Loretta Lynch as hopeful nominee to succeed Justice Antonin Scalia

Italians have a Proverb, "He that deceives me Once, it's his Fault; but Twice it is my fault". Republicans have tried to hold up President Barack Obama's nomination of Attorney General Loretta Lynch but they failed. Now, she may be nominated again but this time to be the successor to the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
NBC News reports Loretta Lynch is currently being considered for the Supreme Court appointment.
In other words:
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Well, it looks like the Republicans are setting themselves up to look like fools (again). They played power games with the Lynch appointment to be Attorney General and now they're faced with the stigma they'll wear if they ignore her nomination to the Supreme Court.

When Republicans rudely and ignorantly ignored the brilliant appointment of Loretta Lynch to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General, they never dreamed there'd be another opportunity on the political horizon to vote on her nomination to the Supreme Court.  

Republicans must pay attention to the proverb, about being twice shamed, because when they caustically ignored the Lynch nomination to Attorney General for a protracted number of weeks, they looked like racists, anti-woman and politically incompetent fools. If President Barack Obama nominates the qualified Attorney General Loretta Lynch to fill the seat vacated by the now deceased Justice Antonin Scalia (1936-2016), the Republicans and their empty threats about not voting on his Supreme Court nominee will come back like a lethal boomerang to hit them right in the back of their political heads. Republicans will look like political idiots if they don't approve of Attorney General Lynch, if she's President Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court. Moreover, if they hold up her nomination (assuming she's the nominee) for any reason, just to play political power games, the Grand Old Party can summarily write off every single Black American voter, for now and in the forseeable future. If American Black voters are in lock step against any Republican presidential candidate - and they vote- there's no way the GOP can win the 2016 presidential election.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch
Her appointment for Attorney General was held up by Senate Republicans for an embarassing number of weeks, just because President Barack Obama nominated her to fill the seat vaccated by Eric Holder.

God Bless Attorney General Loretta Lynch! Assuming she's President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee, the Republicans better approve her appoinbment, or face the consequences in the 2016, presidential election.  

Although Republicans are creating political chaos about having another liberal justice appointed to the Supreme Court. Yet, the fact is, the way the GOP presidential candidates blast each other about being liars, while diminishing each others credibility, leads me to believe that none of them will have the chance to make any appointments, except for job interviews, after 2016.
