If they are good nominees they will help the president be a success, if they are bad nominees, the president will suffer from those choices. But what the filibuster did or even the threat of it usually brought a compromise on some other piece of legislation or at least a vote. But those days are gone, leaders such a Mitchell and Dashle on one side and Lott and Dole on the other, leaders who would work together are no more. We have a couple of partisan hacks who place party way above country, at least in my opinion. One was willing to filibuster everything to prevent anything the Democrats wanted and hence Reid finally doing the nuclear thing. Reid has tabled well over 200 bills passed by the house instead of debating them and voting on them. He says some contain poison pills, but the senate has the power to add anything to those bills, to delete anything, to change anything and to amend them.

    Who or which side started all this junk, I don't know. But as of today, Reid has the upper hand. Now he goes back to 60 votes just to introduce legislation and bring a bill to the floor. The Washington scene today is crazy as all get out. Check this out:

    Election year a drag on productivity in Senate
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Too bad Boehner can't be impeached for failing to do his job.

    No.

    But the fact that he knew impeachment was coming drove him from office.

    He refuses to bring anything to a vote unless he has a majority of republicans which he never does on anything relevant and its resulted in a no compromise, do nothing congress. Remember when they used to be called the 'rubber stamp' congress? lol


    People have a lot less faith in congress to do their job than they do Obama....

    Obama - 53.4% disapprove

    Congress - 77.3% disapprove

    Impeachment doesn't remove a president from office.

    Actually, I just saw that in a recent poll 33% thought Obama was the worst modern President. He was the clear winner.

    Correct, but conviction in the Senate results in automatic removal from office.
