Did you really do all this research yourself? It must have taken months. Or can you cite the source who compiled all this?
I would like to use this in tomorrows issue of Christian-news-in-maine.com would that be alright?
Great post! Thanks for compiling this list. Very similar to the list of dem. quotes regarding Iraq, made pre-2003.
the sources are listed.
Well, knock me over with a feather. So are the Democrats still calling for an up or down vote on "everyone who is nominated?" (Hee hee hee)
Wow! Great list. Hopefully, NRO, Drudge or Rush picks up on it.
The sources are listed, but the researchers are anonymous. Someone should get som credit for this.
Not to mention it should be read by Rush.
I didn't do the research; other freepers did.
We should call the offending Senators and remind them of their OWN words!
Feel free to use the list; other Freepers did the hard work and found the quotes.
I'm just back from the beach and other freepers did the research; not me.
But you must understand, those nominees were in the 'mainstream' and should not be filibustered. Bush's nominees are evil conservatives bent on restoring the Constitution we are trying so hard to kill (since it is a 'living, breathing document', and we failed to abort it in 1787), so they are out of the 'mainstream' that we get to define. /Dingy Harry Reid mode off
Isn't it amazing how the conservatives are always out of the mainstream but we control all branches of government?
Can't wait for the MSM to be responsible and accurately depict the historical quotes on this issue.....
I should probably pack a lunch....
I guess it doesn't "fit" their agenda, what other explanation could there be?????
After all they're very good at throwing Republican quotes back in their faces.
Good job, why doesn't Russert bring these statements up on the video tape. I'm sure some of them have to recorded somewhere.
FYI, I emailed NRO, Drudge and Fox News with the list.
We need to send the list of quotes to FNC, RUsh, etc.
I've just drafted a letter to my local newspaper which has an opening sentence and then proceeds to list the quotes.
The average American will "get" it.
