Here is the kind of thing that was being referenced when we reported recently  that the North Carolina General Assembly was starting to resemble the U.S. Congress.
According to this report , opponents of President Obama are so set on blocking consideration of any judicial appointees during the fourth year of his term that they’re even filibustering a judge with overwhelming conservative support !
As you might recall, leaders of the General Assembly have stymied several of the Governor’s appointments to the state Board of Education (and other important state panels) in a similar and wholly political fashion.
