Senate Republicans Are Resolute: Let the People Speak
Senate Republicans have announced that they will exercise their constitutional advice and consent authority and refuse to consent to any Obama nominee. The American people deserve to have their voice heard in the process. We applaud Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) for promising not to hold a hearing on any nominee.
President Obama wants to deny the American people that choice. And no wonder. He has already made two extreme liberal appointments to the Court and if given a third he will have succeeded in decisively changing the current balance of the Court. A liberal majority will rule for decades.
