    That they tried to block every nominee bush nominated, regardless of circumstance? Yes. Back that up please.

    As soon as you can point out where I said that.

    Didn't you just restate it? I'm confused what you are asking me to show.

    Re: Senator's Projects Stall Obama Appointees

    Wow, conservatives manage to justify even this. Impressive. Let me summarize.


    One Senator is halting the appointment of every single nominee. A "blanket hold," including key national security positions. This man is literally making America less safe.

    To override him requires a cloture vote: 60 votes to invoke cloture, which starts a 30-hour clock in which no other Senate business can be attended to. EACH appointment would require a cloture vote, so you'd need Republicans to get on board and vote in favor of cloture (no easy task, they've yet to vote in favor of ANYTHING the democrats have tried to do) and it would have to be done 70 times.

    70 * 30 hours = almost 3 months, and that's assuming you have the Senate run 24/7. In reality, we're talking about closer to six months of completely halting the passing of any sort of legislation in this country.

    You see, once cloture is invoked, YOU CAN'T DISCUSS ANYTHING ELSE BUT THAT ONE ISSUE. This man is holding the entire government hostage and it takes literally every Republican vote to stand with him for him to be successful.

    No one man is the 41st vote. All of them are. The entire GOP presence in the Senate is just as guilty.

    Yeah its almost like Senators Landrieu and Nelson taking bribes for their vote on the health plan................

    I can't believe you guys are arguing over judicial appointees being blocked by Senators on one side or another. You know what? BOTH SIDES DO IT. And the people get frakked over because of it.

    I think they call that the spoils of having a majority in the senate and a president on your side...........The problems for the dems is the two justices leaving next are both Liberals so if Obama is in charge the status quo will remain......If a republican some how gets in and the power in the senate changes then conservative will be nominated.......
