    In my opinion he is shaming Republicans into approving Garland. In these times of rebelling against establishment he is preaching a lesson in ethics to the GOP. I don't think it will work. Even if Garland would have been easily passed I think his speech further guarantees a stalemate.

    Yes, it is only a show to the public that he is doing his job as he should, but of course knew he would be torpedoded. Only some more oil on the fire, that's all.

    Exactly Dutch, If he wanted help from the GOP he wouldn't have been talking down to the GOP. His speech was more like a reaction to the GOP already not confirming Garland and pointing out why they should have confirmed Garland. Not a conciliatory position in view of the already documented opposition to this president picking a justice.

    Why does President Obama want to deny Hilary the opportunity to nominate a Justice? If the GOP is capable of blocking this nomination by this President and the GOP wants to wait on the next President , I say let them, after all what makes them so sure it won't be Hilary?
