We’ve already heard from Senator Chuck Schumer (D, NY) about how there should be no end-of-term nominations to fill Supreme Court vacancies, unless it’s a Democrat President making the nomination.
Then, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D, MA) claimed with her usual polemics that not proceeding with a nomination and confirmation process
would threaten both the Constitution and our democracy itself.
It is, after all, a Democrat President whose nomination needs the confirmation, else the Republic will fall.
The Democratic Party’s Progressive Presidential candidate and Socialist Presidential candidate both have demanded that the present Democrat President, in his last year, should nominate and have favorably considered a Supreme Court Justice.
Now we get Vice President Joe Biden (D), when he was the Democratic Party Senator from Delaware and the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, saying in all seriousness (during the last year of a Republican President’s term)
should seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings on the nomination until after the political campaign season is over.
now insisting that a Democrat President should make his nomination in the current political season and
the current Senate has a constitutional duty to [consider Obama’s choices].
