Isn’t it amazing how Democrats are rarely, if ever, confronted with their hypocrisy and how it is that our limp-wristed, politically-biased, state-controlled media continually allow them to get away with past statements. And what I’m making particular reference to here are statements that have been made about the appointing of Supreme Court justices and how it "doesn't matter" what Democrats may have said on this particular subject in the past.
Such is the case with, none other than, Chuckie Schumer and ‘Slow Joe’ Biden. Schumer's recent remarks refer to the Republican-controlled senate's assertion that it will not, at least for now, consider Barry's pick to replace Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court but will, instead, wait until the next president is elected. Several Democrats have already complained, even ‘demanded’, that the Republicans give Barry's choice a hearing in their "advise and consent" role.
However past statements from both ‘Slow Joe’ Biden and Chuckie Schumer would seem to conflict with what we’re now hear coming from Democrats. Statements that make it clear that these two hacks had no problem whatsoever with blocking Supreme Court nominees when the power structure was in their favor and the president making an appointment was a Republican. But now because the shoe is now on the other foot, the whining about the injustice of it all is in full swing.
As I am quite sure you most likely have all heard by now, unless you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, how it was that back in 2007, how Chuckie was heard to say, “We should reverse the presumption of confirmation.” And he would go on to say, “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.” But it’s ok to have Justice Scalia replaced by another Kagan?
And then we heard in 1992 how ‘Slow Joe’ Biden, then a Delaware senator and Chairman of the Judiciary Committee was heard to say, "It would be our pragmatic conclusion that once the political season is underway — and it is — action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over.” And ‘Slow Joe’ would go on to say, “That is what is fair to the nominee and essential to the process.” So I guess what was fair then, isn’t fair today?
And it’s only after fast forwarding to 2016 that we now hear Schumer singing what is a different tune saying, “Look, the simple answer to this, which everyone is saying everywhere is, ‘Do your job.’ It doesn’t matter what anybody said in the past. Do your job. It’s working,” Schumer said. “We should do our job.” So what’s he saying, that the Senate needs to do its job today, but back in 2007 it didn’t? I’m sorry, but I’m so confused, but then I’m not an empty-headed Democrat.
As far as I’m concerned these videos, these blasts from the past, should now be placed on what is a continuous loop, playing over and over again, 24/7 from now and for at least the next 9 months. Not that we’d be able to shame such consummate ideologues like Schumer, but simply because it's such a wonderful opportunity to display their ultimate-hypocrisy and double-standards for all the world to see, from now all the way up to Election Day.
Of course the goal of the left, which should be obvious to all, is to put another activist on the bench to further destroy the Second Amendment and trash our God given rights. Congress and the Senate had better wait until next year or there will be Hell to pay. And as expected ‘Dingy Harry’ Reid has begun making all manner of threats about bringing pressure to bear on the Republicans, so I suppose it’s only a matter of time before we have one more, on what is a long list of many, caves!
