RIGHT ON RED4
Where The Left Takes A Turn For The Worse








I voted for Bill Frist in 2000, and I was thrilled when he became Senate Majority Leader; in my mind, it was good for America and great for Tennessee. However, as Political Wire reports (in reference to this Washington Post article), Frist's political cache is not what it once was.

There is one overriding reason for this: the obstruction of Bush's judicial appointments. If Frist had forced the Democrats to filibuster, he would be the hero of every Republican in the country and a shoe-in for the Presidential nomination in 2008. Instead, he surrendered at the mere threat of a filibuster, leaving the Constitution undefended. This created a de facto Democrat majority and amounted to an abandonment of representative government.

It is an outrage that with Republicans in control of all three branches of government, the President's constitutional prerogative to appoint judges is thwarted by a bluff. The blame for this rests almost solely on Frist's weakness as Majority Leader.
