Posted on 09/18/2020 8:15:29 PM PDT by MountainWalker
Ginsburg is dead, and Trump has a pick to make. What are your thoughts on a nominee?
I had been thinking ACB, but Kavanaugh got 51 votes and that wasn't right before an election. Murkowski is already a no and Collins, Romney and Sasse are looming. That means you need to hold 1 out of 3 of them and every other Republican + Pence. I don't see any Democrats breaking ranks on this.
Much as I hate to say it, I think the Democrats have a fair chance to block this nomination, and if that were to happen, I want the optics to look absolutely horrible for them as possible. Nothing could be worse for them than watching them berate a black man or woman in the hearings and vote against them while asking black people to vote for them on election day. That might be enough to pressure some Democrats to confirm.
Of course, Cocaine Mitch is 2/2 in Supreme Court pics and knows his conference better than anyone, so hopefully he can counsel the president on the best selection.
any conservative women in Utah?
Collins has a very close election in less than 50 days.
Go ahead and vote no.
Would absolutely love it if they picked a black conservative woman for war gaming.
Any Republican Senator who stonewalls this will commit political suicide and they all know it.
The SCOTUS needs to be reconfigured to 3-1-5 prior to the upcoming election theft attempts.
If it throwaway vote for Collins, while the nominee gets confirmed anyway, and she saves her seat - FINE WITH ME!
Hope Murkowski tries making friends with a Kodiak bear.
It’s been done before.
Is this Karma for Democrats? They have poisoned the well so much on Supreme Court nominations, that this one could bite them in the butt.
If we have a solid conservative, if she’s a black woman, that would be ideal for the racial/sexual politics the liberals constantly play.
I want Sylvia Thompson ... but I dream a lot. There are one or two really scholarly black ladies Trump can choose from. He needs this momentum changer.
Can we find an strict constructionist who also is about 25 years old?
> berate a black man or woman in the hearings and vote against them while asking black people to vote for them on election day.
You underestimate their hypocrisy and the insanity of their supporters.
Ever heard of Clarence Thomas?
My thought is that Britt Grant, 11th CCA, age 42, is an ideal nominee for President Trump. Let the Leftists oppose her confirmation at their peril.
It’s still too soon to know what will happen, as far as the timing of confirmation hearings, and an actual Senate vote.
Things could change, based on whether they vote before the election, or if it becomes a vote by the lame duck Senate, after the election.
Things could change too, if Biden wins the election, but we still have a lame duck Senate controlled by the GOP.
The key dates are, Election Day November 3rd, the newly elected Senators take office January 3rd.
Lets dispense with the delusion that theres anyone President Trump could pick that would be acceptable by both his base and Democrats. There isnt. Liberals will attack a female black nominee with as much vigor and vitriol as they attacked Kavanaugh and they wont care how it makes them look.
Republicans need to grow the balls it takes to confirm the types of candidates that people who control both the White House and Senate would pick and stop trying to extend olive branches to people who hate them. Pick a judge based on his or her merit.
Saw someone else post Mitch could recess the Senate and Trump could make a recess appointment.
True. This is what every true conservative has been salivating over for years.
Nominate Amy and hold the Republic in the balance !
Yep we are not Democrats. We need to pick the best person for the job, period
