But Harry has no conscience.
Via Free Beacon:
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) was battered with numerous hypocritical statements he’s made in the past regarding Supreme Court nominations during a difficult appearance on Meet The Press Sunday morning.
Reid, along with numerous other Democrats, has accused Senate Republicans of obstructionism in refusing to take up hearings for Merrick Garland, the Supreme Court nominee by President Obama to replace the late Antonin Scalia.
Meet The Press host Chuck Todd didn’t waste time during their interview, however, immediately playing Reid past clips in refutation of his stance today. In a 2005 speech, back when Republican George W. Bush was president, Reid said, “Nowhere in [the Constitution] does it say the Senate has a duty to give presidential nominees a vote.“
“And yet 11 years later, you wrote this: ‘The Senate’s constitutional duty to give a fair and timely hearing and a floor vote to the president’s Supreme Court nominees has remained inviolable,’” Todd said. “I guess I’m confused. Which is it? What has changed from 2005, when you said there was nothing in the Constitution that said a vote, to 2016?”
