I hear this. A friend said when told her... isn't that good for most people? I practically snorted ! But I feel bad for his family, close friends and after a few days later sad for him AND yet ..still he did a lot of damage to broad swarths of people in certain rulings...so...

yeah, can't hurt us anymore. Mixed feelings, yes.

Wow, such logic.. wow.
According to some people, yeah.

But I also think their motives for doing so would be very different from the current Republican party's motives for opposing Obama's pick. The GOP's refusal to support anything Obama has put forth during his time as president (including things the GOP themselves were originally for until Obama got on board) has much deeper, and often much uglier, reasons behind it.
Yup. There was a group of Republicans i think either the night before Obama's first Inauguraruon the right wing republicans met in a DC restaurant and basically said they'd stop everything Obama would try to do.

ML ,nice to see you here.

I hopeand pray that if Bernie gets the nomination ( I like him- I'm afraid tho, he'd be "McGoverned"
(McG was my first presidential vote @ 19 yrs) that his supporters will not sit the election out or write in another person, or vote for som thirrd party person.

There was a report issued in either Great Britain or England that over a 100 yes or so it showed that when conservatives were in office more people got suck, more people died. Surprise!!!

I like Hillary too even if she's sometimes tii Centerrist for me. And because I was listening to Public radio and some progressives repadio talkers I knew Obama wasn't going to be as liberal as some people thought

Sounds like ol' Barry just CTRL+F'd "pro-choice republicans" for the Scalia replacement, just to make every congressdouche look like an asshat. They'll have two options:

1) chew out their own kind and call them 'unqualified'

or

2) look like total dumbasses as they fail to hold their ever so firm stance that "the people" should get a say in the next election

Sandoval is definitely a trial balloon to gauge GOP reaction. It is a smart play.

Mmhm. Fortunately, that plan hasn't entirely worked out in their favor.

A bad thing. It means unabated objection.
