Maybe the Republicans think we’ll just get numb and desensitized to their rampant GOPocrisy and start pretending it doesn’t exist. Check this out. They aren’t the least bit subtle about it. After spending two years preventing literally hundreds of President Obama’s nominations to key administration and judicial posts from being filled, we get this:
Republicans, after two years of criticism from the White House for blocking government appointments, have started to complain that the Obama administration is failing to fill senior financial and economic jobs…
Richard Shelby, the senior Republican on the Senate banking committee, said: “The president’s failure to nominate qualified individuals to lead these agencies has created even more economic uncertainty at a time when we can least afford it.”
The best response to this came from an unnamed “senior administration official”:
It’s like the arsonist complaining that the building sprinklers weren’t working properly.
Less than 40% of his nominations of judges to fill vacancies have been approved. Countless other administration positions have gone unfilled for extended periods of time thanks to Republican obstructionism.
And these assholes have the temerity to blame it on the President.
I’m just sayin’…
