Obama Nominated Confederate Flag Supporting Judge (Plus real marriage, abortion, etc)

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.

At a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats repeatedly challenged his votes as a Georgia state legislator a decade ago. They focused on his support for measures to post information online about doctors who perform abortions and to keep the Confederate battle emblem on the Georgia flag.

Harry Reid and the libs going crazy! The Judge not liberal enough. Democrats want no part of him! This is funny. Recommended to the Kenyan by two GOP US Senators in Georgia. So now we can sit back and watch the worthless Harry Reid kill the nomination.

If I recall isn't this part of the "deal" that bammy and company got in return for six of his judges being appointed to the bench in Georgia?

the two GA senators "reached across the isle" to avoid the filibuster.

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.

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
