Senate RINOs Help Confirm Another Radical to Appellate Court

While most observers of the federal judiciary focus on the 5-4 conservative majority on the Supreme Court, there are few people who realize how Obama is stacking the district and appellate courts with radicals.  Republicans have 47 votes in the Senate to block these unqualified judges, yet the RINOs continue to confirm them.

Yesterday, the Senate voted to confirm Paul Watford 61-34, with the help of 9 Republicans.  Watford worked for the  American Civil Liberties Union and the National Immigration Law Center to assail those states that enact laws to stem the tide of illegal immigration.  Let’s take a step back for a moment.  Earlier this month, the Supreme Court laughed the government’s lawsuit against Arizona out of court, yet this guy, who argued against Arizona, was now confirmed to an appellate court.

This is the 146th judge the Senate has confirmed for Obama. While liberal organizations will complain that Bush and Clinton enjoyed a higher rate of confirmation, they forget to mention the fact that many of Obama’s nominees are radical ideologues that don’t belong on the bench.  Even Bill Clinton, for the most part, nominated judges who had a respectable record of jurisprudence.

Keep in mind that only a small percentage of cases ever reach the Supreme Court.  Most cases are decided at the district and appellate levels.  Obama is quickly stacking those courts with people who should never be confirmed, yet there are always a number of Republicans willing to do his bidding.  Then again, on the bright side, the 9th Circuit is already hopelessly deranged.  There is not much more we can do to make it more radical.

Below the fold, you can find the names of the 9 Republican senators who voted to confirm this radical.
