But It’s NOT Republican Obstruction….Is It? – ‘Mitch McConnell Says Obama’s Circuit Court Nominees Won’t Be Confirmed Anymore’

‘Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Thursday that he doesn’t expect to confirm any of Obama’s circuit court nominees for the remainder of his time in office, a blow to White House efforts to fill empty federal court seats despite working with a Republican-controlled Senate’.

“So far, the only judges we’ve confirmed have been federal district judges that have been signed off on by Republican senators,” McConnell said. Asked if he expects that to be the case through 2016, McConnell said, “I think that’s highly likely, yeah.”

‘If McConnell is serious, that means at least two GOP-backed circuit court nominees are toast’.

‘Beyond them, there are an additional seven circuit court vacancies around the country that don’t yet have nominees. If McConnell’s vow is true, none of those seats will get filled, either’.

‘For some context: President George W. Bush had to work with a Democratic Senate in his final two years in office’.

‘By this point in Bush’s seventh year, the Senate had confirmed 15 of his district court nominees and three circuit court nominees’.

So tell me again there’s no difference between the parties……..

  2. This is nothing new for Mitch McConnell. Does anyone remember what he said the night President Obama was inaugurated the first time around? “The top priority of the Republican party is to get rid of President Obama”! He’s still trying! Is he an American??
