    Sen. Vitter holding up Obama appointments until drilling permits are issued for the gulf.

    Sen Mary Landreau tried the same tactic last Fall but was duped into believing they would issue new permits after the moritorium was lifted. Well, it was lifted, she approved an appointment but no permits have been issued!

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

    He won't need the lack of drilling permits as a reason to jump on not approving Obama's judge nominess
