Regarding the Nov. 2 news article “Will ‘bull’s-eye’ remark about Clinton hurt Burr?”: Sen. Richard Burr’s stupid and insensitive comment about targeting Hillary Clinton is getting all the headlines, but nobody thinks he was serious.
On the other hand, Burr did not seem to be joking when he vowed to block any Clinton nominee for the Supreme Court over the next four years. Now, that is disgusting.
Grinding our judicial branch to a halt because he doesn’t like the person who our Constitution says gets to make the nomination? Boasting about gumming up the system for four years? Yikes.
Anyone hoping for calmer political waters after Nov. 8 may want to consider not voting for someone so eager to be an obstructionist.
Never miss a local story.
