Schumer barefaces on Supreme Court picks.

There’s a certain refreshing honesty in Chuck Schumer’s blatantly naked partisanship.  When asked about this statement by Joe Biden in 1992 about George HW Bush getting a Supreme Court pick:

“It would be our pragmatic conclusion that once the political season is underway — and it is — action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over,” Biden, then a Delaware senator and Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said in June of 1992. “That is what is fair to the nominee and essential to the process.”

…Schumer responded:

“Look, the simple answer to this, which everyone is saying everywhere is, ‘Do your job.’ It doesn’t matter what anybody said in the past. Do your job. It’s working,” Schumer said. He claims he had not seen Biden’s exact statement but when pressed about it, he repeated, “We should do our job.”

Note that Chuck Schumer himself isn’t being refreshingly honest. He’s merely admitting that words just don’t matter. Well, if you’re a Democrat, at least.

  1. Nope. Mr. “I won” can go screw himself as far as I’m concerned. He gets zero breaks from me.

      1. Plus, there’s always the possibility of Harry Reid receiving another visit from the Rubber Band Man…
