Bullsh1t once again.

13 million became US citizens in 1986. Your loosing it salwn, you mind is slipping, along with your party.

It was and IS a ONE TIME deal, and we did it, with the stipulation it was a one time deal. But you lefties don't remember past yesterday, unless it is something to do with Trump, then you seem to remember decades.

Your party and by default, you are liars, not any better than the slimey scum that forms on a pond with stagnant water. Pond scum is were the Democratic party is today. Not worthy of the country they reside in.

You worthless fuq's are a drag on this country. You demoralize, lie, cheat, and yes steal, to get your way. If I had my way, we would have a hunting season complete with a cash bounty for dead Democrats.

This would clean up the county so every one could get along. As long as there are Democrats we will be divided.

Mc Cain is a washed up old POW who is only famous because of his dad. He is irrelevant in the Republican party as of now. I would imagine he is feeling this revelation about now...

Regards, Kirk

John McCain is a blithering idiot. Mrs Bill Clinton said in the debate that she will appoint a replacement for Scalia that will overturn Citizens United. If that happens the First Amendment will be nullified. Trump has published a list of his possible appointments and every one of them is a constitutionalist.

If that commie bitch wins she will make one possibly more SCOTUS appointments. That will make the court a rubber stamp for all the unconstitutional notions in the left wing agenda. She will start with executive orders on top of executive orders and SCOTUS will uphold every one of them. The Senate and House will be irrelevant.Our country will go down the tubes and I will blame every so-called Republican(like McCain, Ryan et.al.)who refuse to support Trump.

Question:

When we have a Republican president and a majority-Democratic Congress; and the latter refuses to just rubber-stamp whatever the president proposes; is that being "obstructionist"?

Or is it being principled?

Some might see a double standard here...

Some on the left are afraid that Hillary is going to nominate some middle of the roaders to appease the right or worse. More corporate leaning judges not really on board with "progressive" agendas but will to lean over for corporations and wall st. in cases. Judges willing to grant the president more powers and the like.

from my POV there's little chance she pick any good ones either way

As far a MCCain trying to block Whoever comes down the line.
why do both side forget what they did just a few years before.
then complain in OUTRAGE when the other side does the same kinda thing to them?
"In a 2006 appearance on ABC's This Week, then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) criticized Democrats for being unable to effectively articulate the case against then-Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito. Obama then expressed support for then-Sen. John Kerry's (D-MA) efforts to filibuster Alito. "I will be supporting the filibuster because I think Judge Alito, in fact, is somebody who is contrary to core American values, not just liberal values," Obama said. "When you look at his decisions--in particular, during times of war--we need a court that is independent and is going to provide some check on the executive branch.""

......
....When George W. Bush was still president, Schumer advocated almost the exact same approach McConnell is planning to pursue. During a speech at a convention of the American Constitution Society in July 2007, Schumer said if any new Supreme Court vacancies opened up, Democrats should not allow Bush the chance to fill it “except in extraordinary circumstances.”

“We should reverse the presumption of confirmation,” Schumer said, according to Politico. “The Supreme Court is dangerously out of balance. We cannot afford to see Justice Stevens replaced by another Roberts, or Justice Ginsburg by another Alito.” During the same speech, Schumer lamented that he hadn’t managed to block Bush’s prior Supreme Court nominations.....

10 Times Democrats Vowed To Block Republican Court Nominees
FEBRUARY 16, 2016 By The Federalist Staff
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-K.Y.) has vowed to block any of lame-duck President Obama’s Supreme Court nominations.

The media have taken to acting as if this move is unprecedented, and that a senator has never publicly stated he would intentionally block a presidential nomination. Not true. Not only have there been several lengthy Supreme Court vacancies, but there are plenty of past instances when senators refused to confirm a president’s nominations.

Here are 10 other times Democrats vowed to block Republican court nominees.

1. Sen Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in 2007 that President George W. Bush shouldn’t get to pick any more Supreme Court justices because Schumer was afraid the bench leaned too far Right. Schumer made this remark a whole 19 months before the next president was inaugurated.

“We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court, except in extraordinary circumstances,” Schumer said in a speech to the liberal American Constitution Society. “They must prove by actions, not words, that they are in the mainstream rather than we have to prove that they are not.”

2. His remarks in 2007 weren’t the only time Schumer vowed to stop a Republican nominee. In 2004, he said he would do everything in his power to stop Bush from elevating Charles Pickering to a federal appeals court in 2004.

“I’m prepared to do everything I can to stop the nomination of Justice Pickering,” Schumer said. “We can do a lot better.”

3. Schumer again promised to make the nomination process difficult for President Bush amid a confirmation battle over Carolyn Kuhl, who was nominated as a judge to the Ninth Circuit Court.....
10 Times Democrats Vowed To Block Republican Nominees


But i'm sure someone will tell me what OBVIOUS an HUGE difference is here.
why they were all COMPLETELY justified and right. while When a republican doesn't it it's Completely INSANE, off the rails evil and NEVER heard of .

We should all remember Justice Clement Haynesworth (nominated by Richard Nixon) Justice G.H. Carswell (also nominated by Nixon); and Justice Robert Bork (nominated by Ronald Reagan).

Oh, wait.

These judges never did become Supreme Court justices, due to the Democrats in the Senate, who rejected them all...
