Frist Says Filibusters of Bush Nominees Must End

Politics News Article | Reuters.com

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist warned Democrats to not use filibusters to stall appointment of Bush's court nominees in the new term.

For those that don't know the definition of filibuster is The use of obstructionist tactics, especially prolonged speechmaking, for the purpose of delaying legislative action. So basically the Democrats would make long speeches just to hope the Republicans would give up on appointing their nominee.

Although Frist made it sound like the democrats used this tactic often in the first four years they have appointed 200 of Bush's judicial nominees without using filibusters. They retain the right to use them on what they call "right-wing extremists."
