"Little Chucky" Schumer, the dunce who is currently the US Senator from New York, says that he will stop all of President Bush's future picks for the US Supreme Court if there are any in the last 18 months of his term.
That's right - Schumer only wants Downercrats to name Supreme Court justices.
Schumer to fight new Bush high court picks
New York Sen. Charles E. Schumer, a powerful member of the Democratic leadership, said Friday the Senate should not confirm another U.S. Supreme Court nominee under President Bush “except in extraordinary circumstances.”
“We should reverse the presumption of confirmation,” Schumer told the American Constitution Society convention in Washington. “The Supreme Court is dangerously out of balance. We cannot afford to see Justice Stevens replaced by another Roberts, or Justice Ginsburg by another Alito.”
Liberals love to tell us how important the US Constitution is. But when one of their own says that we should merely change the US Constitution's mandate on how the US Senate should react to a Supreme Court nominee - hold hearings, have a vote - the liberals are silent.
So, here is what Joobo proposes: when a Downie becomes President and they nominate a Supreme Court justice, the Republicans should now hold that nominee to Schumer's standard. And let's hope one Republican has the backbone to say that they will put a block on that nominee for being so liberal. We do not need any more liberals on the US Supreme Court, thank you.
