Sure. but denying McConnell and the gop are not being hypocritical and having two standards is ….. at best not being truthful.But did McConnell's treatment of Judge Garland bother you too? Obama nominated Garland explicitly because he was pro 2nd Amendment to appeal to the gop. He was also pro-Roe and he was not in favor of Citizens United.I was convinced we needed a calming choice that everyone can accept, but I have been chewing this thing like over-smoke beef jerkey since last night and I have changed my mind for the following reasons:
1) Amy Coney Barrett deserves her seat on the court as a very accomplished new American woman who balances career and family life (7 kids) and still is one of the top minds in her profession. She is also a Constitutional Original intent judge, the kind we really need to reign in all the bullshit case law we have h ad recently (United....) A woman a deserving as her should not be passed over for reasons based on political gamesmanship.
2) Realpolitical logic told me that picking a 'conservative' jurist to fill RBGs seat would inflame the left and drive them to the polls. But the left is already hysterical and hates everything Trump does, no matter what he does. Trump could pick Jesus Christ and the left would go ape shit batcrazy. So why bother? Just bolster your base and pick what they want, there is really no downside.
3) I reflected on how the Democrats treated Bret Kavanaugh and it still pisses me off.
Nail 'em Mr President.
Nail them to the wall, set them on fire and use them for target practice.
Fuck the Democrats all to Hell.
No. It was a beautiful example of how the Founders set this country up. It was set up to be an adversarial system. The Founders realized that if the system wasn't then the politicians would more easily work together to take power and Rights away from the people.
They AREN'T being hypocritical. They are merely following historical precedent, and of course, the biden rule.
