Now wait just a doggoned minute.

When Obama was nominating his cabinet and naming Supreme Court justices, didn’t he get virtually all his radical appointees through? He got Hillary and John Kerry as Secretaries of State and he got two radical Attorneys General – Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. He got two appointments to the Supreme Court through – the Wise Latina Woman* and the Rubber Stamp**.

*Sonia Sotomayor
**Elena Kagan

So why are liberals grousing at the nominees of Donald Trump? trump-cabinet-funny

It’s because they arise from the “snowflake” movement in which they cannot stand to lose. Republicans gave Obama most of what he wanted, and now the shoe is on the other foot. So a climate-denier named Scott Pruitt, now Oklahoma’s Attorney General, will be head of EPA. And Betsy DeVos will be Secretary of Education – unless Democrats are able to block.

The Dallas Morning News goes berserk over DeVos.

Betsy DeVos is rich. She’s married to Dick DeVos, the heir to the Amway fortune. She is a major donor to the GOP and former chair of the Michigan Republican Party. But what rankles the DMN is that she is a major supporter of school choice. The Dallas News, as a bona fide member of the liberal media establishment, is sold on the concept of government schools. The News does not want her to even think about taking a nickel away from public schools (which are failing in many places) to allow poor parents to do what rich parents like the Obamas already do: place their kids in better-performing private schools.

So expect DeVos to get a major grilling and expect the Sems to try and block her appointment.

Climate Change nutcases are furious over Scott Pruitt.

Pruitt is a global warming skeptic and might fall just short of being a climate change denier. As Oklahoma’s Attorney General, he joined with Greg Abbott, then AG of Texas, to void a dubious EPA rule that claimed that air pollution form Texas and Oklahoma was dangerous to Granite City, Illinois. (Two nasty conservative states harming a precious, innocent little town in a liberal state!)

Pruitt also wants to block the Clean Power Plan that would make major changes in production of electricity. There is no doubt that liberals in Congress will try to block him.

Elections have consequences.

Obama told conservatives that he won and they lost – so get used to it. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, they’ll scream. But rules changes in the Senate will make the easier for Trump to get his appointments through. Those changes were made by Democrats. Remember, at that time, they had just won. Perhaps this is one of Obama’s “teachable” moments.
