Senate Democrats lambasted one of President Barack Obama's picks for a federal judgeship in Georgia on Tuesday, skewering him for his past votes on abortion and the Confederate flag.
It was unclear whether Michael Boggs' nomination to become a federal district judge in Georgia was in peril. He is now a judge on that state's appeals court.

So look at it from the lib perspective....you get one moderately conservative judge who will be picked apart now due to the Confederate battle flag issue and Bammy and Co. get six lib judges no one will question.
Yes, sir....that's real negotiating the gop-e is doing.
he doesn’t care about party politics now, it is payback time, all those people that helped him up till now are calling in their markers. And thats a long list.
The GOPe would rather have all liberal judges than to have to defend one conservative. It makes their spines go all squishy.
He does not have any idea nor care in the world about the symbolism of the confederate flag
So I think we can get over THAT part of this story
God bless the guy. Confirm him before Barry sobers up.
