    do you think its appropriate to filibuster EVERY single nominee to lead a federal agency, so as to prevent the agency from functioning?

    you really think 41 Senators should have the power to prevent an entire agency of the Federal government, from functioning?????

    that's no democracy, that's a dictatorship by the minority.

    when you play that game, don't cry when someone plays a better hand.
    Obama broke the law.

    The Libbos didn't seem to mind when the Democrats did it.

    I think the whole idea of Congress wasting it's time (months sometimes) holding hearings about filling some position is a waste of their time and our money. Does the Constitution cover these hearings? Probably just "guy rules" to make the game more fun. What CEO doesn't have the power to hire and fire? The axe falls on him if it's a mistake...remember Brownie?

    It's called the Constitution of the United States...Try reading it some time instead of always trying to change it.

    It is the law of the land. And I have posted it several times. I will not continue to re-post the same ****, I have already posted just so you can ignore it. Now either pull from what I have already offered to you, or just admit that you have no clue as to what you are talking about.

    Maggie, I usually enjoy your posts, as they are often informed, and have wit, etc. But here you screwed up. A CEO, if they fail, face not only a Board of Directors, and Shareholders, but most importantly, profits via customers voting with their dollars. Bad companies go out of business. Survival of the fittest, aka Capitalism, is supposed to take care of that for us, at least when gubmit doesn't muck it up.

    But bad government ? Guess who gets screwed BOHICA ...... and you cannot just take your business somewhere else. The phrase "absolute power corrupts absolutely" is primarily based in teh shenanigans of too much political power. We should be grateful for the checks and balances, the hearings, the pontificating in front of a camera. Without it, there isn't enough vaseline for either of us to survive.
