Seems a fundamental position voters should know about, and know now....


I guess it depends if ACB is rushed onto the court, doesn’t it?

Thanks, Mitch. For everything.

No, it doesn't.

Vice President Biden should give voters his position on expansion of the Court.

President Trump should give his position on white nationalism.

Oh wait, he has. Multiple times.

I think that we can all agree that a decision cannot be made as to who is more qualified and suitable for the office of the Presidency between Joe Biden and Donald Trump without this key nugget of information.

Why though? Like why should he? Does he not owe it to the game to intentionally avoid taking a stance now because that alienates votes for people who want a reason to not vote for Donald Trump?

What about this Supreme Court situation makes you think there’s any reason why one side owes the other side any form of good faith? There’s no good faith in politics.

Hmmmmm... possibly 11 seats and a functioning democracy, or 9 seats and our democracy crumbles, civil war ensues and we spiral into complete corrupt authoritarianism... hmmmm... I’m undecided.

Personally, I've not yet seen or heard enough from Donald Trump over the last 4 years to make up my mind.

I suggested Biden should give his SC stance.

Agree there is no good faith on any side.

Except here

But what if you are trying to find a way to give yourself permission to vote for Trump, despite literally everything else?

It's quite a different approach than their usual both-sides-itis.

I absolutely think Biden should add 2 more justices.

I also think he should be coy about it, because the election is too important and he must win, so he should do what he can to reduce this as an issue. Like Obama with SSM. We all knew he was for it, but was being cautious. Which is what Biden should do.

But this is my opinion. I’m not sure what he thinks. Generally, Biden is literally always at the center of his party. There are some D’s for saving the legitimacy of the court, and others who might be willing to let the illegitimate Trump court stand as is. He probably isn’t totally sure what he thinks, since RBG wasn’t even in the ground before Trump danced on her grave with a replacement and McConnell and the GOP kids said they’d approve literally anyone (as they have, with the parade of objectively unqualified judges on the lower courts).

Yes. I realize, I’m asking him to be evasive. I realize this could be disqualifying for some, especially in the face of the virtue, morality, and rectitude of Donald J. Trump.

I don’t care about him being coy. I’ve heard too much “hehe suckers” from the other side so I’ve kinda given up on politicians ever being good people. I just want the republicans to pay for the disgusting society they’ve created.

13 please. The same number as the best amendment (I can be convinced to go to 15 or 19).

Also, I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that Barrett wants to overturn Roe v Wade. The President assured us her views on this issue were not known.
