Democrat Hypocrisy

From the Washington Post: Thanks to a VC commenter, I discovered that in August 1960, the Democrat-controlled Senate passed a resolution, S.RES. 334, “Expressing the sense of the Senate that the president should not make recess appointments to the Supreme Court, except to prevent or end a breakdown in the administration of the Court’s business.”  Each of President Eisenhower’s SCOTUS appointments had initially been a recess appointment who was later confirmed by the Senate, and the Democrats were apparently concerned that Ike would try to fill any last-minute vacancy that might arise with a recess appointment. Not surprisingly, the Republicans objected, insisting that the Court should have a full complement of Justices at all times. Of course, the partisan arguments will be exactly the opposite this time.
So, to Obama, Hillary, Bernie and Harry Coward/Liar/Senile/Pathetic Reid and all the other democrats:


  1. I don't think Obama has proposed making a recess appointment, has he?

  2. No, but it was talked about and if wanted to do it, he would have to do it this week and may next and that would make the justice able to serve until January.
