I'm torn over the replacing of Ms Ginsberg before the end of the year. On one hand, it would insure a conservative justice replacing her.
On the other hand, it would give the left a lot of negative ammunition to go after Trump for trying to replace her after what McConnell did in 2016.
Trump doesn't need the extra distraction during the campaigning, along with the msm going after him relentlessly for trying.
If he was upfront and saying that he's going to hold off, it could give him some positive momentum in the eyes of the voters in the swing states.
What say you?
You guys used to think Roberts was a conservative...now you think he is a moderate. If the blob appointee isn't in lockstep with the cause du jour, you guys will claim this justice is liberal as well. So there is no insurance.

Its a hard choice the blob faces....
If you put Judge Judy out (just to pick a name) now and the justice isn't seated before election day, the DEMS have an issue to "re take the senate" because there is a clear cause and effect; You give the DEMS a majority and Judge Judy may not be seated. Its BS but there are no shortage of people who believe campaign promises. Some actually believed and still believe Mexico is paying for the wall that isn't being built.

Also...no small consequence...Democrats who aren't crazy about Biden/Harris or Harris/Biden may be crazy about blocking Judge Judy and go to the polls in higher turnout than there would be otherwise. Meaning that if you get 10-15 more DEMS going to the polls in each precinct...that is like a million more votes for the Democrats (there are over 100,000 voting districts/precincts across the nation). Electorally it won't matter except in the swing states but do you really want to stoke the fires in those 8,000 to 10,000 precincts across WI, MI, PA, VA, FL, MN, AZ?

So if I were the blob....
I would make a pact with McConnell and say if I name someone before the election, can you guarantee me a confirmation before the election. If not, perhaps wait until after the election to name someone and have it done in a lame-duck session. The DEM turnout is going to be higher regardless but if Judge Judy has a terrible record from the standpoint of Democrats...you'll get a greater turnout. If Judge Judy is a moderate...you'll get less turnout. Also, if it's a done deal...it removes the motivation for those fence sitting democrats to go to the polls since the justice is seated.

Will the Senate go for it....
Who knows. A lot of the senators are up for re-election as well. If they are facing a difficult re-election bid...they may want to play the innocent victim and not come down on one side or the other. Susan Collins is probably the most affected by all of this since it brings into sharp-focus how disgustingly silly Trump has made her look.

It’s not a option we need her seat filled, it could be a constitutional crisis if it’s not filled.. I would hold hearings ASAP
Oh? Why would there be a Constitutional crisis?
Democrats plan to challenge the 2020 election, and having a 4-4 court would “risk a constitutional crisis” given that likelihood.
Democrats don't plan to challenge anything, except Trump abuse of power and cheating.

If Trump doesn't try to pull a fast one, the winner will be who all the citizens voted for, on their ballot...

The supreme court is not suppose to decide any election.... if there are problems, the it is Congress who decides, according to the Constitution, not the Court.
So if trump declared winner night of the election democrats will concede?
Will Trump concede if Biden wins?
He probably would under normal circumstances. But with all this mail-in BS, he might not concede at first until every vote is properly counted.
Trump refused to say he would concede in 2016 either.
Who cares? All Democrat Politicos suck.

The numbers are nearing magic in 13 battleground states. But . . . the election is more than forty days away and Trump may raise someone from the dead.

Biden will have no trouble with Trump in the debates.
HA HA HA.

Trump is ahead of Biden in battleground states 49 to 41.
How come? Look at the huge CROWDS Biden is drawing! (snicker)

I don't think the decision to nominate a replacement justice is going to hurt Trump any, and whether the Senate confirms that person really isn't his responsibility. Where I think it falls more heavily is on the GOP senators who are running for re-election and are in tight races. They would be put into the difficult position of saying one way or the other how they would vote to confirm, and either way that position could hurt their candidacy. It's going to be a purely political decision, weighing the what happens if I do this vs what happens if I do that. I suspect everybody is ging to be doing a lot of polling and surveys over the next couple of weeks to see which way the wind is blowing.


" And people wonder how old uncle Oddball became such a hardened cynic. "

I thought you were born that way. :eek:
Excellent thoughts.

I heard that Murkoski has already stated she would not vote for it, RINO Romney hates Trump.
Murkowski will vote in the end.

So will Collins.

Hopefully Mitt has his BBQ blow up and he can spend time watching the proceedings with Ginsburg from somewhere in hell.

Why is this a question ?

Of course they should proceed.

Now Eric Holder supports expanding the court if this happens.

That bastard needs to face a 10 gun firing squad.

Shut up, Bob; Holder is a patriot while you are a Trumpbumplican.

The finesse is going to be to do it before or after the election; and no one can really guess the fall out from either choice.
