    This is just shameful. These antics are absolutely groundless and obstructionist. They threaten to throttle the judicial system in the name of who know what but not the best interests of our country, our citizens or the future of each.

    The Judicial Nomination Process has become a circus on both sides of the aisle for sometime...but seriously the Republicans have kept these seats vacant for so long our Judcial System is Seriously Overstressed! Enough is enough...jeez guys O'Bama's in his second term and you are withholding some nominations and asking brilliant candidates to put their life through 2 plus years of ridiculous ridicule. SHAME on you POMPUS FOOLISH Senators...I hope your constituents see you for the crazy legislators you are and throw you back in the Private Sector to suffer the humility you deserve! Hire this good man and move on!
