@SenateMajLdr #GOP “I think the president is entitled to an up-or-down — that is simple majority — vote on nominations, both to his Cabinet and to the executive branch and also to the judiciary. The filibuster was not used for 200 years. The country did just fine. Sometimes the court would jag off to the left, and sometimes it would slide over to the right. Presidents trying to mold the Supreme Court is nothing new. It’s not inappropriate. And we need to get back to tradition, and the tradition is a majority is enough to confirm a judge.” - YOU, March 2005, CNBC’s Kudlow & Company
