    Judge Robert Bacharach was nominated in January of 2012 and Senate Republicans filibustered him, refusing to allow a vote on his nomination for the better part of a year.

    The best part of the story, though, said Maddow, is that when the Senate finally voted on Bacharach, they shooed him through unanimously, 93-0.

    It's one thing to block a Democratic Presidents nomination until there is a Republican President in office but this is just juvenile foot stamping waah waah waahing by the GOP. And refusing to except that a black man is their commander in chief imo Yeah I went their, but this is too much to not consider it a factor
