Pathetic is a word that comes to mind when we realize the 15 month mark has passed since President Obama’s inauguration and Mississippi remains without nominees for our two vacant U.S. Attorney positions and our one vacant federal district judge position. While recommendations were made to the White House many months ago, nothing has happened. Nothing. I recognize that Mississippi’s electoral votes mean nothing to a Democrat in the White House, but there were more than half a million Mississippians who went to the polls in November of 2008 to vote for this President. They deserve more than this pathetic display of administrative incompetence.
