Chuck Schumer stated then:“We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances. They must prove by actions not words that they are in the mainstream rather than we have to prove that they are not. I will do everything in my power to prevent one more ideological ally from joining (Justices John) Roberts and (Samuel) Alito.”
Meanwhile, Schumer appeared on ABC’s “This Week” yesterday to blast Mitch McConnell for encouraging the Senate to not move forward with any nominees, stating that “kind of strategy isn’t going to last,” adding that “the American people don’t like obstruction.”
Look who’s talking.
