Should Obama Leave Scalia's Replacement To the Next President

Updated on February 14, 2016

Antonin Scalia Is Dead

Since the announcement of his departure, there have been nothing but political footballs between the Democrats and the Republicans as to what needs to happen next. Republicans want the next president to be responsible for Scalia's replacement; Democrats want it to happen right away. Although you may not care much about Supreme Court Justices - you should - but you should understand at the very least why the partys cannot agree on how best to proceed. Don't expect they will ever. While I am in no position to change that, let me offer the next best thing, an understanding of the fight and what the Obama administration should do. Read the full article at http://peoplebranch.org/2016/02/14/should-obama-replace-antonin-scalia/ to see how much partys take precedence over the country's wellbeing.

      Thanks much, I appreciate the comment.

      I do agree the GOP should go forward with Obama's pick but for a different reason. Although the process of choosing Justices is very partisan driven, it is my hope the Justices can deliberate without any pressure from either side.

      Great blog. I say this as a staunch GOPer, I think they should just vote on Garland and move on. In fact, I think we should call the President's bluff on this one by voting "Yea."

      Garland is better than the alternative under an HRC Presidency. We're gonna lose this election, why not stop the bleeding a little. Shared.
