What’s Good for the Supreme Court Goose…


The controversy over replacement Supreme Court justice Scalia is another episode in Democrat hypocrisy.  If Democrats didn’t have double standards they wouldn’t have any standards at all.

Democrats and their friends in the media are screaming from the rooftops that the Republican Senate has no right to block Barack Obama from appointing the Marxist of his liking to replace Justice Scalia.  Which brings us to Chuck Schumer serving as our hypocrisy poster boy today.

That was then, this is now. Here’s Chuck Schumer shortly after Scalia’s death.

“You know, the kind of obstructionism that [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell ‘s talking about, he’s hearkening back to his old days,” Schumer said, according to The Hill. “In 2010, right after the election or right during the election, he said, ‘My number-one job is to defeat Barack Obama,’ without even knowing what Barack Obama was going to propose. Here, he doesn’t even know who the president’s going to propose and he said, ‘No, we’re not having hearings; we’re not going to go forward to leave the Supreme Court vacant at 300 days in a divided time.’”

There is one distinct difference between 2007 and today.  Democrats in 2007 had no qualms about holding the line on the nomination of a Supreme Court justice by George W. Bush. Today, the Republican Senate will likely be looking for a way to accommodate Barack Obama.
