On top of that, we have had 3 confirmations after the sitting President lost the election.


So all the bedwetting by Dimwingers in Congress, and on this board, is nothing more than a diversion from reality. Suck it up Buttercups, Trump is appointing a replacement for Ginsberg.


Sen. Ted Cruz: After Ginsburg -- 3 reasons why Senate must confirm her successor before Election Day


Second, twenty-nine times in our nation’s history we’ve seen a Supreme Court vacancy in an election year or before an inauguration and in every instance, the president proceeded with a nomination.

Nine presidents, including George Washington, Woodrow Wilson, William Taft, and Herbert Hoover, faced with whether to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in an election year, did so before Election Day when their party held the majority in the Senate.

And on nineteen different occasions up to 1968, the president sought to fill a Supreme Court vacancy while his own party controlled the Senate. Nine out of the ten nominations made before Election Day were successfully confirmed, while eight out of the nine nominations made after Election Day were also successfully confirmed.

Three presidents, who had already lost the presidential election, have filled lame-duck Supreme Court vacancies.

Since McConnell pulled his shit in 2016 it's a brand new game. This is what happens when republicans make the government work in new and interesting ways for partisan gain.
Obama and Biden convinced McConnell he made an error in 2016 so McConnel will take their advice and fill the seat now, okay?

Look who's talking, DEMOCRATS asked Ginsburg to resign in an effort to RIG the seat e.g. let Obama fill it with a younger liberal while he had the votes to cram it through. YOU PEOPLE are in no position to preach to us so STFU.

Pulled what shit? He did his job then. The question is, will he do his job now?

Thr fact that most republicans don't care how they look right now is the prime reason they need to be voted out.

More of your propaganda. How stupid do you think people are?

Democrats created the judicial filibuster under W
Democrats created the administration filibuster under W
Democrats ended the judicial filibuster under Obama
Democrats ended the administration filibuster under Obama
Democrats slow walked EVERY Trump nomination to the judiciary
Democrats slow walked EVERY Trump nomination to his administration
Democrats changed the rules to get Obamacare when Scott Brown ended their filibuster proof majority
Democrats already said they will stack the court when they get the Senate and Presidency
Democrats already said they will end the filibuster to get the green new deal and their Marxist agenda through.

But now you're like, OMG, Republicans will pay! We'll start playing hardball! That horse is way, way out of the barn. Save your empty threats

You're the one who's being totally fake. You know McConnell, like Biden in 92, was referring to when the presidency and senate were in different hands.

Stop the lies, it's tired

Interesting factoid. Obama did nominate someone to the SCOTUS in 2016. No one stopped him from doing that. Didn't know that, huh?

Ginsberg just died, you stupid troll.
Scalia died in 2016
McConnell refused to fill the seat in an election year.

Why didn’t you remind him then?

That wasn't unprecedented either, troll.

Go get educated on the subject so you don't continue to humiliate yourself with your ignorant trolling.

McConnel didn't pull anything, dumbass. There is nothing in the US constitution that says the Senate has to do the opposition party's bidding.

When did either one of them say......when the Senate is in different hands?

Both said the voters should decide who makes the pick
Neither said anything about depending on who holds the Senate

Now wait, you claimed that Obama was blocked from nominating a SCOTUS pick, which was a lie. He made one.

Now you're saying though the Senate loses their power for advice and consent in an election year? Explain how that happened. I don't see that in the Constitution

You are deflecting. FACT: Dems have repeatedly flipped flopped when it suited them and attempted to RIG the SCOTUS. Now you pay the price. Obama and Biden argued vacant seats should be filled even in an election year even if there are only months until the election. Now you are screwed.

I love it when the Dem's scheming blows up in their face. :auiqs.jpg:
