Who In the Hell Do the Donks Think They Are??

The Donks are Power Hungry, and have gone over the edge, thinking that they can command the President to "consult" with them on a Supreme Court nomination.
WASHINGTON -- Senate Democrats are urging President Bush to consult with them on a possible Supreme Court nomination to help avoid the kind of controversy that engulfed his lower court picks.

"The way to avoid the divisiveness and discord that occurred over past judicial nominations is through consensus and cooperation in the selection of future candidates," the Senate Democrats said in a letter sent to the White House on Thursday.

The letter, signed by 43 of 44 Democrats and independent Sen. Jim Jeffords of Vermont, called bipartisan cooperation "the best path to a fair and reasoned confirmation process."

Schumer, Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the Judiciary Committee's senior Democrat, and Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, called for Bush to consult with Democrats.

"It doesn't take much to get our consent," Kennedy said. "All the president has to do is seek out his preferred non-ideological choices, ask us about them, and listen to our answers."

Let's see, the last time I checked the Constitution it said that the President had the power "...by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate...shall appoint ... Judges of the Supreme Court,..." I didn't see anywhere in the Constitution that the President had to listen to the Obstruction Power Hungry Donks!! Nope, checked again and didn't see it. The President can take Advice from the Senate and it doesn't have to be any of the MINORITY PARTY members. It really doesn't matter who President Bush appoints, if they are even the littlest bit conservative the Donks are going to have a hissy fit, so why bother. It is going to get down and dirty when the time come to approve an appointment to the Supreme Court, it is going to be the Donks at their dirtiest, and it definitely won't be pretty.
