    There are several discussions about the filibuster, why its happening, whether it is right or wrong. Lost in all of these, seems to be the people who are sitting in limbo, waiting for the senate. Some have removed their names, tired of waiting, tired of having their characters impugned.

    So here are just a few of the more well-known judges waiting....for those here who oppose them, or even if you just think that the Democratic memebers of the Senate have every right to keep filibustering their appointments...can you tell me why?

    Why are you opposed to these people? What have they done, what do they believe, support, represent, what do they do, that you disagree with?

    most all of them have been accused of right wing judicial activism, most of them by their own peers on the benches they currently serve. Many, if not all of them, have had rulings overturned because they were in direct opposition of the precedents for those states that they currently reside in.

    Specific examples please. I hear this all the time, yet I have not seen ONE example. If they have had rulings overturned (as if NO judge ever does :rolleyes: ) then the info should be readily available.

    with the exception of janice brown, all of the others have served, or are serving, on conservative courts. You want to try and convince me that the 4th and 5th circuits are liberal courts? :smoke:

    So is it their "judicial activism", which you haven't given examples of, the condemnation of their "peers", which you haven't provided links to, or the fact that they sit on conservative courts (except that one of them doesn't) that gives the Democrats a reason to halt their nomination?

    well, lets break this down. Those on the right decry 'judicial activism', yet seem perfectly willing to accept that activism when its based on right wing activism. pretty hypocritical.

    the condemnation of their peers SHOULD be a major factor for most people. Here in texas, alberto gonzales is considered pretty conservative, yet now that word has gotten out that he declared Owens a 'judicial activist', now he's not THAT conservative. :rolleyes:

    I only brought up that they sit on conservative courts to reply to dillo and his claim about 'liberal' rulings.

    Oh, well - if People for the American Way don't like these folks, they MUST be heinous.

    and THUS begins the demonization of another group of people. By all means, lets just ignore all the relevant facts they list and attack the messenger.
