Everyone’s Full Of Shit: Joe Biden Edition

Today’s reminder that Everyone’s Full of Shit was provided by Joe Biden. As the NYT tweeted tonight:

Joe Biden is Full of Shit.png

Am I imagining things… or is the New York Times publishing an article that may hurt Obama’s ability to appoint the next Supreme Court Justice? I don’t see any pigs flying, and the sky is blue…. but who knows. Maybe this is just the first sign of things to come….

Recap of why Justice Scalia’s death has been such a big deal: 

  1. Justice Scalia suddenly died earlier this month
  2. The President has the executive power to appoint Supreme Court Justices
  3. Congress has the constitutional right to support/oppose the President’s appointment
  4. The Republicans already publicly stated that they will oppose Obama’s selection until the next POTUS is elected (we will discuss why this is very dumb later)

From the NYT article:

“As a senator more than two decades ago, Vice PresidentJoseph R. Biden Jr. argued that President George Bush should delay filling a Supreme Court vacancy, should one arise, until the presidential election was over, and that it was “essential” that the Senate refuse to confirm a nominee to the court until then.

Mr. Biden’s words, though uttered long ago, are a direct contradiction to President Obama’s position in the battle over naming a successor to Justice Antonin Scalia.”

As we mentioned last week, Chuck Schumer tried to pull the same shit back in 2008 (Chuck is also a high-profile Democrat). FUHHGEDDABOUDIT.

  1. This is another way of saying that all the politicians who have suggested delay (in any year) are wrong, because it’s OUR cases that get delayed or denied as a result of not having fully staffed courts. The same harmful, obstructive behavior has created a backup of more than 70 vacant positions throughout the Appeals Courts.


    • To be honest, I think many “career politicians” purposely don’t get anything done. They are comfortable in their well-paying / influential positions and the status quo.

      Kind of why you see everyone and their mother freaking out about Trump and Sanders (other than the personality and policy flaws, of course).
