Unfortunately for Schumer his party does not have the power to block a nomination on their own.

The fun part will be to see if the Republicans can work with each other long enough to secure a new conservative judge. My bet is that they can't.


I would place my wager on this as well.

Politicians are throwing themselves at the chance to slice off their nose.

What would the mid=term elections have to do with it anyway? Why wait. It is not like were going to have a new President, unless Shumer is trying to tell us something.
That was the first thing that came to my mind. Translated: "Wait until Trump is Impeached" and let the new president pick one...

Chuck should take this up with Harry Reid.
Harry made it all possible.


And he's living in his own private straight jacket now.

Trump will do what Trump will do best.

He doesn't like the obstruction from the Dems and quite frankly will most likely view it as such. I don't blame him for that.

Either way, ball is in Trumps court, so meh.

Harry is unavailable for comment at the current time as to try and avoid another black eye from "falling on the treadmill"

You know that a justice must be approved by a Senate vote, right?

Trump will be impeached before November?
Really?

Hysterical how the Dems keep raising the ante.

So the new rule is that if you reach a third of the way in your presidential term you don't get to appoint SCOTUS justices?

At this point, is there any doubt the Dems in Congress no longer believe anything the Constitution requires? No 2nd. No electoral college. No separation of powers. We already know both sides hate the 1st and 4th.

I could go on and on.

Can't believe I'm alive to see the actual inevitable destruction of the country. The decay from within is appalling.

LOL,

Will be funny if the R majority gets bigger.


I know. Is he hoping that the dems will have more seats? That would make an interesting thread. Countdown to Mid-Term.lol

When will they realize that they don't have or support a viable platform?



Their system is broken and they have no idea how to fix it.



Ummm...it’s not that they have no idea how to fix it...this is who they are...

They don’t even try to improve their viability...instead they double down on stupid and trot out either Nancy the stuttering mule...Schumer the burro faced idiot...or Maxine the jackass...

This three ringed circus is the absolute best they have to offer...

Sometimes I get the sneaky suspicion that they’re purposely destroying their party...

The question is...why...?

That's not what Schumer said. But Trump can't appoint a justice anyway. He can nominate one.

excuse me, didn't y'all cheer when they, with no legal basis, decided obama didn't get to nominate a justice even tho he had a year left in his term?

at least have the sack to own your hypocrisy.


Sorry. Big difference between President (who NOMINATES SCOTUS Justice) and Senate, who merely confirms the nominee. If you can’t see the difference, your bias is blinding you.

BTW...let Schumer keep it up. Just another talking point for the GOP to add to Maxine’s Democratic Leader posters...

Mike Pence? How is that any different than Trump picking the next judge? And that really is the difference. The Dems cant hold out for 3 years even if they take a slight majority in November. There will be a new conservative judge one way or another... the Dems should play the long game and not alienate centrists and independents by coming off as obstructioniary. They can't win this one no matter what they do.
