Miss. Lit. Review – Obama taking too long on filling empty federal judge seat

Obama should stop whining about what he can’t control and focus on what he can. Once he stops assing off in making appointments, I’ll be the first to agree with him calling out the Republicans in delaying votes.
Which brings us to Mississippi, where we are still waiting on the President to appoint a replacement to the District Court seat that was held by the late Allen Pepper. Northern District U.S. Attorney Felicia Adams is the favorite to get the seat. But others are probably jockeying for the seat and there is no indication that an appointment is imminent.
How long should it really take to name a replacement to fill a district court seat? A month? Two months? Not this damn long, for sure.
It just doesn’t seem to be a priority for the President. Obama staff members come, staff members go, but it still takes him forever to appoint judges. That’s on him.
