I think I’d vote for him were I a Senator. I’d at least consider it. (Actually, since I wrote that, I’ve decided I probably would not)
When I heard Obama yesterday morning in the Rose Garden say we’re “at a time when our politics are so polarized….we should play it straight,” I couldn’t believe my ears. I’m wondering if he ever heard this:
“It is about a principle, not a person,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor, reiterating his vow not to meet with Obama’s nominee in an election year.
I’m betting he had heard what McConnell had said after Scalia died, aren’t you? But Obama, ever the GREAT DIVIDER, decides to nominate a judge who most people could and might say should please both sides of the aisle. Very brilliant on Obama’s part because it makes Republicans look even worse for not voting up or down on Garland.
Of course, THIS had happened during Reagan, and that’s worth reading. Does it make McConnell look like a hypocrite? Of course, it was clearly when things hadn’t been destroyed by the hideous OBAMA CREATED DIVISION in the government that this happened: Democrats controlled the Senate and Anthony Kennedy was confirmed 97-0
Obama is at his typical GREAT DIVISION MAKING again; he was told “we won’t buy it, it’s not the person, it’s the principle,” yet Obama says “we are so polarized we should play it straight?” Am I missing something here?
Then there was this, which really interested me:
“He(Garland) put himself through Harvard Law School by working as a tutor, by stocking shoes in a shoe store, and — what is a painful moment for any young man — selling his comic book collection,” Obama said. “It’s tough. Been there.”
“Been where?” Obama? I have never heard a thing about who paid for Harvard (other than that wizened rich Arab whose video lasted about 3 days and which I happened to see, saying he’d paid for everything for Obama, but then the video disappeared. I might add that’s the only video I’ve seen disappear so we need to stop sending videos around that say “the left’s going to delete this video so watch it now!” Some are dated 4 years ago). But I digress.
THIS NOMINATION IS ANOTHER VERY SAD VERSION OF OBAMA’S DIVISIVENESS AND NONE ON THE LEFT HAS PICKED UP ON THAT, OF COURSE. CNN’S SPENDING THE DAY RUNNING THE TAPE OF REPUBLICAN SENATOR ORIN HATCH RAVING ABOUT GARLAND A FEW YEARS BACK…..In other words “See? A Republican liked him then, they’re only turning now because they won’t be agreeable! They’re the “party of NO!”..(BS)
