Democrats love traditions?

Democrats are REALLY upset.  The nomination and confirmation of a Wisconsin attorney to the 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals without a “blue slip” from the home state of the nominee is “a dangerous move” as told by Senator Chuck Schumer.

“I’d admonish my friends on the other side of the aisle, this is a very dangerous road you’re treading,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “As everyone knows, the winds of political change blow swiftly in America. The minority one day is the majority the next.”


Wasn’t it Democrats that removed the filibuster for certain nominations so they could be moved forward to help Obama?

Why yes!

The warning was reminiscent of the one that Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell issued when Democrats changed the rules to lower the threshold necessary to end a filibuster for district and circuit court judges. Under the change, the Senate can cut off debate with a simple majority rather than 60 votes.

At the time, the Kentucky Republican said, “You’ll regret this, and you may regret this a lot sooner than you think.”

I guess its acceptable when Democrats decide to remove old arcane rules in the name of progress. Is not speeding up the process to make progress a good thing?

  1. When you believe you’re set unalterably on the Road to your Utopia it seems you forget both Reality and Karma.
    OTOH, not many US Senators are all that smart. Certainly not Schumer. Perhaps he’s clever or something, but he’s obviously not particularly smart.
    Our Friend the Valor Theif only wished he could be as comparatively successful with his low brainpower as Schumer is with his.

  2. This means that Congress may be even more dangerous when it’s in session and we better pay even closer attention to what they are up to no matter what party they represent or what promises they made. They only represent us by accident it seems to me.
