"Mr. Grenell, a Harvard-educated experienced diplomat, was the longest-serving U.S. spokesperson at the United Nations. He was nominated in September of last year. He was reported out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee with bipartisan support."

Goes to show the GOP is truly the more tolerant party, and for some reason the dems don't want us to have a gay ambassador to a G7 country.

Their excuse: 

But Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., objected, citing his objections to some comments Grenell, a former Fox News contributor, posted on his Twitter feed. According to Merkley, some of Grenell's tweets showed "a complete disregard for the Senate confirmation process."

Your headline states gay, I don't see any mention of it among the dissenters. What is your point?

They are blocking the nomination of a qualified gay man.  You can speculate why.

Probably because he is too old for them. They prefer interns and pages

Maybe they are all gay. Ask conservafact, they keep up with sexual orientation, it's so important to our well being. The blocks are because denny can't attract qualified people.

Hey freshyturd, as a service to our country why don't you step up and serve in a meaningful capacity. How did you escape the Vietnam draft? Duaine had a deferment because he had a vagina where his pecker should be

The GOP seems to not care - he’s excessively qualified.

Not sure why dems would be holding him up.

Have to ask, since this nomination is taking a lot of time to render, would this be considered 'clock blocking'?

Only conservafact seems to think his being gay is of importance.

Well, it must be bothering the dems, there is no other reason not to appoint him.
