Where is outrage at 'nuclear option'
This action was taken by people who swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Instead they have trampled it under foot.
The consequence of changing the rule grants the president absolute power to appoint over 1,100 political cronies to powerful federal appellate courts and agencies. History has shown that such absolute power absolutely corrupts.
And the Republican opposition silently paced in their well-trodden corner and mumbled in their beer. Where was the outrage? Why weren't the American people awakened? Answer, the complicit news media was busy burying the story while the emotional 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy covered every TV screen and printed page.
Wake up, Americans. Your nation is being destroyed by those you have elected in their unquenchable lust for power. And this nation, the last best hope for the world may be lost forever.
