Obama Will Choose Who He Wants For Supreme Court

April 21st, 2010at 06:17pm Posted by Eli

I know we’re supposed to read this as “Obama will choose a progressive because the GOP will obstruct him no matter what he does,” but I’m reading it as “Obama will choose a pro-corporate centrist because he likes pro-corporate centrists, not because he’s afraid of Republican obstruction.”  So if he makes a lousy pick, it’s because he wants to, not because he’s trying to placate the GOP.  (It’s like healthcare reform all over again…)

Also, this just cracked me right up:

The White House seems confident that because Democrats allowed votes on President George W. Bush’s nominees, the 41 Senate Republicans won’t stand in the way with the highly unusual judicial filibuster this year.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!  Good luck with that, guys.
