It isn't wrong. It is the job of the president to nominate the next Chief Justice. He's going to do so. It is the job of the Senate Judicial Committee to vote on accepting him/her. It id the job for the Senate to vote on the nominee. That will be done.Would you celebrate and approve of Obama and Schumer the way you celebrate and approve of the Trump/McConnell move?Obama and Schumer would push through a replacement,so should Trump and Mitch.The majority leader.Nothing in the constitution mentions hearings or any process. The majority party of the Senate simply decided in private not to approve Obama’s nominee.The constitution dictates the senate advise and consent. Moscow Mitch would not allow the senate to do just that. Moscow Mitch blatantly pulled a power grab by plaint himself n the role of the United States senate. He is one of my ne hundred.How is it a power grab to do exactly what the Constitution dictates you do?Blame Moscow Mitch for his slimy power grab!Are you contending Obama didnt do the same thing with Garland?The Democrat response should be fight fire with fire.Agreed, we need to put a new Supreme Court Justice on the vacant bench as soon as possible. The troubling thing is the left's response to the possibility of a Trump nominated candidate. Their response: War....burn it all down....lay siege to Congress. Time to bring in a large organization that swore and oath to support and defend the U. S. Constitution, the military. Place them in large metropolitan areas and have the federal government do what they did with the state police in Oregon; federally deputize them and also put them into the large metropolitan areas. If anyone starts acting non-peacefully, grab them up, toss them into federal custody and keep them there, while preparing for "sedition" trials.
This nation has, through many generations, prided itself on its ability to not only have civil dialogue, but also a peaceful transition of power. However, thanks to the left's behavior through these last three and a half years, a peaceful transition would be an insult to every armed service member that fought and died against Marxism in Korea and Vietnam.
If a blatant power grab 6 weeks from the election is the Trumpian game, let President Biden appoint three more justices.
The constitution doesn’t say anything about how many justices may sit on the SCOTUS.
I find it amazing you don't see the hypocrisy here! If the shoe was on the other foot, you'd be making the same argument I am because, deep down I think you care for fair play and the American way. It's the dark hex cast over your morals by despicable characters like Trump. Personality cults do that.
Or is your rationale two wrongs make a right?
