Kerry Calls For Alito Filibuster
Never mind the majority of Americans favor Alito’s confirmation, the Senator’s from Massachusetts are ginning up campaign contributions and bowing to pressure from special interests groups. Kerry’s move is a purely political stunt and surely aimed to please his recent blogging host, Kos and like-minded left-wingers.
Everyone that has paid attention to the confirmation process knows Judge Alito is superbly qualified to sit on the Supreme Court. Rasmussen found in every state that the firm polled, a plurality or majority believes Alito should be confirmed. In New Jersey, 53% favor Alito’s confirmation, 28% oppose. Who’s out of the mainstream?
Meanwhile, New Jersey Senators Frank Lautenberg and Bob Menendez claim they have yet to decide how vote on Alito’s confirmation. Give them a call and help them decide to vote yes on confirmation.
Senator Frank Lautenberg - 202-224-3224
Senator Bob Menendez - 202-224-4744
Update: Kerry explains his rationale for an Altio filibuster on his blog host, Kos.
