    Unman ... what's unprecedented about it other than it's the first time a black president did it?

    Secret holds, anonymous holds and Senate holds cannot occur until a nominee is voted up from committee. Cordray was not. Dems hold 1 or 2 momber voting majorities in all of the committees. Sooooo, why hasnt his nomination left committee? There arent any parliamnetary procedures Im aware of that can bottle up a nomination in committee without a majority.

    Im all for Cordray going up for a vote, doesnt really matter, but thats how I feel. Vote up or down but this parliamentary bs needs to end.

    Absolutely.... But, then the question is NOT with repubs as much as it is with Reid. Why didn't he schedule a vote then?

    I know you think every thread is about which party to blame, but that's not the case. If it's Reid's fault, fine. Doesn't change anything.

    Oh yes it does...see the argument to date is that Obama was justified due republican defiance. Now that we fin out that the nominee was out of committee and waiting on Reid to schedule a vote, you say it doesn't matter. What a bunch of bull.

    You don't get it. Republicans filibustered the nomination when it came out of committee.

    You can have freedom or you can have tyranny. I choose freedom. Companies that fail should fail. When the courts get involved they should follow established law. Creditors should not be tossed aside with unions elevated.

    I cannot help that you are blind. It is impossible for one who chooses not to see to ever see.
