Kagan is in…

Well she’s got the gig. I find the statement by the Republicans that sided with her a good one but not grounded in the realities of bipartisan politics. You will never see a Dem say that the Senate should passively approve “qualified” appointees.

    Yes she is. She was a sure thing from day one. The GOP Teabaggers tried various angles to generate some outrage so they could do fund raising. Thud. Too bad POTUS Obama did not nominate a much more progressive candidate – he was not going to get any GOP support anyway.

    “You will never see a Dem say that the Senate should passively approve “qualified” appointees.”
    Never mind the last two Bush SOCTUS appointees skated through with many Dem votes. To0 bad Roberts lied through his teeth.

    Spoken like a true RINO.

    Spoken like a real douche.
    If you read the statement you’d see it is in line with the thought that the Senate isn’t supposed to exert inappropriate powers on appointments. Contrary to Dogs assertion,the Dems are not shy when it comes to causing recess appointments. Obama has appointments in limbo as well. there is a line.

    I was being kind but if you feel like you are a douche, I wont ague that.

    If you do a tally of blocked appointment you will find the GOP has set a record the past two years..

    any combinations of wrongs do not make a right dog.
    Obama Admin has upwards of 200 pending appointees…W had to recess 171 folks,165 of them directly due to foot dragging.

    “FALLING OFF A CLIFF: Before President obama took office, every modern president saw 80 percent or more of his judicial nominees confirmed. President Reagan’s confirmation rate was 93 percent. President Clinton’s was 83 percent. Even President George W. Bush, who whined incessantly that his judges were not being confirmed fast enough, saw nearly 87 percent of his judges confirmed. Obama’s confirmation rate is a dismal 47 percent. The raw numbers are just as bad. At this point in the Bush Administration, 72 judges were confirmed, compared to only 40 for Obama. This unprecedented collapse in judicial confirmations is the result of equally unprecedented obstructionism. Nominees who were unanimously approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee are nonetheless blocked by GOP filibusters and holds. For the first time in history, Senate Republicans are even filibustering district court nominees, even though these judges spend most of their time handling more routine manners such as trial schedules and sentencing and have never, ever been controversial in the past. Simply put, after stacking the courts with “the brightest lights of the Federalist Society,” Republicans aren’t about to let Obama place judges on the bench who will actually follow the law.”

    Another vacuous poster. Here you go dust mite.

    Do your own googling next time. Nearly any idiot can do it.

    I think wiki can be taken in a number of ways but this was pretty good. I like it for raw numbers as opposed to above link which used %’s. I also like that names,court and votes are easily viewable.

    Alfie shows us how…
    I hear the high school computer course covers Google and Bing.
    Some appear to need that.

    Want to do it the hard way and see the official record? The Congressional Record has it all.

    Thats too funny

    Alfie,

    Have you picked up too that Mange Mutt has learned a new word? The debate is getting near vacuous in the vacuum of virtually vacuous space in Mutt’s use of vacuous in virtually every vacuous sentence he types now vacuously.

    And Alfie. I highly recommend the Google/Bing high school class too. 😉 Look what it did for the Dawg.

    “Want to do it the hard way and see the official record? ”

    How about the marxist thug’s official school transcripts?

    I’ll bet money Elric we find Bongo a classic case of affirmative action and in over his head, passing classes with Soros donations.

    CORPSEMAN. 😆

    Magna Cum Laude my ass.

    Tex,

    I bet if we survive this and they look back, they will find stuff on al-Thuggy that even we didnt suspect.

    You’re real cocky for someone who had to be taught to fill in his vacuous comments with actual substance.

    You still have a ways to go, but I see you are finally getting the concept.

    Good boy.
