If you’re keeping score at home, this is double standard stimulus #2,706:

President Obama on Tuesday downplayed his decision to filibuster of one of President George W. Bush’s choices to the Supreme Court, and said Senate Republicans should quickly hold a confirmation vote on whomever he chooses to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Obama was one of 25 Democrats to filibuster Bush’s nominee, Samuel Alito, a decade ago.
[…]
“I think what’s fair to say is that how judicial nominations have evolved over time is not historically the fault of any single party,” he told reporters in California. “This has become just one more extension of politics.”

“And, there are times where folks are in the Senate, and they’re thinking… is this going to cause me problems in a primary, is this going to cause me problems with supporters of mine, and so people take strategic decisions,” he said.

That’s quintessential Obama, and yet another exhibit for the expansive “Do As I Say Not As I Do” wing of his presidential library:

Obama starting an answer to a question with “you know… the uh… look…” is the equivalent of a computer screen that’s flashing the word “buffering…”

Not that Obama needs any additional ideas, but this suggestion is probably being kicked around the halls at 1600 Penn:

What better salute to Obama’s final year than an attempt to put The Onion out of business?

Update:

Obama yesterday blasted “venom and rancor” in the Supreme Court debate and was critical of U.S. senators that might refuse to approve a president’s SCOTUS nominee.

Yep, those are terrible things alright:
