    Barney Frank throws down with GOP strategist: “[Your] party has put itself above a functioning federal government”

    “Real Time” host Bill Maher last night welcomed Sisters of Social Service lobbyist Sister Simone Campbell, former-Congressman Barney Frank, and GOP strategist Rick Wilson.

    Among a slew of topics, the panel discussed GOP obstructionism with respect to Obama’s SCOTUS nominee, Merrick Garland.

    “I think it’s strictly the principle of Mitch McConnell’s decision that President Obama should only be a one-term president,” Campbell said. “He’s been successful on certain issues, but in the end I don’t think he’ll be successful on this one.”


    “I think what McConnell’s doing is actually some very important, smart politics,” Wilson countered. “If they allow an Obama Justice to go forward at this point, it will blow a gigantic hole in the Republican coalition like we’ve never seen before.”
    Frank added that he’s “disappointed” by the GOP’s “explicit elevation of (its) needs of keeping the coalition together over the functioning of the federal government.”


    Watch Frank and Wilson tussle below:

    Straight from Orrin Hatch's mouth prior to the nomination.

    "The President told me several times he’s going to name a moderate [to fill the court vacancy], but I don’t believe him," Hatch told us.

    "[Obama] could easily name Merrick Garland, who is a fine man," he told us, referring to the more centrist chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia who was considered and passed over for the two previous high court vacancies.

    Don't you hate when people live off government money and refuse to work?

    Somebody needs to cut off Mitch McConnell's welfare checks.
