Senate approves Ogden, Perelli at Justice

WASHINGTON - The Senate filled the No. 2 and 3 positions at the Justice Department on Thursday, pushing aside objections from conservative Republicans who questioned the nominees’ positions on pornography and the right to die.

David Ogden was confirmed 65-28 for the second-ranking position of deputy attorney general, and Thomas Perelli was approved 72-20 for the third-ranking slot of associate attorney general. Attorney General Eric Holder had expressed concerns that he was operating the Justice Department without his top deputies.

Sen. Robert Casey, D-Pa., joined 27 Republicans to oppose Ogden, while all the opposition to Perelli came from Republicans.

Senate approves Ogden, Perelli at Justice

Today the Senate voted to make the pornographers best friend, David Ogden, the Deputy AG to Eric Holder. Oh goodie, just what we need, another ultra libber POS in Justice, giving Holder a new *right hand man* in his efforts to subvert everything that is right and just in this nation!

The list of votes FOR and against the pornographers best friend and The list of votes FOR and against Perelli

While Perelli doesn’t appear to be quite as disgusting as Ogden, he is still a highly controversial pick, he represented the husband of Terri Schiavo, pro-bono, in his bid to take Ms. Schiavo off of life support a while back. That was a move that did not sit well with MANY Conservatives and right to life folks. An autopsy showed she had irreversible brain damage, but for many, that wasn’t the issue. Life itself, regardless the quality OF that life, was their issue.

Brownback said the case, in which Perelli provided free legal representation, raised issues about “whether we protect life in a diminished qualitative state.”

One of my Senators, Kay Bailey Hutchison, voted against the confirmation of both of these despicable individuals. Sen. John Cornyn did not vote on either one, for some reason he wasn’t in the Senate, that’s a story I would like to hear. At this point in time, even if you KNOW it’s a losing cause, EVERY VOTE COUNTS!!

Check the links above and see how your Senator voted on the confirmation of Ogden and Perelli. If you are a REAL Conservative I hope you’ll use YOUR vote to show the DOOR to any RINOs on those lists!

    And once again, Lamar Alexander makes me quite pleased I did NOT vote for him, and never will!

  2. Katie says:

    Their nominations were never in doubt. Not with this Congress!

    I’m sure glad the Ky boys reflect our feelings.

  4. Bloviating Zeppelin says:

    Hmmm. Feinstein and Boxer. I WONDER how they voted? I am perplexed.

    My Republican senator, Kit Bond voted for this POS. Bond, who was thought of as a Conservative isn’t running for reelection and has apparently decided to become a RINO, voting for the earmark laded budget. And, he had quite a few of his earmarks in the budget. My other senator, McCaskill is nothing but Obama’s lap dog.

    I knew Shaheen would vote for any loser that Obambi appointed, I got my polite eat shit I am the senator letter back from her about Holder yesterday. It was laced with the usual “his track record” and “Iam sure that the president wouldn’t appoint” Bull. I still have not heard back from Gregg on that. (Maybe he ran out of postaage money after responding to all my other letters) But once again the Ambush RINO stabbed me in the back again. What a disappointment. GRRRR

    My father sent this today, I thought it was appropriate considering the times,

    By Charlie Reese
    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

    Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

    Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

    You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.

    You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

    You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

    You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

    You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank..

    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.

    The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red .

    If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it’s because they want them in IRAQ

    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

    There are no insoluble government problems.

    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

    Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

    They, and they alone, have the power.

    They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.

    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
