    No need to rush a SC pick in. Let the people decide on election day.

        No, the Republicans set precedent that we wait to confirm judges if one is to pass during an election year. Trump only gets to pick if he is re-elected.

        Of course the Republicans are confident that Trump will get re-elected. So why rush?

          What part of historical precedent are you citing? If you are honest with yourself, you know that historically, Senate's that differ in party from the President, rarely appoint a justice during an election. And overwhelmingly do appoint them when they are of the same party. Them's are just the facts. Mcconnell's reasoning behind why they did it are immaterial. The fact is, elections have consequences. ANd if Obama had the senate in 2015, he would have gotten his judge. And if the Dems had the senate right now, trump would not get his judge.

            Dynazi. On some level, you have to recognize that political fuckery on one side will beget political fuckery on the other side. McConnell is playing hardball. Expect the same in return.

                You think modern fuckery began in 2007? With Harry Reid? That’s adorable. Wrong. But adorable.

                    I think my attention to modern day fcukery, where rules were changed for political expedience, began with Reid. But i guess you could argue over what defines "Modern." And in that case, I'll let you define what modern is...and then we can play on the same field.

                          Who started the Lets Block Obama at every turn the day after he was sworn in in 2009? So the fuckery started when you fucks couldn't accept a black president. McConnell started to fuck with senate judicial appointments in 2010. Reid had no option but to end the 60 vote threshold to confirm judges and bring us to the current situation today.

                              Remember when "you guys" couldn't stand a black Supreme Court Justice? Or Robert Bork?

                              New York Times columnist Joe Nocera claimed that "[t]he Bork fight, in some ways, was the beginning of the end of civil discourse in politics...The anger between Democrats and Republicans, the unwillingness to work together, the profound mistrust—the line from Bork to today's ugly politics is a straight one." Nocera cited Democratic activist Ann Lewis, who wrote that if Bork's nomination "were carried out as an internal Senate debate, we would have deep and thoughtful discussions about the Constitution, and then we would lose.

                              So should we start in 1987 then?
