WASHINGTON — President Obama is lagging behind his two predecessors Bill Clinton and George W. Bush when it comes to installing U.S. Attorneys.

The news website Main Justice reports that both Bush and Clinton had installed 81 U.S. Attorneys in their first 19 months compared to Obama’s 66. Obama does, however, have 10 U.S. Attorneys waiting to get confirmed, Main Justice reported.

There are 93 U.S. Attorney posts in the country.

Rich Rossman, president of the National Association of former U.S. Attorneys, called the situation “very discouraging” and said he was disappointed with the Senate and the White House over the pace of the appointments, according to Main Justice.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt) told Main Justice that the Republicans are to blame, saying they’ve held up some nominees for “months and months and months.”
