Reading the current news headlines, you would think that the President had already tried to nominate a new Supreme Court Justice and has been unable to do so since he is surrounded by GOP Senators who keep kicking the pen out of his hand.
In this letter to the editor in USA Today, Paul Rapo of Middle Haddam, CT says:
USA TODAY’s editorial “Fill Supreme Court void left by brilliant Scalia: Our view” was well founded. Unfortunately, it failed to single out Republicans for their overreaching refusal to perform their obligations with respect to Supreme Court nominations.
Last time I checked, Mr. Rapo, no one had yet been nominated. Let’s see what the Senate does before we start throwing stones at them.
