On replacing Scalia, Republicans advise the President of their dissent

The GOP warns that they all  will obstruct him.

And whomever he names to the court deconstruct him.

Of the same it is more;

We have seen this before.

Since Obama’s been Prez they have totally  f…ked him.

“He [the president]  shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.”  [Article II of the Constitution]

  • well done

  • The Republican debates have gone down to pure idiocy. Mr. Orange Face said "Mitch McConnell should delay, delay, delay." I thought McConnell was part of your one of your commenter's "Republican establishment."

    I guess they prefer that Obama abdicate his constitutional duty and let the Bern pick the justice.

    Was Mr. Orange Face going to choose that scholar of constitutional law, Ammon Bundy?

  • Orange Face? Sounds like a villain in Dick Tracy's universe.

    If only the Bern could.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    1. If the face fits...
    2. What I proposed was a logical conclusion from the fallacious premise the Simpleton Seven mouthed.

    My last point also gets down to the usual that that crowd said what it was against, but not whom they would appoint. If the Senate sits on it for a year (despite tradition to the contrary) and despite all odds, one on that dais is elected, does Caribou Barbie get the nod because of her endorsement, now forgotten? Mr.O.F. certainly hasn't indicated what his view of judicial philosophy is, other than "I'll sue." At least Scalia had a coherent judicial philosophy, however one might disagree with the result. I also wonder what Justice Thomas will now do, as he no longer has anyone with his back.

  • In reply to jack:

    It appears Aquinas wants a delay also.

    How does Mr. O.F. stating what he believed McConnell should do absolve him of being anti-establishment? No one is saying they want a new king.

    Also, the debate was on CBS and Mr. O.F. gave two possible replacements, why did you not acknowledge the Republican front runner did give an idea of an appointment?

  • In reply to 4zen:

    1. I certainly don't see that from his main post. Maybe you get it from his reply, but I put that in context--that the 7 blowhards want Bern to appoint.

    2. If McConnell isn't the establishment (especially with all the rabble criticizing him for compromising on immigration and the budget), who is? That is unless "the Republican establishment" are just empty words that OF throws around at will as an opportunist.

  • This all strikes me as like the teachers who didn't want to do anything on the last day of school. Then it was too close to the last day... the last week... where does it end? Sigh!
