Progressive Democrats Want to Change the Constitution

Gateway Pundit reports that NY Senator Schumer(D) wants to change Article 2 Section 2 of the Constitution according to a speech he gave at the American Constitution Society convention in Washington.

New York Sen. Charles E. Schumer, a powerful member of the Democratic leadership, said Friday the Senate should not confirm another U.S. Supreme Court nominee under President Bush “except in extraordinary circumstances.”

“We should reverse the presumption of confirmation,” Schumer told the American Constitution Society convention in Washington. “The Supreme Court is dangerously out of balance. We cannot afford to see Justice Stevens replaced by another Roberts, or Justice Ginsburg by another Alito.”

I guess this would only be until a Progressive Democrat gets elected.

The Progressive Democrats again claim to be lied to, or as Schumer puts it “hoodwinked”

Senators were too quick to accept the nominees’ word that they would respect legal precedents, and “too easily impressed with the charm of Roberts and the erudition of Alito,” Schumer said.

“There is no doubt that we were hoodwinked,” said Schumer, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee and heads the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Schumer also says that

“greatest regret” in the last Congress was not doing more to scuttle Alito.

So I guess his vote for the Iraq war was not as bad as this as not trying to stop Alito from getting vote in.

Senator Schumer, your attempt to block the Constitutional process should be your greatest regret.

  1. I love it when he says the court is out of balance. You can read the constitution and not find any article perscribing the make up of the court. Schumer’s issue is that more conservatives on the court means less chance to write laws from the bench rather than follow the constituion. He is also for ignoring precedent when he disagrees with the court, but for it when he agrees.

  2. Gangsta Rapper MC Chuckie S is a perfect fir for today’s modern demoguogic party.

    No matter how qualified somebody is, if they disagree with him, they will not get approved. John Roberts is an intellectual titan. Chuckie S is a lilliputian.

    Bring it on, Chuckie. The President took down Saddam. He can handle you.
