Does This Mean We Shouldn’t Be Vigilant?

(from Brock Townsend)

There Hasn’t Been Justice Nominated and Confirmed In Election Year By Divided Government Since 1880

Via Billy

Republican presidential contenders and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell argued for the Senate to run out the clock on President Barack Obama, depriving him the chance to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death today.

Far left President Barack Obama will want the Republican Senate to confirm an appointment this year but this hasn’t happened since 1880.

There hasn’t been a justice nominated and confirmed in an election year by divided government since 1880.
 
Josh Blackman reported:

Hopefully, this remains true.  Of course, we thought the Clinton Assault Weapon Ban and the Obama Affordable Care Act were non-starters, as well.

  1. Simply let the nominee hang in the Judiciary committee and twist in the wind. Let Prez Sparklefarts send his choice to the Senate and then let him rot.

    The dipsticks in charge of the GOP screwed up royally by holding a press conference saying that a SCOTUS nominee wouldn’t be considered. Why telegraph the strategy to your enemy? They damn well already knew it but would have been denied the opportunity to have their own press conferences calling for heads before the process even started.
    Dumb.
