Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KK) responded to the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
He is demanding the choice be up to the NEXT Presient… instead of President Barack Obama:
“Justice Scalia’s fidelity to the Constitution was rivaled only by the love of his family: his wife Maureen his nine children, and his many grandchildren. Through the sheer force of his intellect and his legendary wit, this giant of American jurisprudence almost singlehandedly revived an approach to constitutional interpretation that prioritized the text and original meaning of the Constitution. Elaine and I send our deepest condolences to the entire Scalia family.”
“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new President.”
In other words, they will stop ANY appointment by Obama to the Supreme Court.
This is going to be the largest political fight in many years, and the Senate Republicans just declared war on the Obama White House!
