Extraordinary Obstruction

The GOP has responded to the president’s re-election by basically denying his ability to govern. As Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) explains above, they’ve held up the confirmation of his choice for Secretary of Defense, a Republican, and left so many judgeships vacant that it’s creating a judicial emergency.

Their worst offense? Not even showing up for a vote on the president’s nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, Lisa Jackson — a former appointee of Mitt Romney.
