At Saturday night’s GOP Presidential  debates, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said that Republicans need to take a more aggressive stance in getting conservatives nominated to the Supreme Court and “fight and fight and fight” to get them though the nominating process.

Saying that he’s an “article two guy” who believes in a strong executive branch, Bush said he believes President Obama should nominate a “consensus” replacement for Supreme Court Justin Anton Scalia.

Bush said that Scalia’s replacement should be a “lover of liberty” who “believes in limited government” in the tradition of Scalia.
