|Republicans threaten government shutdown over Obama's pick to replace Antonin Scalia.|
The right is scrambling for an offense. The sudden death of Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia has become a political football. The conservative justice died in Texas yesterday leaving the Supreme Court in limbo. Republicans are demanding the president hold back. They don't want him to nominate a justice. They rather have a new president take control of the situation.
President Barack Obama said that he will nominate a person to fill the position. Republicans are signaling a fight in the Senate.
Once again the Republicans threaten to shut down the government because they fear the wrath of elites and conservative agitators in the junk food media.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) are threatening filibuster if Obama nominate anyone to the Supreme Court.
Check it, the Republican Party got to booing John Dickerson when he corrected Cruz at the debate.
Cruz boldly said that Ronald Reagan appointed his third justice, Anthony Kennedy in 1987. It was true that he appointed the nominee, but the fact it was 1988 when he was confirmed. It was confirmed during an election year. Cruz was dishonest in that point.
|President Barack Obama is going forth to pick a nominee. And he dares Republicans to stop him.|
This is a lose/lose for the Republicans. The Supreme Court decisions that conservatives favor could be in jeopardy of being struck down.
The president may nominate a moderate.
The Republicans can stall a nominee but it will backfire. The Democrats will sabotage the Republican if he makes it to the White House.
This game is getting old.
Republicans are proving themselves to be quite inept.
If Donald Trump or Ted Cruz should become the Republican nominee, the party could face a bitter defeat. I know that the moderates and non-partisan Republicans are going to sour on the two bombastic candidates.
