Obama Is Skipping Scalia’s Funeral, Too Busy Picking out Scalia’s Replacement

Obama has announced he is skipping Justice Scalia’s funeral.

He and Michelle will visit the justice while he lies in repose at the Great Hall on Friday, but he is not even going to attend the guy’s actual funeral. They’re sending Biden and his wife instead.

By contrast:

The most recent member of the Supreme Court to die was Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 2005. In that instance, President George W. Bush not only attended the funeral, he also eulogized Rehnquist, who had been nominated to the court by Richard Nixon.

Obama doesn’t even have to play along anymore, it being his last year and all, but still. Is there a more blatant form of disrespect within the bounds of polite society?

Guess Obama is too busy picking out Scalia’s replacement so he can effectively own a third of the Supreme Court for life. Oh, and he claims now in retrospect he feels bad that he filibustered George W. Bush’s nomination of Alito back in 2006 when Obama was a senator, but he also claims somehow that’s totally different than now when Obama is about to be the president who has gotten to nominate a third of the Supreme Court for life (via Politico):

“The president considered the qualifications and world view and credentials and record of the individual that President Bush put forward and then-Sen. Obama raised some objections,” Earnest said.

Uh huh. What about the “world view” of Kagan and Sotomayor and whomever Obama picks next? How is that going to affect the country?

It’s only been three days since and already Republicans are already backing off of their promise to challenge whoever Obama picks to replace Scalia by the way.

The idea that Supreme Court justices are nominated for life is insane.

Meanwhile, Scalia was embalmed within 24 hours of his death, rendering any potential autopsy results useless which is okay, because they weren’t ever going to perform one anyway.

    While part of the country discusses the merits of voting with their middle finger, Obama sits in his ivory tower, giving the peasants the middle finger. Besides, one doesn’t often hear of the murderer attending his victims funeral.

      Vito would disagree with your last sentence.

    DISGRACEFUL, but Obama is nothing but a disgrace anyway, so we can expect nothing less.

  • StevetheHun

    If he’s gonna have the guy whacked like that, he could at least go to the funeral and say nice things.

  • Mom1965

    If it had been one of the Caliphate he has put into position there would be hellto pay and he and his family would be there with HIjab on!

      Please tell me you haven’t passed your fuckwittery on to another generation?

      • Mom1965

        Ahhh should I have coddled you with mention of his lack of tears instead, a true liberal view point you have there stranger.

        • Reverend Draco

          Troll fail.

          No liberals around here, shitferbrains.

            Good thing I am in a negative space today or I would have simply ignored your baiting on the first post. Potty mouth

          • Reverend Draco

            Is “negative space” the new term for “uneducated moron?”

            Or does it simply mean that you’re hiding from becoming slightly educated?

            Vapid harpy.

            Christian clergy or minister which are you? Living a posthumous life…

          • Reverend Draco


            I outgrew the need for fairy tales to guide my life nearly 40 years ago – I concluded the education and objective reality were more important than a disease masquerading as the cure.

            Try again, sheepdip.

            Have a beautiful day beloved of someone, get Outside, get your gardens going, and find a positive flow. I sensed a sweetheart somewhere in your last post. We will talk again sometime, your are a real corker!

          • Reverend Draco

            I will, I have, I shall, always – respectively.

  • Boop Gahev

    If Scalia was shot, Obama would have gone to the funeral to give his gun control eulogy.

    • Mom1965

      Right, so how does he now outlaw pillows? Pillows kill people speech would not be as potent…

  • Mike

    This whole Scalia affair doesn’t pass the smell test. Kinda like the Bin Laden affair. A lot of fishy activities that don’t really add up.

    The audacity of bastardism.

    Kill the assinations.
    Second rule. Stay away, your fingerprints might be found on the assinations Koran.

    • Reverend Draco

      First rule of relevance
      Get a fucking education.
      Second rule – see rule 1.

        Thank you for replying to my post. It keeps it from the bottom of the list.
        Also for pointing this out.
        From the movie Startreck, Caption Kirk said that.
        Just for curiosity, do you smoke marriwana? Or take other drugs?
        You keep replying to others using cuss type words, and broken English.

        • Reverend Draco

          Well hell, cretin – If I used big words, you’d never understand them.

          Now. . . about that education you never got. . .

  • bosunj

    I don’t like Obama either but after Scalia went to the Pentagon to discuss Obama’s arrest by the military I’m inclined to agree.

    Actually I think the man may have a conscience
