“It is time to put an end to this partisan spectacle. We have 78 other persons for different jobs, which have managed, through their hearings and are waiting for a vote on this floor,” sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyoming., said on the floor of the Senate last week. “Most of these people have cross-party support, it can be confirmed easily.”

Barrasso wants to change a rule that allows 30 hours of Senate debate for each nominee, tell the Republicans that Democrats are allowed to jam up the appointment to a ridiculously slow crawl.

“It is the time to go back to the rules for the discussion about the nominations, which was the Senate in four years, … the Democrats – controlled Senate at the time and a Democrat, the nominations, the President Obama was,” said Barrasso.

The logjam is holding a special nomination has more attention in the last few weeks, and can contribute to the change effort, the rules of the game. Richard Grenell, a conservative and an experienced foreign policy expert who was openly gay, was nominated to be trump’s Ambassador to Germany in the past year, but remains among those who up in the process.

Grenell the nomination, which has championed have been through a wide range of Republican and conservative officials and commentators, the recently, the support of the liberal gay took rights group, the Harvey Milk Foundation. “I understand those who are frustrated with the trump administration and the actions of trump administration, Stuart milk, co-founder of the group, has taken,” said the New York Times. “And I think that’s misguided.”

Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Last week went on the floor of the Senate, and shouted to the press, unanimously consent to the nomination. But Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., objected to it, citing his objections to some of the comments Grenell, a former Fox News contributor, wrote on his Twitter feed.

Meanwhile, the Trump’s administration has also his efforts to push intensified by Grenell, the nomination Speaking at a White house press conference last month, a spokesman for Sarah Sanders cited the Democrats’ “historic disability” in the Blockade, and the growing number of other nominations.

“Mr. Grenell, a Harvard-trained, experienced diplomat, was the longest serving U.S. spokesperson at the United Nations. He was nominated in September of last year. It was reported that he was out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, with the support of both parties. He is waiting to represent America’s interest and our country’s top voice in the G-7 country,” said Sanders.

The “hyper-political delay on Mr. Grenell puts our national security and America’s foreign policy interests at risk,” said Sanders. “The Senate should move to confirm him immediately.”

A number of foreign policy experts have also expressed concern about the lack of a U.S. Ambassador in Germany. The U.S.-Germany relationship is critical, especially with the government in Berlin, the participation in matters such as the Iran nuclear deal, trade, and NATO security.

The disability of Grenell’s nomination has also irritated the German policy and the media.

“America needs a voice in Germany!” was the title of a comment piece from Florian von Heintze, Deputy editor-in-chief of the IMAGE. “If the German-American relationship is suffering, the damages in Germany. We have an important ally in the world.”
