Republicans are on self-destruct. This is another move in that direction. It is more and more obvious to the average American that hurting Obama is more important to them than helping the country.

Re Patricia Millet nominee for U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. the following spoken by "wacko bird fraud" (republicants' words) Ted (Jessie Helms) Cruz:

“Thank you Mr. Chairman. Ms. Millett thank you for being here. Thank you for your able testimony. You and I have known each other a long time. And you are a talented and skilled appellate advocate. You are someone who has earned high respect in the Supreme Court bar, which is a community where earning respect there means something. And so I congratulate you on your nomination and your able testimony this morning.

... So I thank you for being here, and I think it is regrettable the overall context of this dispute, which is as I said irrespective of your very fine professional qualifications. Thank you."

Republicans would like to keep Acting Director Edward DeMarco.

The mortgage firms have drawn nearly $190 billion in taxpayer aid since they were taken over by the government in 2008, although they have paid about $146 billion to the Treasury in dividend.

DeMarco has blocked an administration proposal to allow Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to reduce principal on mortgages for so-called underwater homeowners.

State attorneys general, and homeowner and consumer advocacy groups have campaigned for months for the White House to push Watt's confirmation, arguing that DeMarco has not embraced programs that could help borrowers having trouble making mortgage payments.

Republicans can count on the acting head to continue with policies designed to break the backs of Middle Class homeowners victimized by the Bush Economic Collapse and Financial Fallout in 2008.

Well, sure.

We have a Republican congressional delegation that
hasn't done a damn thing in five years except
sabotage the economy and defund the Affordable
Care Act some 45 times.

And they still collect their pay
like the pigs at the public trough that
they are. Slurp! Slurp! Free stuff
sure tastes good!

Complete parasitism....like Michelle Bachmann.

Somebody has to stop him.
Try a bit of self-immolation on the East Lawn. That might delay him for a moment or two.

The Republicans are blocking one appointee per minute, and will continue until they get permission from the State Department to interview 15 survivors from Benghazi. It is not rocket science. They are not getting the cooperation they need from the Administration, so severe measures are needed. They are determined, and will continue until 2017 if necessary.

Every WhiteHouse posting is an AGENDA, strategic appointment. The MSM is prevented from naming the risk and evil to this nation. Everyone that seeks his audience lies, but, he knows nothing about the cost or liability. It is classic PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY.

They are reminding us all of their obstructionism, their Party of No and their refusal to be the adults in the room.

before Benghazi.
