Replacing Justice Scalia
Sen. McConnell vows that the choice of a successor to Justice Scalia, given the historic and long-reaching nature of the choice, should be that of the new president, whoever he or she may be. This is brave and defiant talk, unfortunately brave Republican talk often dissolves under pressure. Sen. McConnell must buck up the courage of his troops when they hear the sound of the guns. Everything is riding on it. Everything!
Given the huge racial and cultural divide in the country, and the fact that this president, above all others has made no bones about his EFF YOU AMERICA and use the courts to circumvent the people's elected Congress and push through his own agenda, it only makes sense that we defer to the American people who will elect a new president to select the next Supreme Court Justice.
