Looks Like Romney Won After All

Explain to me how the appointments to these judicial positions would be any worse with a Republican president in power than what we’re having ramrodded down our throats by the Obama Administration?

Maybe there aren’t a lot of choices when it comes to picking federal judges in the South, but that’s no excuse for the president to nominate someone that would make Newt Gingrich rub his hands together with glee:

NARAL Pro-Choice America announced Wednesday that it is launching a new campaign to defeat Georgia state Judge Michael Boggs, whom Obama nominated in December to serve on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The group is alarmed by votes that Boggs took — as a state legislator in the early 2000s — to “channel funds to anti-choice crisis pregnancy centers and make a parental consent law even more extreme,” according a petition emailed to NARAL supporters.

[H]e is part of an all-or-nothing package of six judicial nominees agreed to by the president and Georgia’s two Republican senators, Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson, months ago. Obama made some pretty big concessions: Four of the six nominees are GOP picks, and just one of the six is African American — a lack of diversity that Georgia Democrats argue doesn’t reflect the population those judges will oversee.
