It has taken more than 100 days to confirm some nominees AFTER they were unanimously vetted by the Senate Judiciary Committee. And, when the Senate is finally allowed to act, they confirm a judge to fill a seat that has been vacant for four years. It shouldn't matter if one is a Democrat or Republican. This just isn't acceptable. These delays are a disservice to ALL Americans who depend on our Federal courts for justice.
Now, I'll admit, the Democrats did the same thing under Bush when Republicans were in charge and the Republicans threatened invoking the "nuclear option" at that time. They would have done so too if they had more than a two vote majority.
So now it is done and it is a good thing. It will benefit everyone..including Republicans when they regain control of the senate.
the nominations to the DC court are to pack the court, not to fill vacancies...same as FDR during his depression...unnecessary judges...

From watching CNN around 5PM EST, I learned that Obamacare was doing great in California. Tons of people signing up.
CNN didn't say how bad it is in the entire country, being an arm of the Ministry of propaganda.
Why don't we just send money to Mexico? Considering California has been taking over by a Mexican population in the last 20 years (ILLEGAL ALIENS), Democrats rejoice.
How ironic Democrats are forcing everyone to support Mexico. The Democrats include illegal aliens who shouldn't be here in the first place in the numbers they use to justify their socialism.
Democrats hope socialism/communism will keep them in power. They will then want to call Congress the Politburo. That's &#1055;&#1086;&#10 83;&#1080;&#1090;& #1080;&#1095;&#1077; &#1089;&#1082;&#10 86;&#1077; &#1073;&#1102;&#10 88;&#1086; for you Democrat Comrades.
75-80% of the people signing up in California are old, sick people...the system will implode...

Chris Christie would be a good choice .... might interfere with the circular firing squad now running the party.
Republican candidate for president has carried the popular vote only one time in the last 20 years?
Christie needs to enter a rehab program before being seriously considered...he can start by campaigning hard against Cory Booker in 2014...if not, stick a fork in him...

Well, that sounds racist to me. Especially since both of these men were quite accomplished in their chosen profession.
How 'bout it, nuc? Doesn't that sound racist to you?

Yep, racist, most definitely. Right, nuc?

bragging about sucking up government benefits is not helpful...suggest you keep your personal problems to yourself...

by the way, unless you plan to die soon, you probably made a bad financial decision...far better to keep working full-time until your normal retirement age so that you can be self-sufficient instead of dependent on handouts...

Anyone can retire at the age of 62 if they can and if they want to. It's the law. Working, even part-time, is the opposite of dependence. The only jobs anyone can find anyway these days.
The choices my husband and I made together during our married life and as parents led up to my retirement at this time in my life, and I want the money the government took from me back now. If I had lived another life, other choices would have been made.
Go find some real takers. Take your complaints up with them.
problem is, you probably can't afford to retire..your need for a part-time job proves that...

Minnesota senator Al Franken, a Democrat, opens the door to a delay of the Obamacare individual mandate in an interview with Minnesota Public Radio.
The Washington Post reports:
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) says he would be open to a brief delay in the individual mandate if the problems with HealthCare.gov aren't fixed by the end of the month, according to Minnesota Public Radio.
"I think then we have to consider extending the deadline for the mandate, but letís hope that doesn't happen," Franken told MPR.
Franken has so far been relatively quiet about potential changes to the health-care law, but he now joins a growing group of Senate Democrats in seats that could be targeted by the GOP in 2014 who are speaking up on the issue.
Typical liberals.

They don't give a rats ass about the suffering they create until it confronts them.

Now I'm "sucking up government benefits"? Seriously?

Either you're too young to be thinking about retirement and all the money the government has taken from you over your working lifetime or you're just going to tell them to keep it when it's your turn.

But what you're saying is wait until I'm 65 and THEN be dependent on handouts?

What difference does three years make when I don't even need to work full-time until I'm 65?

What's really the problem here, Galt? Need to talk about it?

Other than to crazed Obama groupies this really is not at the top of concerns for Americans at this time.
Rangel is guilty of misuse of public funds; where is your demand for his resignation?
bommie is much to busy making news, everything else is sweep under the rug, bommie is way to busy trying to hold on, he is about to slip away, you can hold on so long and you finally have to let go.

And there you go again.
Everything you say about Obama is merely biased opinion, you can't prove a word of it.
Yet you want us to hold the Herman Cain's of the world to a different standard. So you can accuse Obama of every evil, yet defend your favorites with "no proof of alleged wrongdoing". While you attach your lips to birthers and demean Obama at every opportunity.
You are quite mad. I hope it eats you alive.
Concerned and saddened is more like it. Only mad that you believed a manipulator who is manipulated himself and elected him twice.

Here's a probable course of action for the Magic Negro's selection of his security detail:

1.) Locate a few of those Benghazi Al Qaeda operatives who killed our people. The Muslim Brotherhood will come in handy with this.

2.) Instruct the Al Qaeda killers to walk across the Mexican border - almost anywhere will work.

3.) Get them some stolen SS #'s from his criminal friends in La Raza

4.) Get them hired under some Progressive Affirmative Action Program as Security Agents to the President.

An added plus for all this is that they can be plotting mass murders of Americans at shopping malls, theaters, supermarkets, etc. in their spare time.

Let me simplify it then. We're in deep doo-doo. And you're wallowing in it.
