    After Mitch |McConnell used the excuse of not choosing a Supreme Court Justice during an election year, now says he would fill one if it became vacant in 2020.  Having not let Obama's choice to fill Scalia's vacant seat, he now shows his true colors. What a weasel!

      That is two-faced of him, absolutely.  If the seat became vacant in January, maybe.  But Garland was nominated by Obama in mid March I think, so after January would be hypocritical IMO.

        Mitch said the conditions would be different. Yeah right! What a toady...

    What? No right wingers are gonna chime in and make excuses for Ole Mitch? He's turned himself upside down and inside out to be purely partisan as far as SCOTUS nominations are concerned. A two-faced scoundrel he is.

    Politicians being partisan and conniving about Supreme Court justices.

    Well, that's quite the shock.

        What I understand is they all never fail to disappoint.

          I'm curious. Putting aside what "all" other politicians do. Taking this decision, on it's own, do you think this is a morally just thing to do on Mitch's part? Should this impact how voters feel about Mitch?

            Certainly it is hypocritical and wrong. But, I think the right is disappointed in kavanaugh and chomping at the bit to pack one more on.

            Wrong. Yes. Different from what his opponents would do? I doubt it.

              I wager we'll see before too long. Trump's tariffs will hurt everyone.

                Not sure what that has to do with the topic but ok.

    Someone has to be the first to lower the bar of reasonable conduct for an elected official.  We've got a lot of that going on lately.  Mitch and Trump, between just the two of them, have sunk so low and dwelt so long in the gutter, the stink will never come off.  And they've dragged a lot of formerly decent people right down with them.  It's scary.

    The stench Hillary left behind might have been bait.

      I though you were of those on the right wanting everyone to "move on." Still after Hillary I see.

      And the stench will be nothing compared to the stain left behind by Donnie and his offspring.

        Hey. I don't think much, if anything, of Trump on a personal level. He seems no less swampy than the rest. But, the economy is good, I just got a promotion double my previous salary, he's trying to address issues I feel need to be addressed (like immigration) so, all in all I've no where near the complaints I can imagine I might have had with the alternative.

        Ok. Maybe one complaint. I doubt previously reasonable people would have been as irrationally unreasonable had the alternative taken office.

          I could have abided any other candidate on the Republican side, but Trump was over the line. I thought Dubya was bad--and he did stay out of sight for Obama's two terms--but now he knows he wasn't such a bad POTUS compared to Trump and is out and about.

            I was shocked Trump got the nomination. There was only one candidate I could stomach. I would have never believed I'd vote for such a man as Trump.

            But the alternative was too much to bear.

                Possibly what was sown grew into something much less ominous and terrifying than what the other seed would have sprouted into. Possibly not, but I wasn't willing to take that chance.

        They just can't leave Hillary alone although she's not the subject of this forum. They always have to use her as a smokescreen to try to cover up the mess they've put in the White House.

          Hillary has been a punching bag for the right for over a decade, Miz. They've always been frightened of her...

          Hillary is not a smoke screen. Hillary was the only alternative we had to vote for in that election. Had Donald not won, Hillary would be president. So, really, his presence in the Oval office boils down to her failures.

            Lol, there you go again. Donnie occupies the White House because of the voters who put him there. First, Republicans thought he was the best candidate on the ballot and chose him as their candidate. Then, a minority of general election voters in key states decided he was qualified and suitable to lead this country, handing him the electoral college.

            Who is responsible for Donnie's presence in the Oval Office?  Those who voted for him.

            After all, that is how elections work.

              Yes. I voted for him. I helped put him into office. I think you've missed the entire point of my comment, which is not surprising.

                PrettyPantherposted 8 months agoin reply to this

                Yes, I get it. It's Hillary's fault  that millions of people thought a lying, bullying con man and self-admitted sexual predator was  acceptable to occupy the oval office.

                Here is a Trump supporter I can respect:

                "Fool me once, sham on you, fool me twice shame on me. That's What I think of Trump."

                "He came through here like the businessman he was and the salesman he was, and he sold us on things he knew wasn't going to make true, and we fell for it."

                No excuses, just taking responsibility.

                  Well, if we are going to lay blame, maybe it needs to go to democrats for offering up such a corrupt candidate.

                  Think about it. She couldn't beat the worst possible candidate the Republican party could put forth.

                  I hope you guys learned your lesson, don't let your primaries be so corrupt and do a better job next time.

                    I'm not "blaming" anyone. I'm just questioning your need to abdicate responsibility for your vote by blaming Hillary and now the Democrats. He was the  Republicans' choice, and still is, judging by his high approval ratings among Republicans.

                    It makes no sense to blame those who didn't vote for Trump for his elevation to the highest office in the land.

    Historians will document that Trump is a corrupt, mentally ill, lying con man and that evidence of those facts was readily available before he was elected by a minority of Americans

      True PP, but just because a small block of gullible racist cultish Americans with the "Sweeping and Systematic" assistance of our arch enemy embedded him in our oval office, that will NEVER exonerate him from his CRIMES and sooner or later he will pay the tremendous political and legal price: He's a short timer and everyone knows it and thank GOD for that:
