Democrats are furious this week over the fact that many Senate Republicans have promised to block any Supreme Court nomination Obama makes to replace Antonin Scalia, who died last Saturday.
“I am amused when I hear people who claim to be strict interpreters of the Constitution suddenly reading into it a whole series of provisions that are not there,” Obama said as he got defensive during a Tuesday press conference.
The president never expected one brave reporter to respond to this by calling him out as the hypocrite that he is.
According to Right Wing News, a reporter then stood up and asked Obama, “How do you respond to Republican criticism that your position is undercut by the fact that you and other members of your administration who were in the Senate at the time tried to filibuster Judge [Samuel] Alito in 2006?”
Obama clearly stumbled when he stammered to give an answer.
“You know the a, look, I think what’s fair to say is that how judicial nominations have evolved over time is not historically the fault of any single party,” Obama replied. “This has become just one more extension of politics. And there are times where folks are in the Senate, and they’re thinking as I just described primarily about, ‘Is this gonna cause me problems in a primary? Is gonna cause me problems with supporters of mine?’ So people take strategic positions, and I understand that.”
Once again, Barack Hussein Obama has been exposed as a hypocrite in front of the entire nation. SHARE this story if you can’t wait for him to leave the White House!
