A shock report from Washington has Democrats in full panic mode as they contemplate the possibility of yet another conservative Supreme Court justice.
A bombshell report in the left-leaning Politico makes it very clear that Senate Republicans are ready for a major battle over a Supreme Court nomination.
It’s not immediately clear if top Republicans have inside knowledge of a retirement or vacancy. But one thing is clear – if a vacancy arises, Trump will nominate, and the Senate will confirm.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s hospitalization this week and the looming end of the Supreme Court’s term raise the prospect of yet another prized vacancy for President Donald Trump. And if there is a surprise opening or retirement in the months before the presidential election, GOP senators plan to act on it, despite denying President Barack Obama a Supreme Court seat in an election year.
The article goes on to quote the major players in the GOP-led Senate. And it goes on and on about the perceived unfairness of the Merrick Garland nomination process in President Obama’s last year.
Earth to Democrats (and yes this includes the media): if you want to confirm your nominees, win the Senate.
Remember the days when the Republican party was led by non-entities like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan? Those days are over.
Even holdovers like Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell have suddenly found their spines. Love him or hate him, you cannot argue the fact that Donald Trump has transformed the GOP into an elite fighting unit.
Democrats beware – no amount of media propaganda will save you from a Republican party that has learned to punch back.
