Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, on nomination of Merrick Garland: 'As I have repeatedly stated, the election cycle is well under way and the precedent of the Senate is not to confirm a nominee at this stage in the process. I strongly support giving the American people a voice in choosing the next Supreme Court nominee by electing a new president'
White House on Supreme Court nomination: Not appropriate for Senate to use politics as an excuse not to do their job
Fred Lucas @FredLucasWH Josh Earnest: Not aware that age played any role in choice of Garland. Ginsburg was 60 when Clinton nominated her. Lewis Powell was older

But outright denying the whole advise and consent part of the senate's job is the problem people are having. The Republican senate leaders had said they will do NOTHING. If they just went through the process and denied the nomination with a vote it wouldn't be such a big deal.
