The Think Progress article Democratic Members Of Congress Slam Obama For Massive Cave To Republicans On Judges starts off with the following:
Last November, Senate Democrats invoked a procedural maneuver that allowed them to confirm judicial nominees by a simple majority vote, thus cutting off the GOP’s ability to maintain control over a key federal appeals court by simply refusing to permit anyone to be confirmed. So it’s a bit odd that, just over a month after Senate Republicans effectively lost their ability to veto nominees from the minority. President Obama decided to outsource selecting nominees to most of the open judicial seats in Georgia to two Republican senators.
Read the article to find out why the Republicans want President Obama to talk to them more often. I’ll give you a hint. Whenever he does talk to them, he sells the rest of us down the river. On the other hand, maybe this is the kind of deal that made Harry Reid decide he needed to use the “nuclear option” to stop our President from doing his style of bi-partisan negotiation.
