    Trumpís SCOTUS Nominee

    Maybe it could be merged with RBG thread but in the event we can split that into RBG conversation again and this on the new pick discussion, here goes....


    Report now that Trumps favorite is Amy Coney Barrett. 7th circuit (IL, IN, WI) court of appeals justice who used to work for Scalia.


    She hasnít been vetted before which is a bold move considering the right timelines to get this done.

    I'm so tired of the political games. Unfortunately I see no way it ends or even decreases any time soon.

    Maybe if we fixed some fundamental aspects of our election systems we will get more diverse representatives to the point where they can't try to market to us as just 2 groups of us or them.

    Catholic and pro-life, but she also said she doesn't believe those things should determine her choices as a judge.

    Her decision history seems to show her to be a fairly dream conservative justice other than maybe not enough judicial activism compared to others.

    Mitt Romney: I think that the president has committed acts that warrant his removal from office.

    Also Mitt Romney: I think the president should get to continue making life time appointments to the highest court in the land.

    Me: You dense mothe****er!
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.

    It's not about reality it's about political expediency.

    Whining about voter suppression? Honestly, youíre going to tell me that whining about that problem is worse than creating the problem (lest I remind you thereís actual settled court cases and audio of gop reps admitting to these tactics).

    Both sides are horrible in this. Debating the degrees of how bad each side is just distracts from the core problem. We are lead by two corrupt parties that profit off our bitter divisions. Cable media profits when they ran the flames. Social media profits when they force engagement and fights.
    when anyone says something like Democrats should start playing dirty, as if they are not already, they are full of ****.

    While true to an extent the level of vetting will get much more complete now.

    the shortest it's ever taken to complete this process is 47 days....it's 46 days to election day
    ...the norm is like 72

    ....however, we also don't know how long it's going to take to know results of the election
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    I'm guessing it's either Amy Coney Barrett or Barbara Lagoa. From what I've read they both would be great picks for the SC. I would be shocked if it wasn't either of those two. Though I would put my money on Amy Coney Barrett.

    So does a delayed result mean the timeframe to put a judge in is also extended?

    If so, no doubt this is a top Republican priority...

    It means that it will happen regardless of what is said during the confirmation hearing. Trump is seeing absolutely horrendous polling numbers across the country including states that should be a layup. But the Supreme Court is a unifying aspect of the conservative right. Hell even the Lincoln Project backed off to allow a conservative to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg to get replaced.
