Elizabeth Warren has no shame in her game when she completely obliterates senate majority leader Mitch McConnell for his completely ridiculous claims. Mitch McConnell along with most of the Republican party has made claims that they will block anyone Obama appoints for the supreme court without even considering it. The senate ran GOP wants someone in the supreme court that is on the far right like Antonin Scalia and completely opposite of anyone President Obama would appoint.
Being that America voted for Obama for two terms goes to show that Obama is the voice of the people and America trusts him to portray what they want. McConnell advises senators in his party to completely drop their Senate duties, what they were appointed for by the people, and throw a fit that a Democrat is in office rather than a Republican. The GOP seems to not have any bright individuals that aim towards making America a great place to live. Senator McConnell, one of the dullest tools in the tool box, wants his party to block anyone Obama appoints and wait until the next president takes office next January so that “voters can have a say in a selection”
‘Senator McConnell is right that the American people should have a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court justice. In fact, they did – when President Obama won the 2012 election by five million votes.’
To which she then points out that:
‘Article II Section 2 of the Constitution says the President of the United States nominates justices to the Supreme Court, with the advice and consent of the Senate.’
and ends her slaying with:
‘I can’t find a clause that says ‘…except when there’s a year left in the term of a Democratic President.”
Warren makes very valid points. considering Obama has won both elections by a landslide shows how much faith and support he has from the American people. The GOP ran Senate needs to get the sticks out of their a**es and fulfill their Senate duties and responsibilities. This is the real world, you don’t get paid for throwing fits.
