    How would that be any worse than letting Barry do it? :scratch:




    Which I suppose then begs the question, what's the point of this thread?

    The Senate will still have a non-fuckhead majority so he wouldn't get confirmed either. :secret:

    Fuck conservatives and their hate of executive orders. An awful lot of red on this chart. How does Obama compare to Republicans?

    The judges rule the opposite of what they are anyway. "Conservative" John Roberts was the deciding vote for Obamacare's legality, as a tax. We're way too divided in this country now.

    This June is a big deal for the unions though. I get shit in the mail all the time about it.

    A supreme Court decision about "right to work" is due. This is a big deal for unions, and if the Supreme Court decides for the teachers in California who brought the case about.. It will kill the funding for public sector unions...... Possibly all unions public and private.

    Obama knows this is too important to his democratic union base.

    Elizabeth Warren Demolishes Arguments Against Filling Scalia’s Supreme Court Seat

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) eviscerated the main conservative argument against filling Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court seat during President Barack Obama’s last year in office.

    Warren, an acclaimed legal scholar, explained in a viral Facebook post that since the American people re-elected Obama in 2012, his power to nominate a replacement has already been approved by the voters.

    Warren referred to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) claim that it would be undemocratic to seat an Obama nominee in the president’s last year. McConnell "is right that the American people should have a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court justice,” Warren wrote. “In fact, they did -- when President Obama won the 2012 election by five million votes.”

    The clause in the constitution empowering the president to name Supreme Court justices -- Article II, Section 2 -- does not include an exception for when the president only has one year left in office, Warren noted.

    It's a tough place for the Republicans to be, and I cannot blame them in the least for playing a political game. The U.S. Supreme Court is as much politics as law; and this is a REALLY important seat. By the same token, if they simply refuse to play ball, it really does become shoot the moon where a loss for either side becomes huge. They could very well end up with someone WAY to the left of Scalia. If they stay in the game, on the other hand, they can direct the administration toward a moderate like Sri Srinivasan, who clerked for O'Connor, worked in the Bush administration and has worked on the corporate side of the aisle prior to his judgeship.

    The American people voted for Obama, that's certainly true. Their vote also resulted in Rs controlling both houses. So essentially what they wanted is gridlock and that's what they are going to get. So now they will force Obama to possibly counter with a recess appointment or roll the dice on the November elections. Fascinating stuff for sure.
