Quotational Therapy: Part 8 -- Democrats, On Judicial Nominations.
"I cannot recall a judicial nomination being successfully filibustered. I do recall earlier this year when the Republican Chairman of the Judiciary Committee and I noted how improper it would be to filibuster a judicial nomination." -Pat Leahy
"But I have had Senators come up to me and say, [Senator], here is the deal. We will let the following judges through in my state if you agree to get the President to say that I get to name three of them. Now folks, that is a change of a deal. That is changing precedent. That isn't how it works. The President nominates. We dispose one way or another of that nomination. And the historical practice has been—and while I was chairman we never once did that—that never once that I am aware of did we ever say, 'By the way, we are not letting Judge A through unless you give me Judges B and C.'"
"I say to my friends on the other side of the aisle, this is not a legacy of which one should be proud. My colleagues need to move these nominations. If there are some nominees whom they do not like, vote them down or do not bring them forward, but let's get these numbers up this year into the fifties or sixties."
"I just submit to you this game ought to stop. We ought not to be playing with the Federal courts in this way. If people have a legitimate objection to a particular nominee, they ought to voice that objection and vote against them and try to persuade their colleagues to vote against them. But this is crippling the courts." -Joe Biden
"I have been calling for the Senate to work to ensure that all nominees are given fair treatment, including a fair vote for the many minority and women candidates who remain pending."

I have a particular objection to Sen. Joseph Biden playing the do nothing games he is so famous for playing!...Harry Reid: I have to say his attitude of thinking Social Security is not in a "CRISIS" I have an objection to that too!...Wow! It is quite amazing that they think they are not as transparent as they really are!...

The quotes all say vote on the judges. But when they come to the floor every one of these Democrats will vote against ending a fillibuster.
U.S. Senate: Never have so many done so little. But damn, they tap dance well!

What you say me be true, but that Joe Biden does have a million dollar smile doesn't he? How does he get them so white?

Buckley F. Williams, are you talking about Sen. Joe's hairs? or lies? or what?...
