What sort of mind votes for an Obama?

Yes, of course it stinks, yes of course it was entirely predictable:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R, Iowa) said that “it’s been standard practice over the last 80 years to not confirm Supreme Court nominees during a presidential election year.”

“Given the huge divide in the country, and the fact that this president, above all others, has made no bones about his goal to use the courts to circumvent Congress and push through his own agenda, it only makes sense that we defer to the American people who will elect a new president to select the next Supreme Court Justice,” Grassley said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R, Ky.) agreed, saying “the American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new President.” McConnell did not promise to block Obama’s nominees, however.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D, Nev.) disagreed. “With so many important issues pending before the Supreme Court, the Senate has a responsibility to fill vacancies as soon as possible,” Reid said in a statement. “It would be unprecedented in recent history for the Supreme Court to go a year with a vacant seat. Failing to fill this vacancy would be a shameful abdication of one of the Senate’s most essential Constitutional responsibilities.”

Question I have is – if Obama pushes this through [a Democrat in place of a Republican] and if a Republican [Trump?] gets in, can he rescind Obama’s appointment?

    James, I’m assuming that you are aware a lot of people are questioning the circumstances surrounding the death of Antonin Scalia? Whatever, it’s very fortuitous for the muslim in the White House.
    In addition, the American collectivists are behaving in the same way ours did when Margaret Thatcher died. And they’re now praying ( which in itself shows how evil they are) for the death of another conservative Supreme Court judge.

      Haven’t looked at it yet in detail. Shall look for those reports. Uh-huh:

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2016/02/15/conspiracy-theories-swirl-around-the-death-of-antonin-scalia/

      Seems a bit like John Smith’s death, paving the way for Blair and Brown who’d been earmarked by the Bilderbergers. Problem is evidence.

      Trouble is for me, I’ve had a steady dose of X Files and Man in the High Castle of late, so liable to start believing.

      Later – that lack of an autopsy report is a worry though, innit?

    Firstly, I couldn’t begin to comprehend a reason to vote for the likes of that liar and charlatan Obama, if ever the American public were conned and here I am thinking of America’s very large ethnic vote, Obama, the Democrats: did a number on you.

    The most unfortunate passing of Justice Antonin Scalia has brought about an existential crisis which reaches to the heart and influence of governance of the USA and by extension to everyone (in the ‘free world’) who cherishes freedom, hope and democracy and sovereign, independent nations.

    Obama, has long dreamt of creating that Nirvana, where a majority of supreme ranking Justices sitting on SCOTUS, would be of a liberal persuasion.

    I cannot help but note the dark irony in all of this, for just as he (the Kenyan chief Emir) is having to sign off. Too late maybe? For, the prospect of inserting another Cultural Marxist, Ivy league trained Socialist (headbanger) Frankfurt School alumnus into the highest court in the land – was made manifest – so near and yet so far. You’d have to have a heart of stone not to cackle just for a minute or three.
    That said, Obama can still cause the country much misery and endless malfeasance if he is allowed to install such as, a Left wing, Marxist social engineer onto the bench of SCOTUS. What a black day that would be for free and independent America, indeed for all of us over here, shackled as we all are to the oars of Brussels Empire slaver.
    Further, the UN-EU axis and the shady bastards billionaires club who stand behind them would be dancing in their marbled halls, across the world – singing, “One world government here we go!”

    As a Brit, I understand not much of the mechanisms of filling a vacant supreme court seat but I comprehend very well, the wider implications if this supreme court seat is bestowed to the wrong person and musing on the potential deleterious consequences, Obama being the left wing goblin he is, will make sure of it.

    Goldman Sachs will mightily approve and on Wall street, the bell rings gleefully at the demise of the last true bastion of western democracy! Next, Obama job as, the Goldman Sachs new roving ambassador, glad handler, net worker and operator, a $billionaire in the shake of a rats tail.

    Wheels within wheels, ’twas ever thus.

      First of all you have to get his name right, Bari Shabazz, Barack Hussein Obama, but Barry Soetoro is the lawful name never legally changed from his childhood in Indonesia. It may be that the next President may reveal his true persona and religion, all of the documents he has used for his identity may lead him and his co-conspirators to prison.

        Poor old Hillary!

        I laughed but she never stood a chance against “hope and change” bloke, TPTB wanted the nebulous Marxist twat, shape shifter, instead of the same old Cultural Marxist mouthpiece – of her husband. By big bucks not by God, they had him duly installed.

        It just goes to show, that, in America, shady billionaires money (Soros) buys bad shit, lets us see how that pans out, this time around…………..

    It is interesting to note that Chuck Grassley is wrong. One only has to look at the example of Kennedy, who was nominated in Reagan’s last year.
