Do your job Senators, get to work or go home, and save us all some money.
I can only imagine my boss’ reaction if I told them I’d like to wait for the new boss before I take action on his request, or disregard my responsibilities to others.

He was a dark spot on American history, but hopefully he is in a better place now. Condolences to his family and loved ones, regardless of his sins and vanity.

The President in office is the one to appoint the replacement. The Senate is to advise and consent on individual nominees, but to issue a blanket statement that ANY nominee from Obama will be blocked is contrary to the Constitution.
