Dem block obstruction of Trump's gay nominee for - Ambassador to Germany

Posted: Mar 9th, 2018 - 2:51 am


Grenell is one of over one hundred Trump nominees who have been approved in committee and are waiting for a floor vote to finalize their confirmation.

Chris Bedford at The Daily Caller wrote earlier this week that Senate Republicans should force each nomination for a floor debate thus trapping Democrats in DC for tedious senate procedures rather than having the luxury of campaigning in their home states in the months before the critical mid-term elections this November:

On Friday, while 26 Senate Democrats up for re-election went home to their states or elsewhere to speak and raise money with which to batter Republicans in November, 139 of the White House’s nominees languished in positions from undersecretary for arms control and international security affairs to director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center.

According to the Senate rules Democrats and their Republican enablers love to cite, they have to wait 30 hours after ending debate. This has turned into three or so nominees confirmed a week, averaging 79 days a nominee, with McConnell himself griping that at this rate, it will take 11 years to confirm Trump’s nominees.

So why is Grenell being held up? Is it just part of the Schumer-led Democrats’ blanket obstructionism? Or is there something more at play here?

Grenell, the former spokesman for the allied coalition in Iraq, and spokesman for the US Ambassador to the UN under President George W. Bush, also happens to be an openly gay conservative Republican.

And Democrats can’t have that.

Hewitt took to Twitter to lay out the dangerous nature of Democrats playing identity politics with this critical diplomatic post:
