"It is a shame McCarthy's confirmation had to be held up to force the agency to do the right thing." YEAH RIGHT!! President Obama could nominate Jesus to be Secretary of Education and the republicans would fight it.

If the Senate is unhappy with actions of the EPA, they can work with the House and address it through the purse strings, which they control. There is no excuse for holding up political appointments. That type of political gamesmanship wasn't right during the Bush years when fanatical democrats held up President Bush's appointments and it's not right now with Obama appointees. All political Appointments deserve a straight up yes/no vote.

Senator Vitter, who is a regular customer of prostitutes, has little credibility when it comes to confirming nominees, especially when it involves the EPA. He comes from Louisiana which is one of the most polluted states in the nation. Literally, the oil and chemical industry can do anything it wants to the environment. The ****e brothers own vast paper mills in Louisiana who also have their way with what once was clean water and air in Louisiana. If you want cancer live in Louisiana.

""It is a shame McCarthy's confirmation had to be held up to force the agency to do the right thing."" ---- This final sentence is a very telling comment..... Not only does it say that the REICH WING/TEA BAGGERS admit to their OBSTRUCTIONIST POLICIES, THAT THEY PROUDLY BRAG ABOUT IT... It's disgusting but this is a very sad and sick group of people with WARPED IDEAS, THOUGHTS, and BELIEFS... Their proudly BOAST about their hate filled venomous attacks on our Government, Working Class Citizens, Blacks and Minorities, Immigrants, Basic Human Rights, [like healthcare}, Social Security and Medicare. This SICK OBSTRUCTIONIST ACTIONS of the REICH WING will be stopped and eradicated beginning in 2014. THE ""WORKING CLASS AMERICANS"" have spoken LOUD & CLEAR.......

Were you as morally outraged spouting such righteous indignation when Democrats were acting in the same manner during President Bush's years when his appointments were being blocked on a daily basis?

Understand that is a rhetorical question as I no more expect you to answer then I do any type of civil response from you. You must be lonely on your high horse of feigned fury.

Aaron as to my righteous indignation. My civil response to you is "You are a pompous, arrogant ***." You are not deserving of my thoughts or time to respond to your moronic, imbecilic opinions. Take a hike!!!!

I expected no less MD, hence the rhetorical question. I don't think it's lost on anyone who reads these comments that in the half dozen or more times I questioned you regarding your feigned outrage and Democrats blocking President Bush's appointments, you've ducked the question every time.

"President Obama could nominate Jesus". Just what qualifications does this Latino have to be Secretary of Education or any other cabinet level position? Is he even in this country legally or is he on a guest Visa? He would need to be vetted very carefully which was never done for the man doing the nominating.The man has no clue on how to lead and any nominee should be looked at very carefully before being allowed to make regulations with the force of law.

Insert the liberal fanatics are admitting that while the cry about Republicans, they don't share the same feeling of righteous indignation and moral outrage when Democrats did the EXACT same thing.

Color me shocked.
