Supreme Court Justice Scalia dead at 79
Think what Obama accomplished with Executive Orders, then think of what he could do with the Supreme Court in his pocket.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the judicial standard-bearer of the conservative movement and the court’s most provocative member, died Saturday. He was 79.
His death means President Obama could have an unprecedented chance to try to shift the balance of the court during his final year in office — setting up a Senate battle in the heat of an election year.
Obama said he planned “to fulfill my constitutional responsibility to nominate a successor in due time.”
The U.S. Marshals Service in Washington confirmed Scalia’s death at a private residence in the Big Bend area of south Texas.
The more defining question is “what will happen next.” We now will see what the Senate does. Do they have a backbone or are they a an Obama Rubber Stamp. This fight is going down to the finish. There is no way in hell that the Republicans should take up a vote to fill Scalia’s spot on the court. We are talking war here. Just check the Venezuelan situation by clicking here. Then America will understand the consequences of a Senate vote.
