Lefty Hashtag #DoYourJob Trends on Twitter

Trigger Warning:
They're mad as hell, and they're not gonna take it anymore!

Leftist anger at the GOP boiled over on social media late Tuesday evening, around about the same time as the Nevada caucus was going on.  The rising tide of rage was enough to send #DoYourJob trending on Twitter for a few hours.  Much of the anger came from Lefties incensed that the GOP would even consider not rubber stamping a SCOTUS appointee from Obama.  That's not surprising since Obama started the whole damn thing.  A few conservatives got in on the action, but for the most part it was a Lefty screamfest.

I went ahead and plumbed the depths of #DoYourJob and took out some choice tweets from both the left and the right.  Let's take a look at them, shall we?
Oh my, it seems that MoveOn.org, and indeed all leftists, thinks #DoYourJob means "rubber stamp Obama's nominee no matter what!"
Nice try using the Constitution to try to make the argument that the GOP has to consider a SCOTUS nomination.  Unfortunately for the Left, that's not the case at all:
The Constitution is indeed clear on this issue, but not in the way the president suggests. Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution states that the President “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.” Notice that the Senate is not required to give its “advice and consent.” Rather, its consent is a prerequisite to enabling the president’s nominee to take up his or her office.
Article II, Section 2 does not lay out any specific procedure by which the Senate can refuse its consent. It does not indicate whether it must do so by taking a vote, or whether it can simply refuse to consider the president’s nominee at all. However, Article I, Section 5 states that “Each House may determine the rules of its proceedings.” That power includes the rules for considering judicial nominations, as well as all other Senate business. Thus, so long as the Senate has established rules that allow it to refuse to vote on a nominee, it can do so – just as it can refuse to vote on bills, treaties, or any other business that comes before it.
Two points here.  One, I think it's hilarious that Lefties are screeching that the GOP isn't doing the job that THEY hired them to do.  I doubt any one of them actually voted for a Republican.  Secondly, I love the fact they're trying to imply that Americans are hurt by having a SCOTUS vacancy go unfilled.  So what exactly does happen with a 4-4 tie on the SCOTUS?  Turns out, not a whole hell of a lot:
"If the Court divides 4-4 the lower court opinion is affirmed without creating any Supreme Court precedent," said Jeffrey Fisher, a professor of law at Stanford University.
The last time that happened was in 2010, when the Supreme Court split 4-4 over a copyright-infringement case involving Costco and a Swatch Group unit. Kagan also recused herself from that case for the same reason.
Of course the Left never lets a manufactured constitutional crisis go to waste.
Oh you silly lefties.  We already covered all of this.  But hey, while we're talking about it, let's take a look at Joe Biden circa 1992:
Wonder if he was doing his job?

Wading through the cesspool that is #DoYourJob it becomes more and more clear that this whole "constitutional crisis" was cooked up entirely by Obama and the Left.  Why?  So that the GOP would be pressured into rubber stamping whatever socialist whack job Obama happened to nominate.  Will it work?

Well that's the million dollar question, now isn't it?
