Obama Filling Vacancies Faster than Bush Did

Posted by | March 30, 2009 11:53 | Filed under: Top Stories

In spite of criticisms from Bama Bashers that the president has been too slow in filling vacancies, he is, in fact, outpacing Bush on nominations.

Of the 385 posts at Cabinet-level agencies that a president must appoint, Obama had sent 100 names to the Senate as of March 24, of which 38 were confirmed. In contrast, Bush had sent 40 and gotten 30 confirmed by the same point in 2001. Obama has also announced more than two dozen other nominations that haven’t yet been submitted to the Senate.


Sorry, but there goes one more bashing point.
