When it comes to giving in to the Democrats on allowing Obama to replace Alito, I say “F them!”
Why should we care about what Democrats think. We know Obama would appoint the most anti-America, radical Leftist he can find, and we are firmly AGAINST that.
They have never, repeat NEVER done us any favors, so what could we possibly gain? NOTHING.
As Front Page reports, the Democrats have held up our judicial appointments for years.
In previous posts, I discussed some of the outrageous Senate shenanigans by Democrats during the Bush years. Like blocking Judge Owens for 4 years. And holding one seat hostage for six years through three nominees.
Bush had nominated Judge Pickering in ’01 and he was blocked in committee, falsely smeared as a racist and then filibustered by Senate Democrats to deny him the “up and down vote” that they are now busy clamoring for. After three years, Pickering gave up and was replaced by Wallace, who was also blocked by Senate Democrats for a year and denied a vote. Six years later, Bush was still trying with Judge Southwick who had served in Iraq. He was also denied an “up and down” vote until the end of 2007.
After Judge Murnaghan, a liberal judge on the Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, died, Clinton’s attempt to fill the seat fell afoul of the Thurmond Rule, supported by both Democrats and Republicans, against judicial nominations in the last months of an election year. Murnaghan had died in August 2000. The election was a few months away. Under the Thurmond Rule, this would be Bush’s seat to fill.
So Democrats can suck the high hard one.
But let’s not rely on our logic and reasoning, or the historical facts, because McConnell has the backbone of an octopus, when it comes to representing us. We MUST make sure that he and all Republicans understand the importance of this.
Next step, making sure we elect a Conservative president who also understands that we can’t bring a knife to a gun fight. Our ONLY option is to go nuclear on the Left.
The new Conservative president must appoint ONLY true Conservatives over the next few years, as the justices die off or retire from the bench. This is not a game, but the sheer reality that our freedom hangs in the balance. This cannot be overstated.
