The Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee has vowed not to hold hearings on any Obama SCOTUS nominees.
The president would like an explanation:
In Oval Office photo op, Pres says it'll be difficult for @SenateMajLdr to explain if blocking SCOTUS confirmation for political reasons.

Fortunately for Obama, he already knows plenty of people who could help explain:
Well, Joe Biden can explain it perfectly. https://t.co/QZNYXPVdMJ

Explain it however Obama explained the filibuster on Alito.

Quoting Barack Obama, Joe Biden & Senator Reid about their blocking judicial nominations neutralizes Dems. https://t.co/Lkfme32wto
