I’m not unhappy at all that the Republicans nuked the rest of the filibuster.
There is simply NO conservative judge that the Democrats would allow. Also, the filibuster is merely a Convention of the modern Senate. It is not in the Constitution at all. Harry Reid destroyed most of it, anyway. It was only a whipping stick for the Democrats. When it cut against them, they were happy to get rid of it. They only liked it when it worked to their benefit.
So good riddance, filibuster. And you can thank your local Democrat for that.
riff on Rush Limbaugh, that if Democrats are willing to filibuster Goresuch, they would filibuster anyone. It can be a moderate” or a fire-breathing Conservative. It really doesn’t matter, anyone that Trump nominates the Democrats will oppose. Any Conservative at all.
I guess he could re-nominate Merrick “the elephant man” Garland, but there’s no rational reason to think he actually would. Even in that fantasy case, I bet you would get a couple Democrats who would vote against him just because Trump nominated him!
No, there’s no appeasing this irrational crowd. So you might as well push the sword in to the hilt. You might as well take it to the limit, because the Democrat response will be exactly the same whether you nominate the Easter Bunny or Satan himself. And there simply is no reason or rationality to their arguments.
The sooner Trump really understands this, the better. And I’m willing to bet that the whole Goresuch circus has made the scales fall from his eyes. I sure hope so.
I think it’s abundantly clear that the Democrats are NOT acting in good faith, here.
have ever struck me as more true:
(Oh, and Powerline’s “”The Week In Pictures” is the source, and a great one.) Getting rid of Obamacare is HARD. It was meant to be that way. It was designed to be that way. This hook has a barb in it, and it will be painful to get it out. I think George Washington or Thomas Jeffeson said that slavery was like having a wolf by the ears–you don’t want to hang on, but then again you don’t dare let go.
Well, Obamacare is just like that. It is having a wolf by the ears. There simply is no easy way to get out of it. It was made to cause painful damage with removal. And that is perhaps the only part of Obamacare that actually works.
And understand well that this is 100% the Democrats’ and Obama’s fault. Yes, Trump and the Republicans take a bit of a whipping for trying to extricate us from it, but again that was by design. It was despotism from the get-go. And this kind does not come out easily or without pain.
is waiting in the wings to cause even more damage to the U.S. Just you wait. Like bad crotch rot he will come back.
the Dutch are starting to talk about no longer using the Euro. Wow. Are we seeing a cascade that soon will not be able to be stopped? Has “Brexit” caused a small hole in the dam and now the whole thing is compromised? Now we are seeing a small and relatively inconsequential country going that way. I mean, already France is making noises to that effect. If Marine LePen is elected President of France she will likely have France pull out of the EU or at least greatly reduce its presence. Already the EU is a dead man walking. If France leaves, the party is well and truly over.
surprise at all. I’m far from surprised. What about you?
If you are surprised, it is proof positive that you are just not paying attention.
Yeah, Obama is doing this. DUH!
in disarray. No House, no Senate, no Supreme Court, and no Presidency. They have also lost HUGE number in state leadership, and last election they lost states that they have relied on. I’m not saying things can’t change–the day is long. But it is morning in America. The dark night of the Orc is ending and there are glimmers of sun in the East…
CA is still hopelessly screwed up, but that probably won’t change until the state itself is broken up into more democratic pieces.
this. I think it is exactly what Trump needs to do. It is what he should focus on.
He does well in front of crowds. He needs to keep the campaign up. I think it also energizes him. It totally goes around the slanted MSM and speaks directly to the people. Yeah, he needs to do this.
