Yup. It's very infuriating

They may not (probably won't) get their Trump puppet into the WH, but they may cling on to the Senate and hold the House (courtesy of the Koch Bros.) so that they can at least obstruct and frustrate Hillary Clinton. If they hold on to the House and Senate, I predict they'll claim a mandate to help pick the next SCOTUS Justice and make pretty much anybody she nominates (if Garland is not already confirmed) unacceptable to confirm. Which is why it is imperative that we at least capture the Senate.

I can't wait

to hear him unload all of the stuff about Republicans I'm sure he has been repressing for the past 8 years.

They have moved the goalposts

now that it appears that Hillary is all but certain to win. Now, they feel that the American public should decide who replaces Scalia............in 2020

WTF is it about Scalia that they admire so damned much? They can't handle the fact that he couldn't manage to hang on until another Republican gets elected? Well, too f***ing bad for them! Bush "won" in 2000 and 2004 and got to fill two vacancies and as much as I hated him and as much as I'm sure most Democrats disliked him, we all NEVER ONCE questioned his constitutional ability as President to nominate new Justices to replace the retired/deceased Justices. The thing that is even more galling about this whole affair is that Republicans have been sitting on their hands SINCE FEBRUARY so as to deprive President Obama, who was duly elected (twice), of his ability to fill the vacancy despite having nearly a year left in his term. Garland could have easily been confirmed by now if the GOP Senate had not been playing these stupid games!

Is there *anything* Trump can do at this point

to make the race competitive again? Is there anything Clinton could do that would make this competitive again? GOTV is going to make or break the election, of course, but right now, it seems like Clinton is starting to run away with the election. Trump seems like a walking dumpster fire.

unless you just happen to believe that nothing *should* get done in Washington DC but then again, if you don't think anything should get done, then what is the point of having Congress? They might as well just pack it in and go home if the public really wants nothing done.

Funnily enough, I didn't hear a whole lot of complaining from independents or right-wingers when Bush had an ultra-Republican Congress rubberstamping his agenda/policies for 6/8 of his (P)residency. When I hear stuff like this, what it means to me is that the people spouting are usually right-wingers/right-leaning "independents" who want a President who won't will blow up the world (i.e. Trump) but they also don't want DEMOCRATS to do anything like, you know, help people get access to healthcare coverage or any of those hippy-dippy "liberal" things. They also have a "rosy" view of bipartisanship and how likely it is to happen on the Republican side (which I hope nobody still actually harbors illusions about after 8 years of rampant obstructionism by the GOP of President Obama)

Every time

The Democrats are in charge, the GOP yells and screams about the debt/deficit and demands cuts to existing programs and fights against new ones but they have no problems with spending trillions on the military and running up the debt/deficits when they are in charge. It's all so predictable (and tiresome).

For anybody

Who thinks that a Trump Presidency wouldn't be a big deal because even a Republican Congress would eventually throw him out (ha ha), they obviously haven't considered that a Pence Presidency would NOT be any kind of improvement.

So, THAT was his "bar" that he had to exceed?

Once again the "The Party of Personal Responsibility"

Taking NONE of it. BTW the Republicans have barely tried to speak to Obama about anything for 8 years and basically told him to go f**k himself when he tried to fill the latest SCOTUS vacancy for the past 7-8 months. Let me take this opportunity to NOT care what McTurtle has to say and I certainly don't blame Obama for not wanting to either.

Obama vetoed it and the REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED Congress overrode the veto. If they had some concerns, why didn't they fix it instead of making it law and then expressing concerns about it? Oh yeah, they're worthless.
