A List of Bush Nominees blocked by the Democrats


For anyone who thinks that the GOP was the bad actor regarding approving Obama’s nominees, check out Wikipedia for all of the rest that the Democrats blocked during Bush’s years.

Just the D.C. Court below. Wait until you check out the hundreds others. I caught this late last night on a talkie. According to the program, the D.C. seats have long been empty. But the recent court decisions that struck down the recess labor appointments, the DC circuit court blocked EPA air pollution rules and put a hold on cases related to workers’ rights put this in Obama’s scope.

Of the DC circuit confirmation, Kendall says “There are few things more vital on the president’s second-term agenda.”

“With legislative priorities gridlocked in Congress, the president’s best hope for advancing his agenda is through executive action, and that runs through the D.C. Circuit,” Doug Kendall, president of the Constitutional Accountability Center, told the Washington Post Tuesday.

    What the Dems once thought of as an attack on democracy they now feel is the only way to save democracy and do the work of the people. At least that is the rhetoric they used against the Republicans then and now. The hypocrisy abounds!

    If it was for a president’s right to nominate judges, I’d say let a president pick his own management team. Judges are a different matter. I wish I was smart enough to suggest a better way to staff the judical branch of government.
