"The American People Need to Have a Voice In the Process

Okay, it's not Wisconsin news but --- 

If I hear One More Republican say that the current president should not be allowed to nominate a Supreme Court Justice I'm going to bust a blood vessel. 

LIke this gem

When asked if they would start the process after the new president took office or if they would consider doing it in the lame duck session, Cornyn replied "No, after the next president is selected. That way the American people have a voice in the process."

I need to point out that the American People had a voice in the process.  It was called the 2012 presidential election. What Cornyn is trying to say here is one of the below:

  • It's only the voice of the people if it's funneled through a Republican president
  • It's only the voice of the people if it's funneled through a white president
  • Presidents have three year terms.  After that they might as well just pack up and leave

I'm not sure which he's saying.  Whichever it is, he's wrong.
