That’s seven months longer than the amount of time remaining to Obama’s presidency.

Chuckie Shumer the man who spoke so much.

To bad he didn’t hold to his phony beliefs when leftists Sotomayor and Kagan were nominated by Obama.

The political situation in 2007 was a mirror image of the current face-off created by Justice Antonin Scalia’s unexpected death.

Bush was in his second term in the White House, and the Democrats had retaken the Senate in the 2006 midterm elections.

The incumbent president had already made two Supreme Court appointments, John Roberts and Samuel Alito.

Schumer’s audience was the American Constitution Society (ACS), a left-wing legal organization. The society was founded in an effort to limit the impact that the Federalist Society was having on promoting conservative legal principles in American law schools, which are notoriously liberal.

 

Read it and weep, Democrats. The shoe is on the other foot.

Dragon 1 @ Socialismisnottheanswer, I discovered that in August 1960, the Democrat-controlled Senate passed a resolution, S.RES. 334, (Source Government Track. U.S)

“Expressing the sense of the Senate that the president should not make recess appointments to the Supreme Court, except to prevent or end a breakdown in the administration of the Court’s business.”

Each of President Eisenhower’s SCOTUS appointments had initially been a recess appointment who was later confirmed by the Senate, and the Democrats were apparently concerned that Ike would try to fill any last-minute vacancy that might arise with a recess appointment.

The GOP opposed this, of course. Hypocrisy goes two ways. But the majority won.

As it should this time.

Thanks Chuckie…. When you think about it has Schumer ever been on the right side of an issue?

He’s made his career primarily trying to destroy the Second Amendment.

    Well isn’t that the Democrat way? If things are not going your way change the rules. Forget about, history, tradition, culture, precedent, or the Constitution. It isn’t fair if they don’t win. Candy-ass cry babies!
