Arlen Specter promised to advance the movement to the floor of the Senate of the Presidents judicial appointments. Instead, he delayed the hearings for Alito until January, has made no effort to move nominees languishing in the committee in a timely fashion and has refused to sign off on the renewal of the Patriot Act to let it out of the committee for a final vote. I have searched Technorati but no one seems to care.
Conservatives were concerned about Specter being chairman of the Judicial Committee, but were assured that he would do the job required of him. Now it appears that he has other priorities. Even Hugh despairs.
