Sen. Marco Rubio wrote a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on the postponement of the election in Haiti, saying, “The postponement had less to do with the electoral process than it did with the losing candidates manufacturing a crisis in order to achieve a ‘do-over’ with the hope of a different result. This would set a terrible precedent for Haiti if allowed to succeed.”
I believe his statement also holds true for Congress’ inaction on voting on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee. Why should we hold other countries’ governments to a higher standard than we do our own?
