Senate Republicans Filibuster an Anti-Gun Lawyer. No Judgeship. Obama Throws a Tantrum.
teapartyeconomist.com / By Gary North / March 7, 2013
In 2011, President Obama nominated an anti-gun activist lawyer for a federal judge position.
This woman believes that the courts should hold gun manufacturers liable for crimes committed with guns they made. This is judicial activism on a scale rarely seen.
It take 60 votes to stop a filibuster. Democrats could muster only 51 votes yesterday.
This is the second time she has had her appointment blocked. The first time was in December 2011. The Democrats could muster only 55 votes then.
She is falling behind.
This nomination was DOA in 2011.
People For the American Way is outraged, as we can see here. That’s politics, boys. Win some, lose some. They lost.
