Re: Acting Attorney General Peter Keisler


Some more sharp contrasts to the New York Times’s wild mis-assessment of Keisler:  The Washington Post, in a house editorial on November 17, 2006, stated that Keisler “certainly warrants confirmation” of his D.C. Circuit nomination.  And the Los Angeles Times, in a January 17, 2007, house editorial that encouraged Senate Democrats to display a “cooperative spirit” rather than “obstructionism” and to “forswear knee-jerk opposition to Bush appointees who are within the legal mainstream,” specifically recommended that Senate Democrats confirm Keisler’s D.C. Circuit nomination.
