Republicans Vow To Block Conformation Of Scalia's Supreme Court Replacement President Obama Hasn't Named

Let's do a timeline here so we can fully appreciate the insincere partisan hackery of the Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates who are partaking in this idiocy.

First things first (or last as it may be) Supreme Court Justice Scalia dies on Saturday the 13 in the evening. Minutes after the news of Scalia's death hit the wires these right wing ghouls start blasting out tweets promising to deny President Obama's pick to replace him on the Supreme Court. One problem... President Obama hasn't even made peep one about the Chief Justice's passing away let alone who he thinks should replace him!

Let's check out the fools on parade...


Ted Cruz, the Texas Senator and candidate for the Republican nomination for President immediately tweeted...




Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell followed Cruz with this stament to the press...

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,

Conn Carroll, a key staffer for Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) also vowed to block any and all nominations




Fox News host Todd Starnes also vowed that the Republicans wouldn’t let any Obama nomination pass...




Craig Parshall, a constitutional attorney for the conservative American Center for Law and Justice, tweeted...




Sean Davis, co-founder of the online right wing magazine The Federalist, tweeted...




PatriotVote2016 had this to add to the party...




I've noticed in several interviews that when asked to justify these actions the talking point du jour for Republicans has been “This should be a decision for the people, Let the election decide it”. Here's a news flash guys: The people did decide it when they elected President Obama. Now back off and let the man do his job you pandering weasels.

Here's a fact to hit your crazy right wing uncle with when he starts ranting about this issue: The longest it has ever taken to confirm a Supreme Court nominee is 125 days. Obama has 361 days left in office.
