    You are quite welcome.

    Given your incessant stream of stupid, there will certainly be others to follow.

    But Congress only started late THAT YEAR. Nevertheless, it means the FDR team had almost two more months to prepare.


    The GOP controls the senate.
    But the approval process doesn't just sit on the whole Senate vote; otherwise it would be done in minutes rather than months.

    And that is actually not uncommon. Would there was a better process to fill those seats - coming from someone who works for a federal agency that often goes without someone at the top.

    That works in citizens favor more often than it works against them. The less those buggers screw with, the better the country runs.

    Unfortunately they have a mountain of bull#### law on the books already...

    “There’s no question this is the slowest transition in decades,” said R. Nicholas Burns, a former State Department official who served under presidents of both parties and has been involved in transitions since 1988. “It is a very, very big mistake. The world continues — it doesn’t respect transitions.”


    It's actually not that common to have this many vacancies at this stage.

    FDR was inaugurated on March 4, 1933. In 1933, the Congress was in session from March 9th - June 16th. Sixty-nine legislative days.

    I did that to prove my point dim wit. If it was the slowest then and not much has been done since can you put two and two together?
