    You are mistaken. When different parties hold the WH and the Senate all confirmations are more contentious than when they are the same. Look at the history when they are not the same, there are a...

    No. I'm saying that when the President and Senate are in the same party the process of confirming nominations is very different than when they are not the same party. That is true regardless of the...

    The balance now is heavily favoring conservatives, then it was pretty much even. Then it would go from even to dominated by liberal judges. Now it would just reinforce the existing bias.

    So ... When Garland was nominated he would have taken a court that was essentially 4-4-1(Kennedy) to 5-3-1 which would then change the balance. If you want to consider Kennedy as a 5th conservative...

    It's a big difference when the Senate and Prez are in different parties. That is actually traditional for that to be a bigger issue for confirmations (regardless of the party in control of the...

    Of course it's hypocritical, what in politics isn't?

    And I think it really does matter that this situation is not really at all the same as 2016, nor does it make a difference. That opposing...

    Except 2016 was different. This is a Republican Prez and Senate, and it's the Prez' 1st term. That was a last term Democratic Prez and Republican Senate.

    I tend to agree Garland should have had...

    You didn't have enough space to not type "November 3"?

    O-kay.

    Law enforcement should not look for crimes for an individual. If Trump told the FBI to go find something on Biden it would certainly obviously be wrong (and I wouldn't be surprised if it happened).

    Yeah, but in this case it won't flip the balance, it will just reinforce it.

    The OP said on Nov 3. I don't think either side concede on Nov 3. There are WAY too many problems already predicted for that day to be the end.

    It's not "deep" to not like the false concept of "fair". It's marketing BS.

    What is "this"? The proportional fine idea? I think that's a bad idea. I've said it several times.
