Face it, if Senate Republicans wouldn't have invoked the nuclear option we would have kept our hands tied needlessly. We all know Dems would do the same thing when or if they ever regain control of that legislative body.

This will reduce the debate time (ie stalling tactics) and allow our confirmations to proceed without further delay.

No other option dealing with the Resist party. The demos literally have nothing to offer the citizens other than resist Trump.

Democrats have been doing as much damage as possible to marginalize the court systems.

Their little Cloward-Piven scheme has been exposed and reversed 😎

One more part of the -zer0Bama+Clinton 16-year plan stopped 😎

Harry Reid had the full support of the president and all the mainstream media when he did it. Reid got the ball rolling.

Thank you Harry!

The President should be able to pick the people he would like to work with him in the white house. I think a thorough FBI search should be done on these people to make sure they are not traitors or tied to some bad business, but I think that as long as they pass the test they should be allowed to be appointed. If the opposite party dug up dirt on the president's selections like the Democrats are doing now, nobody would be in the White House ever when there is an imbalance created by parties. The Democrats seem to have had a lot of crooks in their white house teams throughout history, it is not just the Republicans. The Democrats should not try to ban this practice, they may need it in the future, once it is blocked, it needs to be permanently blocked. The Dems think they can just reverse this kind of stuff when they want to.

I can't believe the Democrats. What a bunch of a holes. At least the Republicans never blocked any confirmations from being delayed.

Or it's a travesty of justice for a minority to push their agenda on the majority.

Depends on the way you squint when you look at things.

From a Conservative/Republican point of view.
Re: www.theepochtimes.com...

It's good to see that Mitch McConnell feels the Senate will belong to Republicans for a long, long time.

McConnel is correct here:


 “We cannot set this new precedent that the Senate minorities will systematically keep an administration understaffed down to the least controversial nominees anytime they wish somebody else had won the election.”


The temper tantrum by the Trump Haters is SO unprecedented, it's causing us to have to change rules, because nobody ever foresaw elected officials behaving in such a petty, unethical way, DELIBERATELY OBSTRUCTING THE CONSTITUTION AND THE CONSTITUTIONAL PROCESS HANDED DOWN TO US BY OUR FOREFATHERS.

They didn't foresee congresspersons DELIBERATELY AND OPENLY HURTING AMERICA WITH IMPUNITY when they made the rules.

Bastards.

Finally, turkey, turkey, mcgobble grows a pair.

But because he waited so long, level headed Democrats who don't lie to themselves about these sorts of things even understand that at this point the left that's in office is pure obstruction; it's been over two and a half years.

“This systematic obstruction is unfair to our duly elected president and, more importantly, it is disrespectful to the American people who deserve the government they elected,” McConnell, R-Ky., said on the Senate floor Wednesday before the first vote. “We cannot set this new precedent that the Senate minorities will systematically keep an administration understaffed down to the least controversial nominees anytime they wish somebody else had won the election.”

Free healthcare, free college, income for not working.

And since the u.s. is filled with 1 third unintelligent 3rd worlders now and growing. A big portion of the country is now on board.

the rules were written for a civilized senate that made some effort to do the right thing
and conceded defeat when appropriate. you guys won, we'll get it next time.

no one envisioned the hyperpartisan democrats we have today.

I don't find a breach of protocol humorous in the least. Mitch is out of control and has been for years. Republicans will not hold a majority rule forever and what goes around comes around. And therein lies the problem.

Pete ("Mayor Pete") Buttigieg is the only one I've seen so far that just has no hint of radicalization and comes close to being level headed. He even pissed off radical Dems when he told the truth about Clinton and how she lost the 2016 race for herself

Rare indeed!!

Correction, Harry Reid started this mess. We're only using tools while we have them available.

And if somehow Dems every retake control, we'll figure out how to negate them/their actions when it comes to pass. Until then, ensuring pro-Constitution judges/SCOTUS is a top priority. You can control all three branches and our SCOTUS/courts will ensure only Constitutionally permissible laws are enacted

The "progressive" agenda drowned the minute Kavanaugh/Gorsuch and 50-some Federal judges were put in place. We aren't "fundamentally changing" this country, no matter what kind of majorities you end up with. Leave our country alone


Republicans will not hold a majority rule forever


Want to bet? Come back after 2020 and see how much you still think that


what goes around comes around


Yes, so you would do well to remember that advice. Stop with the hoax retaliatory investigators, constant false claims, 24/7 media attacks and tyrannical & severe abuse of existing laws/statutory authority to attack this President.

Mueller CLEARED Trump of any sort of "Collusion" delusion. The investigations are done. Unless you want to see retaliatory investigations against every last Dem subversive, traitor, socialist infiltrator and media conspirator.

Not only are the Democrats a resist movement against President Trump but are constantly changing the game and attacking the Constitution. The latter of my comment is the most dangerous. I have people who work close with me who believe this BS. I am amazed. Thought people were smarter than that.
