Is Trump at the end of two terms and a lame duck?
Definition of Democrat hardball, time for Republicans to play the same game.
The lame duck period starts the first Wednesday, following the first Monday in November of a presidential election year, if the sitting president was not re-elected. It does not start in February, but nice try.
I mean we can set up a seperate account somewhere....
Mitch McConnell is a POS who has no regard for anyone other than himself and possibly his self-serving corrupt parasite of a wife. The turtle is another sociopath who infiltrated government in a position of power where in reality, he has no moral or ethical right to be. It is not surprising that so much hatred and disgust is directed towards him...he has more than earned it.
He's at the end of one term and therefore able to allow for public opinion in his choice by not making it until after the election. If PO is still in his favor he will win and no harm is done. If he doesn't win then the public won't have to suffer through yet another choice by a President nobody wanted for the next several years. The Presidential thing for Trump to do is wait to 50 odd days to see what happens. Rotsa Ruck on that.
McConnell has already said he will confirm Trump's decision and his reason is blatantly partisan hypocrisy, with him actually saying so.
How anyone can say they believe in political ethics, honesty, and even basic human decency while still voting for ANY Republican this year is beyond me.
And the feckless establishment Dems will roll over and take it. That is just one of the many reasons that they need to be voted out as well. We have no actual opposition party.
Now, now, it was an entire hour....almost.
It took him that long to get up the courage to violate an old woman's dying wish. Lightning hasn't struck him yet so I guess God is resting.
Or maybe the Deity decided to put his energy into preparing Mitch's place in Hell, since nothing he could do would change a Republican's mind concerning doing the bidding of his Master anyway.
Yep that's me!
It wont be tRump's pick anyway,,,it'll be the choice of McConnell's boss.
tRump just does whatever he's told
What a disgusting attitude. I don't like McConnell, either, but it's up to the residents of Kentucky to get him out. Actively cheering for the murder of ANYONE is about as anti-American as you can get.
It was Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats who ended the 60 vote SC filibuster rule back in 2013, down to a simple majority. So now you get to reap what you sow, and I'll enjoy every minute of it.
I think they want "originalists." Judge Barrett comes to mind.
It was overturned, modified is just a nice word used to placate the overly emotional.
The old woman's dying wish is irrelevant. It's not up to her to decide who picks her successor.
I hope Trumps puts up Amy Coney Barrett, so all the Women's Marchers can rip off the "Sisters empowering sisters!" mask, and start baying for Amy's blood like the leftist hellharpies they are.
Obama was at the end of two terms, a lame duck and had an opposition Senate. Trump is not a lame duck and has a loyal Senate and were it Biden who was President he would be doing the presidential thing and sending a nominee. The Democrats can pound sand, they like to play political hardball, well here's a tasted of it.
The replacement for Scalia took a year.
Obama like Bush43 was lame ducked two years before they left office when they lost the Congress.
"one whose position or term of office will soon end...
Examples of lame duck in a Sentence
The President was a lame duck during the end of his second term.
Is this mandatory now?
And? Since when has ANY politician care about hypocrisy?
Welp its official if McConnell does this the gloves are gonna be completely off.... hope it pays off and it's not something in 100 years people point to as a reason why the United states is no longer
Protesters outside McConnell's home use his own words to demand delay in filling Ginsberg's seat
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A group of more than 100 protesters gathered outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's home Saturday in response to an announcement that the Kentucky legislator will push to quickly fill the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
Laura Johnsrude of Prospect, Kentucky, was one of several protesters at the rally who brought a sign reading, "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president."
McConnell used those same words after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016. That year, McConnell led Senate Republicans in deciding to block then-President Barack Obama's nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to replace Scalia because it was a presidential election year.
A fair point but I think Trump & McConnell are going to take that off the table by getting a nominee on the bench before Election Day.
