There is one president at a time and he retains all his constitutional powers & duties until his term ends.— David Frum (@davidfrum) February 13, 2016
We no longer have the decency to allow a family even 24 hours to recover from the shock of a sudden death of a politician before politicizing the death.Right. Argument we should wait for next prez is blatantly self-serving - & you know Dems wld've said same under Bush https://t.co/Od1A5jRp9l— Toby Harnden (@tobyharnden) February 13, 2016

I have news for David Frum. 4-4 votes are just fine until January 20, 2017, when we get a new president. Given the disrespect Democrats showed Republicans when they controlled all of Congress when Bush 43 was president, get bent.
Comity ended with Reid and Pelosi. This is how they want to play, the F them.
Scalia was a great justice who believed in civil liberty, and fought against the expansion of the federal government into a $4 trillion ogre that cannot protect us from Muslim terrorists and Mexican gangs. We do not need another sexist, racist like Sotomayor on the court. Barack Obama has twice shown he is incapable of appointing anyone other than a hack to the high court.
Meanwhile, Democrats are demanding a rubber-stamp Senate.
