Trump Cabinet Picks and Democrat’s Frustrations

Democrats are tying to slow down confirmation of Trump’s cabinet picks. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell doesn’t like too much, telling CBS’ Face the Nation that Republicans didn’t pull that with Obama. Specifically, he said: “I know how it feels when you’re coming into a new situation and the other guy’s won the election, [but what] did we do? We confirmed seven Cabinet appointments the day President Obama was sworn in. We didn’t like most of them either. But he won the election. So all of these little procedural complaints are related to their frustrations.  We need to sort of grow up here and get past that.”

What’s the delay about? Incomplete ethics probes, and in some cases a lack of tax return information.  More importantly, Democrats just don’t like the candidates.

On that note, I’m tempted to wonder if we’ve really reached such a zen state, where all it takes to be good is to pass a federal ethics probe and have your tax records in order.
