It couldn’t have heartened my heart more when I read that he was dead. Cold hearted? Not in the least. That man skewed the Constitution all out of shape. He believed that only he, not the other 8 justices, could interpret correctly. I am of glad heart.
Now a real fight presents itself. President Obama now can submit to the Senate a nominee to replace Scalia. It will b a knock down fight to get the Presidents nominee seated by the Republican controlled Senate. There are even now reports that Senator McConnell and other Republicans in the Senate will tie up the nomination until a new President is elected. No matter how qualified the nominee, he will be opposed. This shows that McConnell is not a patriot, but a venal and pompous sentient animal. The good of the Union is always dead last in his consideration of how he should exercise his power as a Senator and the Senates’ majority leader. Unless President Obama nominates a real clunker, All Citizens of the United States of America MUST lobby the Other Republicans in the Senate to approve the Presidents nominee!!!!
Would someone, I don’t know how, place a template email on Facebook so that even we Luddites can send an email, over and over, to Senator McConnell and every Senator to back President Obama’s Nominee.
Just to make sure everyone understands me this post is presented in as level headed as I can be. If the Republicans do refuse to Advise & Consent, the Presidents nominee, then I will pump up to Screed level.
Please, all Citizens, do your Duty as Citizens and let all Senators know that We are watching. We expect them do their duty as Senators and not venal politicians.
