Please read this rather satirical article. Then tell me why the Dems are stating they will filibuster.
He's not a bad guy. He is a constitutionalist and the liberals only like a portion of the constitution. The rest is very inconvenient for them.
The libs will oppose anyone because they haven't come to grips with the fact that they lost the presidential election and also no longer have control over congress. Opposing something and pretending you have control is easier than looking in the mirror, and asking, "Is it me?"
When Obama chose a candidate for SCOTUS, the Republicans wouldn't even give him a hearing. So now it's the Dems turn. And I don't blame them one bit.
On his first day in office President Obama had 7 posts filled, without rebuttal from the Republicans.
The Democrats have stalled each and every appointment by President Trump.
President Barack Obama has made two successful appointments to the Supreme Court of the United States. The first was Judge Sonia Sotomayor to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Justice David H. Souter. Sotomayor was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 6, 2009, by a vote of 68–31. The second appointment was that of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to replace the retired John Paul Stevens. Kagan was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 5, 2010, by a vote of 63–37.
I know all of that. We aren't talking about Obama, why do people keep going back to what he has done, rather than focusing on what this President is doing. Or nominating.
You brought up Obama, lady.
And as far as "So now it's the Dems turn. And I don't blame them one bit."
Does that also apply to the Republicans making use of the "nuclear option" that the Democrats came up with to bypass any Republican opposition?
"Now it's the Republicans turn, and I don't blame them one bit".
I expect that's what they will do, man! The Republicans started it, they could of at least had a hearing for a nominee that even the Republicans thought was a good choice.
I hope the nominations gets stalled indefinitely, but it won't, the Democrats will vote him in.
Actually, the Democrats started it. Because they refused to work with those on the other side of the aisle.
For example, Obamacare was passed in the middle of the night with no Republicans notified, invited, or present. Because the Democrats didn't want to risk public opposition.
Sing it any way that helps you sleep better at night, the Democrats made the rules, now they get to see what it's like to have them used against them.
Focusing on what President Trump is doing, he's doing exactly what he said he would.
Your words: Focusing on what President Trump is doing, he's doing exactly what he said he would.
That's exactly why everyone is so upset. A war with Iran in the future.... I hope someone can reign in this guy before that happens, because we will be all alone. The Aussies are mad, Mexico is mad, China is threatening, Iran won't stand still for his bullying, even the Brits are trying to keep him out of their country. Germany isn't too happy with his actions either. Before long he will make Canada mad too. Time will tell.
Have a good day.
If there is a war with Iran, it is because Iran is being aggressive, violating UN sanctions, and would make use of the nuclear material that our former President gave them, so they could "start their power plant".
I'd rather have a President looking after his country and it's citizens, instead of looking forward to his next late night talk show appearance, any time.
Good day to you, madame.
Right, because Republicans never would've filibustered Hillary Clinton's pick had she won. Republicans always just automatically accept every decision Democrats make because they're more noble.
To be clear, I don't think Gorsuch is a horrible guy. But let's not act like this kind of stalling and opposition is limited to one side because this is unmitigated bull.
I agree with your intelligent reply. Someone mentioned the fact that Obama had, on his first day in office, 7 posts filled And that's true, because all the nominees had been properly vetted. The nominees that Trump has nominated have NOT done the proper vetting, that's why the Democrats are postponing the voting. Once they answer all the questions, fill in all the blanks, have been properly vetted their conflicts of interest, their business interests, their associations with the KKK, then the voting will begin.
And then we have someone thinking it's OK to go to war with Iran because Iran is aggressive, North Korea is aggressive too, we going to go to war with that nutcase too, and evidently they think cozying up to Russia, the most aggressive country in the world, is fine and dandy, even lifting sanctions.
And now he has made our most trusted ally, Australia, mad. It's hard to believe. Who will be next, Canada, UK, France, Spain.
Mexico is already on that list, Trump will never make Mexico pay for the wall, even if he puts a 20% tariff. The Mexicans will do the same to us, and prices will be so out of reach that another depression will occur....maybe that's what Trump and Bannon want. Tear up the States, and be partners with the communists...Russia.
Trump is out of control, and if someone doesn't stop his erratic and irrational behavior we will have another Hitler on our hands. Hitler could have and should have been stopped, but people cowered and did nothing, and look what happened
No, he has not. And no one is Hitler but Hitler. Get a grip (or get lost).
