OnceWasBlindBut NowCanSee

Once again, the Party of No rises and utters its predictable fartsworth of blather. GOP is accomplishing what Al Qaeda can't - the paralysis and bankruptcy of the US, with its constant NoNONO refrain and its moronic Taxcut & Spend philosophy... I can't believe I was ever stupid enough to ever vote Republican - !!!!!!!!!!!1

This is silly...Even when Obama's nominees have the full support from the states' home senators, as they have had 100% of the time, republicans still block the nomination...

Goodwin Liu has the backing of Senators Boxer and Feinstein, and he cleared the SJC, TWICE, and still hasn't received the full senate vote...

Republicans are taking judicial obstruction to an unprecedented level, and i hope Democrats pay them back one day...

And i don't want to hear about Miguel Estrada....Robert Chitgny, an Obama nominee, withdrew so were even...Estrada withdrew, Chitgny withdrew, thus republicans have gotten their payback for Estrada...

It's frustrating that the White House says they consulted with the Senators, and the Senators deny it. Since this is a traditional part of the vetting process, the reporter should do us a favor and find out what the truth is. If they were consulted, the process has been followed and the nominees should go forward. If not, the White House should at least reach out and offer to consult. Then, if Coburn and what's his name refuse to consider him, the White House should leak the emails or correspondence wherein they refuse to examine the nominees' credentials.

Poo on Tom Coburn and Jim Inhofe. Those guys wouldn't be happy unless Obama nominated the Marquis de Sade (and he was a lifelong Republican and NRA member). It is ridiculous that many judicial appointments have been vacant for years. A couple of Senators should not be able to hold up the confirmation process.

Stubbed Toe

This candidates background is far better than most who ascend to the bench - and a bit more unique (with the tribal judge experience). Dartmouth, Yale, couple of clerkships, firm life, federal prosecutor, etc. etc. Some serious bona fides.
