Filibustering Alito: 'Beyond Ridiculous'

Here’s what Jan LaRue, chief counsel of Concerned Women for America, had to say about the Democrats’ failed filibuster:

“Senators did what is necessary in order to give Judge Alito an ‘up’ or ‘down’ vote tomorrow morning. The idea of filibustering a fine nominee like Judge Alito is beyond ridiculous—it’s an abuse of the advice-and-consent process and defies the will of the American people.

“There is absolutely nothing in Judge Alito’s past, present or foreseeable future that would justify the first-ever filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee in U.S. history.  Everything we have learned about this man confirms the fact that he should be seated on the Supreme Court.   

“We look forward to a final Senate vote tomorrow morning so that we can welcome Judge Alito as our next Supreme Court Justice.”
