The government is functioning exactly like it's supposed to. If Obama wanted the senate to confirm his nominee he should have nominated someone the senate would accept. Even then they were under no obligation to actually do it. Maybe they would give his nominee more consideration had he not trampled all over the GOP when he had the chance.
The notion that there was any chance the GOP was ever prepared to have a respectful, cooperative relationship with Barack Hussein is one of the most intellectually dishonest things every posted in this wildly intellectually dishonest space.
