Today on Varney & Co., Stuart Varney asked his panel whether or not they felt the Republicans were paying “a political price” by rejecting the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court.
For her part, Tammy Bruce said that no, the Republicans had been clear enough when announcing their refusal to vote on anyone nominated by President Barack Obama almost as soon as Justice Antonin Scalia died. Their refusal to vote on Garland, then, isn’t a political price to pay so much as standing by their word.
Meghan McCain was less measured in her response, claiming that “the average person at home probably doesn’t realize that there are all these intricacies happening.” (That’s not really a wise thing to say on Fox Business Network, which is a network set up to cater to the average person at home who wants to learn more about all those intricacies.)
She wasn’t done there, though; McCain kept moving forward, saying, “This is exactly why people hate President Obama. He will possibly sacrifice this man’s career simply for his own political benefit.”
Varney cut in, telling her people don’t necessarily hate the president, and she recanted, saying people just disagree with him “strongly.”
