Let's get it right this time

From The Christian Post:

President Bush on Monday submitted 20 judicial nominees, including seven U.S. Circuit Court nominees whom Democrats filibustered in the last Congress.

“I'm pleased that the president has renominated these excellent women and men to serve on the federal bench," said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, Tennessee Republican. "I'm hopeful that Democrats will work with me to get up-or-down votes on each nominee.”

While the President’s choice angered many democrats, conservative Christians and republicans hailed the choices and called on the Senate to allow each nominee to at least face an up or down vote.

"Whether senators love a nominee or not, it's time to vote them up-or-down," said Jan LaRue, chief counsel of Concerned Women for America.

During Bush’s first term, Democrats blocked 10 of his judicial nominees. Additioanlly, more than a dozen were left hanging without a vote when Congress came to a close last year.

A solid win -- no re-election to worry about -- George is a wild man. Go get 'em, Dubya. Whoop up on 'em good.
