They don't hate America so much as they hate the working class to be free. They want the working class to be restricted and subject to the rule of law but they want the wealthy, corporate heads, and etc. to be free from such shackles.

Nothing new about that. They've been trying to turn around The New Deal since FDR.

Republicans - capitalize profits...socialize losses.

Screw the seniority tradition - appoint Feingold or Franken to Majority Leader of the Senate and get things moving.

The fact is that although Mr Southers is eminently qualified he will not guarantee that he will not oppose collective bargaining
At this point that just cannot be

Not racism rather proficiency efficiency and very real danger to Americans questions are raised here....Beyond that if Obama really wants this Demint has no say

in 2007 the Dems were very close to making Schumer Majority Leader, due to his getting several seats to turn blue. They made him Vice-Chairman of the Democratic Caucus instead. Although I agree, why do we keep electing these Caucus Chairmen who come from Republican states who aren't even Liberal, and are sometimes beaten in Elections (i.e. Daschle in 2004, maybe Reid in 2010.). Feingold and Franken would both make fine Majority Leaders, however.

Until today I thought that Sen. DeMint was just being an obstructionist (like all members of his party) and trying to do anything to make it seem that this President has failed in his job performance. His objection to unions was a farce. I read Mr. Southers bio and he certainly has the resume for the job. In fact, I don't think they could do any better. Then today I saw a picture of Errol Southers and a light went off in my head. Now I get it! Errol is a highly qualified, light skinned Black man. Who has a slight resemblance to Obama. Jim DeMint is showing his Jim Crow inner soul. This is RACISM! Pure and simple. DeMint has no business in the Senate. He is more repugnant than Joe Wilson. Did anyone vet either of these men for their KKK affiliation, you just might find a grand dragon amongst this pair.

republican demint held up this appointment for no other reason than he wants to prevent TSA workers from being able to form or join a union.

the right wing cares more about destroying labor unions than they do about the safety of the american people.

honestly, how much more is it going to take for their few remaining stubborn supporters to understand that these people are the t0xic waste of government?

And what was his concern about them being unionized?
09:17 AM on 12/30/2009
Why don't you explain his position on Unions and the TSA appointment? Your one-line comments here on HuffPo perhaps show a fear of debating a topic. Are you afraid of getting your feelings hurt?

Go Senator Reid!

And here's to hoping that the good people of S.C. will remove this dunderhead from his post in the next election.

Further evidence that DeMint's highly anticipated run for president is likely to meet with the same success as Fred Thompson's did.

Fred Thompson had more charisma than Senator DeMint(ed).

MSNBC has a headline blaming President Obama instead of Demented for the hold up!

Well, if it is such a vital position to national security, why did they wait until September to come up with a nominee?
09:38 PM on 12/30/2009
The nominee hasn't JUST been nominated, DeMint has been holding this up for quite a while.
12:41 AM on 12/30/2009
imho dimwit is only blocking the nomination because it's another person of color being promoted to a position of power in the government...people like dimwit can't deal with the minorities in this country becoming the majority or the fact that they actually may be way smarter than him...

He knows the reasons he is telling us, he knows his secret reasons, but he doesn't know his sub-conscious reasons.

OK, this is the third time I've tried to post an innocuous comment to this piece...

Why is it that we're waiting three more weeks to close this barn door? Why not a recess appointment?

Hello, I must be going.

Can you say recess appointment?

And if this special roll call vote is possible why not hit all of the appointments that are currently on hold while he is at it?
