Not all Republicans rolling over for Obama

According to this report in the Wall Street Journal, some Senate Republicans are holding up Obama‘s cabinet nominations (while other factors are also contributing to the delay).

Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come. Not obstruction for obstruction’s sake, but deserved scrutiny and principled opposition to the president’s priorities, people and programs, when the situation calls for it.

Consigned to minority status and without a Republican president to work with, perhaps the congressional GOP will re-discover its backbone. For the nation’s sake, let’s hope they do.
