The Myth of the Stolen Supreme Court Seat

2017_02-scalia-seat-wasnt-stolen

The myth of the “stolen seat” stems from the GOP-majority Senate’s refusal to vote last year on President Obama’s nominee to fill Antonin Scalia’s seat.  

But the standard of not confirming a Supreme Court nominee in the final year of a presidency was set by two prominent Democrat leaders, Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer.

Does anyone honestly think that, had the roles been reversed in 2016, and a Democrat-majority Senate faced a Republican lame duck president’s nominee, Sen. Harry Reid would have held a confirmation vote?
