Washington, D.C. – The following quote can be attributed to Penny Nance, CEO & President of Concerned Women for America (CWA) in response to Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nevada) comments that Secretary Clinton should re-nominate Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court if she is elected president:
Judge Garland should politely plead with Sen. Harry Reid to stop “helping” him. Sen. Reid is one of the chief architects of senate dysfunction and as radically left as any senator. So, I guess we should thank him. He confirms the American people’s fears that President Obama will continue to appoint judges who ignore the constitution in order to push for a leftist ideology. Judges who believe the constitution is a living, breathing document they can manipulate at will.
So file this one alongside Planned Parenthood’s endorsement of Judge Garland, pointing to Judge Garland’s left-leaning judicial philosophy. It confirms the importance of the next Supreme Court appointee. The American people deserve a chance to have a say in the type of judge they want to replace the great constitutionalist Antonin Scalia through the upcoming presidential election.
