Are Cracks Beginning To Appear In The GOP Opposition To The SC Nomination


Courtesy of Politico:

Nevada GOP Sen. Dean Heller is breaking sharply with his party’s strategy on a Supreme Court nominee, calling on President Barack Obama to put forward a consensus candidate to replace Antonin Scalia while insisting that Nevadans should have a voice in the process.

The statement from the purple state senator is the most direct rebuttal to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s plans to completely block a Supreme Court nominee. Though Heller admits that a nominee is unlikely to be confirmed this year, he encouraged Obama on Wednesday to avoid nominating a highly ideological judicial appointee.

I hope Mitch McConnell’s plans come to a screeching halt. He has a few senators who are up for reelection in blue and purple states. I’m sure they like their cushy numbers and salaries, and don’t want to forsake that.

I love how all of these dipshits give advice to President Obama on his selection for the nomination. Yeah, like Scalia wasn’t a “highly ideological judicial appointee.” The crazy loons just don’t get that this time they don’t get to make the choice.

I have to think that there are some sane Republicans who have come to the realization that democracy is being thwarted.


Cuz I am into birds these days.   🙂

    Check out Bette Midler’s twitter. MY FAVE Trump called Ted Cruz a “pussy”? Well, Donald Trump is a dick so maybe they should get together and fuck off. Sorry for the language Irish’s Mom.

    I heard on the news this morning that at least one Republican Senator is already starting to back track a bit. They fecking know better.
    Tried to google it to post a link, but evidently it isn’t out on the internet yet.

    If the republicans want to push that shit; there will be some serious blow back.

      I saw a few names mentioned on Daily Kos this morning. Can’t find the link now, but some of these assholes are walking it back.

      Susan Collins was one. And I don’t think she is an asshole. I genuinely thing she is ok ish. She should do the Olympia Snow thing and get the hell out.

        Yes, there are still some decent people in government on both sides. I can only cross my fingers and hope for the best from the outside.
        Then keep my fingers crossed and fart from the inside.
        Hey. It is what I do when I get nervous.

    My new favorite comedy show ‘Full Frontal’ has a lot to say about this:

    Sam Bee is REALLY good!

    It’s time for President Obama to bust out some constitutional lawyers and find out if what these obstructionists are doing is in fact treason.

    Former Supreme Sandra Day O’Connor just sided with President Obama. I STILL do not forgive her for placing W into the WH. The repubs. are going more nuts than usual because President Obama will not be attending Scalia’s funeral. Scalia was always absent for the State of the Union address President Obama gave each year, why honor that racist sob? Dikless Cheney was a good hunting bddy, so he will be there. Scalia flew on Air Force Two with Dickless, on hunting trips.
