Obama Declares Open Warfare On Senate GOP With Judicial Picks

Barack Obama speech 7 SC Obama Declares Open Warfare on Senate GOP with Judicial Picks

A combative President Obama declared open warfare Tuesday on Senate Republicans over judicial nominations, naming three candidates to the influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and blasting GOP lawmakers for delaying and blocking previous nominees.

The new nominations come at a time when the system envisioned by the founders is being tested from all sides.

Federal courts have moved to curtail Mr. Obama’s recess appointment powers, even as Senate Republicans flex their filibuster powers and Democrats consider using the so-called nuclear option to change the rules and end the GOP’s ability to filibuster nominees altogether.

After weeks of growing pressure, the president moved Tuesday to force the issue, daring Republicans to block three people with long and distinguished legal careers.

“This is not about principled opposition; this is about political obstruction,” Mr. Obama said. “What’s happening now is unprecedented. For the good of the American people, it has to stop.”

  1. Before Obama was elected I was researching his background and as far as I conclude the man was a sociopath. All the markers were there…the narcissism, the lies, the charisma, the swagger, the cocaine attitude, the undying thirst for power.

  2. OK, so O has declared open warfare on Senate GOP with judicial picks. NOW is the time for the Senate to repay the favor to O by collectively agreeing with the House and start impeachment or prosecution against O. Turn-about is fair play and it's time to play O's game and stop being nice. PLEASE – phone or email all of your congressmen and demand proceedings be started immediately!!!!!
