Bust Judicial Filibusters

by C. Boyden Gray - May 13th, 2005 - Human Events Online
As Republican leaders have moved closer to restoring 214 years of Senate tradition of giving judicial nominees an up-or-down vote, Democrats have launched an aggressive defense of their unprecedented use of the filibuster that is based on mythology, not fact.

Elections must have consequences. This article shows some of the ways in which democrats are twisting logic and history upside down. There is no honest precedent for their refusal to allow an up or down vote on these judicial nominees. Certainly there is no precedent to take an entire group of nominees, including Janice Rogers Brown, and spread the extremist lies about them that democrats are spreading.
