    GOP Begins Judge Blockade : Roll Call News

    How can we tell the difference. They've been anti-American traitors for the past 3 1/2 years. What's the difference now?

    They should be brought up on charges of treason but hey, the rw's just love these crooks.

    You would find that the concept of Congressional checks and balances is a Constitutional mandate if you ever got beyond Civics and socialism 101. Some would say however that evidence indicates the Obama administration is engaging in a criminal conspiracy designed to thwart Congress's attempt to get to the bottom of the Fast/Furious debacle involving the Attorney General.

    How DARE those Republicans follow the Constitution! I mean it's like they actually support it or something.

    Either way, I'll bet this is somehow rooted in racism!

    Remind us again how you were opposed in 2001 2002 when the Democrats controlled the Senate and refused to vote on any Judge appointments by Bush.

    It is a practice that BOTH sides use as established by the article. I don't recall the the left complaining when the Dems used it in 2008. I don't recall any complaints from the left when in 2001 through 2002 the Democrats with a one vote majority used that majority to shut down all appointment confirmation hearings.

    Will the left ever stop whining about the "unfairness" of only controlling 2/3 of the federal government? The words "bipartisanship" and "cooperate" in a political sense translate to Republicans caving to every democrat party demand.

    GOP Judges are required to answer one question in order to pass the GOP Judge test. They can otherwise be as stupid as a rock. Can you guess the question? Yep, that's it. "Are corporations people?" Answer must be 'yes.' How else will power manage the working class.

    "Not only does there seem to be widespread social fragmentation and disillusionment with democracy in the United States, but the possibility of reversing this sense of alienation appears to many of us to be already lost. Any democratic president who wants to institute the desperately needed reforms in health, welfare and the environment faces one of two options. He can stick by his reform program and suffer a loss of public confidence through orchestrated campaigns to publicly portray him as 'too liberal' and ineffectual (the Carter image) or too indecisive or sexually indiscreet (the Clinton image). Alternatively, a reforming democratic president can move further to the Right, forget his promises and become part of the propaganda campaign. Given the history of democratic propaganda in the United States, some of us doubt that another Roosevelt or New Deal is possible. The political system is now so attuned to business interests that this kind of reformer could no longer institute the substantial health, welfare, education, environmental and employment reforms the country needs." Andrew Lohrey
