Last night on Fox, Lindsey Graham (R-Sometimes) said that Antonin Scalia’s replacement will be left to “the next president” unless President Obama can find a “consensus” nominee.
Since there’s no such thing as a “consensus” about anything in this hyper-partisan political climate, that means it will be left to the next president.
Reporter John Roberts pointed out to Graham that both Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz believe the appointment to replace Scalia should be left to the next president and asked what he thought.
“Oh, it will be, unless he can find a consensus choice,” Graham replied.
“I will not confirm anyone on Obama’s watch unless it’s an overwhelming consensus choice,” he added later.
