Hell, McConnell nuked the filibuster for SCOTUS judges. Reid did what he had to do at the time to get Obama's judges through since Republicans would have kept filibustering them.

    I support eliminating all filibusters, they are insanely undemocratic and prevents anything from getting passed.
    And the Dems started the filibuster tactic on nominees in 2003. Round and round.

Silly to try and pretend like one side is any different than the other on this.

    Wrong.

    how is it wrong. did Democrats support then President Obama nominating Garland, or not?

    can you or anyone name a time with a Supreme Court opening, that the President at the time did not nominate someone, regardless of how close it was to an election?

    Would of course want a moderate like Garland (or liberal for balance), but in the world of conservative justices itís a good pick.
    I agree. She also said that she wouldn't use her personal positions on things to make her decisions, and her record supposedly supports that position.

    As it should be. The SC should not be political at all.

    I agree. I'm not sure all the justices agree, and I'm certain the political parties don't agree.

    She is dangerous to any progressive law that has been established in the last 40 or so years.


    But thatís the way things have gone in the last 4 years and thatís what the people have allowed the GOP to do to try to revert back to older times.

    The party of personal responsibility is telling us to blame other people. The time of death of irony has been called.

    No but the Dems had the worst Senate map in history, they did okay considering that. Florida still hurts though. They had no business losing that. They held onto a bunch of seats in Trump states and picked up Nevada and Arizona.

    When the court takes its stab at Obamacare, Roe, or any number of important liberal programs; I hope some people (including myself) think long an hard about whether voting 3rd party was the right idea in 2016. My vote wasnít going to swing the balance. VA went strong for Clinton (with or without Kaine) but it was still the wrong decision. I let great be the enemy of good.

    I asked how she is dangerous. is your answer that you are saying she is dangerous simply for being Catholic. I don't think you want to say that.

    so because of her opinion and beliefs, that are different than the other side. if this makes her dangerous, then the people saying this are bigots.

    Wake up. Democrats are not upset that Trump nominated Barrett, but that McConnell and the Senate are blatantly and hypocritically backsliding on their actions from 2016.
