The Democrats have been losing bigger and bigger since 2002, and no wonder. They have been trying to destroy the American system of justice by blocking nominees for the most spurious of reasons. By the end of 2002, they had succeeded in blocking President Bush’s nominee Judge Pickering for being insensitive to civil rights. They blocked his nominee, Texas Justice Priscilla Owen for being unfriendly to abortion rights. They said Judge Dennis Shedd of South Carolina could not be confirmed because he was unfriendly to trial lawyers. And they vetoed Miguel Estrada for being Hispanic, as was revealed later in memos from Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin.
Will the Democrat party continue on its path of self-immolation when Judge John Roberts comes up for confirmation to the Supreme Court? Or will they finally realize that the voters are fed up with their obstructionist tactics? The American people are watching.
According to today’s news the Democrats will continue to keep to their old ways. And President Bush will keep to his, and shine the spotlight on their lunatic ways. Check out the OpinionJournal. And this is what the president has done just today:
US President George W Bush has formally appointed John Bolton as US ambassador to the United Nations, without waiting for approval from the Senate. Mr Bush said Democrats had forced him to bypass Congress by using “shameful delaying tactics” to prevent a vote. “This post is too important to leave vacant any longer, especially during a war and a vital debate about UN reform,” Mr Bush said.
