Elections have consequences.
...and its the republicans fault for not battling her nomination.

There seems to be a general view that it shouldn’t matter who goes on the SCOTUS, because it is a benny for the president who won the presidential election. Somehow, someway, we have gotten to the point that Repub’s feel disinclined to fight nominees. This lack of will is a disservice to those that elected them. Frankly, they should be thrown out next election.

SCOTUS definitively shapes the culture of our lives. They determine what is allowable and acceptable. Reversing a decision of unelectable, politcally appointed people, is nearly impossible. Any element of our society, whether political or societal, that can shape culture is the business of those we elect.

The first part of what you say is true. But the Republicans didn't have the votes to stop confirmation. Simple as that. It was a lost cause. Dems were in total contol of Senate.
