A democrat stopped the vote. The R's can't block the nomination, they don't have the votes.

Obama's last Secretary of Labor did SQUAT in 4yrs = starting at 7.9% Unemployment Rate & ending at 7.9% Unemployment Rate

Leaving 12 million Americans Workers with NO JOBS for each & every minute of Obama/Biden 2008 Admn

In the US in 2011 there were 14,612 murders. This proves without a shadow of a doubt that we need to abolish all laws against murder simply because they are ineffective.  Time to let the GOP have their way and abolish all laws that are innefefective.

It takes a simple majority vote to confirm a nominee. the R's can't block it unless some of the D's don't go along with the vote.

Why blame the R's? The D's still have a majority.. Geeez.

Delay, delay, delay. Because Republicans do not believe in a functioning American government.

A DEMOCRAT stopped the vote. The R's can't block his nomination because it only takes a majority vote to confirm him.

Yes a Dem did postpone the vote but WHY? Because Republicans threatened to use a separate hearing to criticize his handling of a whistleblower case. Any opportunity to spout their ignorance and obstruct.

HArry Reid had a chance to do something about this and failed. If they keep doing this,it's time to use the nuclear option and forget about whether the Republicans will do the same. Enough is enough.

Fact is, from the looks of this Republican Party there is no guarantee they will not do the same if they are ever allowed to be the Majority in the Senate ever again.

Remember this is the same Party that has gone back on a "Gentlemen's Agreement with Reid" not once but twice. Look at what they are doing in the House. Nothing is getting done in either house because of the do nothing Republicans as they figure out ways to "lie or steal" their way back into the majority in 2014.

You are right enough is enough. Time for the nuclear option Reid.

Then again, I understand why he has not used it. Even if they pass a bill in the Senate, since the Republicans have gerrymandered (stool) the House. Nothing the Senate sends over will get passed or even makes it to the House floor for discussion, unless it is a tax cut for the rich.

In related news, the GOP continues to work tirelessly on overturning the 2008 presidential election. I fully expect them to try an omit the Obama presidency from all records, text books included.

The founding fathers would line them up in a public square and ...

This guy's a radical activist and a racist. It's ridiculous that the Joke-In-Chief even nominated him.

It tells you what kind of a clueless boob we have running this country, though.
