Senator Orrin Hatch has a new reason to block President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland, Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Salon.com reports: Orrin Hatch, one of the senior Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is on a one-man mission to save the American judiciary. As Hatch sees it, this branch of government is under terrible and imminent threat from a malign force that threatens to undermine its legitimacy and corrode the foundations of American democracy.
While attending a “monthly lunch meeting” of “a well-respected legal organization,” protesters arrived “holding professionally printed signs” and began shouting “do your job” at the Republican Senator.
This protest action seems to have riled up Sen. Hatch. In a recent Bloomberg op-ed, the ticked off Utah Senator wrote:
… we can expect professional political activists on the left to ramp up efforts to organize protests and media campaigns, and persistently badger Republican senators to “do their job” by rubber-stamping a nominee in the midst of political turmoil. This partisan campaign by the left is only more evidence that the best way for the Senate to do its job in such a caustic environment is to insulate the Supreme Court from polarizing political gamesmanship.
The liberal left is seeking to bully the Republican-led Senate into ignoring its constitutional responsibilities and further destroying our nation’s delicate system of checks and balances. Reflecting on the Senate’s solemn duty with respect to Supreme Court nominations, I am more resolved than ever to move forward with the confirmation process only after this toxic election season is over.
Subsequently, those “professional political activists” and their well-printed signs are all the confirmation he needed to go forth in good faith obstructing Garland’s nomination to the highest court in the land.
