    started filling the federal judiciary with right wing activists, our rights have been whittled away decision by terrible decision. It has happened in the state courts as well. Citizens United, Heller (announcing a new interpretation of the second amendment after 200 years), trashing union rights and the free speech rights of public employees (Garcetti) and now the Voting Rights Act is imperiled. These are just a few examples. Reagan, Bush I and II basically got the conservative appointments they wanted (Bork the exception), even when the Dems held the Senate. Obama can't even get moderates appointed, even though the Dems hold the Senate. Grow a backbone Harry...the judicial branch is really important!
