So a couple days after Harry Reid decided to call President George W. Bush a “loser,” now The Senate Minority Leader wants to offer an olive branch with judicial nominees.
Griffith replaced a third, Hispanic lawyer Miguel Estrada, who withdrew his nomination for the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia after Democrats filibustered his nomination for two years.
Griffith was the Senate’s general counsel during President Clinton’s impeachment and became Brigham Young University’s general counsel in 2003.
All we seem to hear about is how Republican will be made to pay by pushing the issue of the “nuclear option”. That’s rather interesting because I happen to feel the Democrats are more worse off over the fact that Senator Reid can’t act like a leader of a party and make such comments like “I think this guy is a loser“, when referring to the President. Also, if Reid is coming from such a position of strength why does he continually want to make a deal? Hardly seems like the thing one would do when one has the upper hand.
For a political party that claims that the polls are behind them this is an awful bizarre way to act. Funny though, I believe we have heard this Democratic knee buckling before.
