President Obama has chosen NOMINATED Merrick Garland to replace Supreme Court Justice Scalia

Without the Senate's approval, nobody gets "chosen".

He could choose Mother Theresa, Billy Graham, or Saint Francis, and it wouldn’t matter.

It should be left to the people to decide in this upcoming election. Pick a new president and a new senate, and then we’ll know that we know that the true will of the people was involved in any radical realignment of the Supreme Court.

On September 6, 1995, President Bill Clinton nominated Garland to the D.C. Circuit seat vacated by Abner J. Mikva.

Garland received a hearing before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on December 1, 1995.[8] However, his nomination languished under the Republican-controlled Senate until after the 1996 election. At the time of his nomination, many Republican senators cited as their reason for objecting to his nomination the fact that they did not believe that the D.C. Circuit needed an additional judge.[citation needed]

After winning the 1996 presidential election, Clinton renominated Garland on January 7, 1997.[9] Garland was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on March 19, 1997 in a 76-23 vote and received his commission on March 20.[10] He became Chief Judge on February 12, 2013.

He can join Harriet Myers in the “not quite” column of history.

As if Ginsburg, Kagen and Breyer weren’t enough liberals, Obama wants yet another communist, self loathing Jew on the Supreme Court.

Talk about over representation.
