President Obama has found his spine and he is standing up straight and tall for the American people by appointing 15 people during the Senate’s recess! MEAOW!
In the New York Times article: Obama Bypasses Senate Process, Filling 15 Posts, President Obama is quoted as saying in a statement:
“The United States Senate has the responsibility to approve or disprove of my nominees…But, if, in the interest of scoring political points, Republicans in the Senate refuse to exercise that responsibility, I must act in the interest of the American people and exercise my authority to fill these positions on an interim basis.”
Stop the Log Jam in Congress & the Senate:
It is a shame when paid representatives of the people in the Senate & Congress decide to just play politics and obstruct positive progress for all Americans by:
- Only voting NO even if the legislation is good for all Americans
- Holding up important judicial appointments
- Holding up important Homeland Security appointments
- Holding up any appointment that President Obama wants because they want to stop progress
When G. W. Bush was President, Democrats were more civil and gave his proposed appointees a hearing. The Republicans tactics seem to be stall, stall, stall, stall, no, no, no, no. This is unacceptable.
Yet, who loses because of their childish actions? The American people!
President Obama has every right to exert his power in the interest of the American people, especially when one party is determined to act purely out of political partisanship by obstructing needed change in this country instead of working towards improving the common interests of Americans.
What will it take to bring people together on both sides of the aisle to work together?
CBS News journalist Bob Schieffer on Face The Nation corrects Jim DiMint when he quotes polls regarding the number of people in America who want Health Care. Mr. DiMint continues to ram talking points down the throats of listeners that are meant to inflame others and not give real information.
DiMint calls the Tea Party Movement an “American Awakening.” Jim DiMint is egging people on. Let’s remember that a lot of the information Tea Partiers receive from Fox News is purposely twisted and untrue to scare people. Mr. DiMint is bent on just gaining seats in November for Republicans, and until then it is clear that he only wants to confuse and anger voters with his inflammatory rhetoric.
Also, Mr. DiMint always includes the word “freedom” sprinkled in his speech.
I guess he thinks if he says “Freedom,” then everything else he says will be OK.
Also, it seems the Republicans refuse to call Health Care Reform, Health Care Reform. They try to misname it and attack it by saying things like:
“Obamacare” or when referring to Health Care Bills under Clinton as “HillaryCare.” This is a horrible tactic that is used solely to anger people and confuse them about Health Care Reform. It is disgusting. (Coughing up a hairball now)
Republican Senator DiMint of South Carolina claims, “We’re still looking into ways to work with the President…”
MEAOW! Actions speak louder than words Mr. DiMint. We’ll believe it when we actually see you walking the talk!
