    Your problem is that GWB was so much better than BHO.

    Now they are both gone.
    When you say Senate approval is part of checks and balances that is correct. But you are essentially saying that it is only checks and balances when they approve the president's nominations, when they don't or block them (all part of the checks and balance just as much as approval is) then you call it obstructionism.

    That's incorrect. All three are well within the rules. The Constitution makes no effort or requirement for any of those outcomes, it just sets the table. Any of the outcomes are equally Constitutional.

    Obama was wrong, so was Bush. There, lets move on.

    Obama stepped in it with this NLRB crap just as we told you progressives when it happened. Now when the rubber meets the road, most that were in here name calling, and mocking us for saying so are no where to be seen...cowards.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Actually, you're critical of all Americans, Presidents included.
