Conservative Groups: Obama’s Court Nominee Must Be Stopped at All Costs
Obama-hating conservative groups are really freaking out about the loss of right wing icon Antonin Scalia from the Supreme Court, and are now demanding that Mitch McConnell do everything possible to block anyone Obama nominates — even if it means the GOP loses their Senate majority.
There are so many of these far right advocacy groups, it’s a bit mind-boggling.
“I would rank having a conservative justice as more important than having the majority in the Senate,” said David Bozell, president of For America, a conservative advocacy group. “God knows this Republican majority in the Senate hasn’t done much anyway for conservatism, period.”
“The Home School Legal Defense Association:”
“The Senate isn’t as important on a great number of issues as the Supreme Court. The Senate is not going to determine whether or not we have Second Amendment rights, the Supreme Court is. The Senate is not going to determine marriage, the Supreme Court did. The Supreme Court, not the Senate, determined abortion,” said Mike Farris, chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association.
“The Family Research Council:”
“What is the purpose of having a majority unless you use that majority to defend, uphold and defend the Constitution? This is something the left understands quite well in terms of the purpose of the majority, that’s how we got ObamaCare,” said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council.
These people are so obsessed with obstructing everything President Obama does, they’re calling for the Republican Party to commit what amounts to political suicide.
