    I didn't think this was going to happen this quickly.

    Considering the lack of opposition in the congress, I think we can expect things to happen very quickly. And that's not necessarily a good thing.

    I'm pretty concerned about this guy. He could be worst that Ashcroft.

    To tell the truth, Ashcroft wasn't that bad, outside of the statues thing. :rolleyes: He did have a way of getting people mad though.

    Personally, I think Gonzales is going to be more than fine.

    i think the reason for the quickness is because the dems want to save their filibusters for other judges such as for the SCOTUS. I dont think they want to waste to much time on the small fish.

    Perhaps. The SCOTUS issue is the one thing I find the greatest concern over.

    It concerns all of us. Because we are tired of having the SCOTUS overstep its bounds. we are tired of judges not reading what the law rather says but rather spinning it to mean whatever they want.

    Explain your unfounded concerns.
