We all know that Republicans have no higher ideology than naked power grabs.

Maybe this show that to other people

I think you start by making sure they haven't scrubbed you from the voting roll.

Then the same for friends and family.

I just can't believe all these republicans are going back on their word about what they said the rules were for nominating a Supreme Court justice during an election year.

I mean, really, this is totally unexpected and out of character for republicans.

If he votes for this, it makes his chances at re-election so much more challenging. He has to be sweating this one. His hopes are that the vote takes place after the election. But looking today again, at Virginia's lines, they are in trouble.

He just said so.
In light of these two events, I will support President @realDonaldTrump
in any effort to move forward regarding the recent vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ginsburg.


Fark him and fark all Republicans.

Yup.  The voters of SC will surely punish him for installing the judge that overturns Roe v Wade

We all know that one of Trump's picks for the Supreme Court wants to kill unarmed civilians in the streets.

Win in 2020. Nuclear option. Pack SCOTUS. Make Puerto Rico and DC the 51st and 52nd states for 4 more Senators. Arrest Trump and Barr. Man the f*cking hatches and go to war. Fight fire with fire.

I think they know they are going to lose, which is why they will gladly take this seat.  They do so without hesitation because they know Democrats may talk a big game but are not really going to take any of the same sort of power grab moves we see from McConnell.

I'm sure McConnel is figuring out The minimum it will take to get collins' vote.

Maybe a new mcdonalds in one of the portland suburbs? She can run on new jobs!

He said all those promises no longer count because of Kavanaugh..

You remember how Dems blocked Kavanaugh being nominated right?

They really are too farking re...publican to realize what a political opportunity this is for them.  By leaving the seat open they can change the narrative between now and the election at literally no cost.  They control the Supreme Court more tightly now than they did yesterday because Roberts has been neutralized as a swing vote.  If they lose the election they can ram an appointment through during their lame duck session.  If the election looks likely to head to the Supreme Court they can appoint a Trump sycophant after the election but before it gets there.

There is no reason to fill the vacancy before the election.

Senator Lindsey Graham's statement on how the Senate should handle the 2020 Supreme Court vacancy
Youtube QGerk0XRvLc


Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham once dared Americans to "use my words against me" during March 2016 remarks in which he declared the next president-regardless of party-would not fill a Supreme Court vacancy during the final year of their first term.

I remember some concerns being aired about overwhelming evidence he's a sexual predator with serious drinking and gambling problems that have clouded his judgment and led to him being owned by an unknown entity. Is that what you mean?

Elections have consequences.

Sometimes the consequences are dire, life-changing, world-altering.

We're a democracy who's citizenry collectively fail even the most basic civic expectations.
Selfish, greedy, ignorant.

No regard to responsibly managing our society; no care of leaving a future for those who come after.

Happy to vote for theives and liars as long as their personal ROI tiks up a notch. Or their pet peeve crusade is backed.

We deserve this.

Now, VOTE in Nov.
And if you KEEP VOTING, maybe, maybe, we can unfark this in a decade or two.

/or you can stay home like you always do

Yeah I have been think that too.

It probably wold be best politically for Trump to leave it open.

It would get people more urgency for republicans to support him and Trump could give a "See I am not a partisan, I am an outsider" that made him popular to independents in the first place.

He was lying then, too.

I mean, what are we going to do?  Roughly 98% of the country has absolutely no recourse for anything Graham does or doesn't do.   He can lie his ass off right into our faces and we can't do a damn thing.

Is there any journalist who will ask Trump questions about Merrick Garland? Why should Trump's pick get a vote when Obama's pick didn't get a hearing?

Even asking Trump who Merrick Garland is, is a harder question the the overwhelming majority of questions they've asked Republicans in four years.
 
2020-09-19 2:52:40 PM  
You know that statement seems like there's a second part like a: ,but we'll just have to see how it goes.

This last power grab of stacking the Court with Yet gain another reactionary has already boosted contributions to the Dem a huge amount. They ram this through and the GOP will loose power, hopefully for good.

We have regressed under Reagan's Republican revolution to the point where we're almost a Fascist dictatorship, and certainly willing to break bread with every other Fascist dictatorship out there. All while wiping our asses with our closest allies. All this talk about how Great America is and we're just a schitassed country sullying those who we used to call friends while "servicing" those we used to call enemies, LIKE PUTIN
Wake up sheeple.

2020-09-19 2:54:26 PM  
I presume Graham will spend the rest of this year, like many Republicans, ducking cameras.  There's no way he's going to publicly acknowledge he ever said this.  He has absolutely nothing to gain from addressing it.

The obvious bullshiat will be,
"Trump may only be halfway through his Presidency in this election year. Obama was a lame duck by term limits"
Why ask ppl questions you know they won't answer with any integrity?

What in the stupid shiat are you talking about? If he votes against Trump on this, his political career is over. Same for any other Republican. Is they stand on principle, they will pay.
