GOP ALREADY Backing Down on Blocking Obama SCOTUS Nomination?

Good grief, the Justice of the Supreme Court has not even been deceased a week and the GOP that claimed they would block an Obama nomination is already showing signs of weakening. What in the world is wrong with these people? There is no one on Obama’s short list that is even remotely close to Justice Antonin Scalia. How can they possibly even think about allowing Obama to appoint another leftest liberal Supreme Court Justice? This is not something that can be played around with. Once it’s done, that’s it! C’mon ladies and gents in the Senate, put on your big boy and girl drawers and do this! Block his nomination no matter what!

Here is why they are saying they have to be careful in blocking Obama’s potential nomination.

By Dave Boyer and Stephen Dinan | The Washington Times

Cracks were emerging Tuesday in congressional Republicans’ position of blocking automatically any candidate nominated by President Obama to fill the Supreme Court seat of the late Antonin Scalia.

Sen. Thom Tillis, North Carolina Republican, voiced caution Tuesday about the GOP blocking any Obama nominee without a hearing.

    Come on you stupid clowns… Not only should you see to it that he does not get another leftist appointment to the court but you need to be calling for an in depth investigation of the death of Justice Scalia especially given the obvious irregularities that have been shown already. Most of you Lilly livered pussies don’t deserved to be where you are because you failed to
    Live up to your promises to your constituents. Now grow a pair and do your duties or get the hell out and make room for someone who is not afraid to go before the world and show them you can still do the job you were hired to do

    Where did these stupid repubs. come from, send them hone for good

  • Surly Curmudgen

    The progressives in Republican clothing are going to stab us in the back again.

  • Ed Wade

    Anyone that believes Justice Scalia died of natural causes is either a fool or just not paying attention. Of course McConnell will cave again, just like he did on Obamacare and Benghazi. That’s what he does. That’s what they all do. What’s the penalty for treason again? Do we even have enough rope?

    • bluebonnet

      at least rope can be used over and over and over

    they are all TRAITORS!!

    Nutless RINO Surrender Monkeys.

    all you dumb people that continue to send rinos to Washington dc should wake up,,,that includes john cornyn of TEXAS,,,he should never win and I did not vote for him because there are and was great replacements, but the older people vote name recognition……..TED CRUZ 2016,,,he is our TEXAS senator and next President.

  • Jeff Benton

    I hate to break this too you all, but look at who they have already confirmed for Obama, some of whom are those who now sit on that once respected bench… It isn’t rocket science…

    Of course the Republicans are going to confirm whoever Obama nominates…

    The Repubs have already done so a few times when they held the power to stop Obama cold…
    Give it up already…
    You were all sold out by pathological liars and thieves that call themselves statesmen…

    The Supreme Court of the United States of America hasn’t been a legally binding institution since the moment John Roberts reinstated slavery with a mandate for every single person in America to be forced to buy a product that only exists in peoples minds LOL…
    Anyone who demands that everyone follow the laws they illegally legislate from that bench is dumber than a box of rocks…
    Heh heh heh…

    This should come as no surprise to anyone. I have already said that by this time next month, the RINOs will cave and we may have a new liberal judge on the court. The Supreme Court already has a liberal majority. We have Roberts, Kagan, Sotomayor, Kennedy and Ginsberg AKA the Obama Five. Forget about a delay until January 2017. He isn’t about to pass up the chance to stack the Court even more. Don’t know who it will be yet but you can be sure of one thing. His pick will be anti Christian, anti Semite, anti Second Amendment, anti First Amendment, anti family values, pro abortion, pro gay, pro Islam, pro Socialism and anti American. Did I leave anything out?

      Well said!

  • Neocon

    The republiCANTS should vote for whomever Obama nominates just like the Dems voted for Anthony Kenny during RINO Reagan’s last year in office.

  • FSHNT21

    And the silly Grassroots conservatives have spent the last 7 years trying to revive a dead Party instead of starting a NEW Party that truly represents “We the People”…
    Now the Republicans are showing their true colors, preparing to roll over once again to protect their precious re-election chances instead of shutting this fraud down…

  • MajorMajor411

    Contact your Senators and remind them of SR 334.

    Tell them to invoke this standing law to keep Obama from appointing another Marxist to the Supreme Court. Remind them that in 1960 the Democrat controlled Senate created a resolution that stops any President from appointing a Justice to the Supreme Court in an election year. We need everyone to make the Republican Senators remember to enforce what the Democrats pushed through back in 1960. Should have TERM LIMITS for ALL Senators, Congress and Supreme Court Justices.

  • Patrick Thomas

    There’s too many RINOs in the Senate to risk letting Obama appoint someone and then voting them out. John McCain comes to mind. He would probably vote for anyone Obama nominates.

  • citizen paul

    One of the speculated nominees, Judge Watford of the 9th Circuit, had a major role in California’s acceptance of gay marriage. The conservative media has to do the research and opposition that Sen. McConnell will avoid doing. All of them are card carrying progressives and fellow travelers. The Senate needs to payback the Dems for all of Bush’s rejected nominees.

    Looks like all is going according to “The Plan”!……………………….’nuff said?!
