Just a tad misleading, this column. The author says “his two previous nominations of Robert Bork and Douglas Ginsburg collapsed”, speaking of President Reagan’s supreme court nominees. The author failed to mention that the Democrat Senate blocked (filibustered) those nominations. Assuming the author is correct in stating “Nevermind that the American people had elected President Obama with a clear majority in 2012 for just this purpose,” it is puzzling why Charlie fails to mention that in the LAST election, the one in 2014, the American people overwhelmingly REJECTED President Obama, who stated “Now, I am not on the ballot this fall — Michelle is pretty happy about that, But make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot — every single one of them.” Also, the author fails to mention that Sen. Chuck Schumer stated in 2007 that the Senate ought to block all President Bush’s Sumpre court appointments. Nor did the “esteemed” author mention that then Senator Obama voted to reject the nomination of the clearly qualified Samuel Alito based on his belief that we was not liberal enough. One has to wonder why the author would leave out these clearly relevant facts, unless he has an agenda he’s trying to push.
