Yes, it's good to know the details instead of ranting and Raving @ Pres Obama like so many have

at this "nomination". More on this, thank you, rpannier..


It’s important to note that the president didn’t really want to nominate Boggs, so this isn’t exactly an example of Senate Democrats betraying the White House. Boggs was included as part of a compromise reached with Republican senators from Georgia, as part of a deal on blue slips (for more on what a blue slip is, see our coverage from March).

But Democrats in the upper chamber weren’t part of that agreement and were under no obligations to honor it.

MOre facts..

From Dec 31, 2014 in LBN.. http://www.democraticunderground.com/1014977274#post43

Senator Announces Democrats Have Enough Votes To Sustain An Obama Veto Of Keystone XL


Schumer said, “I think there will be enough Democratic votes to sustain the president’s veto…Our Republican colleagues say that this is a jobs bill but that really is not true at all. By most estimates it would create several thousand temporary construction jobs and only 35 permanent jobs…Why create very few jobs with the dirtiest of energy from tar sands when you can create tens of thousands more clean jobs using wind and solar? Our Republican colleagues are doing what they always do: they’re appeasing a few special interests — in this case oil companies and pipeline companies and not really doing what’s good for the average middle class family in terms of creating jobs.”


Senator Schumer! Yeah, if the republicons want "Jobs" so bad.. pass Bernie's Bill!

Happy New Year, DU!!

The President is doing all he can in spite of the Obstruction.. Including..

"Mr. Obama is also seeking to reshape the national debate over closing the facility in Cuba by casting it as a fiscal issue, arguing that keeping it open is cost-prohibitive."


Thank you, DI.. Happy New Year!

Wow, where is that? It's Beautiful!

Happy New Year, ellen!
