Obstructionist Senator Insists POTUS Must Not Nominate Supreme Court Justice In An Election Year

Font Size:

The Party of No strikes again. Haven’t any of these America-hating hostage-takers ever heard of the U.S. Constitution?

“It would be our pragmatic conclusion that once the political season is underway, and it is, action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over. That is what is fair to the nominee, and is central to the process. Otherwise, it seems to me, Mr. President, we will be in deep trouble as an institution.”

We must stand against such seditious hate speech!

The United States Constitution is clear: The Senate must rubber-stamp anyone POTUS nominates to the Supreme Court. Unless, of course POTUS is a Republican. In that case, whatever happens is the Republicans’ fault, because those guys are jerks.

Come on, you guys. Compromise. Do whatever the Democrats want, whenever they want it.
