Bob Schieffer Grills John McCain: Why Is The GOP ‘Against Every Single Person’ Obama Nominates? [View all]

Source: www.mediaite.com

Face The Nation host Bob Schieffer grilled Republican Senator John McCain Sunday on why the GOP seems “to be against every single person” that President Obama has nominated to his cabinet. Schieffer said he “couldn’t remember a time” when the opposing party has had a problem with each of the president’s nominations. “It’s usually been the rule if the president is going to be in charge of the government, we have to give him the people he wants to run it,” he added.

McCain noted that Hagel was “a friend” but claimed that usually with this process, “the previous presidents” would “call the other side” when considering a nomination and say “what do you think about it.” He added that it didn’t matter if the presidents were Republican or Democrat, it had often been done before. “There’s been none of that with this administration,” he said.

So McCain is complaining that the administration in being inflexible. They really seem to live in their own little reality bubble do they not? Or is it only okay to obstruct EVERYTHING if the president is a democrat? The game has truly changed.
