    There should be no surprise in this. Politics as usual. :laugh: And when they gain control again the GOP will be against the evil of the filibuster.

    What bothers me about this is we heard height nor hair about the judicial hold ups from mainstream media outlets during the last eight years and now this is a big deal.

    I could honestly care less. If we expect anything from Republicans and Democrats it should be that they will both lie to us equally and both don't have a care in the world for accomplishing something good for the American people without incentive.

    Democrats don't like it than they can just pick up the Congressional Record for the past eight years and see how they did the exact same thing. Turnabout is fair play.

    I was listening to NPR the other day and they spent considerable time (maybe 5 to 10 minutes) talking about this exact issue. I honestly can't remember them saying much at all about judicial confirmation hold ups during the Bush years. It seem quite ridiculous at this point.

    Excellent post. Both parties are worthless. Nothing will be solved by reelecting the Republicans because the Democrats are failing. Threads like this that create a false divide between the two parties only encourages the same, old failed policies the Democrats have been swapping back and forth for decades. People who create threads like this are part of the problem, not the solution, which is to elect people outside the two parties that wants to run our country by the Constitution.

    I am not saying you are wrong, but do you really think we will see a third party in power any time soon?

    David Hamilton is a wild eyed liberal moonbat judicial activist who neither knows the law nor how to apply it.

    And doesn't care. He just makes it up as he goes along. He is the laughing stock of all serious jurists.

    The record on this clown:
