The Senate Is Very Unlikely To Confirm A Scalia Replacement This Year …Oh, Jesus Fucking Christ!
Again the Senate Republicans have vowed to block every single nomination our president might make just because they hate him. What the fuck is wrong with these people? They said that at the start of his presidency and they are still saying it at the end.
“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new President,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement.
In my opinion, anyone who makes an obstructionist vow against Barack Obama while he is our president should be tried and convicted of treason. Found an article published in Newsweek a few years ago that addresses this…Talking Treason: Is Hatred of Obama Trumping Patriotism?
Some comments I’ve seen online regarding Republican obstructionism:
“We did. When we elected Barack Obama president 40 months ago.” (in reference to the McConnell statement)
“The Majority Leader of the Senate and two serving Senators who are currently running for President of the United States of America, all of whom swore an oath on the Bible to protect and defend the Constitution, have publicly advocated the subversion of said Constitution for purely partisan political posturing. Before searching for his nominee for the Supreme Court, President Obama should oversee the construction the gallows needed to hang these traitors.”
“ The vacancy should be filled as soon as possible. That’s the job of the President and Congress. If Congress refuses then they’re just playing the role of the Dead Beat Party and obstructing for the sake of obstructing once again. Do your jobs Republican assholes.“
“He can recess appoint. He can apply pressure to the vulnerable GOP Senators up for re-election. This is a loser issue for Republicans.“
I don’t remember hearing anything even close to this kind of obstructionism when the most stupid president ever was in office before him. And in his case, we probably should have been obstructing some of his craziness.
