and the power it controls.
