I wish hypocrisy was the only issue we had to deal with in our government. Besides. I think Ginsberg is too determined to stay put, at least until the election. She hopes a Democrat or a Sanders win will put another leftie on the court. She’ll hold out that long…
I can see her refusing to retire until after the election. Hopefully she retires to live a few years in comfort, anyway. But if something were to happen before now and the election, or even worse after an election where Trump loses but before January, then the Republicans would be very tempted to do something that it is hard to think up a justification for…but I’m sure someone would.
They both require clear thinking, no?
Fine, if you disagree with me and do not hope she has a few years of comfort after she retires, that is your choice. Her health issues have been in the media for the last few years, however. She clearly does not have the vigor of a …70 year old.
Yes he will be mother of all hypocrites but so what. The democrats would do it. Oh wait you think we should be better then them. I disagree. It’s that weakness is reason why they’re allowed to get away with so much.
Over my lifetime I’ve observed democrats prey on good men…that needs to change.
All I said is that McConnell should simply have said the truth. Block the nomination, but be forthright about why.
Hardly the first time the Senate would have done something like this. When John Quincy Adams tried to fill a Supreme Court vacancy near the end of his term, the Jacksonian Democrats, who controlled the Senate at that time, passed a resolution stating it is not expedient to fill the vacancy at this time. They basically said they were holding it for Jackson.
McConnell should have been equally forthright about his behavior.
Had he been, he wouldn’t be in the potential hypocrisy cross-hairs now.
