The GOP Sitcom Just Got Serious

Of course, if (when) McConnell sells out conservatives again to preserve the ridiculous prerogatives of his beloved debating society and lets Obama’s pick get a vote, it’s over. Sanctimonious little GOP trolls like the repellant Lindsey Graham will eagerly confirm whichever Che-loving creep President Fail sends up the Hill. And the GOP will be broken for good as we conservatives depart in disgust, half voting for Trump and ensuring his nomination and half simply checking out. Either way, that’s likely to mean a Democrat president, a Democrat Senate, a Democrat Supreme Court, and an inevitable rebellion (maybe merely political, maybe much worse) against the socialist blueprint liberals will attempt to impose upon a country left undefended by the Constitution progressives hate and will never enforce. No more games, no more clowning around. There’s no question Cruz and Rubio will nominate real conservatives. But The Donald? Donald Trump’s frivolous speculation about appointing his ultra-liberal federal judge sister to the Supreme Court was vaguely amusing when it was just a hypothetical; now we need real answers. We need the names of the real, committed conservatives he would appoint to replace Justice Scalia. “I’ll find the best people, brilliant people, fabulous people” won’t cut it. Who, Donald?

We don't need Harvard lawyers. We need folks with common sense who will tow the line as to the words on the paper of the constitution. Scalia, although he claimed to be one of those, was not. Even he said that the gov't can regulate rights. [but then now they are permissions by doing so].

Hope you are feeling well.

The constitution requires the president to nominate a SCOTUS judge.
It requires the Senate to vote on it.
They should do so thoughtfully and expeditiously.

Let's not pick and choose what parts of the constitution & Bill of Rights we believe in.

Kurt Schlichter bemoans the fact of "a country left undefended by the Constitution" yet he calls "patriot" G.W.Bush who proclaimed the Constitution just "a goddamned piece of paper".

With friends like that, who needs enemies?

If he's looking for a candidate who is serious about adhering to the Constitution, he shouldn't be relying on the GOP.

Anybody who truly believes Obama will not nominate Justice Scalia's replacement - and soon - is welcome to put a small ($20K) deposit on a parcel of that prime bottom land I'm selling. Just 3 short miles from beautiful downtown South Padre Island.

(Cash only, please, and in small bills.)

Donald " the Chameleon " Trump would most likely appoint Judge Judy.

Carl Stevenson said...

Trump said today that he would definitely appoint another Scalia. A true conservative who would scrupulously fools the constitution.
I believe I believe him. I believe he's on this, at great expense in both $ and time, because he believes what he says. I think he's sincere in his stated goal to turn things around and make America great again, by dismantling the two-headed snake of the entrenched demopublican establishment.

We are certain that any Dead Elephant Party candidate will appoint a judge that 0bammmy would love. In the interests of ``healing,'' or in fear of being thought racist, or in fear of being thought ``insufficiently bipartisan,'' a Dead Elephant Party president is likely to appoint 0bammy himself. Trump might do better than any Dead Elephant Party candidate, while any Dead Elephant Party candidate is a recipe for disaster.

Trump beats the Dead Elephant Party. As of today, he has my vote.

Trump is Obama in whiteface.

I think the Constitution speaks very well by itself, notwithstanding people slant or bent INTERPRETATIONS of the words.

Article two, Section 2, QUOTED directly says "The President shall be commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states, when called into the actual service of the United States; he may require the opinion, in writing, of the principal officer in each of the executive departments, upon any subject relating to the duties of their respective offices, and he shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.

He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.

The President shall have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate, by granting commissions which shall expire at the end of their next session."

All else you buffoons keep saying about what the President CAN DO and the SENATE MUST DO is complete and utter BULLSHIT.

the staggering ignorance of the people proves why the corruption by US FED GOV officials has been so successful, counting on the people to never rise up and abolish their corrupt action under penalty of death.

Oh no, you go along to get along by arguing your various Group think ideas instead..You dicks should try READING the Constitution instead of following along with the new age Group think/speak...Reading is fundamental, comprehension is the key. Reading better than a kindergarten full of retarded kids is always a benefit.

Actually, there is no requirement that the senate vote and confirm a nominee. And there is nothing in the constitution about the number of judges on the SCOTUS. In fact, there is precedent for the senate allowing nominations to die on the vine.
