He has been doing that.
Obama's appointments have been centrists. Some even a little to the rught. You have a truly distorted perception of reality. That is too bad, because you are not the typical tea-bag moron. That means you have a mental condition, you are fixated on your delusions.

The extremists in the Senate are only able to stop the president's appointments by using the filibuster. Truly a misuse of this device.

How different is van Jones than William Kristol, founder of the Lying neo-conservative movement, and guru of Newt Gingrich?
