Say it ain’t so, Babs?

“It is not the role of the Senate to obstruct the process and prevent numbers of highly qualified nominees from even being given the opportunity for a vote on the Senate floor.” Sen. Barbara Boxer, Congressional Record, May 14, 1997 (via Urban Grounds)

Oops. Not exactly new news, Michelle Malkin had an article about this on April 28th (BTW, is it just me, or is Michelle’s formatting messed up for the header?) How about some of Barbara’s buddies?

"Let’s bring their nominations up, debate them if necessary, and vote them up or down." Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Congressional Record, September 11, 1997

“I do not believe that I as a member of the minority ought to have the right to absolutely stop something because I think it is wrong, that that is rule by minority.” Sen. Tom Harkin, Congressional Record, January 5, 1995

Hmmm. So, as usual, the Dem party is pulling their "what’s good for the goose is NOT good for the gander" twaddle these days. It’s craptacular. Kinda how they made all those comments during Slick’s reign regarding Saddam and his WMD programs, as well as pushing through the Iraq Liberation Act (which was a good thing, I will say.)

When it comes to voting, there should be NO COMPROMISE! Period. You bring these nominees to the floor, and vote on them. Senators have had plenty of time to give their advice in the press for years now. Now it is time to either give their consent on not. That is what the Constitution states. Nowhere in my copy does it state that one must pontificate on BS for hours on end, nor refuse to vote.

"What I heard over an over and over is that we need to do the people’s business, we need to move beyond this bitter partisanship and obstruction and do the people’s business. Give these people an up-or-down vote then move on to key issues like energy," (Sen David) Vitter told FOX News.

"What Democrats want to do is forestall the results of the election … we have elections in this country for a reason — to put people in office and allow them to govern."

And what of these people the Senate should be taking a vote on? How about Priscilla Owen:

Bishop Harry Jackson, chairman of a group of black pastors, called Brown "not only a legal hero for black America, she is a legal hero for all America."

"Why are they afraid to put a black woman on the court?" Jackson asked.

Because she is not following the Democratic activist line. She is not going along with the Dems like a good little black girl, like the Democratic leadership wants. The Dems have taken advantage of Blacks for decades. She is not in that group. Wise woman.

    I think you mean that reference to Priscilla Owen towards the end to be “Janice Rodgers Brown”.
