What alarms me isn’t Romney confirming he does not oppose moving forward with confirmation of a judge nominated by a Republican President, but that Lindsey Graham is saying they have the votes to confirm the nominee even though we don’t even know who the nominee is yet. For all that Republicans claim to be the party that adheres to the Framers intent, they sure are ignoring that “checks and balances” are kind of a key part of the system, and that goes out the window if Congress simply acts as a rubber stamp for whatever a president wants to do whenever the president is of the same party.
