Senator Grassley is the R in charge of the Supreme Court senate committee that decides if they will bring a candidate up for a vote in the senate.... As it currently stands they make the decision as to whom will emerge as the official nominee if they CHOOSE to bring it before the senate for a vote.

They do not have to bring it before the whole senate to vote at this time.  Obama has picked choices that were confirmed by the whole senate on a 93-0 for their current positions.

Of course he will put pressure on some senators (who are up for re-election) and attempt to get them to urge that the senate take these nominees up for a vote.

The selected Judge can tilt the court into a leftist position if he is appointed....And no one with a brain wishes to see that happen to this great nation.

Obama's Nuclear Option

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/04/06/obama-s-nuclear-option-for-the-supreme-court-order-the-senate-back-into-session.html

Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution states that the president “may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper.”Based on past cases, what counts as an ‘extraordinary Occasion’ is almost entirely up to the president.

“It appears that it is within the president’s unchecked discretion,” According to the redoubtable Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSBlog, Given that broad leeway, it’s easy to see how a prolonged period of an eight-person Supreme Court could count as “extraordinary.”

Senator Grassley is the R in charge of the Supreme Court senate committee that decides if they will bring a candidate up for a vote in the senate.... As it currently stands they make the decision as to whom will emerge as the official nominee if they CHOOSE to bring it before the senate for a vote.

Grassley is violating his constitutional responsibility as is the entire republican caucus in that matter.

The Constitution states:
He (the President) shall have the Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Councils, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

It says that the PRESIDENT shall nominate candidates.  It is the presidents constitutional duty to do so.

It also says that the SENATE SHALL give Advice and Consent and APPOINT the nominee to the office.  It doesn't say that the senate can not bother to act, or can ignore it and hope it goes away, or to table the nominations until upcoming election cycles.  It is their JOB to provide Advice and Consent, which they are clearly not doing.  Once again the GOP demonstrates that they don't care about the Constitution except perhaps for a part of the second amendment!

Keep left, As most liberals are... you have a tendency to forget truth and facts if it is NOT in your favor. It wasn't all that long ago that R's were in the WH and a nominee was needed.

 You D's were against the idea of appointing anyone in the last year of a presidential term.

I know R's are basically more honest than libs... So they will attempt to be as honorable as the D's have been.

Don't expect this guy to get a hearing or a vote anytime soon.  He is a sacrificial goat anyhow, Obama knows the R's will never endorse this guy. And Obama believes that Hillary is going to win and it will be just like Obama serving another 4 year term, so he is waiting for Hillary to appoint someone a lot further to the left.

Uncle Joe Biden is the guy who made that statement about Bush nominating a justice in his last year as POTUS. 

Now Uncle Joe said it was a HYPOTHETICAL speech. 

Imagine that, a Democrat lying.
