To The Daily Sun,
To paraphrase Reagan, "There you go again," this is in regards to the GOP debate Saturday night where a number of presidential candidates expressed their opinion that Congress delay voting on any Supreme Court nomination that President Obama puts forward.
The President of the United States has specific responsibilities laid out by the U.S. Constitution. It states, "The president subject to Senate confirmation appoints ambassadors, justices of the Supreme Court, and all other offices of the United States."
Can you imagine the cry from, not just the GOP but all Americans, if the President did not fulfill his oath of office in other areas for the next year?
Mitch McConnell's edict, said in the early stages of Obama's Presidency; "The single most important thing we want is for President Obama to be a one-term president."
I know they want to continue their "do nothing" obstructionism but this is not governing which is why the truly uninformed, bully, and crass Donald Trump is leading in the polls. Those supporters are backing him because these GOP members of Congress did nothing.
As I watched the GOP debate on Saturday I was so disgusted at the level of petty, bad behavior of some of these candidates. They can't seem to get past the pre-school stage. Is this what America needs or wants? I hope not. There is way too much at stake and the rest of the world is watching.
