Obama on Senate obstructionism
Particularly judicial nominees, including now the Supreme Court (SC) in light of Scalia's death. The Senate Judiciary Committee has approved 14 of Obama's nominees and the Senate leader refuses to even have a vote on them. The same unnamed 'leader' has already vowed to not even consider Obama's SC nominee. Some regressives are even saying the President doesn't have the right to nominate anyone this late in his administration. Obama sets them straight on the Constitution, which they claim to value. This is just yet one more example in a very long line of Republicans obstructing the work of government and then claiming government doesn't work.
