Chief justice urges progress naming judges - Yahoo! News
I don't agree with Roberts often, but when he is right, he is right. This is not a republican or democrat issue. Both do it. It is also a fairly important issue. We need to get enough judges out there as people do have a right to timely justice. We have to stop playing petty politics with every god damned thing and start working to do what is right. This is true for republicans and democrats alike.AP today 4 am-Republicans and Democrats must find a long-term solution to selecting federal judges, Chief Justice John Roberts says, while blaming both sides for the political gridlock of judicial nominations in the Senate.
"Each political party has found it easy to turn on a dime from decrying to defending the blocking of judicial nominations, depending on their changing political fortunes," Roberts said Friday in his year-end report. "This has created acute difficulties for some judicial districts. Sitting judges in those districts have been burdened with extraordinary caseloads."
