Politics

Here is what Oklahoma's Senator Inhofe said about the use of filibuster against a judicial nominee. And not just on one occasion. It's unconstitutional.

And this is what he had to say yesterday:

Mr. President, it was my understanding earlier that I had about 15 more minutes than the 30 minutes that I understand are allotted me now. So if there is time at the end of my main message, I wish to address the problem of the David Hamilton nomination. In fact, I will announce that I will filibuster that nomination.

Isn't it funny how so many politicians rediscover their principles once their party is out of power?

A similar example is in Rep. McMorris' most recent newsletter where she states:

"Because of this wasteful Washington spending, I have supported and voted for a balanced budget. I firmly believe the federal government should prioritize spending just like hard working families."If only we had had someone with Cathy McMorris' courage and fiscal discipline in office when this whole budget mess began.

If you watched her on KSPS, right at the end she did say she does not want Obama to fail. So maybe she's only sipping the Kool-aid. :-)
