Republican Senate = Permanent Conservative Majority on Supreme Court
If Republicans take the Senate this November, President Obama has a snowball's chance in Hell of ever getting a liberal justice onto the Supreme Court. “Liberal” you understand means anyone to the left of Sean Hannity.
The last Democratic president to get his Supreme Court nomination through a Republican Senate was Grover Cleveland. In 1895.
Not very encouraging, is it.
This is just one more reason (as if we didn't have enough already) for Democrats and liberals to NOT sit out the 2014 election because “there's no difference between the two parties,” “I'm disappointed in Obama,” “this isn't a presidential election; I'll vote in 2016,” etc.
