So, Tom Cotton or Ted Cruz?

Ehh...this won't be popular, but oh well.

Just because Mitch McConnell was an unscrupulous asshole last time around doesn't mean that Trump should abdicate his responsibility to nominate a Supreme Court justice.

RBG's words were that she didn't want a replacement until a new president was installed. Assume Trump wins. Does that mean Trump is supposed to wait & leave the Supreme Court at a 4-4 stalemate?

It may not popular, but Trump still has a responsibility regardless of what McConnell's ethics might be.

No, just until after the election. If f*ckface wins, he can pick whatever Nazi his little hands desire.

Go ahead. Piss off every pacifist, hippie, leftarto, greenie, Libby, peacenick out there.

Hold move.

You will perish poor.
Perhaps in prison.
But poor.

Dying poor in America is no way to end your life.

Ok, well, if you're a Trump, actually it is.

I get where you're coming from. It's just hard to talk about the responsibilities of a man who would have resigned years ago and committed seppuku immediately thereafter if he had a shred of an idea about what responsibility is.

This could backfire on the Republicans.  If they finally give the Evangelicals the court, the Evangelicals may see Trump's use to them to finally be done, and no need to continue overlooking his faults.

We lived with an 8 member court for almost a year during an election year and the Republicans were fine with that. In fact they were more than fine with that, they caused it. Stop parroting bullshiat talking points.

RGB could have ensured she had a worthy successor if she had stepped down at the young age of 79 when there was a Democrat President and a Democrat Senate super majority. She choose not to and she risked... this.

Now we all suffer for that decision.

Damn right. We wouldn't want a president who doesn't take his responsibilities seriously.

One key thing missing from the article....
Not only are Democrats saying to wait until a new president is elected, but back in 2016 the Republicans were saying the same thing.

Odd how that stance has now changed. 😑

So you're gonna compare McConnell's 11-month stonewalling of Merrick Garland to this?

Evangelicals excuse their vote for Trump with judges for the same reason faux Libertarians excuse their votes for Trump with the economy. That reason being they are both Nazis trying to present an acceptable face for their desire to crush Americans under their boots. The fact that those public reasons may collapse or stop making sense will not change their vote.

Liberals would probably not vote for the nomination and just wait for Biden to get elected, then he would probably nominate the same person.

History supports Republicans filling the seat. Doing so would not be in any way inconsistent with Senate Republicans' holding open the seat vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016.

The reason is simple, and was explained by Mitch McConnell at the time. Historically, throughout American history, when their party controls the Senate, presidents get to fill Supreme Court vacancies at any time - even in a presidential election year, even in a lame-duck session after the election, even after defeat. Historically, when the opposite party controls the Senate, the Senate gets to block Supreme Court nominees sent up in a presidential election year, and hold the seat open for the winner.

Both of those precedents are settled by experience as old as the republic.

I don't think they will ultimately get what they thought they would get out of Gorsuch. He is a piece of shiat libertarian and dissented on the Louisiana abortion law case, But he has also made statements about roe v. wade not being in question. His dissent in the Louisiana case was much more procedural than pro life.


This is what I keep telling myself....

optikeye: Straight Outta Wells Branch: Does that mean Trump is supposed to wait & leave the Supreme Court at a 4-4 stalemate?

That's the crux of the argument. It's why this will never go over well with most of the country, no matter what the hell their excuses are.

They failed to nominate a SC Justice in 2016, 9 months before the elections, because they felt that choosing so during an election year was wrong.

Now they'll try to rush in a new SC Justice less than 90 days from the elections, because what happened 4 years ago would've worked against them, and now they don't care anymore.

If Garland had been sworn in and they didn't flaunt their bullshiat reasons for their actions 4 years ago, no one would give a shiat about what's going on. We'd hate that RBG is being replaced likely by the antithesis of her, but we'd have no reason to argue against it.

Now it's going to cause an epic political shiatstorm less than a month before elections, because they believe that political ruin is worth it if the SC is skewed in favor of the racist, bigoted, evangelical minority for the next generation. I think pretty much every GOP member understands that their political careers are much deeper in jeopardy if they make this decision, it's just a matter of how many are ready to sacrifice their careers for the SC.
