Hair on Fire News Talk Radio /Passing of Justice Antonin Scalia by Bruce Ash Audio

America has lost a giant. Justice Antonin Scalia’s passing has created an intellectual void at the court which will be difficult to fill.
Scalia understood the constitution is the fragile thread which has held the country together through some very difficult periods in our history.

Like FDR  President Obama recognizes he has a chance to complete his transformation of our country and now the constitution by making a lame duck appointment to The Supreme Court. The president wants to pack the court with another leftist.

The US Senate can place a hold on any federal court nomination. Within an hour after the announcement of Scalia’s death Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced “The American people must have a voice in the selection of the next justice. Therefore this nomination should not be filled until we have a new president.”

Democrats have declared this to be “outrageous” but they forget the manner in which they treated Clarence Thomas , Robert Bork and other Republican nominees to federal courts.
It makes perfect sense to empower the American people to first elect a new president who will select the next Supreme Court Justice.
