The envelope, please: The most pathetic liberal tweet since Justice Kennedy’s announcement

The envelope, please: The most pathetic liberal tweet since Justice Kennedy’s announcement

Do you recall the time when both houses of Congress were under Democratic control, and the nation elected a man to the presidency who had threatened to “fundamentally transform the nation” if elected? How about the time when that same man, now president, rammed an $831 billion stimulus package through Congress that included hundreds of millions of dollars for contraceptives, then matter-of-factly replied “I won” when Republicans grumbled?

Or how about the time when this same dude haughtily announced to Republicans that he was in the driver’s seat and “they can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.”

They were galling times for conservatives that became ever more galling with each passing action on the president’s part. When conservative Justice David Souter announced his retirement in 2009, Obama nominated as his replacement a Hispanic woman with as much chutzpah as he had, having boasted that “a wise Latina would more often than not, reach a better conclusion” than a white male.

Now the tables have turned. Both houses of Congress are controlled by the Republicans, as is the White House, and once again we find ourselves on the verge a new Supreme Court justice being nominated. And how are Democrats dealing with it?
