Iran is not the only ones going nuclear -- so is Harry Reid. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington. In 2005, then-minority leader Harry Reid took to the floor of the U.S. and said that it would be un-American if the Republicans were to use the nuclear option and change Senate rules stopping Democrats from filibustering President Bush's judicial nominees. Well, put Harry Reid in the un-American column. The now majority leader pushed the nuclear option button effectively silencing the Senate minority and all but guaranteeing the president's nominees will be confirmed. Trust me; Senate Republicans have rarely displayed political courage, stopping only a handful of nominees -- nominees that ideologically would have been to the left of Hugo Chavez. The President is now free to pack the courts with ideologues that will both advance and protect his socialist policies. There is a reason that God gave specific guidance in the selection of judges. Few things will ruin a society quicker than unqualified, activist judges.
