As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

GOP Furious that Dems are Blocking Trump Nominees

Republicans, both in the incoming Trump administration and on Capitol Hill, are growing increasingly angry with Senate Democrats’ efforts to slow the confirmation of Trump nominees, reported Byron York in the Washington Examiner.

GOP lawmakers and staff often point out that the Senate confirmed seven Obama nominees — secretaries of agriculture, education, energy, homeland security, interior, veterans affairs and a budget director — on Inauguration Day 2009. Now, Democrats are saying they might — might — allow the confirmation of two Trump nominees on Friday.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is accusing Republicans of trying “to jam through Cabinet nominees in a way that hides their views from the American people.” Schumer wants more extensive — read longer — committee hearings for Trump nominees, and without them, he said, “then [Republicans] should be prepared for that debate on the floor — extensive debate.”

  1. Chuckles, Chuckles, come down off that ledge, man.

    You DO know how the map looks in the 2018 midterms, right?

    In poker terms, you’re going all in, before the flop, on your very first hand, holding an offsuit San Francisco busboy.

    Wrong play, wrong hand, wrong time.

  2. Well of course the GOP made little effort to block Obama’s nominees in 2009 being the world class pussies they have been. But now the dems have the short end of the stick…they can toss out as many road blocks as possible but in the end they don’t have Jack Shit. MAGA

  3. Trump will no doubt reference — somewhat casually — in the address how he is looking to get the nominees done, etc. and the shame will get the DEMs off their collective butts.

    Way Way OT — so I can have it on record — I’m calling a top hat and gloves when he arrives at White House to pick up the current occupant.

  4. HRC will never be POTUS and for at least the next 4, if not 8 years, Chuckles the Camera Clown will not be Majority Speaker. In the words of Obama, We (I) won. Elections have consequences.

    I expect nothing less from the Democrats regarding the confirmations. So much for anybody who wants the Republicans to “reach across the aisle” or “compromise”.

    My suggestions “When in Rome…” do what Emperor Barack did make them Czars. I mean, after all, the Russians should get something for interfering in the election that resulted in a Trump Presidency.

    It is time for McConnell and Ryan to learn how to stand up and fight. In other words, screw you Dems and your buddies McCain, Graham and Rubio.

  5. OT but there seems no better place to put this.

    Twas the Night Before Inauguration

    Twas the night before Inauguration, and up in the tower,
    The Donald reflected on his newfound power.
    The conservative masses had come out in force,
    And delivered a victory that would chart a new course.

    The snowflakes were shell-shocked with tears in their eyes,
    The media lied to them . . . What a surprise.
    They had been promised a Hillary win,
    But the criminal Clinton took one on the chin.

    And though from all corners celebrities flew,
    They made no impression, for they hadn’t a clue.
    They talked about climate, racism, and such,
    And they made up good stories . . . But didn’t know much.

    The fake news and ignorance came at a cost,
    And they can’t understand all the reasons they lost.
    They blame it on Comey and Bernie and Vlad,
    But fail to acknowledge the one that was bad.

    Yes, Hillary Clinton, in many ways flawed,
    Was her own biggest hurdle toward getting the nod.
    The campaign exposed her corruptness and greed,
    And her speeches were punch-less as ten dollar weed.

    So out in the streets there arose such a clatter,
    It was Soros-paid protestors and Black Lives Matter.
    With cities to pillage and windows to smash,
    They knew not the issues, but needed the cash.

    Eight years of Obama had given them cause,
    To expect a replacement of their Santa Claus.
    But soon the protestors will feel the pain,
    When the wheels fall off of the old gravy train.

    And now all the snowflakes are riddled with fear,
    Upset and offended by things that they’ll hear.
    The cocoa and crayons will help for a while,
    But fact-based opinions will soon cramp their style.

    I originally supported, and voted, for Cruz,
    In the end, I would vote for whoever they choose.
    He wasn’t my first choice, but soon I would cede,
    The one they call Trump is the one that we need.

    I saw him on TV in front of a crowd,
    He spoke about veterans, it made me feel proud.
    He spoke about energy, safety, and jobs,
    Taking this country back from the Washington snobs.

    He was dressed in Armani, all tailored and neat,
    And the Brunos he wore made the outfit complete.
    For a man of his vintage, he seemed rather fit,
    And he looked presidential, I have to admit.

    His eyes glowed like embers, his smile was the best,
    And his hair was the color of my old hunting vest.
    His love for this country was on full display,
    And his actions spoke louder than his words could say.

    He thanked all his voters, and before he was gone,
    Saved thousands of jobs while Obama looked on.
    The fate of this country left nothing to chance,
    So, he filled out his cabinet weeks in advance.

    The men he had chosen were of the same mind,
    Let’s set the bar high, and not lead from behind.
    He picked up his phone as he rose from his seat,
    With a flick of his finger, he sent out this tweet;

    “Now Mattis!, now Kelly!’ now Sessions! And Pruitt!
    On Perry! On Flynn, You’re the ones who can do it.
    Start lifting restrictions and building the wall,
    Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”;

    The roar of his audience rose from the stands,
    He kissed all their babies and shook all their hands.
    He answered their questions and calmed all their fears,
    They knew it would be a fantastic four years.
    Then he jumped in his limo, and off to his jet,
    A fellow that Liberals won’t soon forget.
    He sent one more tweet as the evening expired;
    “Happy Inauguration to all,
    AND OBAMA – YOU’RE FIRED!”

  6. Eff them! Seriously, the biggest joke on today, the most important day of our the rest of our country’s future, is that the democrats and their media and celebrities and thugs and paid agit-props here and all over the world, still don’t get the fact that they LOST! I would play on continuous loop where Obama says….he won and elections have consequences. Get that you dumb, over indulged nimrods…….you lost!!!! I hope they agitate themselves into mental exhaustion. You know the reason that you never see a non-democrat making trouble, because we have jobs and we are paying for them to be useless layabouts. God Bless President Trump!!!!
