The GOPís Supreme Court strategy is dicey. But its potential payoff is massive.


Looking objectively at the impending Supreme Court confirmation battle between President Obama and Senate Republicans, it seems like at every turn, Republicans are put on the defensive. Almost all of the scenarios we envision playing out make life harder for Senate Republicans than for the president.

No matter whom Obama picks, anti-Obama sentiment on the right is so strong that Senate Republicans have no choice but to vote down ó or not even consider ó the nominee.

This gives Obama a few paths to go down that could make Republicans squirm. He could choose a groundbreaking liberal nominee who might rally the Democratic base to go to the polls in November, betting a Democratic president and Senate ..............

sense I stopped using Yahoo they now seem to have all the news links on one site. if true.

This bit of news is about 5 to 7 stories down from the top of Yahoo.

That Yahoo thingy made me forget what else I wanted to say. I want them to hold the POTUS pick up and wait till after the elections.

Because Obama would make his pick worst than Ginsberg is a Liberal and that would screw up the court big time.

it is the president's constitutional duty to appoint when there is a vacancy in the court.
that doesnt mean the senate cant do whatever it wants...drag its feet, vote up or down
but they are afraid that will look to political so they wud rather bamboozle obama (sounds like a country song ) into delaying. but a freakin year is too long.

The Senate hasn't let a lame duck President of either party select the candidate for SCOTUS in over 80 years... Either party.

I see NO reason to do it now. Besides, Obama has had 2 selections already, and judging by those we don't want another Latino or woman more on the court.

We'll get by until the ne+t President is seated, no matter who or what party is elected. We've been down this path before, several times.

It is not up to the Senate to allow the POTUS to nominate a supreme court judge.

their has not been one die in office in a lame duck session is where you are getting the 80 years meme from.
read the freaking constitution if you dont believe me. but the 80 year thing is not a precedent set by presidents refusing to do it; it a precedent of none of them had died in a lame duck /election year while in office.

Kirk. the fact is 14 Presidents in their lame duck have done just that, elected to the S.C. a judge. In fact because Justice Scalia had died and a replacement is called for, it was R. Reagan who put him in his S.C. chair...

I to don't like this idea of another Liberal in this top court. Every Liberal with have an organism if it is done. But as great as he was with Constitutional law and as sorry as Obama is at it, to not allow the POTUS a qualified menber of society to be his choice is Un-Consititional.

So yes it is and means further downward spiral of American law. Because the Liberals see this document as a living piece of paper, which of course it is not.
The intent of each line of the text should not be up to a mind 136 + years later.

The 14 lame duck confirmations have been when the Senate and the President have been of the same party. As Obama filled with self importance, crowed after he shut down the Federal government, if Republicans want their way they first have to win elections. Well they did exactly that, taking a Senate majority in the 2014 midterms. Of course what Obama meant was "I won" so bow down before me.

There is nothing in the Constitution specifying the number of SCOTUS justices or setting a.schedule for Senate confirmation. FDR wanted to pack the court with justices sympathetic to his fascist new deal. The court doesnít stop when there is a vacancy on the bench. So all the howling about how the Senate has to move on Obama's nominee is just partisan bickering by Democrats.
