You guys are thinking about this all wrong. I mean, there WILL be some good things that come out of this.

For example, Ivanka will look simply STUNNING in all black.

A frustrating reminder of McConnell’s stolen seat.

From McConnell himself:
Quote
“The Senate stands ready to fulfill its constitutional role by offering advice and consent on President Trump’s nominee to fill this vacancy,” Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, said after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement. “We will vote to confirm Justice Kennedy’s successor this fall.”

From McConnell in 2016:
Quote
"One of my proudest moments was when I told Obama, 'You will not fill this Supreme Court vacancy,"

It's like you can't make this stuff up. Republicans who voted for Trump over Hillary - we know who you are - got exactly what they wanted. It's amazing a president can can lose the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, yet have so much impact on the next generation. And we are only 1 1/2 years in. Hang in there Ruth, we need you!

Were you so upset when Schumer and Biden delayed judicial appointments when Bush was president?

LOL leftists cannot adjust to the fact that they don't have decades long control of congress any longer, and that half the country vehemently disagrees with their world view.

If there was half the concern for the judicial branch imagining rights for mentally ill and perverted men who pretend to be women, robbing Americans of their 2nd amendment right, or forcing people at the point of a gun to buy health insurance or bake cakes for homosexual weddings, we wouldn't be having this conversation. Most of you have zero concern for individual rights. You want a congress and judicial branch that codifies your infringements on freedom.

Sorry, as our former president said just a few years ago, "elections have consequences". And America elected MAGA as president and republicans in charge of both houses of congress. To act as though Obama and Schumer wouldn't do the same thing if they were in charge is a joke and a lie.

Keep talking up impeachment. It makes Trump stronger by the day.

This surprises you? Remember how Hatch choose to ignore his previous statements that Garland was a great candidate that Obama will unfortunately never nominate? These people have no shame.

I agree. That's precisely why we should wait until the midterms with this, right?

Not comparable. At all.
The Republican Party values party over country.
They have proven their moral bankruptcy over and over again.
They have thrown their core convictions out the window in persuit of power.
They are criminal.
And their Dear Leader will soon be proven so.

Economy is good, most Americans support stronger borders, be careful for what you wish for...  The thing is there are a lot of indicators that the Republicans may do more than ok, in the midterms.

But that Republicans are even discussing the prospect of gaining Senate seats, in the first midterm campaign of a president whose approval rating has never reached 50 percent, illustrates the wildly divergent electoral landscapes for the House and the Senate.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/02/us/politics/senate-republicans-midterms.html

I actually thought Trump could win the presidency.   I think the resistance may fail as well and is not a lock.   You see, I used to watch a lot of CNN and MSNBC and they always made it look better than what is was in terms of elections.   We seen this with quite a few president candidates like Gore, Kerry and as of late Hillary.   I would not trust them as far as I could spit.   I also do not trust Fox.

I think Pres. Trump will select Andrew Napolitano.

Personally, I think a lot of the lower level judges are activists at this point.   I like having some checks and balances.

I think it is fair to wait until the mid-terms though.   What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

So how much worse can it get? They already nixed the judicial appointment filibuster in Senate.

Hated Trump but a big part of why I voted for him was I knew this president would have 1-3 Supreme Court picks.

Big part of why a lot of conservatives had to grin as bear it and vote for that ****.

Agreed, regardless of what the “****” was.

No cussing, though.

I don’t think so. I think he’ll select somebody qualified.

Putting all the civil rights issues aside for a moment, what the GOP has done in the past 2 years with the Supreme Court is a completely unprecedented party-first power play. There is nothing remotely similar to:

1) Refusing to vote on a nomination for 10 months.. and the appointee was a left-CENTRIST (leave it to liberals to compromise upfront and get screwed).

2) Make rule changes specifically so they could force through subsequent appointees without a filibuster and unbalance the court as much as possible as quickly as possible.

The GOP is not playing at democracy, they are running a slow moving coup to install a conservative America, and fueling it on the backs of culture war.
