Trump Has Dems Painted In A Corner With SCOTUS Nomination

Recommended Posts

President Trump has the Democrats painted into a corner with his pick to replace Justice Kennedy on  the United States Supreme Court. The President is very popular in Indiana, Florida, Montana, West Virginia, North Dakota, and Missouri.

 

Scenario 1:  Several Democrats are in a vulnerable position. They either break from the Democrat Party or will not be re-elected. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Jon Tester of Montana, Bill Nelson of Florida,  and Joe Manchin of West Virginia will likely be defeated if they vote against Trump's pick. Any of them breaking away defeats the Democrats either now but if they side with the Democrats, it defeats them a scant few months down the road.

 

Scenario 2: Same as scenario 1, but add in Debbie Stabenow of Michigan.If Trump nominates Raymond Kethledge f Michigan and she votes against him, Michigan voters will turn on her.

 

Trump has painted the Dems into a corner that they will not get out of.

Plagiarized.  What you meant is "find the right wing article this post plagiarized."

Nothing much to plagiarize.  It's an observation that all of us can see.  Democrat party senators in red states can vote in favor of Kavanaugh and stand a good chance of keeping their seats or they can vote against him and stand a good chance of losing their seats.  In the former scenario, we get a justice of Trump's choosing.  In the latter scenario, we get a justice of Trump's choosing and the GOP picks up a seat or two in the Senate.

If it's only a political decision, all the Democratic senators have to do is wait and see what Collins and Murkowski do and vote exactly the same way.

 

If the republicans have 50 votes (plus Pence), then he's confirmed no matter how the democrats vote.  That's exactly what happened with Goursch.  Democrats aren't going to be the decisive vote, republicans are.  This happens all the time on a number of issues.  Once the outcome is determined, senators/congressmen are released by their leadership to vote their state/constituency.

If the judge is qualified and fair- minded, then who cares. Having a slight conservative leaning isn't any more disqualifying than having slight liberal leaning as long as they interpret the law in a fair manner.

the bigger worry here is he is for expanding powers of the executive branch. 

 

but most of the complaints ive seen on kavanaugh's past rulings have been fairly petty.

lol wat?

 

The Republicans control the Senate and the new rules require a simple majority to confirm this Judge. Once McConnell gamed the system, not even Dotard could fuck this up.

 

Whoever Trump nominated, outside of being some nutjob extremist, was going to get confirmed and there is nothing the Democrats could do about it.

 

Ooh that master chess player Trump, he really outfoxed the Democrats this time!
