Matt Margolis points out that after what the left did to Justice Kavanaugh all we owe them absolutely no courtesy whatsoever.
And he’s got a point. Indeed I would extend it to the last 4 years Russia, Russia, Russia.
Of course for all of their protestations about respect, the immediate thought of the Democrats was Democrat party power.
Biden came out of his basement today…. Not even waiting for the body to get cold…. And insisted that we should wait until after the election to appoint a new supreme Court Justice. frankly, I thought the first person that we hear that from would-be Chuckles the clown Schumer. Just a guess, but I’m thinking the chuckles must be having an off-day. He did come out and say exactly the same thing a little bit later on.
However, I can’t help but Wonder if this call for delay of a new appointment doesn’t represent a large, self inflicted bullet hole in the foot of the Democrat party.
One of the things we’ve been hearing from the Democrats these last couple of months has been that there are an awful lot of Republicans who for one reason or another were not going to vote for Trump. but I can’t help but think that this event is going to Galvanize support for Trump amongst people who were on the fence. it’s my guess that the American people are not going to put up with another whack job liberal on the Supreme Court, given the choice. Even the John McCain Mitt Romney Bill Kristol wing of the party isn’t going to stand for that.
Another point, Mitch McConnell has been pumping Trump appointees through the Senate quite quickly of late. 5 in the last 30 hours in fact. It’s my guess he won’t waste much time I’m getting a confirmation hearing going.
A good thing too.
Friend Rick Moore says in part:
Just an FYI in case you’re wondering what the timeline is on replacing Ginsburg – the current Congressional session will expire on January 3, 2021. Any appointments made but not confirmed by then will expire. The president could reappoint when the new Congress convenes but whether that would be successful depends on whether the GOP still controls the Senate and to some extent whether Trump is reelected.
A GOP Senate could still confirm his choice even after he leaves office but the pressure from Dems and the media would be enormous.
However, Mitch McConnell has shown in the past that he really doesn’t care what anybody else thinks and is going to do what he thinks is right no matter what.
And I guarantee you if the parties were reversed Dems would confirm a nominee without even batting an eye.
