Oh, please. It never got far enough to blame him.

McConnell blocked the process.
 


From your own link...LAST paragraph, the part you edited out:

Which was followed by the part I posted.

It gets pretty complicated and hairy from here, as McConnell has numerous ways to block this: he can table the vote, or block the motion from even taking place.




You mean the part that never happened either.


That is a good point. So Obama did not push it as hard as he could have?


Not like he did with the ACA vote. He rabidly went after support from Congressional Dems for that.

Republicans in Congress claimed a speech Biden gave in 1992 prohibited them from voting. In the speech referred to, Biden suggested that when there was a vacancy in the summer or fall of an election year, Congress should hold off to give the incoming president say in the nominee.

Scalia died in the winter. This is one of the longest vacancies ever.

It wasn't even a rule or a law. It was a dumb speech by dumb Biden.

The standing ruling already limits abortions.
How late in the pregnancy an abortion can take place will be the ongoing debate, and such a debate will focus almost exclusively on the fetus. Science will lead the way. The rest of the issues regarding circumstances of the pregnancy and the rights of the woman have already been well covered.


It's much more complicated than that, and Roe V Wade isn't so much about "trimesters" as it is about viability. Some fetuses will never reach viability, no matter how late. And most doctors agree that it's better to abort a fetus with a dire prognosis before it goes into distress and causes the women to go into septic shock, kidney failure, heart failure, stroke, etc.

Nobody wants late term abortions, but fetal anomalies can't be determined before 20-22 weeks.

Are you saying that McConnell did not block the Merrick confirmation process?


I am saying that Democrats had the option of filing a 'motion to discharge' and the ball was in their court when it was dropped entirely.

Does the expression "pissing into the wind" mean anything to you?
McConnell could, and would have, blocked it.

Not when it comes to fighting for issues that matter.

Cool prediction. I didn't know you were into fortune telling.

The two parties don't even have to do anything to screw us.

I''ve seen too many laws written, not even covering exemptions for the health of the mother, which, I am sorry, but it should exist in every restriction that they come up with! unless of course, you think that a women should be forced to sacrifice her life, her health, for a fetus that many or maybe not become a living, breathing baby someday. miscarrying women show up at religiously controlled hospitals and are sent away, even when they are feverish and showing signs of infection, told that there was nothing that could be done, which was a lie!! heck one women was turned away twice, and they tried to turn her away again but she collapsed onto the hospital floor before she got out of their door... they're allowed to risk the lives of their patients...
no, it's not even close to being covered adequately.

And BTW, I would say that's what this Women's March was...pissing into the wind.

Doesn't mean I don't think they should have had it. I bet they did get people on board, even if I wasn't one of them.

This march was just the beginning of a movement, deal with it.

It won't be difficult to deal with a movement of Democratic-party sycophants. I've been dealing with it for eight years. It's not the beginning of anything new.

I am almost seeing it as something like an alliance that is being formed. all these different groups, with different issues, coming together. and we'll be seeing supporters of planned parenthood protesting with the pipeline protestors and the pipeline taking time to protest with some other group, and an attack on one group will become an attack on all..

not sure if what I just wrote correctly expresses what I am trying to say, but I probably should have gone to be a few hours ago...lol..

Republicans have a couple of years to think about that.

I am not a republican and I wouldn't know what they are going to be thinking about.

Nor do I care. Not even enough to google it.
