What benefit do Democrats see in obstructing Trump's Cabinet picks?
Using partisan politics, the Senate Democrats are delaying President Trump's Cabinet picks from taking office. Their slow-walking techniques are an embarrassment and unlikely to succeed in doing anything, yet they continue. Everyone expects the Supreme Court nominee to be treated equally when nominated. Democrats are boycotting hearings, using the rule that at least one person from the opposition be present for a committee vote to be valid.
same thing republicans did with obama...stop him in his tracks. surely, you have figured this out by now? you showed us the way!! and when WE said, what about us, who voted for obama? YOU said, "its repubs job to stop him". so honestly, i dont know what anyone is whining(your word too) about. your guy mitt romney said it, sauce for goose, sauce for gander. maybe if repubs get a dose of their own medicine, they wont be so quick to make us swallow it again. and no, not literally. *sigh*
no, its been a one-way street for too long.we were looking forward to a lot of things, too in 2008,only to be crushed by the wayside. you republicans can reap what you have sown.you hd 8 yrs of obstruction,and proud of it.now u find out how it feels
oh, so youre against eo's? how many your guy have so far, 19??? more??? and whats he doing? whatever the f he likes,thats what. hes not asking anyone. spicer said its his agenda or get out. so tell me how you deride obama....please justify hypocricy
I'm amazed how "holier than thou" the Republicans are trying to be now that their guy is in office. Now we should all come together in harmony? We didn't get a shred of that from them. But now they expect it. They are shameless.
The timing might be poor, but if this nation is to survive, then we need to all move closer to the center. What we are seeing now is the dangerous pendulum effect, which if unchecked will eventually fall off the rails
my neighbors are nice people. they dont listen to alex jones, limbaugh trash. and with the blood lust repubbies have for clinton, if this were true, shed be on trial. unlike ya boy dumpy, who can do whatever he wants...no oversight whatsoever. bums!
trumps own words, and cruz own words. i know people pretend to not get it,"see how stupid lmc is", but im was quoting them. trump said the three million illegals were hillary voters,cruz said democrats support voter fraud. both on national tv.slander
Perhaps they're hoping he might make better choices, and select some folks that aren't part of the Billionaire Boy's Club.
Or perhaps they're doing what their constituents are asking them to do, by phone, by email, by tweet, and by showing up at their offices: block these appointments, because they aren't qualified for the jobs for which they've been put forth.
Just because the Republicans hold a majority doesn't mean the Democrats should just lay back and take it. They have obligations to the folks who elected them.
oh its not feeble, its legion. you should get out more, you might see how we really feel about your sniff sniff. and this sham will be revealed. you have no idea the underworld this cat resides in. none. the p-grabbing should have given it away. gag
Gag, didn't hear any left objections about Bill Clinton & his many escapades. He didn't just talk about it but did at every opportunity but you NEVER hear Dems mention that. It is just pitifully all the Dems have to fight with & wow do they r
They are following the examples they saw across the aisle every single day for eight years. Now the Republicans don't like it any better than the Democrats did. At least the Democratic President was a decent man.
Your opinion of the former President isn't shared by everyone. Most of what Obama wanted, he got - and in hindsight, most of what he got was bad for America. His legacy is debt, unemployment, and a failed foreign policy which gave nukes to Iran..
lies. but what else is new.one thing will be a hollow victory--when trump voters lose the healthcare and foodstamps they rely on. let them go without gvt.let trump business take care of them. he wont even know your NAME.
Leslie you not only wont lose anything, you will gain. Healthcare will be cheaper and better for one thing. Even Obama admitted that ACA had some problems that needed fixing. Wait and see awhile before you wear out the panic button.
