President Obama is at it again. He is trying to be reasonable while the Republican obstructionists are totally against that.
He has laid out the qualities that he is looking for in a Supreme Court Justice nominee.
- He wants someone that is eminently qualified.
- He wants someone that understands the role is to interpret the law, not make the law.
- He wants someone that understands that there are gray areas and in those cases, they should understand the way the world really works.
None of these sound radical. None of these sound even remotely objectionable.
Wouldn’t the right thing to do be to wait and see who Obama nominates before making a decision?
Well, no. Because that would be reasonable. And time after time, the Republican congress has proven that they don’t really care what President Obama is doing, they just know they are against it. They are unreasonable. They are putting politics before the American people. They are childish and mean spirited.
