• Schumer Returns Fire! Unleashes Hypocrital Outrage At GOP Pledge To Block Obama SCOTUS Nominees

    As the details surrounding Justice Scalia’s death get murkier, the political battle for the high court is in full swing. GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowing to block all Obama nominees lit the fuse.

    Now Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer has blasted back calling for the GOP to stand down on “obstructionism”. Too bad there is video showing Schumer doing the exact same thing to President Bush. Hypocrisy much?

    From The Daily Caller:

    During a Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer decried the intent of many Senate Republicans to prevent President Barack Obama from appointing the successor to deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

    But less than a decade ago, Schumer advocated doing the same exact thing if any additional Supreme Court vacancies opened under former President George W. Bush.

    Schumer continued on his high horse.

    “We should reverse the presumption of confirmation,” Schumer said, according to Politico. “The Supreme Court is dangerously out of balance. We cannot afford to see Justice Stevens replaced by another Roberts, or Justice Ginsburg by another Alito.” During the same speech, Schumer lamented that he hadn’t managed to block Bush’s prior Supreme Court nominations.

    Notably, when he made his remarks in 2007, Bush had about seven more months remaining in his presidential term than Obama has remaining in his.

    Much like Republicans today, Schumer’s sentiment was clearly based on a fear that another Bush appointment would radically shift the overall makeup of the Court’s ideology. Read more…

    The battle for control of the high court is just getting started, but has instantly become the most important issue for this election.
