He has the right to put it off, but will not. Would you? Hell, would I? No. Mitch sucks, but he would be proud to go back home or become minority leader, knowing he put the deciding right wing vote on the Supreme Court for the next 15 - 20 years. You or I would also, if in his shoes. He sucked for what he did on the Obama nomination, but yes he will suck for what he is about to do on this one also.Are you claiming McConnell doesn’t have the right to pause the confirmation and vote on a SCOTUS nomination?Voters will look at it as a complete betrayal by MCConnell, who said 10 months before election is too close before an election to make such a decision. They will take it out on Senate Republicans and on trump.Who?This will motivate every voter to get out and vote. Suspect they will have control of Supreme Court, but not likely to win the Presidency or keep the Senate.He really has no choice politically. If he doesn't put a butt in that seat, the Democrats probably take the Senate because clearly that is the prize. They may take it anyway but instead of academic ideas about what a Democratic Controlled Senate would do...it would be you elect this...you get that or you get 4 years of "no" if the blob wins. The hypocrisy may cost R's the senate but he'll keep his seat. He may lose that if he were to not be a hypocrite.
McConnell: Trump's Supreme Court nominee 'will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate'Senate Republicans have signaled that they would likely fill a vacancy to the Supreme Court ahead of the presidential election, but it is unclear whether the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will change their stance.www.foxnews.com
This is going to start a whole new round of crazy!
What if Trump says "let's wait until after the election"? That is going to ensure they ALL vote. Even the RINOS will be cornered.
If Trump does it before, he chooses a woman and gains more female votes. He's in a win/win situation.
