Harry Reid and Barack Obama team up to pick on a girl
The Obama administration announced two weeks ago that it would renominate Republican Commissioner Kristine L. Svinicki to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), but it has yet to act. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, refuses to say whether he will bring up her nomination for a vote. Apparently, Ms. Svinickis membership is getting blackballed.
By law, the minority party in the Senate picks two commissioners of the five-member NRC, while the White House chooses the other three, including the chairman. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, submitted Ms. Svinickis name to the president for renomination in December 2010 so it could be wrapped up well before her term expires in June of this year. Background and ethics checks were concluded quickly. After inexplicable delay, the White House privately committed to move on Ms. Svinicki in January but then went radio silent until Mr. McConnell - worried about the impending expiration of her term - lambasted the apparent effort to hold her back.
Confirmation fights are common enough, but whats not is a public campaign by the majority to keep someones name from even being sent to the Senate for debate and a vote. Mr. Reids willingness to come out publicly against Ms. Svinickis very nomination points to collusion with the White House to kick the only female commissioner off the team.

Harry Reid and Barack Obama-—”he men?”
ROFL!! You’re both dead on the money.
Sometimes I'm glad my old dad, patriot that he was, didn't survive to see this miserable century. Bill Clinton would have driven him to his grave with indignation. His father used to prosecute people like Clinton -- and to see that animal, that woman-abuser, in the White House would have just killed him.
And now this POS. Looks like he's got a hot date with Lou Ferrigno. -- Ugh.
It was a long time dawning on me, why the Russians wouldn't shake his hand that time.
I believe the “he-man woman haters club” is a reference to “The Little Rascals” and I think the comparison to small children is spot on. (but you’re right, Reid and Obama could both use some andro cream)
