    This is nothing but political payback to supporters anyway, and no one should expect these nominees to have any real ability to do the job.

    I see where the most corrupt, incompetent, inept, lying union toady president we have ever had is heading to Mexico today to get an early start in pimping the democrat liberal party to the new 33 million democrat liberal voters he is planning on creating. When he gets through with this country we will be just like Mexico. We already have the thugs running our government, the democrat liberals just want more to ensure they continue in power.

    Wow, must have been a rough May Day for you guys. You are awfully bitter.

    I doubt you guys actually looked at whether or not these folks were qualified. Which is par for the course. Not to mention that you guys have had issues with everyone he's ever nominated. Even republicans.

    Most people posting seem more interested on bashing the president and the people he has nominated than in weather they are qualified. That is to bad .I can't believe money is an issue from the people that ran mitt. Give it a rest all this bitterness can't be healthy.
