The sudden death of Justice Scalia creates an immediate vacancy on the most important court in the United States.

 

Senator McConnell is right that the American people should have a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court justice. In fact, they did — when President Obama won the 2012 election by five million votes.

 

Article II Section 2 of the Constitution says the President of the United States nominates justices to the Supreme Court, with the advice and consent of the Senate. I can't find a clause that says "...except when there's a year left in the term of a Democratic President."

 

Senate Republicans took an oath just like Senate Democrats did. Abandoning the duties they swore to uphold would threaten both the Constitution and our democracy itself. It would also prove that all the Republican talk about loving the Constitution is just that — empty talk.

 


I am fucking drop dead amazed that someone running for the office of POTUS would have so little knowledge of the Constitution and history of this country that they would even suggest that the Senate and the seated President forego their duties because doing so may threaten their political agenda. This country is rapidly becoming ungovernable and the GOPs pathetic  groveling and manipulation on this matter is certainly contributing

They found this in the penumbra.

Nothing in the constitution requires the Senate to approve a candidate if they don't want to.

Actually, I think it was Cruz who was first out of the gate crying like a little girl at the possibility that Obama might exercise his Constitutional perogative to nominate someone. Pretty sure he's not a democrat.

I mean this in the very nicest way, but we will never forgive the Left and the civil rights industry for the shameful lying and defamation against Judge Bork.

Maybe in 400 years Democrat nominees will get a fair shake.

Looking forward to seeing how that reflexive petulance serves you in the upcoming election. smile.gif

And of course, the civil rights industry should never forgive white people for lynchings and Jim Crow, so will never run short of entertaining slapstick.





Oh, and I'll just note that I'm pretty sure I'm on record as having said around here somewhere that despite being an arrogant, short-sighted douche who did himself no favors, Bork should have been confirmed.
Or, alternatively, Bjork. She definitely would have been our cutest SCJ and would have brought an important international perspective.

It's nice that somewhere, at some time, everyone on the political spectrum has done something for which they simply cannot be forgiven, ever. It makes things so much simpler.

Agreed. It has a kind of beauty to it.

Which part?



Munch laughs about Dems getting anticipatorily upset about SCOTUS vacancy. Several people point out that's mistaken at best, since several "leading" Repubs were way out in front in getting anticipatorily worked up about it.

Lighthouse suggests it's payback for Bork, because past offenses by the likes of the civil rights industry in opposing his nomination require ceaseless and eternal retribution.

Several people point out that it's ironic at best to suggest that old blows may never be forgotten and then carp about the "civil rights industry" starting a fight in 1987.

Profit.
