It appears that President Obama will finally nominate judges for the three remaining vacancies on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Republicans are objecting, with Mitch McConnell saying that “The whole purpose here is to stack the court.” Obama’s response should be: Damn right! The Democrats won the presidential election and have a solid majority in the Senate; of course they are going to “stack” the courts with their nominees. That’s exactly how the system is designed to work.
Yes, Mitch McConnell, when Americans vote for a president, one of the things we take into consideration is what type of judge they’ll nominate to serve in our nation’s federal courts.
But we know that you know that, and you’re just crying so the idiots who voted for you will feel good about themselves and ignore the way Reagan and both Bushes “stacked the courts” by your definition.
Oh, also? Go fuck yourself.
