No, you don't know d*ck about history.

Usuaully (and particularly in the 20th Century after Teddy Roosevelt) the President acts the leader of their political party. 

It's safe to say that during the 20th Century, most Presidents spoke for their party. 

In 1935 when FDR threatend to pack the Court, FDR's Democrats had super majorities in both the House and the Senate. 

So FDR's threat to pack the Court was not some idle threat.  It was the expressed wishes of the Executive Branch and both Houses of the Legislative Branch.  Can't believe I have to explain this to you.

And (here's the part you don't understand) it was Constitutional.  In 1935 the Dems in Congress could have created 30 or 50 Supreme Court vacancies and FDR could have filled every single one of them.  And that would have been Constitutional despite your ignorance of the US Constitution.

Seriously, you have no idea what your talking about here. SMH.
