Fox & Friends repeatedly claimed that Republicans in Congress have not attempted to block President Obama's policy priorities, asking "what has he not gotten?" In fact, Republicans in Congress have blocked numerous major pieces of legislation supported by President Obama, as well as his nominees.</div></div>

For example.

Seriously??? I thought your gripe was about major pieces of legislation being blocked.

THAT'S the Republicans for you.

If these are 'seriously non-major nominee confirmations ', why is the GOP blocking them?

</div></div>Because they are choosing to. Just because they are blocking bad nominees does not mean they are being obstructionist. Since you are not intelligent to figure this out, when you make a claim that includes the statement of "blocking major policy" and then you decide to give an example, your example should be one of "major policy" NOT non-major confirmations.

Why are they choosing to block them? They must have a reason?

Hmm, you do like strawmen. Care to get back on subject? Where is this major policy that is being obstructed by GOP alone?
