I am enraged as should be every other person who cares about the United States of America.
In 2008, Congressional Republicans, took the position that they would bring down these United States rather than treat President Obama as if he were the real, actual, elected president of the country.
Republican leaders publicly declared they would rather see the United States default on a variety of issues rather than to work with the president on solving the problems faced by the country.
Now, we have a Supreme Court nominee waiting in the wings for the Republicans in Congress to do their sworn duty. They refuse to do so.
The following is from Shakesville:
"How unusual is the Republican blockade of the nomination of Judge Merrick B. Garland, President Obama's pick for the Supreme Court? After a comprehensive look at every past Supreme Court vacancy, two law professors have concluded that it is an unprecedented development. ...In every one of the 103 earlier Supreme Court vacancies, the professors wrote, the president was able to both nominate and appoint a replacement with the Senate's advice and consent."
Based upon the evidence before us, we can only conclude that these Republicans are, in fact, traitors. They have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution and defend the country. Their continued failure to do these things constitutes treason!
