I am greatly dismayed about the “agreement” with respect to judicial nominations that was brokered by those most view as dissidents within the Republican caucus.
When the other party held the Senate, its leaders did not allow dissident members to subvert its agenda. The present Republican caucus, by contrast, appears to be governed as much by its dissidents as it is by its leadership. This is a profound and continuing disappointment to those of us whose votes gave Republicans their current majority.
Agreements are only as good as the word of those making the agreement. Considering the past actions of the parties to this so-called “agreement,” it is worthless. I wrote my Republican Senators and strongly urged them to not support it.
The President, the nominees, and the American people deserve a recorded, up-or-down vote on every single judicial nomination without undue delay. Why can’t the GOP stand firm and insist that these votes begin immediately and continue until all nominations have been acted upon?p>I am forced to consider two disheartening scenarios. Are Republicans incapable of the leadership and resolve that is required to enact a policy agenda? Or do they not care enough about the agenda to give it more than a token effort? br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
