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.
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.
Thr fact that most republicans don't care how they look right now is the prime reason they need to be voted out.
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
His technicality argument sounds like something a sleazy mob lawyer would come up with. McConnell stole a SC pick because he could and now by his own rule is going to try to steal another. It's banana republic bullshit. A naked power grab. It's sad how many Americans have forgotten that this is not how it's supposed to be.

Why didn’t you post this thread in 2016?
Interesting factoid. Obama did nominate someone to the SCOTUS in 2016. No one stopped him from doing that. Didn't know that, huh?
Merrick Garland
Exactly. Thank you. You lied, Obama made a SCOTUS nomination. You lied and said he wasn't allowed to do that. He was allowed, and he did make a nomination. Please stick to truth and stop lying. Thanks

McConnell is doing exactly what Obama and Biden argued for, fill the seat even in an election year even if only months before the election. What is your gripe with this??

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
So just to be clear. You are claiming that Biden would not have confirmed a pick from a Democrat president. I asked you this before several times and you keep running away and hiding. So answer the question.

Biden meant in 1992 he would NOT have confirmed a Democrat SCOTUS nominee. You actually believe that?

Lets remember when conservative justice Scalia died Obama and the Dems threw a conniption fit when the GOP wouldn't let Obama fill that seat with a liberal. Now they pay the price, we are only doing what Dems advocated so hard should be done, fill the seat. Dems don't have a leg to stand on.

But Democrats aren't like that. You actually believe in 1992 that Biden meant he wouldn't confirm a DEMOCRAT nominee. You're actually claiming that?

Presidential terms are four years. Senate terms are six years. The President has the power to nominate, the Senate has the Constitutional power of "advice and consent." You're arguing banana republics follow their own Constitution, which is a pile of stinking garbage.

I actually don't really have a problem with what Biden said in 1992. I find it hard to believe the parties could agree on a nominee in an election year. But it's your endless overt HYPOCRISY that is a stinking pile of cow manure.

You are EXACTLY the same and would do EXACTLY the same. Get the fake indignation out of here and grow a pair, Petunia

Well, yes. And remember before that they said they were entitled to anyone they wanted when John Paul Stevens died because he was a leftist. They claimed that replacing him with a leftist ideologue was fair to preserve the balance of the court.

Then when the Republicans tried to claim the same with Scalia, Democrats just ignored it and nominated a leftist.

Democrats are just liars

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.


Good riddance to Ginsberg, her and Scalia were only friends because Antonin was always trying to see clear to her side to make sense of her views and try to get her to see the flaws in it. Senator Coons again reiterated this morning on TV that it was Ruth's DYING WISH not to be replaced until after the election showing that politics and not law was EVERYTHING to her! Further emphasized by the fact Coons pointed out she was a tireless advocate for gender equity!

Nothing wrong with that, that's fine, great, but not as a Supreme Court Justice. Her job as a justice was to APPLY the law as written, not to try to interpret it. Ruth was after social engineering, and her obsession with gender as well as her hateful comments about Trump a few years ago show that she should have stepped down years ago or been removed, the court will be far better off without her always adding HER slant to the law.

BTW, it was also pointed out that Jimmy Carter appointed Breyer to his original position AFTER he had lost the election to Reagan and was a lame duck! Trump's still got another term and another four years to go.

Bingo, in our shoes Democrats would do exactly the same damn thing without a moments hesitation.
And we have actual proof of what the Democrats would do:

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

There is zero we would get from giving them their way

Dem's never reciprocate, something many gutless bunch of GOP hacks can't get through their thick skulls. Democrats are dishonest to the core. We broker a deal and Dems have every intention of breaking it the first chance they get. How do you even work with a party that's so dishonest?

MA Dems changed a state law to get rid of Scott Brown, then changed it right back after the Dem won. This is what I'm saying, Dems are dishonest. They plot and scheme and rig because they can't win otherwise.

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:
Don't try to make the democrats in the wrong here. McConnell did this shit with an amoral kind of ruthlessness that is an affront to everything this country was founded on. It was done right in front of our faces. No need for justification anymore.

Republicans are like Charlie Brown and the Democrats are Lucy pulling the football away every time.

When Democrats invented filibustering judicial nominees and administration appointments under W, dumb fuck Republicans were like we'll want that! We'll want that! Lots of us were like, dumb asses, they will CHANGE THE RULES. But they didn't listen. And under Obama, Democrats CHANGED THE RULES just like we said to stop it.

All that happened in the end was Democrats got filibustering judges and administration appointments under W. Republicans got nothing.

When John Paul Stevens died, Democrats said they get any hard core leftist they want to "preserve the balance." They got what they wanted. When Scalia died and Republicans reminded them of that, Democrats yawned and gave us hard left Garland.

That is how ALL deals with Democrats end up. Caving here will give Republicans absolutely nothing. If they could just not be so stupid for once.

Democrats have no honor. They would do the same thing and constantly change the rules to their favor. Stop being such a dickless whiner
