Senator Murray Confronted About Supreme Court Nomination Tactics [VIDEO]
Courtesy of Laughing at Liberals, and Michael Strickland at Progressives Today, here's a very telling video featuring WA Senator Patty Murray. With the death of Antonin Scalia, Democrats are now blasting the GOP over their attempts to hold up Obama from potentially naming a successor to the Supreme Court until after the November election, and he is out of office.
Murray spoke at a recent Planned Parenthood rally in Olympia, and in this video posted February 15th, accused the GOP of a variety of tactics, according to Progressives Today:
"United states Senator Patty Murray gave a speech at a Planned
Parenthood rally at the capitol in Olympia, where she dogged on the Republicans for holding up an Obama Supreme Court nominee, made fun of Ted Cruz, and said Republicans “Watch Mad Men and think it’s a how-to.”
Strickland and Laughing at Liberals confronted Murray after her speech, and asked her about similar tactics the Democrats pulled on former President Bush during his term:
"After the speech, I had an opportunity to ask her about Senator Schumer’s similar tactic of wanting to hold up Bush Supreme Court nominations when he was nearing the end of his Presidency. Senator Murray’s staffers blocked me as they shuttled her into the get away car, and Senator Murray had no interest in answering the question about her own party’s hypocrisy."
Here is her response, captured on video courtesy of Michael Strickland, Laughing at Liberals, and Progressives Today.
