Moonbat comics creators on Antonin Scalia's passing

This shouldn't come as a surprise at all:



Here's our constitutional scholar pal Ron Marz:



This was response to a tweet which said "Obama, on the other hand, not only voted against all of Bush's SCOTUS nominees; he voted to filibuster all of them, too. Precedent matters."

But, according to Marz, because Obama was elected (twice), this means he should get whatever he wants. Never mind that the decisions he made after being elected (twice) led to losing the House of Representatives and, more importantly, the Senate.

Y'know, the Senate which has the constitutional power to approve or reject the president's Supreme Court nominees.



No sh**, Gerry. Who said he didn't? Part you skipped: The Senate has to the right approve or deny ("advise and consent"). Whoops.

Read above, too, Dan Slott:



Mental midget.

And be sure to check out Mark Waid's timeline -- all chock full of selected quotes and instances of GOP SCOTUS politicization, but nary a word on those Democratic. Like Chuck Schumer calling for blocking all of George W. Bush's appointees. Or when, in 1960, when Democrats wanted to nix any election year SCOTUS appointments (remember, Eisenhower was prez that year).

Not to mention, here's then-Senator Obama himself on the "president won the election so he should get what he wants" line:

“There are some who believe that the President, having won the election, should have complete authority to appoint his nominee…that once you get beyond intellect and personal character, there should be no further question as to whether the judge should be confirmed. I disagree with this view.”

Always remember, those of you on the right side of the political spectrum (or even in the center) -- this is what contemporary comicbook folk think of you and your beliefs.
