What a baby Ben Nelson sounds like

Aw, look at the widdle baby. Waaah waaah waaah.

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska) is a staunch DLCer - an albatross around the collar of the Democratic Party who has helped scuttle any hope of real health care reform for months (if not years) to come.

Now Nelson plans to filibuster President Obama's nomination of Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board - making it almost impossible for Becker to be confirmed.

Nelson's big complaint? Becker apparently opposes misnamed "right-to-work" laws. Nelson cried that Becker's views "fly in the face of" these laws - which I call work-for-less laws. In states that have work-for-less laws, these laws have depressed wages, busted labor unions, forced union workers to subsidize nonunion labor, and harmed workers.

So Ben Nelson is mad because Craig Becker opposes laws that are unconstitutional anyway.

In other words, Nelson has a personal agenda that takes priority over the Constitution and working Americans - so he's going to kick and stamp his feet until he gets his way.

Gee, Ben, you've got a hell of a way of showing everybody what an idiot you are.

Despite being labeled as a Democrat, Nelson voted to confirm probably every major Bush nominee. Yet he filibusters an Obama nominee for opposing a law that's unconstitutional?
