I agree with you. 100%.
I don't know the answer to that question.
I hadn't known you had a blog, Oxen. What a great site!
President Bush ought to call a press conference and READ THIS LIST OFF in front of ALL the Media!
can someone check a few of these quotes? the Congressional Record is online and searchable. I tried to check a couple and my browser won't open the text. But some of the page numbers appear in discussion that don't seem to be about judges.
I just happened on that thread when I did a search for filibuster. I saw the fourth one down and just said "HHHMMMMMMM".
I would have missed that had you not linked it here and hope you are able to link it to other threads as well.
I agree with you!
Most of those quotes give the date and where the statement can be found.
Sarcasm aside, I'm sure this is their claim if someone brings it up. After all, according ABC News, the Republicans were the ones filibustering against civil rights.
I saved that and several more to a word document for a fast backup to the search feature.
I'll reply to myself ... I managed to get my browser working and I did check one quote which is a little out of context (it's about secret holds not filibusters) but the basic idea is the same.
Oh, those pesky facts. The MSM is not interested
So, he is making the argument to get all of the nominees out of committee. That could be the next battle, it certainly is a different battle from getting votes on nominees now on the floor.
It looks like it's all from the Congressional Record of the late 90s. Pretty unimpeachable source...
I started doing that way back when, and have several word files just for FR. That is much eaiser to work with and I can find most within minutes.
Thought it would be a good idea to put them all together.
Good job! This makes the point so effectively. I hope Rush, Fox and others pick this up, since we know we'll never hear it anywhere else.
