Gingrich Warns: Appoint A Justice In The 'Scalia Tradition' Or Senate Will Obstruct 15.2.2016 Crooks Liars
The Republicans won't give up on the ruse that this particular president, President Obama, twice elected overwhelmingly by a majority, has none of the same powers afforded to the other forty-four presidents who preceded him. A preposterous fallacy is flying around the Beltway that no precedent exists where a Supreme Court Justice appointment has successfully been made by a soon to be ex-President. It is absolutely baseless, and who is more base than Newt Gingrich, who appeared with the Fox and Friends Weekend crew to discuss replacing Scalia. TUCKER CARLSON: Will the president be able to get his choice for the ninth seat on the Supreme Court through or not? GINGRICH: Well he shouldn't be able to. I think it's pretty clear that the historic precedents are in the last year of the presidential term, that there's a bias towards the next president, with the votes of the American people picking that person. Mitch McConnell has got to do two things: refuse to hold hearings have the committee not even ...

Rubio: 'It Doesn't Really Matter What Reagan Did' -- Obama Doesn't Get To Replace Scalia 14.2.2016 Crooks Liars
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio argued on Sunday that Barack Obama should not be able to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in his last year in office because he was a second term president with only a "few months" left. Appearing on at least five Sunday morning shows after the unexpected death of Justice Scalia, Rubio asserted that the voters should be able to weigh in before someone was nominated. "Within the last year of the last few months of the president's term, we should not be appointing Supreme Court justices," Rubio insisted to ABC's George Stephanopoulos. "In the last year of a president's term, in his second term especially, there should not be Supreme Court nominees put into lifetime positions for a president that you're not going to hold accountable at the ballot box." On Meet the Press, Rubio again insisted that there should be no nominations from a "president nearing the last few months of his administration." "Do presidential terms end after three years?" NBC host Chuck Todd ...
