The GOP spokesmen like US Sen. Mitch McConnell almost immediately stated that Republicans would refuse to consider any Supreme Court nominee President Obama might send to the Senate. The US Constitution seems pretty clear on the President's obligation to make a nomination and also clear that Senate should "advise and consent".
Republican apologists are lauding dead Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia for his "originalist" interpretations of the US Constitution. Any time there is a hint that a Supreme Court decision might "create new law", the wingnut right Republicans go nearly berserk raging about their respect and demand for strict adherence to founders idea of the Constitution and the language.
Except now of course when their insane hatred of President Obama leads them to trash the constitution in the interest of partisan venality and tribalism.
As I have said too many times, the GOP hypocrisy is as obnoxious as is heir retrograde policy positions.
Oh, and then their is candidate Cruz waving the Bible as he lies through his teeth. Thanks to Bernie Sanders for noting this other bit of GOP hypocrisy and deception.
