Because they have a right to be obdurate, there being no explicit constitutional proscription against this.

Goerge Will, finally coming out in the open.

Donald J. Trump, thank you. If you did nothing more than out all these people and organizations who hate the U. S., it would have been a lifetime achievement award level accomplishment.

— George Will is a Pulitzer Prize–winning syndicated columnist

And an all around elitist twit.

Ok, that’s it. Will is a commie now and his position is indefensible. I love baseball and I don’t even want to hear his opinion on that now, either.

Why would you want to hear his opinion on baseball? Did he play the game? From the looks of him, I think the closest he got to baseball is being the equipment manager.

A lot of GOPers don’t want to give Hllary the chance to nominate Scalia’s replacement.

Yep, I heard him on this topic in the PUNdit arena this morning, he is a man in denial. McConnell made it clear as day that he WILL NOT look at this or any other person for acceptance in SCOTUS until the new president is elected. History has shown that for 70 year this has been the case. History has also shown that when democrats ran the senate and the congress in 2005 and 2007, they did the same thing.

I think they conveniently forgot

Georgie. Think about this. How much hell do you think your commie ‘RAT pals would be raising RIGHT NOW if the president was an American who wanted to appoint a conservative to your precious “Supreme” court? Think about it Georgie. Use your noggin’ for just once. Americans are tired of the GOP bending over for the Kenyan ALL OF THE TIME. The boy is a spoiled brat who always wants his way. He shouldn’t be encouraged. Take your “indefensible” and shove it.

Go away George. Reason and principle no longer apply in the Republican Party.
