Weakening America, cont.

Posted: December 3, 2010 in Judiciary, Non-AZ

Sen. Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee urged lawmakers to move forward and vote on the nominees before them.  Sen. Jeff Sessions objected to the request. 

Why?  Because its all part of the larger Republican “strategery” of obstructionism. The “Possibility of Nope”.  If it wasn’t so laughable, it would be criminal.  Particularly since the entire judiciary, liberal and conservative justices, have pleaded with the Senate to finish filling the 34 remaining posts, including the position of Deputy Attorney General.  Cases are getting backed up and the time it takes to do anything in the Federal system is lengthening. 

Remember the saying, “Justice delayed is justice denied”?  That certainly is the case here.  However, Republicans evidently don’t care.  Undermining the delivery of justice in America, one of the hallmarks of our system, weakens America and chips away at our national moral character.
