It Took Chuck Schumer Just Hours To Tell A Bald-Faced Lie About Scalia Replacement

Living the left-wing mantra of ‘never let a crisis go to waste,’ New York Senator [score]Chuck Schumer[/score] wasted little time in telling an easily provable lie about a possible replacement for Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia.

Democrats wasted little time in general by insinuating that Republicans would be playing politics if they dared to withhold action in the event President Obama attempts to fill the vacancy left behind by the judicial conservative giant.

Senator [score]Mitch McConnell[/score] immediately said the Senate should not confirm a replacement for Scalia until after the 2016 election.

Schumer told ABC This Week that Democrats have never done such a thing to a Republican president.

“This kind of obstructionism isn’t going to last,” he said. “And, you know, we Democrats didn’t do this.”

Except, when you did.

Check out the video of Schumer himself saying “We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court…”

Here is the quote:

We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances….

We should reverse the presumption of confirmation. The Supreme Court is dangerously out of balance. We cannot afford to see Justice Stevens replaced by another Roberts, or Justice Ginsburg by another Alito.

Looks like Schumer actually set a precedent that Republicans should now follow.

Will they hold strong for the first time against Obama, and keep any confirmation hearings from taking place until we have a new President? Only time will tell.
