Senate Republicans’ widespread vow to automatically block any Supreme Court nominee President Obama puts forth may be wavering.
Within minutes of Justice Antonin Scalia passing away on Saturday, Republicans declared that they would automatically block any replacement Obama would appoint during the 11 months he has left in office. Soon after, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced his intention to block any replacement until a new president takes office in 2017.
But a conservative senator from North Carolina is breaking with his colleagues and calling for the GOP to at least give consideration to a potential replacement.
Appearing on The Tyler Cralle Show on Tuesday morning, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) cautioned against vowing to automatically block any nominee.
“I think we fall into the trap if just simply say sight unseen, we fall into the trap of being obstructionists,” Tillis said.
THIS GUY was sent to DC with explicit marching orders to obstruct the hell out of Barry Soetero Hussein Obama. The GOP was given the Senate majority with the explicit mission to obstruct the hell out of Barry Soetero Hussein Obama. Allowing Barry to put one of his far-left law school professor pals on the high court to round out a 5-4 liberal majority bent on cannibalizing what’s left of The Constitution is unacceptable.
This guy is not one to go rogue. He got someone’s blessing from on-high. Folks, if we don’t stay on top of these people, the screwing — by our own alleged teammates and representatives — will be complete.
