Note to GOP: Grow Up

By on February 13, 2016 in See It Here

Within hours of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia being found dead in a Texas hunting lodge Saturday evening,  Republicans started tweeting that President Obama shouldn’t announce a replacement  until the next president takes office in January, 2017. Folks, that means the Court operates with eight members for 11 months under this looney-tune idea. Have you heard of 4-4 decisions? Yes they are rare but this is what Republicans are seeking.

Keep in mind: these are the folks telling us every nanosecond about government not working.  This is a moment for both the White House and Republicans to show it can be done—even if it happens under Obama’s term. Have a sit down without the “litmus test” nobody says they like and go through names from the White House—BTW–it’s the president’s job to make nominations. Then the President can let the GOP take the credit for “showing government can work.”
