|Juan Williams is side-eyeing Senate Republicans|
More: "In order to deny the twice-elected president a fully functional government, the current Republican Senate minority has used about a quarter of all filibusters in Senate history to block Obama’s choices. This political strategy is powerful because it is largely ignored by the press, or dismissed as more of the same old, dysfunctional political game that is played in D.C. But this is newsworthy. This widespread use of filibusters undermines the authority of the president to have his nominees run federal agencies created by congressional vote to serve public need. The GOP is throwing a wrench in the legitimate, democratic functioning of government because it doesn’t like the president’s policies — even though the president ran on those policies and the American people liked him enough to elect him twice."
