McConnell should have considered Obama’s nominee and rejected him. By not doing so he has given the Dimoctrats ammunition to help fuel this bonfire we find ourselves in. Remember we may value logic and the law, the lemmings however see the world through a lens that is colored by feelings. It’s like dealing with a 15 year old agonizing about how unfair some slight real or imagined is. Some never grow past the idealism of youth and are easily led over the precipice even when the dangers are apparent if one just stops and looks.I expect that as with a lot of you, I have been following this....somewhat closely. Again, on Bott radio, they had a person whose name I didn't catch or recognize who went over what I remember as being 29 times the same situation has arisen in the past, when a seat on the SCOTUS was vacated during an election year. If I remember right, almost exactly half were when the President and the Senate were of the same party and the other half, they were of opposing parties. Nearly every time, when the President and Senate were of the same party, the President submitted a nominee and he/she was approved. The other half, when the President and Senate were opposites, the nominee was not approved.
Therefore, there is significant historical precedent for exactly what President Trump is doing and, as usual, the demofascists are lying about it.
Now, having that knowledge in hand, I am in full support of the President doing precisely what he is doing. The only instance I could remember was when McConnell would not bring Obama's nominee to the Senate floor. My sense of fair play, which is meaningless when one is discussing demofascists, thought the President should wait until after the election. I no longer hold that belief. Just proves a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
