You mean the nominee that SHOULD have been blocked, and Dems themselves had previously said it was wrong to do the very thing they were trying to do? Don't put their hypocrisy of the Biden rule get you down.

Obama was elected in 2008, not 2016. You said literally nothing that disproved my post.

Should? That's a value judgement that's certainly debatable.

Republican Senate leaders said that they refused to hold a vote on any potential nomination. They refused even holding hearings, let alone an official approval, or denial.

The nomination of Merrick Garland (a judicial moderate and centrist whom even republicans like Orrin G. Hatch had previously supported) remained before the Senate for 293 days which is more than twice as long as any other Supreme Court nomination in history.

That is "real major Republican support" (something you denied ever occurring) protesting Obama so hard that they even denied a hearing for a nominee that republicans liked.

Yes, Obama was re-elected in 2008, and "real major Republican support" was protesting him all the way to the end of his 2nd term. It wasn't just "fringe/tea party" shenanigans like you claim.

Democrats agreed with Republicans. Biden himself said it should wait until after the election.

You are mixing up citizens rioting and politicians, apples and oranges. Try to compare like things.

Again, it may not be the type of "protest" you're thinking of, but actually denying hearings on nominees is far more meaningful of a "protest" than random people outside holding some handmade signs.

Anarchists hardly ever make handmade signs, so if you see someone with a handmade sign then you're probably safe.

That said, Anarchists love a protest and are more than happy to go stir up trouble regardless of which side is holding the signs.

Sorry, politicians have nothing to do with the average citizen, apples and oranges. Try to compare like events.

Biden agreed with what the Republicans did, so it was bipartisan protest against Obama.

Not to mention that it was hardly without precedent in American history. I think it was Andrew Jackson whose Congress hated him so much that they pretty much rejected every SCOTUS nominee he put up, something like 4 or 5, and at least two of those never got hearings.

No it wasn't, and Biden never agreed with what the republicans did.

With Bush, Biden argued that if a Supreme Court seat became vacant during the summer, President Bush should wait until after the election to appoint a replacement, or else appoint a moderate acceptable to the then-Democratic Senate.

That's what republicans labeled the "Biden Rule".

Obama appointed a moderate that republicans had a history of supporting, and republican senate leaders said that they refused to hold a vote on any potential nomination. Very different than the actual "Biden Rule".

Then why did you make an absurd argument like...


originally posted by: OccamsRazor04
Most of what happened with Obama was a fringe, the Tea Party, with no real major Republican support.


... if you feel that "real major Republican support" is "apples and oranges".

No, Biden said no one should be appointed.

President Bush should consider following the practice of a majority of his predecessors and not — and not — name a nominee until after the November election is completed.


So why was Obama going against what the norm is, and what Biden said was right?

Apples and Oranges.

It's like talking about how much nationwide support the NY Yankees have by polling Bostonians.

So "real major Republicans" are not "people".

Got it.

Yes. How many million Americans are there, how many in the house and senate? Thanks for playing. Nothing says you lost like the inability to keep the debate honest. A senator is not the average American citizen.

Democrats wanted to block Obama too, so why are you blaming Republicans, it was bipartisan. His own party was against him, I quoted Biden.

Exactly, and each member in the house and senate represents those average Americans, or they lose their seat.

Which is why you constantly "moving the goalpost" is a glaring admission that you've run out of valid arguments.

You quoted Biden referring to Bush, not Obama, and you conveniently left out Biden giving Bush the alternative of appointing a moderate acceptable to the then-Democratic Senate. Proving you're misconstruing his position, and not keeping the debate honest.

Biden never refused to hold a vote on any potential nomination like the republican senate leaders' stance with Obama.

You're comparing "apples and oranges".

Yep, I was in a discussion about gay marriage, (something I think is OK) playing devil's advocate, and was called a breeder. Then I laughed and it got much much worse.


A "breeder", because, gee, continuing the species is somehow "wrong"!! What they really want to push there, I believe, is designer-only babies, with people choosing the sex, looks, and even personality traits. They want to destroy what it means to be human.

The people acting as Brown Shirts should remember what happened to them once their own representation that they fought for finally attained power.
