for Obama to say, well I don't care if it takes you 20 years to put it to a vote, you WILL vote on MY pick for the Supreme Court, END OF STORY!!!

This is a site for liberals and dems & we should be able to call out the deficiencies of the party & not be accused of not supporting the party.

8. Depends on whether you are known for saying the dems are corrupt or

both parties are the same or corp dems run the show, I could go on.

As long as one never says that garbage and as long as one ALWAYS says things like vote for ANY democrat because the alternative is NAZIS, then fine.

I am not saying anyone here says those things, I dont have the time or patience to research it, I am merely making a blanket statement because those things are said by some who claim to be democrats.

17. That would be an excellent theme

Have our Congressmen refer to the “McConnell Rule” on the floor during debate.
Point out that we are merely holding off on these appointments and bills so the American people will have the right to speak in the next election and decide what we should do.
However, for this to be effective we have to take back the House and, in order to delay judicial appointments, we need 51 in the Senate.

15. Sometimes I wish we had a Democratic leader in the Senate

...who's as big of an asshole as Mitch McConnell. But you know what? We're the good guys and I'm glad we don't. We can beat those assholes and still be good guys, I really believe that.

Hope and resolve, that's what we need to win this!

12. I was thinking this this afternoon.

In the case of a supreme court vacancy, in a situation where the ersatz orange President is facing impeachment and the Democrats control both houses of Congress, the argument that an indicted President is not going to be allowed to appoint justices, since they will all represent conflicts of interest.

The racist pig McConnell - having discounted the precedent set by the founding fathers John Adams and Thomas Jefferson in the case of the great Supreme Court Justice John Marshall - will have provided a perfect precedent.

The Republican Party is now the enemy of Democracy, an enemy of the constitution, and in fact, the greatest threat to this country since the Civil War, also started by racists.

It is ironic that in 1860 the least racist party was the Republican Party whereas the modern Republican Party is the most racist political party to have existed in this country for nearly a century.

do not let them pass any legislation, put roadblocks up, do whatever it takes. The press will not help like they helped the fascists when President Obama was in office so the fight must be as hard and mean-spirited as humanly possible.

21. Exactly! Especially considering Republican History with.. well.. EVERYTHING!

 

It wasn’t just the way they treated the nominations of President Obama.

Just looking at SCOTUS nominations, people need a refresher of just how MANY times the Democratic Senate Majority has confirmed a Republican nominee, and how few times a Republican Senate has confirmed a Democratic Nominee:

GW Bush got both Souter and Thomas on with Democratic Party Senate majorities.
Reagan got Kennedy on with a Democratic Party Senate Majority.
Ford got J.P. Stevens on - Democratic Party Senate maj.
Nixon got Burger, Blackmun, Lewis Powell, and Rehnquist on.
Ike got Brennan, Whittaker, and Stewart on with that same Democratic Party Senate majority.

NOT SINCE PRESIDENT CLEVELAND IN 1894 HAS THE REPUBLICAN HELD SENATE EVER CONFIRMED A SINGLE DEMOCRATIC POTUS SCOTUS NOMINATION.

We sooo need to stop letting our sensibilities, and desire for a more adult approach turn us into doormats again.. and again.. and again.

We allow them to impeach, and swamp our President Clinton due to Monica Lewenski, then let them get away with ELECTING a man who assumes the oath of office with how many accusations of sexual harrassment, sexual assault, and even one case of sexual assault on a minor? All without so much as an inquiry..

Don’t even get me started on what we allowed with Senator Franken, while they backed and tried like hell to get Roy Moore elected. Hell the only reason that jackass isn’t in the Senate is because of the voter turnout, and he STILL almost was made Senator.

We allow them to gerrymander the hell out of the red states where they have majority, yet do nothing to gerrymander our blue led states! WTF?? I get that we don’t agree with it, I get that it’s morally wrong, but we can’t keep sitting back and let them have the advanage of effectively disenfranchising the REAL majority of people all just ot maintain our higher ground.

I love FLOTUS Michelle Obama to no end, but fuck this whole “they go low, we go high” bullshit. It ain’t a-workin’.

30. Its a sad fact

No one here WANTS to have to get our hands dirty. We WANT to go high when they go low. We are after all, bleeding heart liberals. We have that 'disadvantage' of having a thing called empathy, a word mocked by the likes of Rush Limpballs. They have no desire to feel others pain, like struggling immigrants, racial profiled and harrassed black men, like teenage mass shooting victims. Even for Republicans that we think have been treated unfairly!

But now is a unique moment in history. Maybe one day Democrats can go back to folding their cards early and they'll actually get a gentlemans/gentlewoman's response and respect. When we can lead the way back to a less partisan divisive Washington. But that is not our job now!

Its almost like the MSM has also been so conditioned into following the narrative that we helped to build. So much so that Democrats are judged twice as hard as a Republican for the same 'crimes and misdemeanors'. If its a Republican caught, its "Oh well, he was an R, nuff said". A Democrat has evolved into a toothless domesticated animal, who is not a stubborn mule, but a donkey that will be led along and make sure they never step off the path lest they be yelled at by Fox News. Or worse, other Democrats.
