Ever since he lost control of Congress in 2010, Obama has been running roughshod over them. They don’t do what he wants? Well, he just takes out his pen and his phone.
Well, now, let’s see him try to “pen and phone” his way through a Supreme Court nomination.
Half a dozen scriptures come to mind that would be good lessons for Obama here. Here are a couple:
Matt 26:52 – “For all that take the sword shall die by the sword.”
Matt 7:2 – “With what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”
Gal 6:7 – “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Or, in modern terms, turnabout is fair play. In other words, by his conduct he hasn’t earned any respect or cooperation from Congress. So if Congress doesn’t want to play ball with him on a Supreme Court nomination, that’s my view of justice.
And Obama’s lack of respect for the role of Congress is simply a manifestation of his lack of respect for the will of the people. Congress was turned over to the Republicans in large measure as part of a popular rebellion against Obama. It’s time he was told to just sit down and listen. He’s not going to get his way this time–the people have spoken.
Obama has committed more impeachable offenses during his tenure than all of his predecessors combined. From abrogation of the treaty clause with the Iran deal, to re-writing Obamacare on the fly, to refusing to enforce immigration laws, and so on. Yet Congress will not impeach him. His administration has also been rife with scandal. From Fast and Furious, to the persecution of conservatives by the IRS, the Benghazi scandal, corruption at the EPA, the Clinton email coverup, and more. Yet Congress has not called for a single special prosecutor. The least the Senate can do is obstruct his opportunity to turn the highest court in the land into an agent for his radical transformation of America.
