Posted on 07/07/2018 7:09:53 AM PDT by JLAGRAYFOX
The Democrat Party, as a political force and unit, will do all that it can to deny POTUS, Trump, his choice to choose the next POTUS appointed & Senate, confirmed Associate Supreme Court Justice. This action, IMHO, is a big and devastating political choice/action which will further hurt the Democrat Party politically come, the November Mid-Term elections.
I suspect somewhere between three & five Democrat Senators will vote to confirm Trumps choice, but, one can never be sure....so, we will have wait and see how this plays out. However, I can safely assure the voters that Democrat "Nay" votes will not save any Democrats from being defeated in November.
For instance, Democrat, Senator, Bill Nelson is running for Senate re-election in Florida. At the moment he is in a tight race with Republican Governor, Rick Scott, now leads Nelson by about five points from recent polling.
If Nelson votes "Nay" on the Trump Choice for the Supreme Court, he is as good as politically dead in Florida. Many other Democrat, Senators are in the same boat as Nelson. The Democrat Party has fractured itself apart, with many stupid emotionally, hateful, related moves. Opposing Trump on this one, while it appears it is a good, great political move...it is not that at all!!!
Sorry, Dems...elections have consquences...period!!!
Why do you think Schumer wants to delay the SCOTUS vote until AFTER the mid term elections?
Have the vote before the election - Trump wins either way.
1. Getting his SCOTUS pick confirmed
2. Having a major issue to defeat dem senators - especially in Red States
Dems lost. Pound sand. The dem party is good for nothing but harassing innocents in restaurants.
Everything with Trump’s name on it they will oppose. They don’t need a reason. It’s a sickness.
McCaskill-D is at risk in red state MO.
It seems possible she might feel pressure to vote yea.
The 'rat center cannot fool the truth/reality seekers anymore and certainly can't hold the lunatic fringe out there on the edges of civilization.
The controllers have lost control.
Less than 100% support will be a big and devastating political choice/action for the GOP.
Summary....it's going to get interesting. Could there be a Constitutional crisis if they can't get a SC judge approved? Would the rogue judges on lower courts then be the final law of the land?
Pray the backstabbers and some of the more reasonable dems care more about their nation than to let that happen.
McCaskill is done. She got lucky last time, but things are different now. The old adage is fool me once, shame on you- fool me twice, shame on me.
Call in the coroner. The DNC is dead. It is being replaced by a party where union control and government dependence are the perks. Americans working again and a booming economy are bad news. A full out socialist millennial, mad Maxine, Nutso Nancy, and condescending Chuckie are the faces of tomorrow.arrange for a hearse.
The RNC should take note. Years of stupidity and corruption eventually destroy. Get with the program or be prepared to find millions walking away from you as well.
Can a no vote from Casey , Stabenow, Smith, Brown , Baldwin please hurt their November numbers. They are not listed as Toss up races.
My guess is that Manchin and Heitkamp vote yes, the rest of the Dems up for reelection vote no. Reasons: Trump got about 70 percent of the vote in both WVA and ND; they can’t win without Republican support. Manchin’s primary opponent, however, was a leftist loon with no money who still got 40 percent of the vote so this may push him to vote no. It sets up a wonderful situation for the Republicans - especially i the nominee is Amy Barrett who will bring out evangelicals and conservative Catholics in droves.
You are 100% correct...Trump wins either way. Too bad the Democrat Party is in the process of self-destroying itself!!!
I know you all are going to think I’m insane or high on drugs...but, the only way for the Democrat Party to save itself from utter political destruction, is to return itself to a center right political party, which by the way, is what our country favors by an overwhelming majority.
The truth sometimes hurts....but, the truth is still always the truth.
If the Rats block the appt it will do more to further their agenda than any other single act. When out of power, the Rats have very successfully used crooked judges to further their agenda of attacking US citizen taxpayers.
That might happen when the temperature in hell reaches 2 degrees F. Claire is dogma driven Rat slut.
That was a given from the very start.
The Democrat Party is obsessed with power, and will not rest until it has as much control over America as the Communist Party has over Red China.
The Democrat Party has never been for progress only for total power the party of Karl Marx.
Best thing Democrats up for election can do is vote for Trump’s pick. It is the only thing that might save their seat in November. Schumer is going to tell them to vote for the pick. It will be 59-41 so the rats can scream about not having 60 votes.
Schumer is certainly working on Collins and Murkowski. If McCain dies before the vote on the nominee, and Cindy McCain is appointed to his seat, she may join Collins and Murkowski in voting with the Democrats to hand Trump a defeat. Flake and Corker will likely pile on to hand Trump a major defeat.
McConnell, unlike Schumer and Reid before him on the Democrat side, has proven time after time he will not use the dirt he has on members of the GOP caucus to hold them in line for crucial votes.
If Trump loses the Supreme Court vote, expect the Democrats and Republican defectors to keep any Trump federal judge appointments from happening until the elections. If the GOP fails to increase its majority in the Senate in November Murkowski, Collins, and possibly Cindy McCain will be the swing votes and most powerful Senators. The press and the Democrats will love having three GOP female Senators blocking the conservative agenda. Effectively they will be a female “gang of 3”. If the GOP loses the Senate, Schumer will be picking judges for Trump’s last two years. Otherwise, no federal judges will be approved.
In many ways Mitch McConnell is the second most powerful elected official in Washington. He controls the legislative agenda, blocking conservative legislation from the House and allowing GOP members to freely join with the Democrats to strike down key initiatives of the president (Obamacare repeal for example).
Trump could nominate Hellary and they’d defy his choice. It’s not about country, it’s about their hatred.
