    I am SO glad Muskie created this to stick all the politics in one place. It’s fine if you need a release here, but if it leaked into everything else (as can and does easily happen), it becomes extremely tiresome and Xavier basketball loses it’s focus. In this thread, you can decide whether to participate or shy away.

    You love your polls don't you. You probably had your champagne on ice in '16 waiting for Hillary to win. ALL the polls and media said Trump had NO SHOT!! Do you really want me to post the video of Dems and the media prior to the election saying Trump will NEVER be president?

    Both sides are hypocrites. The same guys who are saying wait were castigating McConnell four years ago for doing just that.

    50% of your 'pubs voted for it. So I guess they're full of crap. Stop belittling your own party!

    Direct quote: “The Constitution requires the president to submit nominations to the Senate for its advice and consent. Since the Supreme Court was established in 1789, presidents have submitted 163 nominations for the Court, including those for chief justice.”

    It’s not up to “the people”. It doesn’t matter what the people think.

    It’s not up to ignorant liberals who believe their means justify their ludicrous ends. Stupid narrative.

    Let the nut jobs tear into her like they did with their fabrications and lies about Kavanaugh, and watch them lose more votes in the process.

    Economic policy.

    Law and order.

    Basic decency.

    Biden, liberals and the Democratic Party are epic failures in all 3 key categories.

    Why wasn't that also true 4 years ago?

    Because Republicans had control of the Senate. They were not required by the Constitution to go forward with the President's nomination.

    If the Democrats had control of the Senate 4 years ago, Obama would've got his person on the Supreme Court.

    Study the history of the Supreme Court nominations. What the Republicans are doing is not something new. I know the Dems are saying it's not legitimate, but it DEFINITELY is.

    So, you are completely ignorant of how it is supposed to work?

    4 years ago has nothing to do with anything.

    Because, like it or not, the GOP wants the Supreme Court more badly than Democrats do.

    They also understood that "Politics start at the local level" a decade ago (well, maybe at the state level) when they started gaining legislative and gubernatorial majorities for most of the states. At least Democrats have finally understood the importance of the latter.
