More lies and hypocrisy from Democrats/Liberals on SCOTUS nomination

More lies and hypocrisy from Democrats/Liberals
Vacancy on Scotus. Obama nominates anti gun judge. Senate (thank God it's in Republican hands now) says they will not consider based on Biden Rule. As NYTimes wrote "WASHINGTON — As a senator more than two decades ago, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. argued that President George Bush should delay filling a Supreme Court vacancy, should one arise, until the presidential election was over, and that it was “essential” that the Senate refuse to confirm a nominee to the court until then. Mr. Biden’s words, though uttered long ago, are a direct contradiction to President Obama’s position in the battle over naming a successor to Justice Antonin Scalia."

Liberals to day, typically lying, are claiming it is being taken out of context or misinterpreted. Biden isn't the only one. Sen Schumer who will be the next Dem. Senate leader, also had the same idea when there was a republican president ending his term.

The people of the US will decide who they want to fill the vacancy on SCOTUS.

Commentary magazine "if the position of the two parties were reversed, it would be the Democrats stonewalling the nominee and the Republicans would be insisting on a vote. In fact, those were exactly the positions of the two sides back in 1992 when Vice President Joe Biden (who was the chair of the Judiciary Committee at the time), vowed to deny a hearing to anyone nominated by the first President George Bush in his last year in office. That was also true in 2007 when Chuck Schumer, who will lead Senate Democrats next year, said his party wouldn’t confirm anyone nominated by the younger President Bush in his last 18 months in office.
These are telling arguments against the president’s self-righteous preaching about the Constitution. He is a hypocrite who didn’t think judicial nominees deserved an up or down vote when he tried to filibuster Justice Alito’s nomination in 2006. Nor did he demonstrate any fidelity to the Constitution when he bypassed Congress on immigration or sought to get the Iran nuclear deal — the most important foreign treaty of the last generation — approved by a filibuster rather than two-thirds majority of the Senate required by the nation’s founding "
