President Bush recently spoke at the Federalist Society's 25th anniversary dinner and he tore into the Senate...
for imposing "a new and extra-constitutional standard, where nominees who have the support of the majority of the Senate can be blocked by a minority of obstructionists."
He reminded his audience that today "too many interpret 'advise and consent' to mean 'search and destroy.'
As a result, the Senate is no longer asking the right question -- whether a nominee is someone who will uphold our Constitution and laws.
Instead, nominees are asked to guarantee specific outcomes of cases that might come before the court."
Take that Harry Reid!
By the way, I Googled an image for "unsavory characters" and this is what came up on the first page...
John "Faux" Kerry and CommieTommie Harkin with Commie Daniel Ortega.
"unsavory characters" indeed and the scientific community is united in that fact.
