GIVE THESE JUDGES AN UP-OR-DOWN VOTE ... DEMOCRATS DEMAND!
Andrew C. McCarthy
A reader passes along these golden oldies from Sen. Kennedy and Sen. Boxer.
Here is a link to a Freeper list of Dem quotes on voting for Judicial nominees.
A couple of examples: Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA): “We owe it to Americans across the country to give these nominees a vote. If our Republican colleagues don’t like them, vote against them. But give them a vote.” (Congressional Record, 2/3/98)
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) 5/14/97 : “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.”
