As if there needs to be more trotted out before the public.
Sen Leahy has vowed to out any Republican that delays the confirmation of Obama Supreme Court nominees.
“Today, however, there will be no more secret and anonymous Republican holds. Any effort to oppose the president’s nominees — executive or judicial — will have to withstand public scrutiny.”
But just three years ago, Leahy led an effort to do just that with Bush nominee Sam Alito.
“Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the panel’s top Democrat, said: ‘This arrangement accommodates Republicans and Democrats.'”
What could be done by Democrats three years ago, will no longer be tolerated by Democrats now with The One in office. What was good ol’ fashioned bi-partisanship three years ago is now just partisan hackery.
