WASHINGTON - March 26 - Moving Ideas.org, the leading source for progressive policy on the net, has released a new research companion on the controversial judicial appointments made by the Bush Administration.
Publicly the media has focused on the Senate Democrats failed filibuster attempts to stall the appointments of Judges William Pryor and Charles Pickering, while privately Bush has bypassed the Senate twice and installed the duo in recess appointments. Surprisingly, while the Administration claims Democratic obstructionism, the Senate has blocked only six of the President's nominees, and confirmed 171.
Moving Ideas has centralized research, editorials and fact sheets from progressive organizations such as the Center for American Progress, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights and National Organization for Women.
The companion includes an in depth focus on nominees Janice Rogers Brown, Carolyn Kuhl and Priscilla Owen; who are currently being blocked by Senate Democrats, but can be appointed by Bush during Congressional recess.
