    Obama to skip Scalia's funeral


    President Barack Obama is preparing for a fierce battle with the Senate over the Supreme Court vacancy, but he’s not planning to attend Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral — a decision that puzzled even some of his allies and incensed conservative media.

    "If we want to reduce partisanship, we can start by honoring great public servants who we disagree with," Obama's former "car czar" Steven Rattner tweeted with a link to a headline about Obama skipping the funeral.

    Perhaps the family has expressed that he not attend?
    No surprise that SNIP Sean Hannity would be involved in stirring up the masses.

    Wonder why the approach with this isn't "reserve judgment until we got all the details" as he and political conservatives kept saying with the police shooting videos?:rolleyes:

    And you know this from a public statement from the family?

    Golf is more important to the tyrant in chief Obama. I bet he won't hesitate to name a successor. If he could just find a gay Muslim black woman.

    Obama is boycotting the funeral because Scalia offends the gay and lesbian community, staunch supporters of the Democrat Party. Gays are already attacking Scalia and have joined Obama in denigrating Scalia even before he is buried.

    So where's the link? From what I've seen, the family hasn't said anything publicly about him attending or not attending.

    I don't believe the GOP will let Obama slip in a SCOTUS judge during his crippled (oops I meant lame) duck year.

    Why? Because of what the Dems did to Robert Bork.

    GOP "OK we will play by the DNC rules".

    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/431343/robert-bork-devastating-democrats-post-scalia-case

    Oh and don't forget the Schumer incident when he vowed to block any of Bush's SCOTUS nominations.

    But knowing the Republicans they just might not even use this ammo and let Obama appoint himself (joke of course).

    Anyone depending on you to deliver the truth will remain ignorant. Good thing for me in that I don't trust much of anything you say.

    Don't care if you do or not.

    Your standard answer when asked for a link to back up some of your garbage is to respond that you won't do our homework for us.

    Now, you say you don't like backatchas? Who cares?

    I didn't ask you to care. ;)

    And that's fine with me.Thumbsup As I did my homework and already know that no such statement from the family exists and you're just making stuff up.

    No you didn't. Your earlier statements in this thread proved you don't read what is posted and can't be trusted to tell the truth. Ever.

    Why don't you stick to the white privilege garbage, you have it down pat. Not a word of it is yours but you repeat garbage pretty well.

    Right because YOUR opinion about what you think I haven't done is more prone to be right than my KNOWING what I have done.Rolleyes
    Stop being simple.

    The only thing my earlier statements should tell you is that you tend to lie.

    White privilege obviously has you thinking you can make up any kind of story and folks have to believe it.

    How was that?

    What a blow to the 'original intent' of the constitution that was.

    Obama is too political to go to a funeral of a conservative. He said that he is not going. The Democrats, led by the gays, may even picket the funeral. You saw the social media explode with vile comments--Obama has to do what the Democrats want.

    Obama is a petty little man with no compassion and no heart and no brain.
