    doesn’t look like Obama will name the replacement. I expect the Republican primary season to get even crazier, now.

      “doesn’t look like Obama will name the replacement.”

      What makes you say that?

        Something in the article made reference to waiting on the next president to name a replacement.

          Nevermind – I realize it’s the BBC article! But they are speculating big time tho….

            February 13, 2016 at 5:47 pm

            Yes, but sadly one has to admit that given the way Republicans have behaved throughout PBO’s terms their speculation doesn’t seem far-fetched.

        • February 13, 2016 at 5:53 pm

          That is BS. Pres Obama will most certainly nominate a successor. Getting it passed may be difficult. He is not going to pass up this opportunity.

            GA BillR.

            Yep.

            We all know its best to IGNORE media speculation, which is wrong more often than right.

            We also know PBO is a DOER and a CHESSMASTER, sees many moves beyond what is visible to the (lazy) onlooker (MSM).

            PBO will nominate a successor — one that may further tear the GOP to shreds.

    I am not sad about this! This realistically changes the balance and swing in the court with the eight members. Scalia was a strong persuader and arm twister from what I’ve read.

    Maybe the Bernbots/bros will vote Hillary now because SCOTUS is very important for them.

    I’m trying to do what my mother always told me. If you can’t say anything nice, say nothing at all. Sigh. If PBO nominates a middle of the road justice, there would be complaints from both sides. I heard that the process may be delayed until after the election in November.

    I wonder if Clarence Thomas will step down now that he doesn’t have a best friend. I don’t see him being as chummy with the other four conservative judges. I think Anton protected him a lot.

    I was coming over to post this news when I saw the new thread. The Republican led Senate will not pass ANY nominee submitted by President Obama, which is going to make Democratic turnout in November all the more crucial. It’s going to be a knock down drag out fight for the presidency with this seat at stake. Damn everyone who decided to stay home in 2014 when Democratic Senate seats were in the balance.

    Not surprising….

  14. February 13, 2016 at 5:38 pm

    i see “the news” people are already trying to set the national discourse about this in the republicans favor. multiple people already saying how our president can’t be “partisan” now and better not try to nominate a liberal, and should probably not try to nominate anyone at all. our national “news” is public enemy #1.

    • 53 hopefruit2
      February 13, 2016 at 5:41 pm

      That’s why they took so long to report it – they had to get their pro-GOP talking points in order. This is a BAD news for the GOP, and there’s no way to spin it.

    • 57 jackiegrumbacher
      February 13, 2016 at 5:42 pm

      Yes, it is, 4 more. You actually have to “fight” the media to function in our democracy. Everything is weighted to the right.

      • February 13, 2016 at 5:46 pm

        yes and yes. i see canada ted cruz seemed to get the memo and tweets out the exact same storyline that’s dominating “the news” already. amazing how quickly they can coordinate the talking points, and unfortunately so much of the public uncritically follows suit.

    • February 13, 2016 at 6:05 pm

      Our President can nominate who ever he want, to hell with the sorry ass Donald Trump media.

    Anyone want to guess the first question at tonight’s debate?

  19. February 13, 2016 at 5:52 pm

  20. February 13, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    No way is PBO going to pass up this opportunity. If the Rs filibuster, that becomes a big election issue.

    • February 13, 2016 at 5:59 pm

      yep. might as well pick someone who will motivate the democratic base, since they won’t vote on anyone he picks. i vote for a.g. loretta lynch! she was just vetted and passed the republican tests.

      😀 😀 I just finished watching this – Macey is a hooooot….and so very appreciative!

      If you need a couple of healthy laughs check out this video of her visit to the White House. 😀

      She’s such a lovely, vivacious and extraordinarily talented five year-old!!!! 🙂 I also immensely enjoyed the video of when she met PBO on the Ellen Show. Totally warms my heart – thanks vc for posting. 🙂

        Hopef, the video with PBO & Ellen was the first time I’d met Macey. I❤❤ how she greeted POTUS with such obvious warmth and joy! She's a very happy and charming little miss – I wish her the very best of everything in life.

    Appears KARMA WON AGAIN ….. that will be my only comment on the demise of a truly monstrous person …

    As to Bernie’s usurpation of Dr King’s legacy ….

    And, Goldie Taylor better be very watchful for mother karma paying a visit ….

    Hope all of you are enjoying your Saturday … back to work …….

      Guy’s not even in his grave, and Trump’s figuring out how it works for him (as if he were a conservative himself, which he isn’t). Of course, that’s Trump’s total bottom line. Ugh.

    Seeking higher ground (for me), I think I’ll second part of what Fr. James Martin – that nice Jesuit priest who’s often on MSNBC and is much involved in social media – wrote:

    “I rarely agreed with his opinions or decisions but respected his intellect and industry and pray that he may rest in peace.”

    Agree with Kyle.

    Bet PBO nominates a pro-life Republican (plenty of those in CA, but GOP would rather our state sink into the Pacific).

    And watch Cruz and Rubio on the hot seat for opposing a GOP Governor from Nevada. Stocking up on popcorn now.

    President Reagan appointed Justice Anthony Kennedy in February 1988 his last full year in office. . Reagan served until January 1989.

    Republicans need another argument and liberals should push back on their usual BS.

    This seems like good karma to wake up to – good to see the GOP showing the world how they are so unfit to run the country. No President has ever had to cope with a such a congress & no congress has ever been so against the American People.

    American politics is just so damn ugly, vicious, selfish, backwards and mostly useless: the legacy Nixon, Reagan, Bush (both of them) and their handlers and acolytes.
