Obama is reportedly considering nominating a Republican to the Supreme Court vacancy as a way around the Senate's vow to block ANY nomination.

I say fuck that.

Obama has wasted his whole administration trying to be a consolidator (conciliator)?  He needs to start playing hardball.

Nominate a pure ideological lefty (Angela Davis!) and let the Senate block her nomination.  Use this obstruction to file impeachment hearings against the Senators who block her.  Play it up in the media so these turdballs lose their seats in the next election.  Put some fire under the opposition.

Quit being such a pussy.

Even though the Democrats did the same thing in 2007. It was wrong then, it's wrong now.

Schumer talked about it. They didn't actually do it.

I guess we could hope that Sandoval would be an anomaly, like Republican governor Earl Warren.

Oh, he might be a great jurist. I'm not arguing that.

I'm saying Obama needs to grow a pair in his final year.

Good point. Irrelevant but good.
