    She misspoke someone's name who hasn't been in office for 8 years?

    Maybe. I don't know. Maybe she's just losing it. Maybe after eight years of "blame Bush" that name just automatically comes to mind. I don't think there's much of a story here.

    Why should we be upset about Putin invading Korea?

    Wait, wait, wait....she wants to impeach Trump for supplying bombs that killed innocent people in Syria? It's kind of hard to understand her with all the umms, and acting like Johnson with the Aleppo thing. Is there a transcript so I can actually understand her attempt at english?

    The people need to vote these losers out of office. The BS that's going on has been going on for years and needs to end.

    Same goes for the BS that Warren had her crazy arse going on in the senate regarding Sessions. Thankfully they barred her from speaking at his hearings.

    Orin Hatch said it best.

    "I think we ought to be ashamed of each other," said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, the Senate's most senior Republican. "Everything doesn't have to lead to a fight on the floor." "We've got to grow up [and] take stock of ourselves," Hatch added, before warning that "this place is going to devolve into nothing but a jungle."

    In the end these appointments are going to be confirmed so let's put the old school antics aside and get on with business already. They get paid way too much money and have way too much influence to warrant this crap.

    So will you also blame the republicans for doing the same under Obama?

    Was that quote before or after the GOP obstructionism that occurred under Obama, like not even considering his SCOTUS nomination? Grow up indeed.

    EDIT: Meanwhile, the GOP shows its tolerance of dissent by shutting down Warren's reasonable objections to the nomination of Sessions. She was reading a letter from Coretta Scott King claiming that Sessions used his power to obstruct black voters in Alabama. Apparently it is against Congressional rules to question the motives of a member of Congress, or that's the game the GOP were playing. So... citizens nominated for cabinet offices can be criticised mercilessly unless they have been in Congress. One rule for normal citizens, another for Congress. Well done, GOP. Adults. Link to the story is here.

    DeVos was almost NOT confirmed. Confirmation is not automatic. I do think that obstruction for obstruction sake is wrong. But if there's a candidate that isn't qualified or there are issues - vetting them further and/or spending time listening to those that voted for them to get their input isn't wrong. In fact, that's how it should work. DeVos was voted in by party politics, not because she's capable. And if more of the Republican Senators paid attention to what their constituents wanted, she wouldn't have been confirmed.

    You can't excuse the democrats confirming 4 candidates up until yesterday, it's unprecedented. Instead of choosing a target they are obstructing all nominees which is going to backfire on them.

    Backfire? As opposed to what?

    Love the alternate facts you're throwing out there. She was never in doubt. They let two Senators have their little protest. If they had needed those two votes, they would have squeezed them.

    If you wanted it to backfire you shouldn't have voted Republican for the senate.

    Never in doubt when the Vice President had to break the deadlock. Jesus.

    You're not using alternate facts correctly. And you must agree since you just said they didn't need those two votes. You think all the Republican Senators feel DeVos is capable? Or do you think some were simply voting party. And that's after you remove those that have benefited from DeVos' money lining their pockets.

    Do you think DeVos is qualified for the job? If so, why?

    Something that has happened HOW many times before? Exactly.

    Liz Warren has no respect or decorum for her colleagues or the Senate. All she does is preach, grandstand, and lecture, and everyone is sick of it. She was warned and an explanation followed that she was violating Rule 19, but proceeded anyway. And make no mistake, the media say this story was about Republicans not letting her talk about a letter from Coretta Scott King. Patently false. The Senate has rules of decorum, and she was intentionally breaking them by reading 30 year old impugning remarks about Sessions into the record for no other purpose but to destroy his character and delay the confirmation process.

    McConnell was right to call her on this, have the Senate vote on it, and finally shut her up.

    To be fair, it was more about all of her actions, as she had been warned for something else before she even read the CSK letter. Didn't they end up reading the full letter anyway?

    I think it's fair to say, though, that she got her point across.
