Now we will see if the republican in the senate have the "shorts" to get off their collective @$$e$ and do something besides cower to the socialists in the senate. Time will tell. But, if history is any gage, these folks will not get passed.

There was a column after the elections that said Bush's SOTU speech could consist of him standing up and saying "I own this town" and then sit down. So now we will find out if this is true....for sure we have all put a ton of effort into this so the judges would be changed out. This I think was the most single important reason for voting Republican.

Frist wants to be president. He better deliver on this or he won't make it to the first primary.

What is with the Pubbies anyway? The way they act, you would think the RATs had a 75-25 majority.

Can anyone please show me a example of when out illustrious MAJORITY leader used his position to force something through? For that matter has he taken a firm stand when it mattered on any subject?

God bless the healing hands of a doctor, but I don't want the Senate run by a man too worried about offending future voters for his presidential candidacy to use a heavy hand when it's needed. Lord knows the Democrats never shirked from it in fourty years.

So far, depending on what comes next, I don't have any problem with how Frist and the President have played this. It became a campaign issue that helped them dethrone Daschle and add seats. (I'm not one of those who would have played the nuclear option card earlier...I can envision a day where I would like to see a Republican minority blocking judges. But if it comes to that, Frist appears to be ready at which time he will have optimized the political damage to the Democrats.)

Amen to that. By using the filibuster tactic they have already shown their willingness to use everything in their arsenal to block Bush's judicial nominees.

If it comes down to it, the repubs should use the nuclear option, for that reason. Hopefully it won't come to that, but the way they have been acting I wonder if it shouldn't have been done already.

I'd give them one more opportunity, but if it looks, sounds, or even smells like they are willing to filibuster again, then by all means, push the dang button. At this point I see no sense in letting them get away with undermining the people, their representatives, and their president.

The fact that they've placed Howard Dean in control of the DNC ought to be a clue as to what their response is going to be. But we'll see soon enough.

Watch the usual suspects and their same, inane,
talking points..prepared by the paid guy in DC..
think name is Neves or similar. They all get a
panicky smile on their face when faced with these
momentous decisions...wimps. If the nominee is
qualified and has been reviewed by the bar,etc. and
is recommended by the President...Why do they come
up with .."he has thoughts about beating his Mother-In-Law"..or some other Kennedyism. Jake

Miguel asked that his name be withdrawn.

By the way, talked to a well-known Senator this past weekend. Republicans are calling the simple majority vote the "Constitutional" option, not the nuclear option.

The nuclear option is what the Dems did with the filibusters. He also told me that Robert Byrd changed the same rule 3 times on filibusters and that Trent Lott had done so twice. So there is precedent for the change in the Senate rules.

Also, it appears that Janice Rogers Brown will be the first up. She is a conservative black female who sits on the California Supreme Court. And get this -- she is the daughter of a sharecropper from Greenville, Alabama (about 40 miles south of Montgomery, AL.
