Bush wants the Senate to hurry up and confirm the most dangerous Supreme Court nominee in the history of the U.S.

President Bush urged senators Saturday to quickly approve his choice of Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court, even as Democrats said they would try to delay an initial vote despite the apparent momentum toward his confirmation.

"The Senate has a duty to give Judge Alito a prompt up-or-down vote," Bush said in his weekly radio address. "America is fortunate to have a man of his intellect and integrity willing to serve, and as a justice on our nation's highest court, Sam Alito will make all Americans proud."

you bet he does... unfettered executive power is almost within his grasp and the quicker alito can be confirmed, the less the chance that something might crop up to get in the way like maybe this, for instance...
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said Friday in the waning minutes of Alito's confirmation hearing that unidentified Democrats will "exercise their rights" to put off next week's scheduled vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrats say they won't be ready Tuesday to vote on his nomination since Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has called on party members to hold off making a decision until after a meeting Wednesday.
