I don't think the Republicans will look ugly if they just lay their cards on the table and say straight up that they are not going to allow Obama to fill that position. I mean, they'll look ugly to people who would never vote for them anyway. But I don't think they'd hurt themselves politically. Just say, "Look, we are not going to let this leftist President shape the court for decades to come by filling this position. This is too important. It's going to be the next President."

And that is totally legitimate. It's the way things were designed to work.

I think they'd be fine if they did that. We'll see if they do.
Very interesting take JSO.

I've heard talk that he might be able to do it anyway through some kind of "recess appointment" within a narrow window just before he leaves office and congress is transitioning. Though I'm sure he'd try that if he thinks there's any possible way he can "interpret" the Constitution to mean he can appoint a permanent Supreme Court Justice in a way that never involves the advice and consent of the Senate. But if he's going to try that let him try it and we'll see what happens from there. Do NOT cooperate with him in any way. He does not believe in following the Constitution and he's not going to select anybody who believes in following the Constitution.

Ok Good. Looks like he's screwed as long as they stand their ground and maintain enough seats in the Senate to block things through filibuster if the next President decides to try to re-appoint whoever Obama would stick in temporarily.

Do not let Obama replace Scalia. Just DON'T do it no matter what. They have the power to keep him from doing it and they need to exercise that power.
See John, I think this is what bothers me about the argument. You see it as Obama having an eight year Presidency, except he has not. He's had a four year Presidency + four year Presidency. The Constitution allows the People to elect someone every four years and in 2012, they did and Obama won. The Constitution also says that the President nominates Justices with advice from the Senate, but it doesn't say "except in the last year of his term." Obama appointed two people in his first term. Pause. It is now another term: he has all the Constitutional rights that the People afforded him in 2012 for four years. Not three. But four.

For the Senate to block any appointee just because it's his last year in office would be a mockery to how the Constitution works. The voters in 2008 are not the same as in 2012. If you are to deny the President an appointee because you don't want one man appointing three people, you deny the voice of the People that voted him into office in 2012. Sotomayor and Kagan represent the people who voted him into office in 2008; the new Justice should represent the people who voted Obama into office in 2012.

Very interesting take JSO.
Remember, too, this was before JSO became unhinged. This is cogent, although still odd, JSO-esque posting here. It wasn't until a little bit later that the whole Hillary/Trump thing caused the fuse to blow in his head.

That's a great idea and all, but it's hard to take politics out of, well, politics. The Constitution is very clear - the President gets to pick someone to fill a Court vacancy, and the Senate has to say yes before that person is official. So in that context, Obama is perfectly fine nominating anyone and everyone he wants, whenever he wants to, and the Senate is perfectly fine voting (or in some cases not going to a vote) on anyone and everyone they don't want to fill that vacancy. It may not be pretty, but it's entirely Constitutional.

Oh, and that paragraph from addictinginfo seems like it was written before Bork. All the rules changed after Bork - it's practically Biden's legacy to have introduced contentious Senate questioning of prospective jurors.

Has anyone considered that today's JSO may be writing under duress? Captured by an elite psy-ops unit of left-wing Democrats and writing under threat of torture..? What a propaganda coup if he were to be liberated by the local militia...
