Quote for Monday, February 15

The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has raised political posturing to new heights in Washington D.C.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell thinks President Obama should just sit tight and do nothing because there are only 11 months left of his time in the White House. Ted Cruz said he would personally filibuster any attempt to confirm a nomination.  

Thankfully, the voice of reason still breathes despite the toxic Washington air.

monday quote:
"Article II Section 2 of the Constitution says the President of the United States nominates justices to the Supreme Court, with the advice and consent of the Senate.  I can't find a clause that says '...except when there's a year left in the term of a Democratic President.'"
"Senate Republicans took an oath just like Senate Democrats did.  Abandoning the duties they swore to uphold would threaten both the Constitution and our democracy itself.  It would also prove that all the Republican talk about loving the Constitution is just that--empty talk." 
(Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) 1949 -      )
