OK GOP, IF THERE WAS EVER A REASON TO NOW BLACK ANY OBAMA SCOTUS NOMINEE … YOU WERE JUST PROVIDED THE REASON.
Barack Obama, what a small, little man … The White House has announced that Barack Obama will not attend the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Weasel Zippers could not have stated it any better. REALLY? what kind of a skeevy and divisive SOB must you be to be a president of the United States and not attend a SCOTUS’ funeral, especially when you plan on putting forth a judicial nominee to replaced the deceased Scalia? There is a reason why Obama is considered the most decisive president ever. He has more than earned the title. I guess Jon Lovitz was correct.
President Barack Obama is preparing for a fierce battle with the Senate over the Supreme Court vacancy, but he’s not planning to attend Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral — a decision that puzzled even some of his allies and incensed conservative media.
“If we want to reduce partisanship, we can start by honoring great public servants who we disagree with,” Obama’s former “car czar” Steven Rattner tweeted with a link to a headline about Obama skipping the funeral.
Fox News host Sean Hannity blasted out his own site’s article that dismissed the decision as disappointingly expected: “Obama To SKIP Scalia Funeral, Here’s A List Of OTHER Funerals He Was Too Busy To Attend.”
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest revealed the president’s plans during the daily briefing, saying Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will go to the Supreme Court on Friday “to pay their respects to Justice Scalia” while the justice lies in repose in the Great Hall. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden, who share Scalia’s Catholic faith, will be at the services instead.
What a sick little man who would let his political ideology get in the way of showing the respect that he should in one’s death. Is it any wonder why so many do not consider this man their president. Classless, simply classless.
