And you truthfully believe that the GOP leadership will "afford" this courtesy?

The presidential election starts earlier and earlier with each passing election - it can not be used as the barometer. No where in the Constitution does it state that a justice should not be nominated during an election cycle. The Republicans had a constitutional responsibility, and they abandoned it over partisan politics. It was a shameful act.

The President has the right to appoint someone to the court, and that appointee should be heard by Congress.

Garland should have gotten a hearing. Period.

What happens from here on out began with the Republicans refusing to give a hearing to Garland.

he's already filed for re-election. we are in an election already. we cannot confirm a SCOTUS nominee while there's an election going on.

see you in 2020.

Like it or not, the guy knows he has a bullseye on him. Smart move if you were. Make the opposition go after the substance.
uh, no. the reason he filed immediately is because once that form is filed he can legally begin accepting bribes "campaign donations".

Yep. All these protests are fine and dandy, and can instill a bit of hope for society....

But until the elected officials do something about what's going on, it's all visual, self congratulatory action.

The only way congress stands up to Trump is if their own financial interests get shit on. Until then, it'll be lip service.

every time i think "okay, deep breath, it is what it is, stop dwelling on just how absolutely asinine it was that millions upon millions voted for a reality TV star to be president and move on to simply fighting policy" something like this comes out, and i smash my head against a wall.

I am continually amazed at how he is incapable of letting any slight, perceived or real, go.

Seriously. How does that not bother his supporters more?

You wanted to be president, Trump. With that comes criticism of anything you say or do. Put a sock in the whining and deal with it like an adult.

That's not how it works. The Constitution requires the President to submit nominations to the Senate to seek its advice and consent.

Given the outcome in November, it is not a stretch to believe that inviting the public to weigh in via ballot will result in Judge/Justice Judy nomination.

I don't think there's any doubt in any thinking person's mind, that this administration WANTS a war.

In terms of war, Iran are a whole different prospect to Iraq. My airline route flys over the country as well in 5 weeks :-0

This shouldn't be surprising. If you're Christian, there's a good chance you generally believe God is in control. Hence, you would believe he had a hand in the election. Hell, I'm not happy with the results, but I believe that for whatever the reason, God was ultimately in some way or another "responsible" for the outcome, in a sense, simply because I believe in God.
