    Although Republicans talk of obstruction, the fact is that President Bush had more of his judges confirmed in his first term than either President Reagan, the first President Bush, or President Clinton had confirmed in their first four years. President Bush had 204 of his appointees to the federal bench confirmed, out of a total of 877 judicial seats. President Bush filled the seats he inherited as a result of Republican obstruction of Clinton nominees – plus newly created seats -- with his own appointees, many of whom were selected for ideological reasons rather than through the customary and well-established bipartisan judicial selection commissions.

    The difference is there was no unconstitutional filibuster of judicial nominees for Reaga, Bush 1 and Clinton. These nominees have passed the judicial comittee. Many of them have been voted on before. give them an up or down vote. Is it too much to expect the Democrats to actually vote on issues?
