Political Extortion: President Obama Employs Chicago Politics in Supreme Court Nomination Process

President Obama is bringing the “Chicago Way” to the Supreme Court nomination process.  Simply put, he is engaging in political extortion to force his will on the American people.

First, he floated the name of a Republican governor in hopes that it would cause a rift in the Senate majority’s principled stand against a rushed confirmation process in an election year.

Now, President Obama is vetting (read: intentionally leaking his potential nominee) one of his law school classmates in order to politically extort the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee into bowing to his will.

He is attempting to use a judge from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley’s home state of Iowa, as the Senator faces a tough reelection fight, as leverage to force him cave on confirmation hearings.

It’s a shameless shakedown.  It’s the Chicago way.

But it’s not the American way.  It’s not how the Constitution works.
