Skip to comments.Senate Approves Former Planned Parenthood Director as Judge (McCain leads RINOs for infanticide)
Posted on 05/09/2011 2:23:49 AM PDT by rabscuttle385
The U.S. Senate today overcame a Republican filibuster and approved a former Planned Parenthood abortion business director, John McConnell, as a federal judge in Rhode Island.
Senators voted 63-33 to surpass the 60-vote threshold necessary to stop the filibuster and approve the nomination of McConnells nomination to the District Court for the District of Rhode Island. his nomination previously cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee recently on a party-line 11-7 vote.
Senate Republicans joining all Democrats to end debate included Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Susan Collins of Maine, Lyndsey Graham of South Carolina, Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Mark Kirk of Illinois, John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Olympia Snowe of Maine, and John Thune of South Dakota.
McConnell was confirmed on party lines in a 50-44 vote afterwards.

Evil sons of b@tches all of them!
mcain is so stupid, he seem to think the process is simply to rubber stamp anyone the president pick. If a judge don’t understand the constitution then he’s not qualified. It got nothing to do with ideology. MCcain seem to think if that liberal president should be able to pick liberal judges and Senators have no say
Now the Hussein Cult has another Sacrament of Death adherent in a seat of power.
Congratulations, liberal Republicans. You’ve again endorsed someone who relishes the destruction of unborn children.
What happened to Thune? Did he get Potomac fever?
Others like Snowe, Collins, Brown and Graham fall under the "usual suspects."
where was Orrian hatch? He’s the guy that escorted Ginsburg into the chambers back in the 90’s.
McScum and your usual list of RINO filth, understandable. But Thune?!!!!
I have a feeling that Thune is going to be absolutely excoriated for this knife-in-the-back through thousands of phone calls and e-mails in the coming weeks. Hopefully, he’s replaced by a conservative in the next election.
>>> MCcain seem to think if that liberal president should be able to pick liberal judges and Senators have no say
You sound just like Harry Reid justifying the arbitrary blocking of republican judicial nominees.
McCain on the other hand said then, and seems to say now, that nominees are entitled to a floor vote. Since it was a party line vote I note it’s glossed over by Op, as always in these howler monkey threads, that McCain and the others voted against confirmation.
When it was Bush nominees being blocked it was our position they were entitled to an up/down vote. Who is being consistent on a principle. And who is hypocritical ?
Sounds like they need replacing!!!
The Dems didn’t give them an up/down vote. Why should we give them what they weren’t civil enough to give us?
Screw them, make them pay.
Target these RINOS!!
RINO HUNT RINO HUNT RINO HUNT!!!!
With the current crop of RINOs even if the Republicans do win a majority in the senate next year it will be a hollow victory. The trouble is that, just like McCain, they will be very hard to knock off.
Having a vote and voting for the person are two different thing. Mccain allow the vote and then vote for the person as well
And his Robin Lyndsey Graham.
Socialists every one, I tire of the name RINO because it misleads people as to who they really are, socialists.
