Unfortunately, the Democrats in Washington don't quite see it that way. So, Barack Obama has put a hold on the nomination.
Obama’s opposition “is nothing more than fear-mongering with potential liberal voters,” said Todd Gaziano, who follows FEC issues for the conservative Heritage Foundation. He said Obama’s hold smacks of “desperation in his political campaign.”
Fear mongering? Excuse me? Fear mongering is telling Americans "Revoke your Constitutional Rights, the terrorists are coming! The terrorists are coming!". Fear mongering is saying that if the Republicans lose, the terrorist win. But, putting forth an honest objection about someone who has been accused of messing with elections, saying that (umm, hello?) maybe he shouldn't be in charge of federal elections - that's not fear mongering.
I'm glad Obama did this, I wish others had the guts to do it, too. Here's why he did it, in his own words.
