Democrats Already Blocked Obama’s Chance To Appoint Justice Scalia’s Replacement

Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia’s shocking death over the weekend had Democrats salivating at the possibility of Obama appointing a liberal justice in his last year in office to effectively tip the scales of the court towards left leaning decisions.

Another liberal Supreme Court justice would give them the majority opinion in the court and would have radical implications on the future of the country and the direction that we are headed.  Luckily for Republicans and constitutional conservatives, the Democrats put a stop to Obama’s chance to appoint another justice 56 years ago.

In the summer of 1960, the Senate (controlled by the Democrats) passed a resolution blocking any attempt by a president to fill a vacancy during his last year in office.  According to American Thinker, resolution S.RES.334 states that “Expressing the sense of the Senate that the president should not make recess appointments to the Supreme Court, except to prevent or end a breakdown in the administration of the Court’s business.”

At the time the resolution was passed, the Republicans fought hard against it.  Oh, the irony.
