A palpable air of hypocrisy hangs over the Senate these days. Seeking to distract attention from President Obama’s unconstitutional “recess” appointments — not to mention the failure of his economic policies — Democrats disingenuously accuse Republicans of “obstructing” the president’s judicial nominees.
In an attempt to create the perception of Republican resistance, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev), has taken the extraordinary step of scheduling contentious cloture votes for 17 nominees who were otherwise on the normal path to routine confirmation, claiming “delay for delay’s sake.”
Of course, these desperate claims are entirely false: the Senate has already confirmed more of President Obama’s nominees (129) than it did during President George W. Bush’s entire second term (120), and has done so at an almost identical pace (average of 218 and 211 days, respectively, from nomination to confirmation). Indeed, not long ago Reid acknowledged that the Senate has “done a good job on nominations,” and a Judiciary Committee Democrat recently noted that we have been “speeding up the confirmation of judges.”
Claims of Republican obstruction are not only demonstrably false, they are highly hypocritical. The very Democrats now seeking to manufacture confirmation controversy personally devised and carried out a systematic effort to block President Bush’s judicial nominees through an unprecedented use of the Senate filibuster.
It is a matter of historical record that beginning in 2001, Senate Democrats dramatically changed the confirmation process. Throughout the Bush administration, Democrats actively sought to block numerous judicial nominees, forcing more than 30 cloture votes as Republicans tried to end persistent Democratic filibuster efforts.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), voted against cloture a record-setting 27 times. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), cast 26 votes to filibuster Bush nominees and, in 2003, defiantly declared:“Yes, we are blocking judges by filibuster. That is part of the hallowed process around here.”

I just did a search on Sen. Mike Lee (the guy who did that crybaby rant piece there that of course doesn't disprove anything I've posted) and I found this:

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865588089/...

"On Lee, the poll found that 57 percent of Utahns believe he should be 'more willing to compromise' in his fight, compared with 43 percent who said he should continue to 'stand by his principles.'

In a Deseret News/KSL poll conducted Oct. 3 by Dan Jones & Associates, 56 percent of Utahns said it was not worth shutting down the government as part of the effort to repeal the health care law, while 37 percent said it was.

Both polls also looked at Lee's favorability rating. The BYU poll found that the junior senator's favorability declined from 50 percent in June to 40 percent in October. Forty-three percent approved of Lee in the Deseret News/KSL poll."

So that means:

1) A majority of his own constituents believe he should compromise

2) A majority of his own constituents believe the the repeal of Obamacare is NOT worth shutting down the government over.

AND ...

3) His favorability has dropped 10 points because he refuses to listen to either of the people above.

As ShitForBrains101 said over and over before his party got their asses beat in November ...

I CAN'T WAIT TO VOTE!!!

Here's more proof that Republicans and the pathetic conservative media (who lied to you about the election results this past November) are running around LYING (again) saying that "Democrats refused to compromise!!!"
It's REPUBLICANS who told democrats that they didn't want to negotiate on the budget via a bicameral conference committee each and every one of the 19 times they proposed it since the Spring.
Can any conservatives tell me if Fox "news" told you that?
Here ... I'll even give you the 19 times, ready?
1) 4/23 Senator Reid requested unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator Toomey blocked.
2) 5/6 Senator Reid requested unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator Cruz blocked.
3) 5/7 Senator Murray requested unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator McConnell blocked.
4) 5/8 Senator Warner asked unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator McConnell blocked.
5) 5/9 Senator Murray asked unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator McConnell blocked.
6) 5/14 Senator Warner asked unanimous consent to go to conference, and Senator McConnell blocked.
7) 5/15 Senator Wyden asked unanimous consent to go to conference, and Senator McConnell blocked.
8) 5/16 Senator Murray asked unanimous consent to go to conference, and Senator Lee blocked.
9) 5/21 Senator Murray asked unanimous consent to go to conference, and Senator Paul blocked.
10) 5/22 Senator Kaine asked unanimous consent to go to conference, and Senator Rubio blocked.
11) 5/23 Senator McCaskill asked unanimous consent to go to conference, and Senator Lee blocked.
12) 6/4 Senator Murray asked unanimous consent to go to conference, and Senator Rubio blocked.
13) 6/12 Senator Kaine asked unanimous consent to go to conference, and Senator Lee blocked.
14) 6/19 Senator Murray asked unanimous consent to go to conference, and Senator Toomey blocked.
15) 6/26 Senator Murray requested unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator Cruz blocked.
16) 7/11 Senator Murray requested unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator Marco Rubio blocked.
17) 7/17 Senator Murray requested unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator Mike Lee blocked.
18) 8/1 Senator Durbin requested unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator Marco Rubio blocked.
19) 10/2 Senator Murray requested unanimous consent to go to conference, Senator Toomey blocked.
Can any conservatives tell me if Fox "news" told you about any of these specific opportunities that REPUBLICANS rejected?
Any at all?
Maybe just ONE?
I just love busting loudmouth, dipshit Republicans for their lies!
Now can anyone tell me why Republicans and the pathetic conservative media (who lied to you about the election results this past November) are running around LYING (again) saying that "Democrats refused to compromise"?
I'll be sure to add your answers (or the lack thereof) in to my survey in post 6008.

Oh, ok! Two liberal pollsters will have one believe that the majority of Utah residents would accept Obamacare to end the so called shut down that still leaves the government running at 83%! Who's hurting during this shut down? Nobody except supposedly UNNEED Government worker's that voted for obama anyway! Fuck them! Haha! Let them go through what the rest of the county is going through under his incompetence! Obamacare is a joke! His incompetent administration couldn't even properly implement it, as evident by the fiasco in signing up for it. The leeches are learning it ain't free and has very high deductables! Lee will be a Senator from Utah as long as he wants to! So will Cruz from Texas! Hahahaha! Get used to iy, bitchy!

Let's check the responses to the poll in 6608 that asked "Why are Republicans running around LYING saying that Democrats refused to compromise"?

So far we have:
Option A (Ignore the entire post) with 3 votes
Option B (Respond and spin like a top) with 7 votes
Option C (Just vote my post down) with 9 votes

AND STILL NO ANSWER TO THE QUESTION.

What's the matter? Don't you conservatives have any common "since".

Nope .. posting something about Obama still doesn't change what I posted about Republicans.

That would be an attempt to change the topic.

And that would be another FAIL.

Well, what do you expect from a dictator wanna be like Obama? Shuts down the WW2 memorial to WW2 VETERANS but gladly has the park services grant a permit so thousands of illegals can protest on the capital. Then all of the Typical phoney Democrats can stage themselves being arrested knowing all too well that they won't be prosecuted! Yeah, this is what Americans want! Gallop and NBC and CNN polls all say so! Retards.

Blocking progress?

We have Republicans getting hammered in the polls for the unnecessary shutdown they caused.

Even the conservative trolls on CNN are trying to make themselves feel better about it.

Don't get your hopes up about them forgetting about you anytime soon - they have sinking polls that they need to redirect attention from.
