    Default 1992 - Joe Biden says NO Supreme Court nominations till after election.

    HAHAHAHA. Just like in 2006 when obozo voted to filibuster the nomination of Alito. Dems are busted again. HAHAHA

    http://www.redstate.com/absentee/201...-due-election/

    It is my view that if a Supreme Court Justice resigns tomorrow or within the next several weeks, or resigns at the end of the summer, President Bush should consider following the practice of the majority of his predecessors and not name a nominee until after the November election is completed.

    The senate too, Mr. President, must consider how it would respond to a Supreme Court vacancy that would occur in the full throes of an election year. It is my view that if the president goes the way of Presidents Fillmore and Johnson and presses an election year nomination, the Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings on the nomination until ever, until after the political campaign season is over.

    And I sadly predict, Mr. President, that this is going to be one of the bitterest, dirtiest presidential campaigns we will have seen in modern times.

    I’m sure, Mr. President, after having uttered these words, some, some will criticize such a decision and say that it was nothing more than an attempt to save a seat on the court in hopes that a Democrat will be committed to fill it. But that would not be our intention, Mr. President, if that were the course we were to choose as a senate to not consider holding the hearings until after the election. Instead it would be our pragmatic conclusion that once the political season is underway, and it is, action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over. That is what is fair to the nominee and essential to the process. Otherwise, it seems to me Mr. President, we will be in deep trouble as an institution.

    Amazing how different they all sound now. Obama in 2007, it's our duty to "and Consent" and we should filibuster, in fact two of them. Now: "They must vote!"

    J. Robinette Biden, after telling the President he should not nominate anybody until after the November election:

    "The Senate too, Mr. President, must consider how it would respond to a Supreme Court vacancy that would occur in the full throws of an election year. It is my view that if the President goes the way of Presidents Fillmore and Johnson and presses an election year nomination, the Senate Judiciary committee should seriously consider NOT scheduling committee hearings on the nomination until after the political campaign season is over. And I sadly predict, Mr. President, that this is going to be one of the bitterest, dirtiest Presidential campaigns we will have seen in modern times. I'm sure Mr. President after uttering these words some, some, will criticize such a decision and say that it was nothing more than an attempt to save a seat on the court in hopes that a Democrat will be permitted to fill it, but that would not be our intention, Mr. President, if that were the course we were to choose as a Senate... that once the political season is under way, and it is, action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over. That is what is fair to the nominee, and essential to the process. Otherwise, it seems to me Mr. President, we will be in deep trouble as an institution."

    He goes on to argue that a "few cases" chosen 4 to 4 would not matter considering the cost to the Senate, the Congress and the nation as a whole should they be led to argue a SCOTUS under the acerbic and divisive condition of the politics of a Presidential campaign.

Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    J. Robinette Biden makes some good points and can speak well if he has notes to refer to and doesn't go off on a weird tangent or ask crippled people to walk....

    good point. It's always all politics all the time, but even more so with less chance of considered thought during a presidential campaign

    Yeah, this president has created a much larger problem and a far more divisive political environment.

    Dear JPP Reader:

    Why nominate? Why not reduce the SC by one as each crook expires?

    Can you just imagine what potential nominees are thinking, knowing that it would be their undoing.

    OBAMA: How would you like to be my Supreme Court nominee?
    CANDIDATE: FUCK NO!!

    SEDITION: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.

    I do. A nomination during a rancid campaign season like this one is unfair to the Nominee, the People, the Senate, et al. More especially the Nominee. Who the heck would allow their name to be put out there knowing that you were unlikely to get the seat and if there are hearings will be borked like nobody's business?

    I also agreed with HillBillary when she said this:
