I probably would have been "ok" if Republicans had held a hearing and voted him down, because at least then Republicans would have followed the normal confirmation process. What happened smacked of Republicans changing the normal process/rules to get away with not allowing President Obama to replace that particular Justice (Scalia) because they knew that it would tilt the ideological balance of the Court away from right-wing dominance. It *might* have been a different story had it been Ginsburg or Breyer resigning (but then they might have still done it to directly seize a liberal seat too, so......?)

At any rate, Republicans suck and they cheated us here.
