Senate Republicans have reportedly agreed that they should not and will not hold a vote or even a hearing for President Obama’s nomination for the Supreme Court.
“No hearing, no votes,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told reporters after members of the panel met with Senate GOP leaders in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s, R-Kentucky, office.
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, echoed Graham: “No hearings.”
It’s fitting that the Obama era will conclude in this manner because this is exactly how it began.
A little over 7 years ago Mitch McConnell held a secret meeting with his colleagues where they pledged to make President Obama a one term president. That didn’t work out for them so well and I don’t believe it will this time.
