Joe Biden in 2016: "I would go forward with a confirmation process as chairman, *even a few months before a presidential election,* if the nominee were chosen with the advice, and not merely the consent, of the Senate, just as the Constitution requires.pic.twitter.com/eAdrDigc8S

If I see one more person post the meme showing that McConnell refused to confirm Garland in 2016 as a “confirmation” that we HAVE TO WAIT now, I’m going to lose it. Not the same scenario at all. Let me educate you. THREAD (1/7)

Just dug up this clip of Obama in 2016:
"When there is a vacancy on the SCOTUS, the President is to nominate someone, the Senate is to consider that nomination… There's no unwritten law that says that it can only be done on off-years. That's not in the Constitution text." pic.twitter.com/vrOi3DrkJN

Never ever forget what they did to Kavanaugh
There can be no mercy
This is a land of wolves now

In 2016, Hillary Clinton said on the passing of Justice Scalia
“The Senate has a constitutional responsibility here that it cannot abdicate for partisan political reasons.”
I agree with Hillary Clinton. We must #FillTheSeat

The overwhelming narrative on much of cable news points to Graham's statement and McConnell's actions in 2016. That's irrelevant now. After Kavanaugh and impeachment, all bets are off between the two parties. GOP moves ahead because they know it's exactly what Democrats would do. https://t.co/wgM8PuhxEy

In 2016 McConnell refused even to allow a hearing on Merrick Garland for 293 days, asserting that the American people had a right to weigh in on the matter in the next election.
It is the same scenario, you frickin’ pinhead—with the exception of the fact that in this case the most corrupt and widely loathed man to befoul the Oval Office in living memory would be doing the nominating, and the election in which the weighing in would occur is a mere 45 days away.
McConnell did the right thing in 2016. The president then was a democrat and the Republicans held the Senate. The president then was term limited and it was necessary for the people voting to have a say in the appointment. This situation is far different and there is no need to avoid replacement. rgb was done in 1993 in 42 days. We have 45.
The seat should be filled pre election so the court is unbalance, 5-4 should there be a need to hear challenges to the election.
And on BTW, greg, do stay on topic since you were bitch slapped by Curt for your diversionary tactic of hijacking threads
Look for a nomination this up coming week.
Joe Biden’s Reluctance to Release SCOTUS Shortlist Complicates Fight over Ginsburg Seat
Here is biden emerging from the men’s room ask to comment calls Ginsberg “justice” because he forgot her name.
Three RINOs, Romney, Murkowsky and Collins will vote with Dems even if President Trump puts a name forward.
My advice to him is to do his Constitutional duty and put a person in nomination for confirmation.
Then, at least he’s done the right thing.
Obama did the same thing.
Joe’s words could be brought up on the hour, on the half hour and whenever: The Senate Has a DUTY to Fill The Seat.
Neither one of the three has anything to gain politically by opposing the nomination. It would be political suicide and would surely end their respective political careers. However, in the case of any of the three should they oppose, good riddance.
Greg, you’re merely angry because 1) it could easily happen and 2) it won’t be to your liking. Suck it up, buttercup. Just like your beloved Barack Hussein Obama famously quipped, “Elections have consequences”.
@Greg: Not glad RBG has passed, but am glad this could stop corrupt Democrats from cheating in the upcoming election.
The Blue Church is breathing it’s last.
comrade greggy-poo: sit back and enjoy another 4 years of President Trump. The president can call the senate for a SCOTUS appt. following the funeral or as early as Monday morning. I know you love the muslim gay terrorist obama-shit, but you are still a Kafirs.
“We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices,” Trump wrote on Twitter Saturday morning. “We have this obligation, without delay!”
Since you do not like America or the President-move. just pack you belongings and move to mexico, south america, spain. I understand the Portugal is very cheap to live in. fat ass whoopi stated that if Trump won she was moving; than back peddled to the statement that “i was born in America” In 1937, there was a move in Europe to create a “living space” . bet you can not guess who’s design it was??
@Greg: Democrats have no honor. They respect no principles. They have done nothing for 4 years but lie and waste taxpayer funds trying to destroy Trump. They lied about Russian collusion, they lied about obstruction, they lied about Kavanaugh, they lied about Ukraine, they lied about COVID19. If they win the Presidency, Senate and House, they want to totally undo the Constitution to try and cling to power indefinitely… and finish their task of ruining this country.
If the roles were reversed, Democrats would not hesitate to do whatever it took to get one of their liberal activists on the Court to replace the radical liberal activist they just lost.
So, there are no rules. No quarter. No consideration… no HONOR.
FILL THE SEAT.
I would love to say, “You are wrong!”
If I were a liar I would.
But you are right!
Liberals are bad; but liberal “Republicans” are the worst!
Looks like murkowski’s term is up in the 2023 midterms. Time to primary her out. She has been a total disgrace.
ire in 2023
Class III terms run from the beginning of the 115th Congress on January 3, 2017, to the end of the 117th Congress on January 3, 2023. Senators in Class III were elected to office in the November 2016 general election, unless they took their seat through appointment or special election.
