No, it's because Obama and his policies suck ass. Try a little harder to distinguish between blocking government effectiveness to blocking an incompetent left-wing moonbat with a left-wing moonbat agenda.
IIRC the current congress learned that trick form the dumocratic ons in the past that refused to hold hearings or approve of Bushes nominees.

It is a real b itch when something comes around full circle.

In other words, it's an attack on the presidency itself which serves no other purpose than to weaken his administration and make him less effective for political advantage. It follows the basic Republican concept of "**** the country. Politics come first."

This is part of a larger confirmation crisis in the Senate: Republicans have blocked 223 of President Obama’s 1,132 executive and judicial appointees—over 20 percent. Republican senators have enforced a strict sixty-vote threshold for most nominations, and sometimes holds are placed on nominees anyhow. This hobbles crucial federal agencies and is yet another successful prong of the Republican war against effective government.

Democrats blocked an unprecedented number of Bush nominees and come to find out Dirty Harry was actually the first leader in history to use the proforma maneuver to block recess appointments. Every bit of this is Democrats reaping what they so happily sowed.

amen brother

BTW if anyone saw Boomtown last night on Hannity y'all know that dirty Harry has several family members as registered lobbyists.

Wonder how often they twist arms in the name of their daddy.

All those Obama lovers back in the summer of 2008 who thought he was going to bring GW Bush up on war crimes charges are still faithfully waiting.
I think it would be a massive reach to charge an ex president on war crimes. He simply just should have been impeached. If they can impeach Clinton for getting a BJ, they sure as heck could have impeached W for faking documents to start a war.

Yep dems set the precedent with a pro forma sessions of the Senate so Bush could not make recess appointments.
