I'm assuming this is modded down because there is very little chance Obama will get a nomination through before Trump is elected, but today is a very, very dark day for American freedom.

More likely was modded down because for many people Truth = Troll. Which is horribly self defeating for the extreme left. The republicans control nearly 2/3rds of the states and are gearing up for an article V convention.

Well McConnell has said Obama can pound sand on getting that replacement

I'll lay odds that the usual suspects demonstrate they neither know or care about the constitution by throwing tantrums and shouting "They can't do that"

The answer is of course "YES WE CAN"

From Article II, Section 2 of the US Constitution:

        He [The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

Sorry, Zuck. You'll have to look elsewhere for the data of impoverished people with no recourse. Putting the political issue to one side, I am so glad there are still people on earth that will stand up to Ametican corporations!

Thank you for being such a white knight and making certain these people will never be able to access the evils of Wikipedia or free online education.
