Is the Senate Blocking Obama’s Judicial Nominees at Record Rates as those on the Left Postulate?

judThe question right now, even though we know these complaints are nothing more than a failed attempt to divert our attention away from the multiple scandals, is: Is the Senate Blocking Obama’s Judicial Nominees at Record Rates as those on the Left Complain About?

Note that three are A LOT of vacancies and/or soon to be vacancies to which Obama as NOT nominated anyone

According to the Senate Judicial ranking member- Senator Chuck Grassley:

Mr. President,

Before we vote on the nominees today, I want to update my colleagues on where we stand with judicial confirmations.  After tonight, the Senate will have confirmed 190 District and Circuit nominees; we have defeated two.  That’s 190-2; which is a .990 batting average.  That is an outstanding record.  Who can complain about achieving 99 percent?

So far this year, the Senate has confirmed 17 nominees.  Today, if Judge Chappell and Judge McShane are confirmed, we confirm the 18th and 19th nominees.  At this stage in President Bush’s second term only 4 were confirmed.  That’s a record of 19 to 4.
This President is being treated exceptionally fairly.

The President has recently submitted a few new nominations.  I know I have been reminding him that we can’t do anything about vacancies without him first sending up nominees.

But again, even with the recent nominations, 58 of 82 nominations still have no nominee.  And for judicial emergencies, only 6 of 32 vacancies have a nominee.

So I just wanted to set the record straight before we vote on this nominees. I expect they will both be confirmed tonight and I congratulate them on their confirmations.

According to he LA Times as recently as May 23, 2013: Obama Judicial Nominee Wins EASY Confirmation

Maybe it would BEHOOVE the Media to actually do its J-O-B and report the news instead of carrying Obama’s water full of complaints and BS. Need more proof why it would BEHOOVE the media to do so? Look at most of your ratings and decline in advertisement!
