Joke is on Senate Republicans: Richard Griffin to be NLRB General Counsel

By Willie Deutsch

In the Senate Republicans capitulation on stopping Obama’s radical nominees, their consolation prize was that Obama would withdraw his nomination of Richard Griffin and Sharon Block to the NLRB.  While Obama took advantage of this by nominating two equally radical nominees, their is a further irony.

It seems Obama will take advantage of the Republican surrender by nominating Richard Griffin to be General Counsel of the NLRB.  This is arguably an even more important position than the board position he had been appointed to.  Richard Griffin is someone NetRightDaily.com has written extensively about.  He has an incredibly checkered past including being sued as part of a RICCO lawsuit over union embezzlement.

The HuffingtonPost reporters stated that this nomination “shows you how much Democrats got in this deal and how little Republicans did.”

When the meager result of a Republican capitulation is wiped away by an even worse nomination, it is clear that Obama had the last laugh.
