Why ‘NO’ Is The Only Answer!

The GOP has been unfairly labeled the Party of No by their Democrat opponents and this cry is ever joyfully repeated by the drive-by media at every opportunity. This label was started back when the Democrats controlled the White House, Senate, and House. No Republican idea was ever allowed on to the floors of Congress. As the Republican ideas were suppressed all they could do was oppose the liberal agenda. In opposing any Obama nominee for SCOTUS, the Republicans are not plowing new ground. This fine opinion article by Tony Katz covers the Democrat Party Of No when they opposed nominees. Read more below.


As Written By Tony Katz, The Daily Caller:

‘No’ Is Why America Elected Republicans

The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia at 79 has been a gut punch for those who follow the Constitution, and a reason for glee from those who celebrate the death of anyone who disagrees with them. Also, allegedly, it has created constitutional crisis of monumental proportions as Democrats demand the GOP-controlled Senate confirm whomever President Obama decides to nominate to fill the position.But there is no crisis. There is only one word. No.

No, we will not consider any of Obama’s nominees. No, we won’t vote them. No, we don’t care what you say about us on MSNBC. No, we don’t care if you claim this is for political reasons and political purposes. No, we don’t care if you campaign on it.

Why am I so confident in how clearly and effortlessly the GOP should say “No?” Because the Democrats have already done it.
The Internet is amazing. If you search hard enough, more often then not you’ll find what you’re looking for. Digging through the volumes of history compiled over the lifetime of man, one had to go back to ancient times to find proof of an appointment held up by a political party for political reasons and political purposes.

The ancient times of 2003.

Meet Miguel Estrada. A very talented legal mind who had been nominated by President George W. Bush in May of 2001 to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia.
