Sorry, I'm a simple man. I expect a man to keep his word. I don't expect much out of our worthless politicians... but at a minimum I expect them to keep their word. My point is, if they continue with this, the Republicans will lose big in the coming election. You are just gifting Democrats with a MAJOR talking point. And mark my word, if the Democrats gain control because of this, this new Justice's voice will be muted because we will see more than 9 Supreme Court Justices in the future.
It is setting up just as I suspected, the Demonrats are screaming we should wait till after the election using the same argument we made with Oblunders supreme choice. You can make all the arguments you want about fair play and payback being a bitch all you want, but does anyone not think that if the Demonrats were in the same position they wouldn't shove it up our collective asses with a grin? Remember Oblunder care anyone? They wouldn't hesitate and everyone knows it.
I say nominate and get it done. There is a fight coming one way or the other, might as well get the ducks in a row before the shooting starts.
That perfect storm? Got a little more perfect yesterday.

I'm too complex a person to fit any label. I voted for Trump. I likewise voted for Reagan & was proud he was my Commander in Chief. I think the Constitution is the best document ever written by man. I believe we should have a balanced budget. I believe the 2nd Amendment guarantees us the right to have as many damn guns as we wish. I believe in personal freedom & personal responsibility. I believe in the smallest federal government possible. I believe the people have a right & a responsibility to protest their government. I believe the people have a right to protect their property from demonstrators that wish to do harm or damage. I am a Christian that believes I'm not equipped to judge other's sin but am equipped to love all... regardless of race, sexual preference or whatever. I could care less who someone loves because it is none of my business what someone else does in their private life. I believe someone should be a positive in the world... make the world better not worse. I believe a man's word is his bond.
I could go on & on. So you just go on and group people into whatever groups you want. The only labels that mean anything to me are Christian, Husband, Father & American.
The current situation is not like Obama with the Garland nomination in 2016. That was a GOP Senate and Commie POTUS ending his second term. We currently have a GOP Senate and a GOPish POTUS finishing his first term. Also consider that Trump is in office until 1/20/21 regardless with the same Senate, so "waiting until after the election" is only politics.
FUBAR isn't it?
Twit's selling point in Utah is he's Mormon, he's sure not conservative. He's left of what used to be a Democrat.
John Boner and Paul RyNO were TERRIBLE US house speakers. Well who supported them.....? Not only with votes to be elected, but to become speakers!
The damm RyNO stifled everything that could have been accomplished when there was control of BOTH houses.
