The republicans never used a filibuster against a judge.

In 1968 the republicans never filibustered Abe Fortas for 4 days.

Many don't. And many who do don't agree with everything they say. If you have been paying attention to anything in the past few years you would have heard about the decline of conservative support for the Republican Party. This lack of support is one of the reasons why Bush began to lose popularity and why McCain lost by a wider margin.

Bush also lost republicans who are now embarrassed to call themselves republicans ...they now prefer 'conservative'

Who did the conservatives vote for in 2008 ?

Most voted for McCain. Why? Because even though he is not a true conservative, he is a fricken radical conservative compared to Obama. Other Conservatives may have voted third party, or simply not voted at all.

They didn't think he was fit for Chief.

But the bribe was only brought to light in 69 ...a year after the first judical filibuster in the history of our nation.

To claim the dems created it 10 years ago is absurd.

Can you post a yes or no ? ...or are you totally against debate ? ...maybe you are only into cracking jokes and calling names like the rest of the sheep on this site.

You know as well as I do ...Abe was the first judge to be filibustered. And he was never found guilty.

Baaaa.

He was hardly a saint


During those hearings, Fortas lied to the Committee, although he had not yet been caught in that lie. The Senate recessed without voting on the nomination. When Senator Robert Griffin learned in September that Fortas had accepted $15,000 to give some summer school lectures at American Universityís law school, money that had been raised by Fortasís former partners and clients, the nomination was in trouble.

In early October, after a vote to end the filibuster on the nomination failed, Fortas asked that his nomination be withdrawn. By 1969, further revelations led Fortas to resign from the Court. A convicted financier named Louis Wolfson had agreed to pay Fortas $20,000 per year for the remainder of his life, an amount that continued until the death of his wife if Fortas died before she did. Fortas received the first check in January 1966, after joining the Court, and though he returned it in December, Fortas's actions were condemned as ethically improper.

Looks to me like he should never have had the nomination.
