Obama Received More Judicial Confirmations than Bush Did, Senator Says

From the Daily Signal [1]:

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, is pushing back against the idea that the judicial nomination process is broken after being criticized for not holding a hearing to confirm President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, tasked with checking the president’s power to appoint federal judges, has held hearings for 38 of Obama’s judicial nominations and has confirmed 324 of his judicial nominees during this session of Congress, a committee progress report [2] released Wednesday says. The report claims this number is higher than President George W. Bush’s 303 confirmed judicial appointees at this point in his two terms in office.
